Easy access to thousands of home and apartment project experts makes it so much easier to be you. Every month tens of thousands of Americans come to Thumbtack for help with their home projects – everything from carpet cleaning and pest control to pressure washing and roof cleaning.
Here’s what you can expect to pay for some of the most popular services offered for keeping your home or apartment looking its best.
Let’s face it, carpets get dirty. Really dirty. Especially in rainy months when you’re prone to tracking the outside indoors. Give your living space a lift for less than the cost of an expensive dinner and you’ll feel like you moved into a new house or apartment. Things that affect cost range from how much carpeting you have to the type of carpet that needs cleaning.
Pest Control Services
Even if you don’t live in one of the buggiest cities in the U.S. sometimes you need a little help getting rid of ants, termites, bed bugs or other critters. The cost of a pest control visit will vary depending on the location and type of service you need, but $85 is a good working ballpark for what most people need.
Just like carpets get dirty – so do decks, siding, driveways and more. A quick power wash can remove grime and tough stains and make your house look like it’s had a facelife. The average cost for a pressure washing is $175 and includes a consultation about the best pressure to use and the best cleaning solutions for different surfaces so you don’t damage siding, windows and wood in the process. When it comes to pressure washing, it’s definitely worth it to hire a pro.
Removing mold and debris from your roof can add years of life to it – if you know what you’re doing. When in doubt, hire a pro – and expect to pay $300 for a typical project. Best of all, they bring the ladders and safety equipment so you don’t have to worry about anything.
The first time you come home to clean windows, it’s as if someone turned up the lights – everything looks cleaner, sharper and happier. Make it a twice a year ritual and you’ll never look back. The cost to clean your windows will depend on the size of your house and location but $125 is a good ballpark cost for most homes and apartments, and that includes cleaning the windows inside and out.
