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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

How much does it cost to deep clean a house?

Deep cleaning a house goes beyond the surface level to clear out the dust, grime and gunk that’s collecting on the fan blades, hiding in the blinds, and built up inside the refrigerator drawers. Deep cleaning of a home or apartment costs more than regular house cleaning because it takes more time, effort, and cleaning products. You may choose to have a deep cleaning once or several times a year in addition to your standard cleaning services. You may have a one-time deep cleaning to prepare for company or to clean after a house party. Companies may charge an hourly rate or a price per square foot, or may offer you a flat rate after they have visited your home and estimated work time. The national average house cleaning price is $110-$150, with rates ranging higher for deep-cleaning services. Here are some examples of how a company may calculate their deep-cleaning prices:

  • 10 cents per square foot (compared with 5 cents per square foot for standard house cleaning).
  • $300 for a 3,000-square-foot home.
  • $25 per hour per worker for deep-cleaning services.

How do I choose the best house cleaning service?

When searching for the best house cleaning service near you, consider the depth of your cleaning needs, your budget and the size and condition of your home. Read reviews from verified customers of any cleaning service that you’re looking to hire. Also, check out the reviewers’ photos and do background checks on reviewers to ensure they’re not employed by established cleaning firms or maid agencies.

My house is spotless and smells so fresh after the thorough cleaning Anna did today. She was right on time, showed me what she was going to use to clean my wood floors, and worked diligently and quickly. She was very detailed. My house has never been so clean! I will be setting up recurring cleanings with this company.

Incredible ... absolutely incredible! Margarita and her team did a fantastic job deep cleaning my house. The house looks brand new after the team worked their magic. The Strong Hands team worked their butts off to clean my house. So many little touches ... every detail was attended to ... including those things I've never thought to clean or do. I am blown away by the results and saw firsthand how Margarita and her team will stop at nothing to make your house feel like a luxury spa hotel getaway. The hardest working team I've ever seen ... with the best outcome. Will definitely be arranging to make Strong Hands Cleaning my reoccurring home cleaning service.

I was so glad to find Jessy’s Cleaning Service for my daughter who lives in Arlington, VA (I live in GA). I was at my daughter’s house when Jessica and her team came to clean the house. I’ve been using several cleaning services (company and individual) for my own house over the years. I was so impressed how thorough Jessica and her team were. They truly did an amazing job! My daughter and son-in-law never used cleaning service before, but after they looked the result, they’ve decided to use Jessy’s Cleaning Service regularly.

I hired JVA House cleaners to do a thorough deep clean of my home. We needed someone to come in and help ensure we were bringing our newborn back to a clean house, with no dust or dirt. They did a fantastic job and worked with us to use organic cleaners. The place turned out great, they spent the time required to ensure we were satisfied, we're going to use them again!

I could not be happier with the cleaning services I received today. At the last minute my cleaning service that I’ve relied upon for 5 years could not make it — and we are having a party! I went to thumbtack to find someone who could clean my house the next morning. Jeanette’s cleaning service responded and I could not be happier! They were punctual, actually early. Brought their own supplies and cleaned my house better than it has been cleaned in a while (and I have a number of kids and a dog). I will certainly be using Jeanette’s Cleaning services in the future! I highly recommend them!

DVL cleaners did a fantastic job deep cleaning my house. I was especially pleased at how they were understanding and flexible regarding our contractor working on some flooring at the same time as the cleaning. They are very friendly and I will use them again.
