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.

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.

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.

The first one to answer my request. I wasn't finished moving, and they were able to pack up the rest of my house as well as give it a thorough cleaning. The house was spotless. Highly recommended!

I found 5 Star on Thumbtack. Maria came out and met me which made me feel very comfortable. She is amazing and knows her stuff! We scheduled a whole house clean two days later. When I walked through my doors after the deep clean, I was amazed!!! My house wasn't this clean when I bought it! This crew hit every area and I'm pretty sure went back over it again. It was the best check I've ever written! Thank you 5 Star Cleaning!!!

Do you hate cleaning? Or are you like me and are really bad at it and have a time crunch? Dina’s is your spot. They showed up and cleaned my entire house in half a day and did a better job than I could have done in 2 weeks. Very responsive to my questions and was willing to work with my hectic and changing schedule. Very friendly and respectful of my house while cleaning. Highly recommended. Very flexible with payment methods and made sure to check with me before throwing anything away that was questionable if I wanted to keep. I can’t say enough good things.

I PAID DOUBLE THEIR QUOTED PRICE.$309 quote/$748 billed. They responded quickly and were able to clean with short notice. We requested a move out clean and the estimate we were given was 4-5 hours of work for $309. The house had a couch, table, some empty boxes in the pantry, along with a few baskets with random stuff left in them. Our schedule has been a little hectic with moving, and I called about an hour after their start time to make sure they didnt have any questions. They said there was stuff all over the house and alot of things needing moved. They could move stuff to one side, clean and then move to other side and clean the rest. I told Sylva over ther phone I understood if it would cost a little more it was ok. After 3 hours they asked if they could wrap up for the day and return tomorrow. The next day they started in the morning and were finished in 3 hours. The house looked good, a few cobwebs in downstairs bedroom, and a baseboard heater had dead bugs under it. Appliances cleaned really well. The price we paid was $748.94. Over double the quoted price. If there is a change in anything I recommend you get a written/electronic quote before agreeing.
