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.

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.

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.

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.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

How much is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

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.

Jan did a wonderful job cleaning my daughter’s house after she moved!

We had our first cleaning with Eagles and they did an excellent job. The house sparkled when they were done. The first cleaning is a "deep" cleaning that requires more time than the normal cleaning. As a result, it was pricey. Haven't had the second cleaning yet, so don't know what that cost will be. P.S. Very nice folks to deal with.

We have enjoyed working with Ondrea on a recurring basis and will continue to have her clean our home. She toured our house and listened carefully to what we were looking for before our first cleaning, and she met our expectations right away. It is so nice to come home to a clean space! The price is fair, we are very happy with Ondrea's work, and highly recommend her.

To begin with, we agreed on the price of the job to do deep cleaning of my house including the garage area. The day of the scheduled job things started quiet smooth and I just left them do their job. When I came back in the afternoon to double check on how far they finished and the quality, come to to find out was very poor cleaning and missing many details of the house for instance the edge of the ground molding always dusty overtime and the edge of switches get dusty as well. By the time it was 7pm they were ready to leave and did not even reach my garage to clean it. Well to be fair the house is 5800 sqft and only 2 working at all time not possible. However I agreed for them to come back another day and finish the job which means get the garage and the parts they missed I discussed it with them. Well at the 2nd day they refused to keep the promise and only do the garage and to them it was easy to offer discount right away and not actually get the job done. All what I asked is to get my house clean and I agreed to pay them at the beginning more than their competitors just to have faith but I guess was not the case. If your house size of 1-2 bed room they can help you probably but anything bigger than that don’t expect much. Will never use them again nor I would recommend them.

Absolutely incredible. I've hired hoise cleaners for years. Needed a team last second the day before Thanksgiving. House was a wreck when I left. New baby and pregnancy meant I hasn't deep cleaned as I like in quite awhile. Their team came in and made it beautiful in record time. I'll definitely schedule them in weekly shortly! Absolutely amazing value.

O. M. G!!! My house has never been this clean! Even when we moved in! And I’m an admitted cleanaholic. Jan did such I good job! I wanted to give her 6 stars and choose all five of the areas she excelled in but the app wouldn’t let me. So worth it. And she’s got such a great personality. I will definitely get her on a regular schedule. Thanks Jan! 💕
