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.

Lori did a fabulous job cleaning my entire house. She was very thorough. Knowing that our house doesn't show up on gps, she came the night before to make sure she wouldn't be late. Very impressed with her. Looking forward to having her clean my house.

I hired Ana to clean my house on biweekly basis. She is extremely professional. She is very thorough and made sure that everything was super clean before she left my house. I'm very happy with her and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a good cleaning lady.

I had my first clean with Alex's Cleaning today and they did an amazing job! I've never seen my house so clean. The attention to detail was fantastic and very appreciated. I've been on the fence about paying for house cleaning services because I feel like I should be able to do it myself, but after this first clean I am definitely planning on recurring cleanings. I thought I was a great cleaner but they did a better clean in significantly less time than I could have. I'm excited to enjoy my evening doing something fun now instead of cleaning :)

Very happy with the end result. I used Monica to do a move out cleaning a week ago. Started looking the day before and she was nice enough to fit me into her schedule. The house was so clean that the landlord was able to have new people move in it a few days later. Would highly recommend having her clean and will use her again. In fact we had her come clean our new house this week. Very nice and professional.

I really appreciate the work that Devin (sent by Terrell) did. During the hiring process, Terrell was responsive and friendly and put up with my sense of humor! Devin was professional and very friendly, as well, and did a fantastic job cleaning our house. We got it all cleaned up just in time for hosting guests that weekend.

Alex's Cleaning employees arrived and did a less than acceptable job cleaning. When my husband and I arrived home from work, the 6 diningroom chairs had a substantial amount of dust on them; on the seats and rungs of the chairs. Everyone they had mopped, there was a dust line in quite a few places in the house on our hardwood floors. For every piece they moved to dust, I had to relocate back in their original positions. The bottom section of our stainless steel refrigerator had not been cleaned at all, nor had the top of the stove underneath the gas burner covers. Underneath the Jennair vent cover was still dirty and instead the vent it still had crumbs. Osanka did send someone the next day to re-clean, whom my husband attempted to communicate with, but the two 75 year olds could not speak English. Osanka did refund our money, but I would have much rather had an effective house clean twice a month to clean our home.

When I asked for cleaning service, I was clear that I needed to include interior window washing and a refrigerator cleaned. I didn't notice that this was excluded by this individual. Refrigerator looks great. No windows. A swifter mop was used to clean the floors. A swifter when washing a floor is okay for quick clean up, but when getting a house ready for sale after construction/repair it smears the dirt around. I had already cleaned 1 bathroom out of 2.5, she cleaned 2 (including the one that was already clean) and not the 1/2 that needed it. So, after paying to have it done, I get to go and clean it myself. I ran a housekeeping service for over 10 years. I know how it should have been done.

I was so impressed with their professional approach to scheduling and booking. The price quoted was very fair for all the work they did. My house feels so fresh and clean. Excellent work. Every detail was impeccably done. There were two of the hardest workers I have had in my home. Previously I have tried other cleaning services, and in general it's been "meh" - hit or miss. I took a chance and went all in. It's a luxury for me to justify having housekeeping done. I gladly would go without a manicure/pedicure and other luxury to have them clean my home. Simply the BEST!!

Owner was really nice to speak to. Worker got to the house late which wasn't an issue, but she got there and asked what we wanted cleaned. Figured owner and cleaner would have communicated since I told the owner what I wanted done and they should already have their own list of things to do for what is being paid for. She did a good job with most of the stuff she cleaned, but I specifically asked for scuffs and hand marks (if any) off the walls and she said she tried to, but couldn't take them off. I was able to take them off with a magic eraser. I asked if she can move the oven to clean on the side and she said she is not allowed to which was weird to me since that's a main thing people asked to get cleaned when moving out. Maybe a guy for "move out cleaning" might be more handy? I thought vacuuming my carpets were extra, but it wasn't yet I ended up vacuuming most of it myself. That's why I think a list of what can be cleaned for that price from the owner's side would be great so customers won't be confused or feel like it wasn't worth what they paid for. Taking off dirt off the top ledge of the bath tub and window ledge would have been great. Maybe I'm just more detailed with cleaning. All in all, decent price compared to others and I'm just happy I had help with cleaning.

Dina and her crew did an amazing job with both houses that need to be cleaned for a move in and move out. We had to reschedule a few times due to a delay in closing but she was more than willing to accommodate that. She was very understanding and was on time at both appointments. The price was reasonable and they did a very thorough job and I couldnt be happier. I would definitely recommend their services! It is worth every penny.

He didn't actually clean the premises for which he was hired. That is to say, he felt that they were too "cluttered", and requested that I "declutter it" and give him a call back. He kept saying things like "I DON'T want this" and "I don't want that", blah, blah, blah! But it was all good. I could have done without the "blessing" that he gave me before he left, though! He WAS nice enough to clean two of my custom blinds, for which I was grateful. AND give me the remainder of the cleaner that he had used on them to boot! It could have been worse: He could have taken my three hundred-something dollars and half-assed the job, right? I appreciated his honesty and was truly embarrassed by the state of the premises for which I had hired him. THAT wasn't my fault, though! It was totally the fault of my younger sister and her son, whom I've been kind enough to house for the last, oh, 8 months?
