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.

How do I prepare for a house cleaner?

There are several things you can do in preparation for a house cleaning to improve the efficiency and quality of the job. If you’re unfamiliar with a cleaning service, hiding and locking away any obvious valuables lying around can offer great peace of mind.

Depending on the preference of the cleaner, you may need to lock up your pets before the cleaners arrive. Washing dishes and decluttering the house allows a house cleaner to do their job more effectively. And leaving special notes for the cleaners about certain areas in your home that need attention is also helpful.

Ask house cleaners near you about their tips to help you prepare for their 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.

How often should you have your house cleaned?

The frequency you should have your house cleaned depends on several factors, and the best professional house cleaner can give you a rough estimate of costs so you can budget how often you need someone to clean your home. 

Daily house cleaning may be necessary if you have a home with a large number of bedrooms with young children and kids, although other homeowners may benefit from weekly house cleaning. A weekly cleaner can clean the bathroom, kitchen, do laundry, vacuum and mop. An occasional deep house cleaning is most beneficial for people who have recently renovated a home or are looking to do a spring clean. 

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.

The cleaning was for a move in, the house was completely empty so was expecting baseboards to be cleaned cabinet to be wiped out. There was no furniture or appliance to clean, so just felt like it could. Have been cleaner, floors and bathrooms were great

Donna was immediately responsive to my needs for a double house cleaning job; more like a "spring cleaning", top-to-bottom task. She brought along another person to help, which took them about 5 1/2 hours to complete. They left us with seemingly brand new houses! Will definitely hire again, not only for one-time special needs, but for semi-regular cleaning to keep our household neat, clean and fresh! Donna is my kind of A-Team.

Michelle is coming every other week to clean my house. So far so good! She has done a wonderful job. She even cleaned all the baseboards in my home the first time. I appreciate her hard work. She is providing her own cleaning supplies and has been right on time each time.

The best cleaning duo around! Our old house has never been this clean. They get every nook and cranny, every slat on every blind (we have a lot of windows!), every baseboard, fan blades, the oven, every dusty corner...basically all the things we hate to clean, plus the regular cleaning. And they don't just dust and vacuum around things - they pick everything up and clean underneath, and they move the furniture. The first time we hired them, they stayed all day until the job was done. Seriously worth every penny, and then some!

Donna Warren has been cleaning our home for about two months now, and we are extremely satisfied. Mutually, we have determined the high standards of house cleaning that are acceptable to us, and Ms Warren works toward that end on every visit. We look forward to a long and most satisfactory arrangement. She definitely rates 5 stars and more.

I absolutely was astonished by the work Z did. She never stopped working straight through 10 hours atleast! She amazed me with her work ethic and that’s hard to come by. I will certainly hold onto this company. She cleaned every tiny detail in my house. Didn’t miss a beat on anything. I can’t say I’m impressed a lot but I can say I’m super impressed with Caldwell cleaning service

They did a wonderful job! I hired them to clean my Mothers house and she was beyond pleased with the quality of work they did. They were able to come out within 3 days of our first contact. They went above and beyond our expectations. Thank you so much Marlene and your crew! We will definitely use them again!

Things were cleaned that I didn't even realize how much they needed to be cleaned. I have decided to keep the services ongoing and look forward to the next time! ***UPDATE*** I’ve been putting this post off for a while. I don’t want to do it but I don’t make empty threats so here I go. I had been looking for someone to come in and clean my house for a while. I hired Christina Guillen dba Christina’s Cleaning and Organizing. She had more reviews than anyone and I thought I’d give her a try. First she was adamant about $75 an hour, $150 total. I thought if she did a good job it was worth it. When I got home I was pleasantly surprised. It was cleaner and smelled good. The bathroom was especially good. She couldn’t deposit my check so she came back after I got home for cash. We stood on the porch and talked a while she wanted to come back every week or two and I let her know there was no way I could pay that and she was ok. Said she’d come once a month to clean and chose one room to deep clean. It might take as long as a year but she could get it done, I thought we had a deal. Then I didn’t hear from her. At 6 weeks I contacted her, she said she got a new calendar and lost my number. Then she said she would come on a day, she didn’t have my address because, it was in the old calendar, I told her to come another day. I had a key cut for her and waited for my cleaning again. The day she finally came it looked like she didn’t even clean at all. I had an Amazon purchase on my table that she said her daughter did the room and didn’t know where she put it. Still to this day I haven’t found it. The house didn’t even smell different than when I left. I was so disappointed so I ask her for my key back. Not saying anything about the crap job that was done, I just needed my key back. After 4 times of promising she was going to get it to me she has stopped even responding to my texts and Thumbtack messages. All I want is my key back, I’m sort of afraid that since she has a key to my house, I shouldn’t post this but it just makes me mad. I feel like she not only stole my key but the last $150 I paid her for a service that was not provided.

VERY THOROUGH!!! They truly clean all you nook and crannies and know what cleaning means. You also get an up front price without a run around. They truly do this job to help and not just make money. I was amazed how some people charged so much and all you get out of it is an organized house and counters wiped down. Then they want to charge you $100+ to actually clean! These two understand what clean means like my momma taught me and it's not viewed as something to charge extra for. You buy their service and they do you right. My house looks even larger with everything so bright and clean! They also don't give you the run around on price. Most places say they can come out to give a quote or will tell you when they show up and give examples on prices. I needed to hire someone because I was running out of time to do it myself. I work and go to school full time and have two little ones at home. I don't have time to schedule multiple appointments for quotes. You won't be unhappy with these two. Very respectful, thorough, and have a true servants heart without any complaints and happy to help. I mean that comment in its pure, slightly biblical way and not as an insult. I can tell they do this not only for the income but to help and bless families like myself who are so stressed and burdened with a hectic schedule and to help provide some relief from that. Thank you guys! If I had the money I would set up a weekly plan, but will definitely use them the next time I can.
