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.

Found C&K Cleaning on the web and very pleased we did. From my first email we had an immediate response followed up with a phone call shortly after. The discussion we had was very professional and I was given a excellent overview of their services and what was I looking for to be achieved. They arrived on time and ready to clean! We had a quick tour of the house, reviewed what we asked to be clean, we then stepped aside and let them do what they do best. The team were very fast, detailed and the end result was superb!! I do not believe our house has ever been this clean. A great team of folks who take pride in their work, and it shows. A very pleased and satisfied customer.

Staff were responsive and friendly. Took a chance since they were not recommended through friends, family or acquaintances. Quote was very high, $160 for a small home but I figured it would be worth it over spending our free time this summer cleaning. Primarily wanted help with dusting (including base boards), washing floors and bathroom area. Our house is well kept and clean therefore just wanted help with disinfecting. Two staff cleaned for 3 hours so a total of 6 hours. The only thing I noticed was a bleach smell in the bathroom and the the tub looked a bit cleaner but there were yellow streaks coming down the side of the bathtub. I found dust (and a few small cobwebs) was still remaining on the base boards and the porch area I pointed out was not even touched. Feeling disappointed to waste the money and not going to continue utilizing this company. Overpriced and not worth it in my opinion.

Nicole and her team at Humming Byrd were great to work with. They provided cleaning services for our 5BR/3BA home in Waukesha. From the first time we met when they came out to give us a free estimate, they were very professional, really listened to what I wanted and were willing to work out something within my budget. When the team came out for the first clean, they came on time (actually even a bit early to set up) and brought all the supplies they needed. They were thorough, followed my specific requests and did not cut corners, even though there was a lot of house to clean. Overall, I was pretty satisfied with the quality of their work and have only a few minor suggestions for things they can do differently next time they come. Also, Nicole was very prompt in following up with me after the first clean to see how things went. Overall, I have given them a 4 star rating because I've only had one cleaning by them so far but I'm sure their rating will go up as I anticipate they will provide consistently good, reliable and affordable service.
