Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a house cleaner during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The best way to set up a consultation with a house cleaner during the COVID-19 pandemic is by using virtual, online tools. Start by performing an online search for local house cleaners. Message them to set up either a phone call or video call to perform a consultation. During this call, they can give you recommendations and may be able to estimate the cost of their services. Be sure to discuss whether they accept virtual payments and any precautions they can take to perform the job safely.

Can I use digital payments to pay for house cleaning?

Not only do many house cleaners accept digital payments through platforms like Zelle, PayPal, Square Cash, Google Pay, Venmo and more, but this may become more common as the COVID-19 pandemic pushes more service workers to digitize. This means you can pay your house cleaner without making physical contact or handling money. 

If cleaning is absolutely essential during the current crisis, consult with the house cleaner beforehand to ensure a safe monetary transaction that complies with current government guidelines and recommendations for social distancing.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a house cleaner when social distancing?

If you hire a house cleaner to clean the inside of your home, do not make physical contact. Stay at least 6 feet apart at all times, sanitize any surfaces after cleaning and wash your hands thoroughly. Exchange all payments digitally instead of with cash. When contacting a house cleaner, put a plan in place to ensure everyone's safety.

How can I find out if a house cleaner is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

A house cleaner is generally not considered an essential service sector during the coronavirus pandemic. To find out which services are considered essential, visit your city and state government, and read their guidelines. A national list of essential service providers can be found on CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 site. This webpage lists 16 different infrastructure sectors considered to be essential. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Does a house cleaner need to enter my home?

Yes, in almost all cases a house cleaner needs to enter your home. However, a cleaner may not need to enter your home if they are solely cleaning outside areas. 

There may be some cases in which a cleaner is necessary. If so, take precautions — avoid being in the same room, make no physical contact, sanitize any surfaces and pay through a digital service instead of using cash.

Do house cleaners offer remote or virtual services?

House cleaning is generally done in person, but some may be willing to offer remote services. If you find a house cleaner’s profile that states they’re offering remote services, contact the pro to talk about your options. 

If you’d rather hire a house cleaner to clean your home when the pandemic is over, you may be able to book an appointment at a later date. Start by comparing local house cleaners in your area side-by-side.

Should I hire a move-out cleaning service or do it myself?

You may benefit from hiring a professional move-out cleaning service, depending on your budget, time frame and whether you will be getting a deposit back. Hiring a cleaning service takes the stress out of your move. But if you’ve had your house regularly deep-cleaned, or if your landlord will charge you for cleaning anyway, you can save costs by DIY-ing it.

What is the difference between a housekeeper and a house cleaner?

Although some house cleaning and housekeeping duties might overlap, a house cleaner is charged with the top-to-bottom cleaning of a home. House cleaner duties typically include basic and deep house cleaning, such as washing and sanitizing countertops, floors, tubs, toilets, kitchens and more.

Housekeepers or maids are hired to lightly clean and maintain certain aspects of the home. This might include dusting, washing dishes, changing sheets, doing some meal preparation and restocking the client’s groceries and personal care products.

It’s also worth noting that a housekeeper or maid is usually one individual employed to a home (sometimes hired as a live-in), while a house cleaner is oftentimes accompanied by a team of cleaners. 

What are the different types of house cleaning services I can get?

There are several services offered by professional house cleaning companies, each suited for a different purpose. These services include:

  • Standard cleaning, which is a basic cleaning typically done on a weekly or monthly basis;
  • Deep cleaning, which is a detailed cleaning with more intensive work than a standard clean;
  • Move-in and move-out cleaning, which is a detailed service preparing a home for residents moving in or out;
  • Green house cleaning, which is a service that uses eco-friendly cleaning supplies and products. 

Aside from the type of cleaning services available, homeowners may also choose daily, weekly, monthly or one-time services.

How much should you tip maids or cleaning services?

Tipping between 15 and 20 percent is considered an appropriate tip for maids and house cleaners — just as it would with a barber, food delivery driver or taxi operator. During the holidays, you might want to consider tipping a bit more. 

It’s important to note that some housekeeping and maid services might include a tip within the service fee, which should be explained to you in the service contract. Talk to house cleaners in your area to find out what's included in their fees.

Ana and Antonio deep cleaned our house which was completely in need - when they were done it smelled good and everything was sparkling. They have an incredible attention to detail and I can't believe how clean my house is. Definitely recommend.

I highly recommend Green Team Cleaning! I am pregnant and the house was in desperate need of a deep clean. Green Team arrived right on time, and left the house spotless and smelling amazing. It’s super important to us to keep all products within our home chemical free, so that was a huge perk, as well. We look forward to booking Green Team for our next cleaning!

It was amazing! Our home was cleaner than it’s ever been before. Diane’s cleaning made me second guess my own cleaning ability: so I even know what it means to clean? I now know I will never reach her standard- but I’m so thankful our house was cleaned by her team! You will not be disappointed!

If I could give Magic Cleaning ten stars, I would! I have never had my house cleaner. Under furniture, ceiling fans, baseboards - everything is clean. Fredy and his wife are always on time and always responsive. They are always pleasant and willing to do to anything. I could not be happier with Magic Cleaning.

Tiffany is great! I needed my condo cleaned. She does exactly that. She’s not here to pick up my mess, she is here to clean. Not do my laundry or make beds.... clean! My house is sparkling!! Smells so good! I highly recommend her!

WM did a wonderful job cleaning our home for our Deep clean in advance of real estate listing photos. They were also extremely flexible on timing and were able to accommodate us last-minute with an oven cleaning. They cleaned the blinds, the baseboards, the microwave, the shower and baths, and even the ceiling fans. The house smells lemon-y fresh and is ready for our listing photography.

Cornejo was awesome! I reached out to her, looking to get our new house cleaned before we moved in. She was able to come in the next day and did an amazing job. Our house is spotless and smells wonderful. We will definitely be using her business on a regular basis!

Both did a wonderful job and got to our apartment with no problem. In a house with 3 animals, the hair can be crazy! This is exactly what I needed to celebrate my birthday and relax. OH and it smelled amazing the second I walked in the door, gotta love that clean house smell. Thank you!
