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.

This was my first experience with a house cleaning company. Moe and Ivy were super, did an excellent job and made sure I was happy throughout the process. I choose the deep clean and carpet clean package. I could not be happier with the results and the excellent quality of their work. My over 20 year old carpet looks like new carpet and the whole house is sparkling clean! Hope to have them back monthly to maintain our home.

We have a New Year coming and several people will be needing to find just the perfect person representing the perfect company regarding having their house cleaned. I found myself in a situation where I knew I had to get my house cleaned, but had no idea whatsoever who I should get to do the job. I actually needed the house done the same day I started looking for a house cleaning company. Just like any other person, I was in a panic and did not expect any company to be able to come to my house the same day I called. It would have to be a miracle! Mrs. Ross of Ross Commercial Cleaning LLC.; came to the rescue, stopped by to look at my house and what needed to be done, and agreed to come back in a short while and take the job! AMAZING! But that's not the best part.....After she finished, the house was left in a spotless condition and exactly what I had been hoping for. She even through in a few extras that I hadn't expected! I can honestly recommend Mrs. Ross as an excellent (and probably the best in the area) cleaner. She took the time to do the job right. You definitely will appreciate what she can do with YOUR house. She IS THE VERY BEST AT WHAT SHE DOES!!!!!! Don't be afraid to give her a try. You won't be sorry. GUARANTEED.

We had a deep cleaning done. Michelle and her partner (don't remember his name) were AMAZING. My house was so spotless. They were very prompt and got here within the first 30 minutes of the window they game me. They worked hard and cleaned the house in a much faster time than I expected. They cleaned every nook and cranny. Seriously, they even dusted the vents in at the top of the 14-ft ceilings, all the baseboards and the walls. I could not have asked for a better clean. I will definitely use them again!

Mrs. Ross was on time, we walked the house to see what all need to be clean then she and her son started cleaning. They were professional, fast, and precise. I will differently call them back and will recommend them to friends.

I just hired A' La Carte Clean to clean my house every 2 weeks. I came home to an extremely clean home that smelled clean too! They moved things to vacuum, put clean sheets on our bed and made our kitchen and bathrooms sparkle! Added bonus, she didn't have a problem hanging out with our Great Dane. Very professional and highly recommend!

Mrs Ross and her team did an outstanding job. They exhibited professionalism and dedication to completing the job. Especially noteworthy was cleaning out of the window sills which had not not been cleaned in a while. I appreciated the thoroughness and quality of their cleaning. Thank you for helping me meet my goal of getting the house ready for sale.
