The very unfair competition

I just want to express my concern about the prices of my competition. There are cleaning services offering deep cleanings of large homes in the Boston area for as low as $60 and it is impossible to compete. I pay taxes, business insurance, and pay my employees a living wage. I noticed that Thumbtack does not require companies to provide proof of business insurance or proof of paying taxes or employees. $60 for cleaning won't even cover my overhead. 

We are a legitimate and reputable business and it just isn't a level playing field for some of these other companies who I have to assume don't pay taxes or insurance if they are charging $60 per cleaning
I spend up to $200 a week on Thumbtack for leads and I am happy to pay, but more of these leads need to turn into closed business and the market is just flooded with too many companies
