Eco Earth Cleaning Services performed a deep clean on my parents house. The house had not been professionally cleaned in...a long time. They did an incredible job! Cleaning 5 years of grease off the kitchen ceiling fan was no easy feat! They were easy to deal with, professional and prompt. I really appreciate the service provided and have signed up for monthly cleanings!

I am very pleased with the care my pets received from Libbey at Purrsonal Touch Pet Care. She stayed overnight with my dogs, took great care of them, took care of my house, and left everything clean. I recommend Purrsonal Touch highly as I received outstanding service at a reasonable price.

Great experience, Kris took great care of our 2 cat's and the house while we were gone. The kitten's were very happy that she played with them a lot and the house looked great when we came back home. She even took care of the mail. We would highly recommend 24/7 Pet Services and we will definitely use Kris again when we go out of town.

Alison stayed at my house and took care of my two shy cats for about a month last May. In my initial phone conversation with her I already felt comfortable and when she drove up and I met her in person I knew she was perfect. She is very open, friendly, and communicative. I felt very confident leaving my house and my two adored cats with her. She has a gentle, calm presence and was very attentive to the functioning idiosyncracies of my house. I had just put in a new lawn and so watering of that and the garden in general was an important extra that needed doing. Needless to say, my yard looked great when I got back! As did the house, and even the cats were calm and happy. If Alison is available the next time I travel I would have her back again with no reservations.

I asked Marina to stay at my house while my husband and I went out of town. Her jobs included, walking 3x a day, feeding them 2x, playing, and loving them. 1 thing I love that she does is sends me videos and pictures of my pups without me even asking. After my short weekend away my 3 dogs have grown very found of her. I have since asked her to come back and my dogs are always excited to see her when she walks in.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is house sitting?

A house sitter watches your house while you are away for work or vacation, or if you have to be away for an extended period. House sitters can also provide pet-sitting services, staying in your home and caring for your pet while you are away. The house sitter can say overnight in your home while you’re gone, or stop by once a day to ensure everything is in order if your pet doesn’t need overnight supervision. Reptiles and most cats are just fine with daily visits and feeding.

House sitting provides major advantages to the homeowner. A regular presence in your house deters break-ins and theft. Home safety issues such as water leaks get noticed and dealt with right away, so you don’t come home to big problems. A house sitter can bring in your mail daily, care for your houseplants, and provide home safety and peace of mind.

How do I find a reliable house sitter?

House sitting can help keep your home safe and well cared for so you can be worry-free while you’re away for work or play. There are several steps you can take to make sure you hire a trustworthy house sitter and do your part to be a responsible host. One of the best ways to ensure a safe home is to hire a professional house sitter. Here are some key points to look for when hiring a house sitter:

  • Reviews and referrals: When searching for a house sitter, always read reviews. Previous experiences will indicate how the house sitter will care for your home while you’re away.
  • Contract: Sign a clearly written contract outlining services to be provided (e.g., mail in each day by 5 p.m.), the daily rate you are paying, and how long the services will be provided. You can also include any agreed-upon house rules in the written contract.
  • Your part: Leave important phone numbers (vet, emergency contact, etc.) and information on where to find emergency items like the circuit breaker and the fire extinguisher, and have a credit card on file with the veterinarian in case of emergencies if the house sitter is watching your pets.
