Just The Basics Home and Office Cleaning dispatches bonded and insured cleaners to clean and beautify area homes and offices, just as they have for the last 20-plus years. With owner-provided cleansers in hand—or Just The Basics' products for an additional fee—the housecleaner wipes dust from all room surfaces before moving on to clean grimier sections of living quarters, such as kitchen appliances, bathrooms, and ceramic tiles. Washing of laundry and dishes is also included in each cleaning. After the service, owners find floors washed and swept, rugs vacuumed, and dust bunnies no longer able to reproduce. Each team member of Just The Basics also undergoes a prescreening before employment, adding to the sense of peace of mind the company hopes their work imparts in their home and office clients.
When The Original Chimney Sweep first opened in 1976, founder Dennis Arseneau could be found gracing rooftops and sweeping away soot while dressed to the nines in a top hat and tails. Today, he's retired the Dick Van Dyke number and lets his service record speak for itself. Over the course of 30 years, the Arseneau family has reaped more than 56,000 loyal customers across southern Massachusetts and Rhode Island thanks to Dennis's detail-oriented approach to service, which includes offering free estimates and keeping homes free of sootprints. Beyond inspecting flues of all shapes and sizes, his team can inspect and clean dryer vents, oil- and gas-burning appliances, and carbon monoxide detectors, and even offers a selection of fireplace accessories, such as screens, grates, and kindling made from handwritten love letters.
Lapels Dry Cleaning's professional staff purifies prized fabrics with environmentally friendly practices that have earned the cleaners certification as an EnviroStars business. Prices vary from location to location, but customers can drop off sullied sweaters ($6.25+), pants ($6.35+), two-piece suits ($13.45+), or down comforters ($30+) for a cleansing encounter with an odorless, nontoxic solvent. As a further commitment to eco-friendly commerce, Lapels recycles all hangers and bags, and uses only low-energy LED signage rather than coal-powered billboards or easily weaponized nuclear marquees.
Amid the cheerful orange walls of Extreme Clean Laundry, rows upon rows of advanced, stainless-steel washers and dryers bustle and hum while cleansing vestments. Four jumbo washers scrub loads of up to 60 pounds within 12 minutes, and the massive dryers can tackle up to 75 pounds at a time. A rechargeable-swipe-card system eliminates the need to use up quarters or valuable antique doubloons and three flat-screen televisions tower over the expansive seating area where video games and vending machines abound.
In addition to self-service laundry, Extreme Clean Laundry lets customers drop off their soiled duds. Armed with quality detergents and softeners, staff members meticulously wash, dry, and fold each item, matching socks, spot-checking for stains, and combing through gorilla suits to remove banana remnants.
So Fresh & So Clean's staff offers cars, trucks, bikes, boats, airplanes, and motorized bathtubs the soft lamb's-wool mitts and chamois cloths they need to look sharp on any highway or parking lot. Their services—available both onsite and via mobile wash units that can hit the roads 24 hours a day—include auto reconditioning, ozone treatments, hand car washes, and complete showroom details. To attract even the busiest drivers, the doors stay open at most locations from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week.
