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 Suffolk house cleaners
Scott W.
She arrived 10 minutes early in the snow. She knocked her shoes off before entering the house. It took her 4 hours to clean our rental property and there was nothing left that I needed to clean. She cleaned the fridge and it looked new again! Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to have their house cleaned by a very professional and thorough cleaner!

The crew from Touch 2 Clean was extremely thorough and did it all. They came in and cleaned my entire house and cleaned the carpets for a very reasonable cost. They were always on time or early. I was extremely impressed. Also, they offer a military discount. On top of being professional, they were very friendly and easy to work with. I would highly recommend them.

Harrison’s was very professional. They did an excellent job of communicating with us both by email and text, better than any home service business I’ve ever dealt with. They were right on time (even a few minutes early). This was a “move out” cleaning, and although there was still some furniture in their way in the house, their cleaning time estimate was met. They charged us more than the estimate amount, but that was reasonable given the house was not completely empty by any means (and I had forgotten to forewarn them about that ahead of time). Cleaning was very thorough and well done. A top-notch business.

Great business to work with. I called them in to help after having a family emergency, they helped clean my home and are coming back to help with maintaining it. They say they cleaned my house was very chaotic, people everywhere, they were very polite and worked around us. If your looking for that extra touch in cleaning you will find it here. Great value for the price.

With all the hustle and chaos that revolves around moving I realized that I didn't have the time to clean the old house, move, and unpack and set the new house up. I reached out to Ross Cleaning and bam within minutes they were able to adjust their work schedule to meet my needs and not rake me over the coals because of my short window. On the day of the cleaning I received a text letting me they were on their way and when they got to my old residence. They arrived early which is always a plus in my book!!!! Darryl was polite and friendly! I received a text a couple of hours later letting me know they were done. What a fantastic job they did! If I ever need another cleaning whether move out or just cause I know who I'm calling on!!!

Ytevia did an amazing job with my move out clean. I was not in town at the time of the cleaning and she still made it an easy process. I would definitely use her services again. You will not be disappointed if you chose Ytevia for your house cleaning needs. I can honestly say I am pleased and more than satisfied. Oh I almost forgot to mention that I received my deposit back. Thank you so much for you excellent service!

Yteria did a superb job. She was very thorough in conducting her assessment so we knew exactly what would be achieved. She was punctual, friendly, and completlely responsive to our needs. We had some tile work done in our upstairs bathroom prior to our cleaning date and there was dust EVERYWHERE! By the time Yteria left, there was not a speck of dust in sight. The entire house was gleaming with a wonderful fresh smell. Do yourself a favor and try OCD cleaning!

I first made contact with Harrison’s Cleaning Solutions on May 12. At that time, I informed them that we needed a move out clean done before the 27th beings that the buyers of our home were doing a final walk through on that date. We agreed on the 26th with an eta of 12-2. They sent me a detailed list of everything that would be cleaned and the estimated price of 175. On the 25th, they sent me a message to confirm the scheduled appt for the next day. On the 26th we got to the house around 1145 and waited for them to show up. Finally at 130 they showed up, two people, walked around and the female informed me that she would need to charge by the hour at a rate of $80 per hour, with a minimum of 6 hrs, blinds would be $15 a piece and that was extra. The estimate went from $175 to $480, without the blinds being done. Furthermore, she informed us that she didn’t know if she could do it today, even though we scheduled and agreed upon a move out clean, which is around 6 hours for any company. A few minutes later, we see the man that was with her walk to the car with her following. She saw that we were watching, trying to figure out what was going on, and she said yea, I’m not going to be able to do it. I find this completely absurd and horrible business practice.
