A family business for four generations, Jim Massey Cleaners has been restoring garmental reputations in the Montgomery area since 1941, and recently won first place in the Montgomery Reader's Choice Awards for best dry-cleaner in 2010. Whether unsullying special shirts ($2.49), priceless pants ($6.44), or everyday tuxedo jackets ($6.44), Jim Massey's clean team provides diligent, and punctual care. The company also offers free pick-up and delivery service in the Montgomery area, allowing customers to easily remix dirty clothes, except for birthday suits, which can be cleaned, but can only be dried during sprints through the university's quad.
Because Time Flies is more than a business name. It's a statement of purpose. Its staff of professional cleaners understands that household chores detract from time spent with family and friends and attending important social events. Thus, the cleaners dedicate themselves to tidying everything from floors and light fixtures to sinks and counters, allowing clients to devote their lives to what really matters.
People have many reasons to be wary about having their carpets professionally cleaned. Fortunately, the staff at Safe-Dry of Birmingham have figured out a workaround for just about all of them. First, they've swapped harsh solutions for one made from biodegradable, natural ingredients that are safe for kids and pets. This solution lifts away dirt with carbonated bubbles that penetrate deep into the pile, leaving the carpet free of dirt-attracting residue. And unlike traditional carpet cleaning solutions, which can take hours and hours to dry, this solution dries in just under one. The licensed and bonded team back up their work with a money-back guarantee, and strives to arrive on time for every appointment.
Girl Friday: Your Private Concierge likes to play hard to get. You have to bid if you want the personal assistant's time—and you may get turned down. Potential clients can call, text, or fill out an online form to bid, which includes the task they need accomplished and their preferred price. The private concierge services span practically every chore and errand you can imagine: spending time with or preparing a meal for an elderly parent, grocery shopping, babysitting, overseeing home repairs, and even planning a party or creating a business PowerPoint. If the personal concierge deems a client's bid appropriate, she will accept the job; if she doesn't, she will negotiate with customers.
Birmingham native David Kanter, owner of Guarantee Carpet Cleaning and Dye Company, brings more than 30 years of experience to each textile he treats. The business sprouted in New Orleans, where he learned to remove odors from area rugs and restore a carpet’s beauty following water damage and buffalo stampedes. After Hurricane Katrina devastated the community, Kanter moved back to Birmingham, where friends and family welcomed his ability to erase ink, ketchup, and ground-in dirt from their floors and furniture. In addition to cleaning and scotch-guarding, Kanter can dye carpets to match clients' décor.
