"Tomorrow, Alissa will have cooked 42 fantastic meals for me and she has cleaned my now-spotless house one time since I hired her. She's earned every one of her 5-stars! Details: I love to eat healthy but I'm a bit neurotic when it comes to cooking, kitchen clean-up and house cleaning. If you've ever seen Saturday Night Live's "Anal-Retentive Chef" then you'll know what I mean. I found myself constantly grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning, leaving little time to do the things I enjoy. Something HAD to change. Setting my misgivings aside, I made up my mind to hire a person to cook weekly meals and another to clean my house every two weeks. So one day I posted an online ad that I was interested in hiring someone to cook and clean. The costs, not knowing how quickly I could get services started and my very high expectations still left me somewhat apprehensive. But then came Alissa Boukal to the rescue! After posting the ad, it was less than an hour when I received my first response--a response from Alissa telling me that she not only cleans, but also does meal preparation. This seemed like a GREAT solution for me (one I hadn't thought of), so I waited a short while for other responses, but none came. Oh, I did receive other responses, but not one person other than Alissa offered to do house cleaning AND cooking. We spoke on the phone about my expectations and Alissa followed up by coming to my house so I could show her how I wanted my house cleaned and to discuss meal planning. She immediately set me at ease by indicating that I'd be easy to cook for and that my house would be as clean as a whistle when she got done with it--so I hired her on the spot and made arrangements for my first week's meals and established a twice-monthly cleaning regimen. She made it very clear that she believes very strongly in two way communication--that it was incumbent upon me to enable her to do her job right by clearly defining what it is I expect from her--no detail too small. I took that to heart and I've held up my part of the bargain. I'm sure that's why I am so very satisfied and comfortable with our arrangement! To ensure success, she provided me with easy-to-fill-out forms where I circled the foods--meats, veggies, carbs, desserts, condiments, etc., that I enjoyed eating and plenty of room to enter comments such as food allergies, or anything specific you want her to know. Now that we're in a routine, I give Alissa the recipes I like or I pick some of her suggested meals to eat for the week (two meals per day) and Alissa shows up at my door every week with easy to reheat, refrigerate or freeze cooked food made just for me. On house cleaning day she arrives with vacuum cleaner in hand (unless you want her to use your vacuum) and she's all business, getting right to work on the dusting, vacuuming, bathrooms, etc.--she truly does it all! I am still very apprehensive about hiring Alissa; now not because of her outstanding work ethic/performance, but because she's made herself so indispensable to me that I don't know how I'd get along without her! Thank you Alissa!"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How often should you get your air ducts cleaned?

How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.

Be cautious with companies that offer “whole house air duct cleaning,” urges the NADCA. The company may be using unscrupulous tactics to upsell you once they get started. Before any work begins, always clarify in writing what the job entails and what the cost will be. To protect yourself against fraud, read customer reviews and verify that your HVAC cleaning service has applicable licenses and certifications.

Do you need to clean your air ducts?

Air duct cleaning is done by heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals. The pros use industrial-strength, truck-mounted vacuums and powerful brushes and hoses to clean inside the metal ducts that make up your forced air heating and cooling system. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends duct cleaning if there is “substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts, ducts that are infested with vermin such as rodents or insects, or ducts that are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.”

You should also have air ducts cleaned after recent water contamination or water damage to prevent mold; after renovations or remodeling to ensure debris and dust didn’t settle in the vents and ducts; if you are having problems with allergies or asthma; or when you are moving into a newly purchased home, especially if the previous owners smoked or had pets. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or every two to three years in regions where homeowners use their air conditioning and heater for many months of the year, while the EPA suggests homeowners have duct cleaning done as needed.

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.

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.

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.
