Julio's Services Lawn Care arrived on-time for the estimate and day of service. I needed a severely neglected backyard cleared of overgrown weeds. I was under a deadline with out of town guests arriving in a week. They worked thru a downpour of rain and thunder and finished that day. It was a lot of work and my backyard looks terrific (and we're picky.) I would definitely hire again. Quality work! Thank you.

I hired Bella's window washing company and I couldn't be more happy with the work that was done. The work was done perfectly and I will have them back again with no questions asked. Thank you Bella's window service for doing a wonderful job, being very very professional and most of all great communication. Your prices were wonderful and once again the job that was done was perfect. Thank You, Neil

The weather initially made it difficult to complete the job but we kept In touch and the first day the weather was warm enough the job was completed. He showed up on time, was very easy to work with and did a very nice job. His estimate for how much the job would cost was accurate. My only suggestion is that he was listed in Thumbtack for only doing power washing but when he gave me his business card he is able to do many other jobs. Had I known that I would have hired him for other tasks.

Darren and his team showed up on time and did an amazing job. Ultimately, it ended up being a 2.5 hour job, and they were able to clean the entire house (approximately 2200 square feet). I highly recommend that you utilize Fox River Cleaning Services for your cleaning needs.

Impressed with Honey Child! Antonio and team were great to work with! They were professional, answered all my questions truthfully, and even made sure to show me the before and after. I just moved to a new apartment and requested cleaning for a sectional and upholstered headboard. They were able to do both items, as well as, the mattress and an upholstered chair. Quoted me on the spot and did not have a problem staying later for the extra items. Great team!

Painting Brothers refinished my kitchen cabinets. This company has excellent customer service. When I contacted them with several questions, the phone call was returned very quickly and all questions were answered to my satisfaction. They were always on time to start the days work. I especially liked their care in assuring that all work was done to my full satisfaction. They were very considerate in cleaning up the work area every day before leaving. Their professionalism and high quality of work should also be noted. I would highly recommend this company to anyone needing any of the services that they provide.

I couldn't be happier with the service I received this evening!! Colleen fit me in same day as job was requested! She was professional, and the job was great!! She mowed pretty high length of grass as well as got rid of all our weeds on the side and back of the house! She even bagged up all the grass and weeds and took them with her!! That was actually unexpected!! She had knowledge of plants that I wasn't aware of, so that was really nice! They will be removing larger plant stumps next time! Literally a one stop shop! Nice to know her and her husband also paint and do pressure washing. I feel lucky to have met her today, for future jobs!! The price was competitive!! She is now scheduled to come back every two weeks!! I look forward to having her and or her husband mow our lawn for Longevity!

I had a move in clean for a empty house. Priscilla arrived early, which was nice.They cleaned large house top to bottom, including basement, windows, baseboards. I was very satisfied that they were able to clean despite the fact we had started moving items into house. They brought their cleaning supplies, and had the house smelling fresh, including basement. Windows, mirrors were excellent. If they had one more person, I think all the kitchen and bathroom cabinets shelves could have been cleaned. But they did a great job and I gave extra because it was a big job.

I have ordered a house washing. They have done it without pressure, called soft washing. Something new for me. My house looks like new and it better then pressure washing, because they won't damage your house for sure. Deffinetely reccomend.

I desperately needed my gutters cleaned in a house I moved into a year ago. I saw their flyer in one of those mailing envelopes with multiple coupons and called and they came out literally within 2 hours! They got the job done (found 2 birds nests clogging my gutters) and were gone within 30-40"s. I will definitely use them again to wash my windows and clean gutters again.

Initially I met with Ms. Pawelek about a landscaping plan to mainline improve the appearance of my back yard, including the selection and and planting of various types of perennial plants and flowers of multiple colors. Joni prepared an extensive color drawing, including possible additional plantings on the side and in front of the house. We agreed on a plan dictated in the main by the price. The job was done by Joni and one employee in one day, and everything bloomed during that first summer. The flowers bloomed "seriatim" so that I always had color. I was more than satisfied with Joni's work. For all the enjoyment Joni's plantings continually provide, I should have done it years ago. I believe that Joni's landscaping has made my house much more appealing and likely more valuable. Also Joni follows up in the spring and fall with clean-up services, additional mulch, or winter preparation on a "time and materials" basis. My only complaint is that because Joni gets so busy in the fall and spring it is sometimes difficult to get her out to examine the plants to determine what is needed for follow-up. But I am a persistent person, and she always gets it done timely and to my satisfaction. I believe we are now entering the fourth season after the initial planting. I have no hesitation about recommending Joni Pawelek.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Why is it important to clean your gutters?

Rain gutters, those easily-forgotten trenches that hang off the edge of your roof, protect your roof, walls and foundation from excess rainwater. When they get clogged with leaves, sticks and other wind-blown debris, they can no longer direct water away from your walls and foundation, and may become homes for pests and insects. They also become heavy enough to pull away from the house, preventing proper rainwater drainage and spoiling the appearance of your home. Experts recommend inspecting and cleaning your gutters twice a year, once in spring and once in fall, as part of your regular landscaping schedule. Gutter cleaning and maintenance is a fairly easy DIY job for some homeowners, especially on one-story homes. However, professional gutter cleaners have ladders tall enough to safely reach rain gutters, as well as the necessary tools to clean out the downspouts. Most gutter cleaning professionals can also make any necessary quick repairs.

Can a roof be cleaned?

Yes roofs can be cleaned, and yes, it’s a real thing. Roof cleaning may actually be a wise investment to prolong the life of your roof. Overgrowth of moss, grime, lichen or algae can all shorten the life of your roof. If you have black streaks growing on your roof, they are likely caused by gloeocapsa magma algae spores that have landed on your roof and taken up residence. Once the algae has grown into streaks, the organism has usually been growing for several months and it’s high time to have it removed. If you live in a rainy part of the country, such as the Pacific Northwest, there’s a good chance you’ll find moss growing on your roof at some point. The northern part of your roof, as well as any parts that remain shaded all day, will provide a wet, cool haven for moss to flourish. Unfortunately this water-absorbing moss can damage your shingle roof, leading to rot if not removed. Beyond roof health and function, a clean roof can boost your curb appeal and potentially boost your home’s resale value. The national average for roof cleaning costs ranges between $270 and $350, although prices can be higher depending on how large your roof is, how steep your roof is, and what type of cleaning is necessary. Typically pros use either a pressure wash or chemical wash (made with a concentrated bleach solution) to remove algae, lichen, moss and dirt.

Why do I need to clean my roof?

Over time, algae, moss, lichen, dirt and even salt (if you’re near the ocean) can build up on your roof. These buildups can affect the look and function of your roof unless removed. The buildup of organic materials such as moss on a shingle roof can prevent water from sloughing off as it normally would. Trapped water can rot the roof or cause early deterioration of your shingles. Even if you don’t have a shingle roof, moss and lichen absorb water, and that wet material adds weight and stress to your roof — as well as providing a home for insects and other pests, and collecting dirt. For reflective, cool roofs that redirect heat away from the home, algae and moss growths can hamper their ability to deflect the sun, which can affect utility bills. Visually, moss, dirt and algae growths on a roof can have a negative effect on perceived home value and curb appeal. For example, black algae streaks on your roof may cause a potential homebuyer to assume that the roof might need repair or replacement, when it only needs to be cleaned.

How much does it cost to clean a roof?

The national average for roof cleaning costs ranges between $270 and $350. Factors that can affect the cost to clean your roof are the height of your house, the size and pitch (steepness) of your roof, and the complexity of your roof’s design and accessibility. Geographic location also plays a role in roof cleaning costs as regional labor rates and area costs to do business will vary. There are several ways to clean a roof. The most common is pressure washing. Industrial pressure washers can spray over 3,000 pounds per square inch (psi) of water — which is much too powerful for roof cleaning, and may tear off shingles and damage your roof. Confirm that the roof-cleaning pro you choose will only use a low-pressure sprayer to protect your roof investment. For large algae or moss growths, pros often recommend a combination of low-pressure washing with a bleach-based chemical solution. This is referred to soft washing and should handily remove any growths taking over your roof.

What chemicals are used to clean roofs?

Roof cleaning is done to remove moss, lichen, algae, and buildup of other grime and dirt. There are several methods for roof cleaning, which can include a chemical soft wash, pressure washing, low-pressure washing and hand washing. When a chemical soft wash is used, a bleach mixture is sprayed onto the roof. The bleach-based solution is absorbed by the algae or moss, which dies from exposure to the chemical. The roof is then sprayed with a low-pressure rinse of water, which loosens the now-dead material, allowing it to slide off the roof.

For homeowners, the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association recommends a mixture of 50 percent laundry-strength liquid chlorine bleach and 50 percent water. Professional roof cleaning companies will use an industrial mixture that is still safe but may be more effective in eliminating algae and moss growths. Asphalt shingle roofs are the most common type of roof, but each roofing material will have its own cleaning needs, so it’s best to consult with your roofing pro before diving in. Don’t do it yourself unless you can safely navigate your roof, the chemicals and a sprayer system. When in doubt, leave it to the pros.
