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. 

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.

How do I choose the best house cleaning service?

When searching for the best house cleaning service near you, consider the depth of your cleaning needs, your budget and the size and condition of your home. Read reviews from verified customers of any cleaning service that you’re looking to hire. Also, check out the reviewers’ photos and do background checks on reviewers to ensure they’re not employed by established cleaning firms or maid agencies.

Mike was a wonderful gift! I needed a deep clean of a family member’s house, for a family member with “issues” making it difficult for them to keep a clean house. Mike was responsive, kind, and resourceful to do the job we really needed. I am very grateful.

Over the years we have hired a number of women to help with house cleaning, but Dave out-cleaned them all! He cleaned, polished, dusted, and vacuumed so much more than anyone else—-in the same amount of time. There is definitely a skill and art to Dave’s approach. My husband noticed immediately when he got home, and said the same thing, Wow!

S&H did an excellent job cleaning our house! They were very thorough yet finished in good time. I told them what I wanted, and they completely met my expectations and more. I also love that they're personable and enthusiastic. I highly recommend them for cleaning services.

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.

Dave did an amazing job cleaning my house to get it ready for the people I had just sold it to. He was extremely professional and flexible enough to work with me on pricing. He also went far above and beyond my expectations on the clean, covering areas I wouldn’t have thought of but that made a huge difference. I would recommend him to anyone!!

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.

Nadya was absolutely wonderful! She was so easy and pleasant to work with - responsive, professional and kind. And when I got home I could not believe what an excellent job she did. It was honestly the best house cleaning I’ve ever had. Her pricing is really reasonable and the job she does feels like it would cost a fortune. I loved everything about my experience and will be setting up a regular cleaning schedule for sure!
