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.

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. 

What are the different types of house cleaning services I can get?

There are several services offered by professional house cleaning companies, each suited for a different purpose. These services include:

  • Standard cleaning, which is a basic cleaning typically done on a weekly or monthly basis;
  • Deep cleaning, which is a detailed cleaning with more intensive work than a standard clean;
  • Move-in and move-out cleaning, which is a detailed service preparing a home for residents moving in or out;
  • Green house cleaning, which is a service that uses eco-friendly cleaning supplies and products. 

Aside from the type of cleaning services available, homeowners may also choose daily, weekly, monthly or one-time services.

How much should you tip maids or cleaning services?

Tipping between 15 and 20 percent is considered an appropriate tip for maids and house cleaners — just as it would with a barber, food delivery driver or taxi operator. During the holidays, you might want to consider tipping a bit more. 

It’s important to note that some housekeeping and maid services might include a tip within the service fee, which should be explained to you in the service contract. Talk to house cleaners in your area to find out what's included in their fees.

Ruth just finished cleaning my house and it looks incredible!!! She did an excellent job and cleaned every last detail. My house not only looks fantastic it smells fresh and clean too. She was on time, easy to communicate with and worked hard the whole time she was here. I’d definitely use Pro Cleaners again and recommend them to family and friends.

After Vagma took the initiative to actually meet with me at the house for a quote (unlike the other companies I contacted), I hired Copacabana team to clean our house twice a month. Yesterday was the first cleaning, and the level of detail is amazing-- from changing sheets to cleaning the inside of the refrigerator. I am very happy with the job they did and how thorough the cleaning was, and am very excited to have similar service over the coming months.

I’m so happy with the result. I hired Diamond Shine House to clean my home while I was traveling and I needed to get back home to a clean house. They didn’t disappoint. They did a wonderful job. My microwave and oven look brand new, my floors and everything look good. Thank you!

Very good cleaning. They cleaned all areas very well , small areas which other cleaners dont bother much to even see they cleaned it without my request and they were open to feedback and acted on it. Also they were very careful of handling equipments around the house so as to not damage anything.

JoJo exceeded all of my expectations. She was cleaning my house to ready it for sale. Not only did she clean beautifully,she repaired drywall and painted several rooms. She can do anything and do it well. Her price is very reasonable as well.

I asked for a deep cleaning. Small house, no pets, no laundry or beds to make. I was worried when Andressas showed up by herself and I mentioned that fact to her. Kitchen sink not cleaned, streaks from cloth in microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher. Stove cleaned poorly. So many things not dusted and or cleaned properly and I do not want to list them all. If you can't do the job with the correct products or have enough help you should not be working as a cleaning service. I did not check things before Andressa left, which is on me. I payed and then took my time to inspect the job. But I will not hire her service again.

Laid up for quite some time with a bad surgery, the house was -- let's face it -- a major pigsty despite my husband trying to do his best. After Diamond Cleaning, every single corner, counter and floor was spotless! Excellent work, fast, very inexpensive.

So far Copacabana has cleaned our home three times and it has been fantastic each time. Vagma is very professional and responsive and came to our home to assess our house and provide an estimate for the work. The first clean is a deep clean, and they clean everything. Everything. Even the inside of drawers. The house looked awesome when they were done and the ladies who came were very very nice. It was easy to hire them for regular monthly cleanings after seeing the job they did initially. Today they cleaned for the third time and once again, they did a fantastic job. Caroline and Juana did such a great job and I think they've done an even better job than the other teams (although they have all been great), and I say this because they even washed some of our dishes!! I thought that wasn't included normally but it was done! We had a very dirty pot that I thought I was going to throw away but whoever cleaned it made it look brand new again ha! I also love how they rearrange and organize things and tidy up in that way too. The first visit, we couldn't find a few things at first but that's ok. :) I will continue to hire them! Thank you!

After recently being a cancer survivor and then less than two weeks ago suffering a significant heart attack, I simply have no energy to clean my house. My wife has had an artificial hip put in and has a very bad back. So with both of us laid up, enter Sakura. They were so very thorough, professional and personable. They're friendliness and compassion for us was so warming, and my house is so beautiful again. It hasn't been this clean since I started my journey to be cancer free in 2019. You are amazing. Keep up the good work. You will be back soon. M&M
