How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

If you want to hire a company, our ratings tables show how customers we surveyed rated local housecleaning services and the results of our price shopping.

Many consumers prefer to hire an individual for housecleaning help, rather than a service. But doing your own hiring brings the responsibilities associated with the role of an employer, such as filling out paperwork and paying various taxes.

The National Committee on Household Employment, before it closed its doors, developed a set of standards for employers and their household employees. The guidelines presented here are from its Code of Standards for Household Employment.

Even if you turn into "that host" who makes everyon leave their shoes inside the front door, there's no way to avoid it: You'll eventually need to have your carpet and rugs cleaned.

If you’re like many Americans, you have so much stuff you can’t control it. It might be time to call in a professional organizer. These specialists can help clear out and clean up garages, closets, dirty dens, even your computer’s hard drive.

From a toss-out-almost-everything approach to hiring a pro organizer, here are concepts and resources for deciding what to keep and what to toss.

Garages so stuffed they won’t hold cars, black hole-style closets overflowing with clothes you never wear. We’ve got strategies on clearing the clutter and cleaning out everything from toys to old dishes to Granddad’s ugly recliner.

You can hawk your past fashion at brick-and-mortar consignment shops or at online resale sites. We’ve got tips and tricks for getting the most money out of last year’s shoes and shirts.
