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. 

What should I ask a house cleaner or maid before hiring them?

There are many questions to ask a cleaning service before you hire them to make sure they’re the right fit. These questions might include:

  • How much do you charge?
  • How do you set your prices -- per hour or per square foot? Or, do you charge a flat rate?
  • What is your past work experience? Can I see a list of references?
  • Are you accustomed to working with different home or apartment types and sizes?
  • Can you work with children or pets in the house?
  • What types of cleaning products do you use?
  • Do you bring your own cleaning supplies and products?
  • How often can you clean my home?
  • Is there anything you recommend I do (or don't do) to my home before you arrive?

For more tips on how to hire the best maid or house cleaning service, read our smart hiring guide.

How often should you have your house cleaned?

The frequency you should have your house cleaned depends on several factors, and the best professional house cleaner can give you a rough estimate of costs so you can budget how often you need someone to clean your home. 

Daily house cleaning may be necessary if you have a home with a large number of bedrooms with young children and kids, although other homeowners may benefit from weekly house cleaning. A weekly cleaner can clean the bathroom, kitchen, do laundry, vacuum and mop. An occasional deep house cleaning is most beneficial for people who have recently renovated a home or are looking to do a spring clean.

Just used RG service again for a deep cleaning of our house to get ready for sale and Retta and her niece knocked it out of the park. They cleaned everything from the walls, windows, blinds, kitchen, bath.. it is sparkling. If I was in the business of house flipping or property management, I would use them again in a heart beat. I know this review is a gushing review, but we have used other house cleaners and they exceeded them on deep cleaning / sanitizing. Thanks for all the great work on our former home in Milwaukee.

Ciara was very friendly and thorough. She cleaned my entire house and it’s so wonderful to finally have a clean home. She moved furniture to get behind and I haven’t seen my baseboards this clean since I moved in (and probably not even then) I’ll be having her back for maintenance cleaning for sure!

Nakita and her Ms. Clean Cleaning Service has been cleaning my house for several years and I recommend her whole-heartedly. I work from home and am often here when Nakita and her crew do the cleaning. They are always accommodating and professional. Nakita is an excellent, efficient cleaner and I always look forward to her coming.

Brew City Cleaners were able to come last minute to help me clean the house I’m selling and get it ready for listing pictures. When there were more areas I needed worked on the day of the photos, the supervisor Tara herself came back to clean and made everything look picture perfect. Thanks again!

I cannot say enough good things about Bossy Bubbles Cleaning Services! Brandis was very professional, quick, and left my new house smelling like a dream! I hired Bossy Bubbles for a move in cleaning and I could not be happier. She cleaned things that I never would have even thought of, like the outlet covers! I will definitely utilize her services again. She also left us a house warming gift which was so over the top, but so appreciated!! Thank you Brandis!!

I had Brilliant Clean MKE come to my house twice to clean my bathroom, kitchen floor, and living room floor. Neither time did this service vacuum under the couch, nor did they scrub the shower (as requested). There was still mold in the grout and soap scum on the glass tile.

Maria has excellent attention to detail when she cleans. She does the extra things that make a house sparkle. Maria completed the cleaning tasks that just I just never get to, like the crumbs in the toaster oven. She also responds promptly when you are communicating with her.

Nikki is amazing. She is dedicated to doing the very best work at a very reasonable price. My house was in disarray and I needed help...fast. She did an amazing job getting the mess and clutter under control. For me, I had her focus on the kitchen. She cleaned and organized the refrigerator, cleaned the oven and stove, and cleaned the counters. She did such a remarkable job that I had her come back to clean and organize my kitchen cabinets. She never disappoints!

I dropped the ball and needed cleaners for the next day (a Friday) before my parents came to town. BetterCleans responded promptly and within an hour of my request my cleaning was booked for Friday afternoon. The cleaners arrived as planned and spent 5 hours cleaning my house. Genevieve was extremely friendly, communicated with me during the process, and did a great job cleaning some things I had let go for way too long. I really appreciated the last minute scheduling and how professional everyone involved was.

First time for us having someone come in and clean our house. They were very good at making it feel comfortable and were great at accommodating whatever we felt was best. Then on top of that is their cleaning. Can’t say enough about the job they did. A+ thank you for doing a great job and making it an easy decision to keep you guys coming back
