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.

They are truly dedicated to what they do. The house looked immaculate after they were done, and they were professional from start to finish. Also, a great value for a move out cleaning, if you are leaving a rental.

Shawn did a wonderful job cleaning my dirty house. He responded to my request in a very timely manner. He arrived early and went right to work with the help of his mother. They did an outstanding job and I look forward to continuing with Shawn and Touch 2 Clean on a regular basis.

I hired Harrison to do a move in cleaning. There was no furniture or anything to be moved, just doing a cleaning of surfaces, bathrooms and kitchen. When the cleaners arrived, one immediately started walking through the house while I spoke with the owner. After she and I walked the house, she told me a new price which was much higher than the initial price that was given. Overall, a decent cleaning was done for move in. After they left, I discovered that bleach had been sprayed all over the inside of the refrigerator and left. None of the blinds had been dusted at all. And I needed to haggle the price which wasn’t professional. My recommendation: make sure you do a walk through BEFORE hiring the team so you get an accurate estimate and clear understanding of the services they are doing. Compare companies. I was told that because there was no furniture or stuff in the kitchen, that there was MORE work to do which sounds incredible 😐. I would probably use a different team for my weekly cleaning.

These ladies were amazing— quick response, affordable and excellent service. Cleaning my house for a move out was no small task and these ladies got it done and did the job well! Even managed disposing of items left over that were hidden in a missed cabinet. So grateful. Will definitely call on again. Highly recommend.

Thank you, Simply Clean for coming to my rescue and taking care of my house! The owner responded within hours of my initial request and bent over backwards to squeeze me into the schedule over the weekend. I came home to sparkling floors, spotless counters and fresh bathrooms. I would hire this team again!

We hired FCM Clean to clean both our new house and the apartment we we’re vacating. They did a fantastic job on both. They worked with us to accommodate our schedule and had a very convenient online booking process. Jerry was very responsive to any requests or messages throughout the process. They were very kind, polite, and professional. Jerry walked us through everything they had done before they left. They paid special attention to disinfect frequently touched surfaces. Very pleased with the services provided.

Nicole accomplished a move out cleaning of a huge 4 bedroom/ 4 bathroom house for us today. It was a BIG job. She deliverall the things you look for in a professional. She was very easy to schedule with, she quickly responded, she moved times to accommodate our time constraints AND did an AWESOME job. On top of that she is the sweetest, most polite and pleasant young lady. We were completely satisfied, Phenomenal is exactly the correct word to describe this company.
