Both care.com and thumbtack.com allow people to search for local household services professionals. People can post their jobs, looking for quotes, or they can post their services, looking for customers. Unlike care.com, which requires people to pony up if they way to get contact information, thumbtack.com does not cost anything. Posting a want ad and soliciting quotes is free! I used it successfully to procure move-out cleaning services for an apartment on very short notice. Why did I not know about this sooner?
