"I recently moved to the area and have a very busy schedule so I was looking for a little help keeping my house tidy. I came across Lucy's cleaning service and gave them a call. I left a message with explaining my needs and was quickly contacted back by one of their employees. I was able to schedule complete cleaning services for my home for a lower price than the other companies that I had contacted. The maid service I received was outstanding. The employees were very professional, worked efficiently, and made sure everything was done to my liking. I made sure to set up regular cleaning services with Lucy's. I would highly recommend them if you are in need cleaning services with a company that has great customer service and will make sure the job is done to your specifications. "

"We hired Clara to clean our home before my sons first birthday party. I was short on time and was panicked. Clara offered to bring a second person so they could be done quickly. And boy what a remarkable job they did! We have had several cleaners in our home and none have been able to get the shower floor clean. It was spotless and white again. We now use Clara regularly. She does an excellent job and pays attention to the details that are often overlooked. She even takes out our diaper pail! We are always so happy with her hard work. "

"Stacey and Frank were right on time and worked hard and did a good job considering my place hadn't been cleaned in months. I liked how Stacey took some initiative and creativity in reorganizing things that were clearly disorganized. And Frank worked his ass off scrubbing out all the built up grime in my bathroom. When asked what else needed to be done, there were a few minor things I caught and both Stacey and Frank did them without hesitation. But after they left, I found a few other minor things that I didn't notice myself, like the chrome in the bathtub not being rinsed after scrubbing leaving a residue that still had to be wiped down (but not as bad as scrubbing as that was already done) and a few surfaces that weren't dusted in the house. But again, these were minor compared to the amount of work that they did do and cleaned up. I like the fact that there are two of them as it makes doing the job go literally twice as fast. And I paid for the two of them what I have paid one person who took twice as long. Their overall price was cheaper than most and for the price it is a good value compared to other cleaners. I would recommend them if you want good honest hard work. Just be ready to follow-up and give them feedback on anything that still needs to be done and they'll be happy to do it."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Who cleans area rugs?

Like your carpets, area rugs should ideally be cleaned at least once a year to remove dust and dirt and help them last longer. In general, carpet cleaning professionals also clean area rugs. Some rug cleaners bring their cleaning equipment to your home, while others remove your area rugs and clean them at their facilities. Either way, the rug should be cleaned with the solution most appropriate to its specific fabric and construction. It should also be completely dry before you return it to the floor.

What is upholstery cleaning?

From your carpets to your drapes to your furniture, all fabrics need to be cleaned. Cleaning upholstery, or the fabric on your furniture, removes the dirt and oils that are transferred to couches and chairs through regular use. Because furniture upholstery can be delicate and colors can fade easily, it’s often a good idea to let professional sofa cleaners handle the job. They’ll determine the type of fabric — usually cotton, linen, wool, suede or microfiber — and the appropriate method for cleaning it, either steam-cleaning or applying a dry-cleaning solvent. In general, cleaning an entire piece of furniture includes a pretreatment, cleaning, and neutralizing rinse to the body, plus removing and cleaning all cushions and cleaning all crevices.

An upholstery cleaner may clean the entire piece of furniture, on a regular schedule or by request, or do spot treatments to remove pet, food, drink, or oil and grease stains. Furniture can also be deodorized to remove the smell of pets or tobacco smoke. Furniture that’s used often, like that in your family room, should be cleaned once a year to keep it fresh and extend its life. Sofa cleaners often also offer repair services to mend tears in fabric or patch holes in leather.

How often should carpets be steam cleaned?

Dirty carpets can be unhealthy for the people living in the home, particularly those who have allergies, so it’s important to have them cleaned regularly; simply vacuuming once or twice a week isn’t enough. Carpet cleaning should be done by a professional carpet cleaning service at least once a year to remove grime and help extend the life of your carpet. Most carpet manufacturers recommend professional steam cleaning, which penetrates deep into the carpet fibers and lifts out both dirt and the pollutants that get tracked inside. Steam cleaning also removes most of the moisture, so carpets dry quickly enough for homeowners to resume using them the same day. Between professional carpet cleanings, your carpet may need an emergency spot cleaning. Pet accidents, food or drink spills, and more can often be effectively cleaned with some water and a drop of white vinegar, although many cleaners will also make house calls for smaller spills and hard-to-clean spots like wine or grease stains.

How can I get my grout clean?

Dirt, mildew and grime can make your grout lines look downright tragic. If you have the ability, DIY tile and grout cleaning is definitely doable. Your main obstacles are time, project size, availability of the right materials and effort. Your first step in tile and grout cleaning is making sure the surface area is cleaned of basic dirt and buildup and wiped down. Be sure not to use a bleach-based cleaning agent, which could react dangerously with the vinegar used in later steps.

Depending on the delicacy of your tile and grout, it may be wise to start with water and friction before proceeding to a cleaning solution. In the shower you can spray the area while brushing gently, or use a spray bottle filled with warm water on countertops or floors. If water won’t do the trick, try a solution of equal parts warm water and white vinegar, and repeat the gentle brushing motion. This combination should begin to lift dirt and grime from the grout. For additional tile and grout cleaning power, baking soda applied directly to grout lines and sprayed with your water vinegar solution can help suds off sticky grime. If your DIY cleaning solutions aren’t doing the trick, store-bought sprays and pastes may have more cleansing power. Rinse thoroughly after cleaning and enjoy your sparkling clean grout.

Tile and grout cleaning supplies include:

  • Old standard or electric toothbrush
  • Stiff bristle brush
  • Spray bottle
  • White vinegar
  • Commercial grout cleaner

How much do you pay for house cleaning?

Hiring a professional house cleaning service is a helpful way to have a healthy home even when your work and personal schedule is packed. House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets, and how often the cleaning service comes. Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $110 and $150. Prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.
