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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

Cleanscapes deep cleaned my house after a construction project. They did a fantastic job of thoroughly cleaning the main areas of the house and I'm finally excited to be hanging out in these rooms again. The guys were professional, personable, and attentive! I will definitely use them again.

Before I start, these ladies were extremely nice and professional when they arrived, however, I have some issues with the services. When booking, I asked them to do an all over deep clean on the house. I specially asked for the windows, baseboards, and the outside of cabinets to be cleaned. I even made sure that they were going to clean the windows once they arrive. I booked an oven cleaning as well, and when they arrived I just told them it needed a quick wipe down. It looks like they didn’t even touch the oven, the baseboards, the cabinets, or all of the windows. The only window I saw them clean was the sliding door leading to our back patio, the rest looked like they haven’t been touched. All they did was wipe down that one window, wipe down the bathrooms, vacuum, and mop the floors. The house didn’t even smell clean at all once they were done, as it typically does when I clean the house.

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.

I hired CleanScapes to come post sanding and finishing of wood floors throughout my house. I gave them detailed instructions regarding what needed to be done. There are only a a few pieces of furniture in the house and the floors did not need to be cleaned because they were just refinished. It needed a heavy dusting and soap and water cleaning from ceiling to floor and wall-to-wall so I scheduled a deep clean. I specifically asked them to wipe down the baseboards and dirt that had accumulated around them. Two young men showed up at my front door with swiffers and they went through the house swiffering. We have security cameras inside and out and we could see they just moved dust around. They were only at the house for 45 minutes. It took me 8 hours to clean the bathrooms and and kitchen after the floors were done. All they had to do were the open areas. They did lower the initial price from 180 to 80. I'd rather they'd just done the job I hired them to do. I could have bought a lot of Swiffers for that 80.

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.

Rescheduled numerous times. Poor communication. I requested a deep clean of my house. She made numerous excuses why she could not come. I think that she did not want to render these services as requested.

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!

Do NOT hire this service. I was told I had to pay extra after the service was performed even though that was never discussed. I had to ask the cleaning person to wear a mask as he almost walked into my house without one and then I was told the other cleaner was out sick. Also the level of cleaning was not up to any standards that I have ever seen. The kitchen appliances were not cleaned and all the dust was left on fans; I was told that the cleaner could not figure out how to turn them off (there are very easily found switches on the walls In all the rooms). Dawn was argumentative with me about the level of service provided as well as the price. I would not recommend using this service.
