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.

HotMops transformed my dad's house to prepare it for listing, including some serious dirt/dust in some closets and a few walls that a muddy dog liked to pass. It was a huge house and she was willing to return to clean the upper flat as well. Not only is the huge house cleaner than it's seen in years, but excellent suggestions were provided as a practical matter for selling. She is kind, straightforward and willing to do the work.

HotMops took care of my move-in clean the morning before we got there. When we area opened the door the house smelled so clean. Everything was spotless, very happy with the service.

I needed some help getting the house cleaned as lately I haven't been able to keep up with it myself. Renee is very nice, friendly, thorough and did a great job. I would absolutely hire her again to clean my house and we'll definitely recommend her to others. She's quick to get back to you and is great with answering questions. Definitely recommended! My house looks amazing and she went above and beyond! Thanks Renee!

She did a very good job. We just moved in to our house and the house needs cleaning especially the kitchen. We tried to get the goo off the cabinets, and we were unsuccessful. Emma does a great job. Would hire her again.

We hired Jennie to clean our our elderly parents' old house. It was a big job, and Jennie handled everything wonderfully. We really appreciated her work ethic and communication, too. We did not live in the same state as the house so that was crucial. I highly recommend her and will use her again in the future.

They did great work. Came with everything they needed and the ability to use apple Pat was a very nice addition. I got a deep cleaning as I just moved in to my new place, so I had a lot of moving debris in addition to needing several bigger items done like the oven. Even helped me move a few items around before they left. Thank you for helping make my move less stressful and setting me up in my new house with success!!

I've relocated and hired HotMops to clean my house for Realtor showings. I was quoted $175 for 7 - 8 hours. I had a friend let her in at 9:00 a.m. and she thought she would be done at 3:00 p.m. (her estimate). My friend was called at 3:00, and said she needed another hour. My friend came back at 3:00, paid her $250 (quoted amount plus $75 tip) and it appears HotMops left as soon as he did. Two upstairs full bathrooms were completely untouched! The work on the lower level was satisfactory, however not completing the job or notifying me before the realtor came in to take pictures speaks volumes of her character.
