Joe May Valet began dry-cleaning and laundering fabrics way back in 1936, when the Great Depression forced people to give up their glamorous nudity in favor of clothing. At four locations around Atlanta, trained staffers use their hands and eyes inspect garments, removing stains and driving dirt from the fabric’s furthest nooks and crannies. Customers with spare hangers can drop them off, and the staff will recycle them or donate them to charity.
Kiwi Clean Carpet combines their 20 years of experience with trained technicians and steam cleaning equipment all in order to render carpets as clean as the day they were just peach fuzz on the floors of an empty room.

This way, they're able to remove deep layers of dirt and stains and leave the carpet looking spotless, feeling soft, and smelling nice. Kiwi's staff also offer maid services?their maids work with the client to formulate a 48-point checklist that's tailored to the client's needs. That means that in addition to the essentials?kitchens, bathrooms, floors?clients can choose what they'd like the maid to direct their focus to. The staff also uses Green Seal-certified green products, HEPA vacuums, and microfibers in order to keep the planet as clean as the homes they service. Other services include upholstery, tile and grout, and duct cleaning.
