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.

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.

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.

Taelor was very pleasant to deal with. I would hire her company, if I needed a move-in/move-out cleaning again. The one negative is that there was a lot of confusion when trying to set up the appointment. But in the end she was able to come with enough time for the house to be clean when our renters arrived.

Taelor and Steve were simply wonderful. They arrived on time, were very patient and professional when I walked them through the house and did a truly fabulous job doing a deep clean. Our house has never been this clean! My jaw actually dropped when I walked in the door after they finished. I can’t get over how much different the place feels and my husband is also completely satisfied. I’m looking forward to them coming periodically to maintain the amazing cleaning job they did. They even dusted the ceiling fans and all the baseboards! I highly, highly recommend them.

Work Quality, Professionalism, Responsiveness and Value definitely describe Amber's performance during our first house cleaning. She was thorough; we especially liked her attention to the small details that competitors usually overlook. Looking forward to hiring again!

Let me begin by saying that it's very upsetting for me to give negative reviews. I believe everyone deserves grace, but I gave Deann (the owner) more than one opportunity and I just wasn't treated fairly. I paid $200 for a deep clean of our small 3 BR/2 BA house. I've never paid over $100 for an initial clean, so my expectations were pretty high. They did a great job with in the kitchen, especially oven and fridge. The deep clean included windows, but the kitchen windows above the sink (which get splatter from dishes) weren't dusted or cleaned. Additionally, at least 1 window in our nursery wasn't touched, nor in our master bedroom or back office/laundry space. However, the ones that were cleaned were done well. The bathrooms were done okay. Some parts were well, others not so much. There was still clear soap scum/toothpaste residue around the handles & other sink parts in my husbands bathroom. Our living room was also just okay. I could see thick white dust patches where they missed or didn't move things (e.g., planters) to dust. There was some thick residue on the floor (maybe food spill or baby spit-up) that I easily wiped off with a wet washcloth. When I got home from a walk, our two chairs and couch were still covered in dog hair. So I had to vacuum it off. Also, furniture wasn't moved around to get baseboards in all the rooms (which was part of the deep clean quote), or when mopping. The couch still had lots of dirt underneath. When I asked her about these things, she gave a blanket apology for me feeling disappointed, and said she told me that she dusted and vacuumed the couch but there was so much hair that she had to do it again. I vacuum the couch every other day and get every hair off (we have a dog that sheds bad). She made excuses for the things I brought up that should have been included in what I paid for the clean, but never offered to come back and clean the windows they had missed or anything else I mentioned to her. I personally chose this company for their reviews and for being a Christian based company (as a Christian myself). I wasn't mean or rude to her when bringing these things up, but she completely disregarded neglect on their end. If I were in her position, the right thing to do would have been to come back and finish cleaning the parts that got missed. Not to give me excuses and an insincere apology. I'm very upset about the unprofessional behavior. I really didn't want to give a bad review, but after her actions I felt like people should know what they are paying for. I paid $200 for a deep clean, didn't get what I paid for and they never offered to make it right. That's the worst part. It's not fair to treat customers like they are wrong. I worked in restaurants for 11 years, so I know customers can be difficult and over the top. I was fair and gave grace ever step of the way, but didn't get that in return. Please be cautious and don't let this company take your money for granted.
