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 Herndon house cleaners

We were extremely happy with the house cleaning service performed by Emerita and her staff. We were looking for someone new to clean our house, and Emerita cleaned our house better than anyone prior to this. I would highly recommend her. We hired her to clean our house biweekly.

If I could give 10 stars, I would!! I couldn't be more pleased with how clean and wonderful smelling my house is. The lovely ladies that cleaned for us did an amazing job. I will definitely be using JVA House Cleaning on a regular basis.

David was very responsive to my request for a quick turnaround on a cleaning. I did a move out clean and the ladies spent the necessary time to get the house spotless. I had tenants who were not good with cleaning (I doubt they cleaned at all). The stove was full of grease and they turned it into a bright and new stove again. David’s wife really took her time to make sure my house was perfect. Thanks for all of your help to get my house super clean!

Maribel cleaned my house yesterday and I am thrilled! I've already asked that I be put on her two week schedule. I've had a big cleaning company for the last few years (no names mentioned) that I was not happy with. Maribel was exactly what I was looking for. Even this morning as I was getting ready for work I was noticing things! Highly Rated!!

Carina has seen cleaning for me for about 6 months. She cleans my house and my elderly mother-in-law’s apartment. She has always done an excellent job and I am very, very picky so that is saying a lot. I have never been dissatisfied with her work. She is very flexible and accommodating. I would highly recommend giving Carina a try. You will not be disappointed.

Z spent about 10 man(woman) Hours. The kitchen cabinets and all the hard wood floors were wiped down and treated-no finger prints. The whole house(3200 livable sq ft) were thoroughly cleaned. Can't say enough. Cost $220 or $22 an hour not including transportation.

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. The best house cleaning experience I have had to date. Maribel and her team were more than thorough and wonderful to take extra care where others would have just skipped the little things. I will be calling upon you again soon!!!!

Wow!!! Did we get more than any other service we ever tried. Love the small family business aspect. These folks really cleaned our house, under and behind furniture, special treatment for very shaggy area rug. We were mostly shopping for a service because the problems always left us wanting more. These folks are so hired. Give them a try.

I hired the strong hands team due to their responsiveness and accurate quote. We didn't go with the cheapest option because we wanted to pay a fair rate for the work. They helped get our four story townhouse in amazing shape to be listed for sale. The attention to every detail was very impressive and we are still noticing small details that were cleaned and improved without us asking. They worked very hard until the job was done and never rushed through it. I will definitely be hiring them again once we move into our new house!

Alde Gomez went above and beyond. I needed someone ASAP for a move out clean. The first company was a no show. I call Alde and she responded immediately!!! Every time I texted her she responded within seconds. They came earlier then expected and their work was Phenomenal. I was so pleased. They have no idea how much stress they took off of me. I would rate them a TEN STAR if I could. Very professional and accommodating. I plan on using them at my new house. I have already referred them to my family and coworkers. Thank you Alde.

I would NOT recommend ever getting any services from Think Maids, EVER. We had a terrible experience with them. While I thought booking was a breeze, after completing project details on Thumbtack and receiving a final quote to schedule work, they added an additional step for finalizing booking. This involved going to their website and picking all the options for cleaning again, this also differed from the choices on Thumbtack hence changing the originally quoted price. There were errors in picking options before completing the booking too, this confused the two members who arrived 3 hours LATE, after completing another job. Meanwhile communications with Sara(owner) were unfruitful in resolving the timing of the job where she stated that the job location was TOO FAR. Also regarding the differences in project details, she blamed us directly for choosing options incorrectly. The team of two were clearly overwhelmed with the job site and were not professional enough to handle the project. Ultimately the house was left unclean and Sara(owner) blamed us for confusing the cleaners regarding sweeping wooden floors vs vacuuming, they should have been professional enough to recommend. The pictures attached tell the rest of the story. Sara only acknowledged two items, one regarding leaving a puddle of water on our wooden steps, second one regarding not emptying out ANY TRASHBINS at all, she didn’t do or offer to do anything about it either. The crew didn’t bother EVEN LIFTING THE DOORMATS for cleaning under them. She cheated us with the quote, blamed us for their duplication of process, blamed us for the incompetence of the cleaners, all that without being apologetic. I will add my review to BBB as well so they NEVER operate in this area ever. I strongly recommend Thumbtack to remove this business from their roster.
