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.

Reviews for Federal Way house cleaners

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.

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.

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!

She offered to have her sister clean for me because she didn't have time in the morning as I had requested. Her sister shows up and sees papers, boxes, popcorn all over the floors and says " oh it'll be alot more than $170 just to clean." I asked why she thinks she deserves more, she points to the mess, the boxes in the living room and hallways (I was in the process of moving things to storage) and walks to my window, swipes a finger on the window blind and says, "oh this is going to take me a long time". The dust was not even 2 weeks worth of dust, it was light dust and she says it would take the two of them (her and another lady) 6 hours to clean bc they really really deep clean. This isn't the first cleaner that has said this and still left me underwhelmed with their cleaning skills. I think most of these cleaners feel they should be paid $30 plus per hour for cleaning and that they expect to charge more if the house looks untidy. Hello, this is the reason you have an income, not the reason you should charge more. And you shouldn't be expecting to make more than a skilled trade who barely makes $30 an hour. These cleaning prices in general are ridiculous compared to what companies pay their workers to do the same so why should we pay you double? I would never do that. Ever. I clean my own house when I have time and I know that work is not strenuous enough $200 for 4-5 hours. And if you expect to take longer than that then you're definitely not efficient at it and shouldn't charge the customer for your slack. Get real. For this company though, sending someone (her sister) over that didn't honor their own quote is so unprofessional.

Gigi and her helper came to do a cleaning of my new condo before I moved in since the previous owner didn't do it. I was really pleased with how quickly she responded and her willingness to work within my schedule, which in this case meant doing the job after hours. Quality of work was just average, but to be fair, that could've been because half of the lightbulbs in the house were out so they were essentially working in the dark!
