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.

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.

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?

What is included in a deep house cleaning vs. a basic house cleaning?

A basic house cleaning typically includes tasks like carpet cleaning, wiping countertops, taking out the trash, doing the laundry and washing dishes. A deep house cleaning is a much more involved process, where all aspects of the home are given full attention for a cleanout. In a deep house cleaning, the cleaners will wet-wipe everything from door frames to light switch plates, making sure to also clean walls, windows, air vents, ceiling fans, furniture and more.

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.

I hired House's Cleaning Service to do a cleaning of my parent's three bedroom ranch. Rona and her staff did a great job. Interior windows, bathrooms, vacuum cleaning, etc. My parents were very happy. We'll definitely continue doing business with her!

Melissa is amazing! I hired her to deep clean a house I just bought. She had the house spotless and cut no corners. I have prior experience in cleaning services and upon my expectation of her job, she hit every spot high and low. She is super friendly, transparent and her flexibility should suit all perspective customers. I intend to hire her as my regular home cleaner when I move in at the end of the month. I’d be happy to be reference for her. Thanks for the great job Melissa.

Rosa was amazing to work with! She was quick to respond, easy to communicate and make a plan with. She customized her services to exactly what we needed (we were moving in to a house and needed most of it deep cleaned). Her cleaning was thorough and excellent. She is more than worth her rate! She was a gem to work with, and we're so thankful to have found her. We will most certainly be using her again!

Faith was my angel 😇. I'm a single mom working full time and I was drowning is housework! I mean it was bad! I love a clean house but I just let my busy schedule get the best of me. I was tired and overwhelmed and about to cry when Faith responded the night before and committed last minute to cleaning my home. I have small children and they constantly make messes. When I walked in the door after a long day of work it was heaven! She even used draino to unclog one of my slow draining tubs. It was like a new house again❤️🙏🏽 sparkling and smelling amazing! Thank you Faith.

On fault of my own I had to reschedule several times due to contractors. I wanted a move in cleaning and we finally had a time. When that time came last minute she then had to cancel and said she would be there at 8am on Saturday. So on Saturday I woke up early to get some things moved around and she didn’t shows until after 9am. I asked to clean the bathrooms, kitchen, and the back screened in porch. She went upstairs to clean upstairs and said since painters left buckets up there she couldn’t clean around them. So she cleaned the kitchen and one half bath and vacuumed one level of hard wood floors. I was in my basement working and she said she was done in 99minutes and said $165 so I laid her. I later went upstairs and noticed she only vacuumed the screened in porch and she said that’s all she thought I wanted. So I laid $265 for a kitchen, half bath and to vacuum one level?!?!?! That is unacceptable and outrageous for 90minutes and continued to argue on the phone about the job. I will not recommend her or give her more stars. What she did clean was cleaned very well but I’ve had house keepers for years and never would I have gotten charged this.
