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.

I hired Jave to deep clean my house and they did an excellent job. Elena was very helpful with quick communication about availability and pricing. Her team arrived promptly at the arranged time. The house is spotless and the cleaning team was efficient and respectful! I plan to hire them on a regular basis.

I was very happy with the service and quality of the cleaning. I had been through several cleaners who didn't show up or didn't clean the whole house. I'm glad I found Net to Natural Cleaning! I would recommend using this company to anybody looking.

J&C are hard working, highly skilled cleaning professionals. I needed a short-notice house cleaning and they went out of their way to accommodate my schedule on a holiday weekend. They are incredibly thorough and meticulous in their cleaning. I've tried several other cleaners in the past- and the quality I recieved from J&C was above reproach.

Imelda and her friend did an excellent job of cleaning the house. We hired Imelda for a "move out" plan and we were very pleased. The house looked lovely at the end and they worked very hard to achieve the result they did. I would definitely recommend them. Angela, CA

Raven responded to my last-minute housecleaning request in a few minutes, and was here within two hours. She did a meticulous job cleaning various areas of my house, until it was more than satisfactorily clean enough for company. I am very grateful and will hire her again.

She is amazing! I contacted her pretty last minute as my previous cleaner cancelled and she was able to fit my into her busy schedule. She left my house spotless and I will definitely hire her again in the future.

All three of the ladies came in and worked nonstop. We had a move out cleaning done and they were very thorough. My whole house is spotless, including the refrigerator and oven! If we weren't moving out of state, I would use their service on a regular basis. Highly recommend!

Lidia and I met today to go over the cleaning requested; we will start out monthly. It was a great initial meeting; she was already detail oriented as she did a walt-thru of the house. I am very excited to have found Lidia and am confident this will be a long-term relationship.

When I say I was extremely pleased with the level of service Terrell provided, that would be an understatement. He was five minutes early and amazing to have in my home. I was so comfortable and my house was immaculate when he left. I hired him for once a month cleanings and I couldn’t be happier.

I think Emerald City Maids did an average job at cleaning my house. The level of detail was good, but not great. From the descriptions on the website, I was expecting stellar and professional service. I was very clear on Thumbtack that we were looking for a deep cleaning/move out cleaning. At the time that they bid for the job, this was not an issue. However, after we expressed our dissatisfaction with the level of the cleaning, we were told and I quote "we don't even offer deep cleaning/move out cleaning". For $387.28, I expected what I asked for in the first place, a deep cleaning, but got kind of superficial cleaning. Maybe my standards are too high, I don't know, but I passed up many cleaning companies here on thumbtack that were offering full deep cleanings for as little as $180 and thought that if I paid more, I would get better service. So just remember, they don't do the deep cleaning so if that's what you're looking for just know ahead of time and adjust your expectations accordingly. I am in the process of speaking to their management team to see why they would accept a job for a deep cleaning knowing that they don't offer this level of service. Overall, I believe they're great for general up-keep like floors/countertops/sinks and the like, but it just seemed to me like they struggled with things that needed some extra effort like the oven and corners in general. There was just so much left over debris in the corners.

I needed help getting my house cleaned to put on the market ASAP. I contacted Bright and Shiney on a Saturday afternoon and they came out early the next day, and WOW! I’m pretty sure they got stains out that had been there from before my parents bought the house in the 80s! It was a huge relief to have someone come and do such a fantastic job - even my Realator asked for their contact info so he can start referring clients to call them! If I could leave more than 5 starts, I would! Fast, friendly, reasonably priced and did an amazing job!!!

I’m so happy I picked JAVE house cleaning. Elena and her team were awesome. I selected her 3 weeks ago. She responded right away and gave me a great quote. She followed up with me a couple of times a week to ensure I didn’t forget. I was requesting her service to clean my home and get it ready for sale. I advised her it would be a chore but she was happy to take it on. My home looks remarkable and it took her a few hours longer than she quoted but she wasn’t going to change her quote. I appreciate her willingness to stick with what she stated. My refrigerator and oven look brand new! The shower looks 150% better. I can’t say enough positive things about how well they did. Elena was very professional and on time introduced herself. Took the time to hear what I really wanted focused on. Thank you Elena and your team as well. If they offered 10 stars ⭐️ i’d give them. I will certainly recommend you to others. Final important note during these unsettling times her and the team all wore masks. I really appreciated this showing she cares about our well being. Thank you again 😃👍🏼
