Everyone sees spring as the time to do a clean sweep and catch up on all the household chores you've been putting off. But if tacking these jobs is more than you can handle right now, hiring outside help isn't a bad option. Let a pro tackle these three to-do's to get the biggest bang for your spring-cleaning buck (and one less thing on your list).
1. Washing Windows
Depending on the type and number of windows you have, washing them yourself can turn into a multi-day project. Professional window-washing services will usually clean the windows (inside and out), screens, and sills as part of the basic package. Some will move furnishings and protect floors and surrounding surfaces at no extra charge. The total cost will be based on your location, the number of windows, and any extras like blinds or storm windows that you also want cleaned. Call several services to compare what they offer. Most will provide free estimates for your consideration. Check the websites of associations
