How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

If you have a problem you can’t handle on your own, many pest control services will happily step in. For help with your critter control, our ratings provide you with information on the quality of service and prices offered by local outfits.

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.
