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.

Was on time and cleaned the entire house for my move out.

I hired Miracle Workers Cleaning Services for Move out cleaning. Tanya was great at initial conversation, and I was able to set up an appointment for Saturday. I have hired cleaning service through Thumbtack before, and there has always been 2 or more people would come to clean the house with all of the equipment. Tanya only sent one lady to clean the house with no proper tools. She did not have step stool to clean upper part of the cabinets, did not have proper tools to clean the dirt from edges of the windows. It took about 5 hours to clean 1100 sq ft house, and the house still was not cleaned properly. There was still dirt on the floor. Tanya did take off $50 from my bill, but I would rather have a cleaned house then $50 as this is my rental property. I would not hire them again.

They came, they saw, they cleaned. They took my outstandingly dirty house and gave it back to be spotlessly clean. And I mean clean. I am as happy as a little pig, would recommend them and have signed on to have them come monthly.

Really happy that I found this company! Taymara and her husband are awesome! Just had remodeling done and the entire house was covered in dust. They came in and cleaned every room perfectly. You can tell that they care about their job. My house looks and smells so nice. I just hired them to clean every two weeks. I highly recommend them to anyone that wants a spotless clean home!

If you are looking for house cleaning service then stop here and call Bre. My home was broken into and it's totally messed up with all of the tiny glass and dust on the floor and carpet. It was 12/31 and no one was really willing to help me with that since most of them are on vacation or are with family. Only Bre answered my call quickly and she came to my house after only 40 minutes. She not only help me to clean all the house, she also asked to help me to temporarily cover the break door to prevent wind get into my house. It was very generous of her, she cleaned the house as a pro and didn't use any chemical for the cleaning. My husband and I feel so thankful as we received help from Bre on that day especially while our mind feel very depressed and mess up due to the break-in.

Hired the crew for a deep clean of my best friend’s place as a gift. She and her husband said the house hasn’t been this clean since before they moved in! Communication was prompt, clear, and professional and they did a great job!

Nadia was amazing. She did the job of two people deep cleaning our house and she was fantastic. She was punctual, detailed, and professional. We can’t wait to use Sakura’s cleaning again and will definitely recommend to our friends and family.

The two cleaners that cleaned the house was amazing. They were very thorough in what they did. I was able to add walls to the cleaning that same day which really helped. They did forget to mop the kitchen and pantry floors but the owners were in contact with me to the end and they came back 2 days later to do it. I would hire again in a heart beat!

I was trying to hire Copacabana Cleaning to have my house done on Monday August 9th but for some reason the system was not able to schedule it, only for the 16th. That would be to late because I wanted it cleaned before my wife got back from traveling. I called Vagma and thankfully she rescheduled the cleaning for the 9th. She advised me to book a deep clean and her team did an awesome job, my wife was really happy !!! Thank you Copacabana Cleaning.

We contacted Carolina for house cleaning services in preparation for our move out of state. It took the two ladies that came longer than I expected and they ended up not getting to every room, but they were highly qualified and did a fabulous, THOROUGH "deep clean" of those rooms they tackled. They were also very polite and considerate of our property. It was just too much house for one day's work! When you call to book and speak with Carolina, I would suggest detailing everything you'd like done in advance because there was a slight language barrier that caused some confusion of what should and shouldn't be done. All in all, very competent. House looks great. I highly recommend Carolina's services!

I really enjoy having the Alex's Cleaning team clean my home. They do an exceptional job of keeping my home feel comfortable. Their prices are reasonable for the size house we have and what we ask them to do. I appreciate their reminder emails and letting me me know whether they are running early or late on cleaning day. We have a dog and they do a good job keeping the dog contained while cleaning and after they leave. We also have an alarm system and they manage that without any issues. All in all, I would recommend you give Alex's Cleaning a chance to impress you!

HIRE THEM. That's it. Just hire these ladies. I never had a group of ladies clean so well and I, a woman, have 3 male roommates, and we have 4 dogs in this house. But they made it so spotless that guests who can over the next day didn't even think we had dogs by how clean it was. 10/10 Am excited to hire them again!

Fantastic work in my home last week! Two full time jobs (plus occasional overtime), two little kids, and a couple of dogs.... some areas of the house were just.... getting pretty gross, I hate to admit. It was really starting to bother me, so my husband scheduled a one time deep clean to get things back on track. House is gleaming now... baseboards, window tracks, blinds throughout the house... and SUCH a thorough job dusting, even high up and out of the way items. Super happy. I just reached out to schedule biweeklies going forward.
