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. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

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!

These guys were AMAZING! And went above and beyond when cleaning my house after moving out! They even went so far as to clean light fixtures! I would 100% recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a fixer upper and hired Belkyscleaning to deep clean before we moved in. The house was a smoker house and neglected for years with caked on grime, totally gross. I was so impressed with how thoroughly clean her team made it and it ended up smelling fresh for a change! Can't thank her enough, as I'm much more comfortable and can breathe again!

When I walked into my house after they cleaned everything looked spotless! They really payed attention to detail and made my house smell amazing which is really nice because I know they put in the extra work to get rid of all the pet dander in my house from my four animals. Would hire again!

This company did not meet my expectations at all. They do an okay job for an average, surface cleaning - which i could have done myself. I would definitely not recommend them for a deep cleaning as they simply did not seem prepared at all for the job. They left a handful of dishes unwashed in my sink or thrown in the dishwasher, you would think house cleaners can manage to wash a few dishes. A few mirrors around the house were not cleaned, and the floors which should have been mopped looked like they just wiped it down with wet towels. Not clean at all. I explained everything I was unhappy with after the first cleaning, expecting it to be remedied the second time around. Instead of trying to make things better and work with the situation, they complained about the work. When I hire cleaners I expect cleaners that actually enjoy their job and want to achieve a good job. This was not the case at all. I decided to be patient and wait for the 3rd cleaning before making a final decision, I understand sometimes it takes a few visits and some communication to have a better cleaning experience. Instead they messaged me hours before they should have arrived saying they can no longer clean my house. I had already arranged for my 4 kids to be with their baby sitter while the cleaners come and I spent the whole day prior prepping my house for them. I am 9 months pregnant and on bed rest. This company was incredibly unprofessional and lazy. Unless you need a light cleaning, i would look elsewhere for your needs.

The quality of move-out cleaning service was excellent. Carina and her staff are dependable. A morning appointment on a holiday was very important to me and they fulfilled that. Took care of all the little things, didn't miss anything! The place is now spotless. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in having house cleaned before move-in/out.

The team Liz sent arrived on time and helped us deep clean our house which was covered in dust from recent ceiling work that was overwhelming to clean on my own. They were so incredibly nice and even helped me put certain furniture pieces and decor back into place that had to be placed in the corner for the ceiling work. Will be hiring again!

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!!

We used Jose's team for the first time yesterday and WOW, we are impressed. Jose was great to work with and our house is squeaky clean. They did such an amazing job we will be using his team on a regular basis. You can't go wrong with Jose!

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.

I am sorry, but SKLTBF LLC Cleaning Service did not live up to the 5 star rating that they have on thumbtack. My shower doors still had soap scum on the bottom half, so they did the top half, but decided not to do the bottom half. My shower still had mildew around, doesn't look like anything was scrubbed. My sink in the kitchen was not cleaned as there was gunk all over the sink. The cabinets were not wiped down at all even though I paid for a deep cleaning. I paid extra for a fridge cleaning and it was done at a surface level, but nothing more. When I pay for a deep cleaning I expect that there wouldn't be any dust, gunk, mildew, soap scum, etc. all over surfaces of my house.

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!
