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. 

What should I ask a house cleaner or maid before hiring them?

There are many questions to ask a cleaning service before you hire them to make sure they’re the right fit. These questions might include:

  • How much do you charge?
  • How do you set your prices -- per hour or per square foot? Or, do you charge a flat rate?
  • What is your past work experience? Can I see a list of references?
  • Are you accustomed to working with different home or apartment types and sizes?
  • Can you work with children or pets in the house?
  • What types of cleaning products do you use?
  • Do you bring your own cleaning supplies and products?
  • How often can you clean my home?
  • Is there anything you recommend I do (or don't do) to my home before you arrive?

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. 

Reviews for Arlington maid cleaners
Alison P.
I just had my first cleaning with Easy Clean Maid Services. In my experience living in a city, previous cleaning services were rarely on time for early morning appointments. I appreciated how punctual they were. These ladies did an AMAZING job! I've used several cleaning companies in the past and none of them have done such a thorough job as Easy Clean Maid Services. My boyfriend got home from work and couldn't stop commenting how clean the apartment was! I like that they rotate each cleaning and do a deep clean on different rooms - kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, etc. I highly recommend using them!

Nidia's express maid service was excellent. We had a full move out deep cleaning service and they did not disappoint. Marlene was very punctual and contacted me when they were finished cleaning. I would definitely use them again for any cleaning service!

We are happy we chose Easy Clean Maid Services for a move-out cleaning. They said everything that they would clean and did an amazing job. They were on-time, worked quickly and thoroughly cleaned the home. We are satisfied customers who would hire them again and recommend them based on our personal experience.

My experience with Easy Clean Maids was great. I used them for a move out clean. After living in my apartment for 2 years it had accumulated dust I never knew about, but the ladies at Easy Clean made everything look just as it had before I moved in. Definitely would recommend

Mrs. Green Clean Maids was very responsive and able to work on very short notice. I liked how the work was checked and verified to be done right before sending me an invoice. I would use again without hesitation.

Easy Clean Maid Service did an amazing cleaning for a 1 bedroom move out. Scheduling was easy and they picked up the keys from the concierge as I wasn’t on location and cleaned the apartment before I got there. They did a thorough cleaning of the oven, fridge, baseboards, bathroom and spots that were left on doors and carpets. They were also friendly and easy to work with! I would recommend them for any deep cleaning needs or move out cleanings!

Lia and Anna did a great job. They came on time and clean my house very fast and professional. So far they did the best job compare to other maids came to my house. I certainly call them again to set an appointment in future.

I hired Nidia's Express Maid Service for a move out cleaning that required a quick turn around. The day after we moved out a new tenant was moving in and we definitely did not have the time to do a deep clean. Nidia's to the rescue! They came in and cleaned leaving the condo smelling wonderful and looking great! They were thorough and timely and we were able to happily pass the keys off! I would hire them again in a heartbeat!

I must say that i am very glad that I went with Mrs. Green Clean Maids Cleaning and Moving. Price was right. Geni and her team did an amazing job. I hired them for carpet , local moving , move out and in cleaning. Booking was easy. We set up a date and everything was professionally done. The 2 guys that moved our belongings did a great job. Moses was very responsive and helpful. No breakages or damages. Carpet looks like new and house cleaning was spotless and extremely clean. I have hired for recurring cleaning for my new home. Job Well Done!!!!
