Family owned by brothers Mike and Mark Davis, Absolute Best Carpet Care clears the grime from sullied homes with professional, prompt services backed by a written guarantee. For well-trod carpets, expert IICRC-certified rug groomers orchestrate a plan of attack against offending fibers with a full carpet cleaning ($89 for up to two rooms of combined 300 sq. ft.), combining a thorough prevacuuming and stain treatment with hot-water extraction and an optional carpet protector ($0.10/sq. ft.) to ward off future stains. Tile and grout services degunk almost any kind of tile—ceramic, marble, porcelain, or light-up disco dance floor—in kitchens and bathrooms, using cleaning solutions that blast semiporous grime magnets with hot water before suctioning them away. Duct cleaning ($85 for setup plus $10/duct) flushes out the airborne detritus and nesting chimney sweeps that clog your home’s ventilation system, while dryer-vent cleaning ($75) vacuums up years of accumulated lint from inside clothing ovens.

Maids on the Run's soap-and-suds savants unleash their cleaning expertise on sullied rooms during three hours of customized house-cleansing services. The company deploys one skilled grime buster to focus dirt-demolishing efforts on filth havens pointed out by the homeowner, wielding an arsenal of nontoxic cleaning supplies to scrub down greasy kitchens, moldy bathrooms, and Nutella-strewn rec rooms. The cleansing process can also descend to foot-level, fetching dust off of tile, wood, laminate, and vinyl floors with a deep steam cleaning. In addition to typical clean-up jobs such as vacuuming, wiping windowsills, and clearing raccoons out of towel closets, a friendly staff member also helps clients with other tasks including making beds, folding laundry, and washing linens. Maids on the Run provides service from Monday through Friday and Saturday cleanings are available by request. The team recommends scheduling appointments seven days before desired service date.

The Composition of Dust: Of Mites and Mars

When the cleaners are finished, you?ll be able to breathe easier. Increase your satisfaction with a look at one thing they?ve banished: dust.

Whether you're resting in a mountain cabin, traveling through a city, or being vented out an airlock into outer space, dust is all around you. Microscopic particles?usually a combination of soil, pollen, skin cells, and minerals?can pile up quickly indoors. The problem is exacerbated by tiny creatures called dust mites, which gather in groups of up to 500 per gram of dust to devour flakes of human skin while multiplying in number, excreting waste, and probably chittering away. No matter where you are on Earth, a mote of dust is presently traveling straight toward your eye, thanks to the persistent creation of dust in almost any climate humans inhabit.

Even beyond our planet, dust is ubiquitous: astronomers face the universe's untidiness every time they peer through a telescope and find formations of cosmic dust, which absorb the visible light around them. Although it comes from exploding stars rather than flaky humans, space dust isn't so different from the domestic variety: a 2007 paper published in IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science explored the similarities between the formation of dust bunnies under beds and the coagulation of space dust into planets.
