Without relying on toxic cleaning products such as Perchloroethylene and hydrocarbon solvents or a bucket of melted action figures, EcoClean delivers professional garment cleaning and laundry services that are as good for the environment as they are easy on your skin. Thanks to a special wet cleaning process that uses biodegradable detergents and state-of-the-art equipment, clients can have their dirty shirts and blouses ($6.75), pants ($7), and regular dresses ($9) cleaned to a point of earth-friendly squeakiness. To prep for an important job interview or a mistakenly formal appearance at a paintball field, sport coats ($8), two-piece suits ($15), and full-length formal wear ($40) can be rid of their annoying aromas faster than coating a skunk with body spray. EcoClean also provides free pick-up and delivery (limited area available; call for details). Additional charges apply to items that are lined, beaded, stained, pleated, ruffled, or heated frequently in microwaves.
When students sign on for a Rock About climbing class, they don't just learn to rope their way up mountainsides and trade banter with goats. The company's certified guides also educate clients about the cultural history and complex geology of the climbing sites. On climbing treks to Reimers Ranch Park, owner Adam Mitchell and his team teach top-roping and belaying techniques while exploring the notion that climbing allows humankind to commune safely with the earth's natural wonders. For those uneasy about vertical exploration, the guides offer non-climbing adventures such as interpretive hikes.
The grime fighters at Truly Clear Window Cleaning and Pressure Washing oust filth entrenched in windowpanes, driveways, house façades, and gutters. Window cleaners coat exterior glass in a powerful restoring agent that purges nooks encrusted with hard water, calcium, and minerals. Interior windows are treated with a safe, eco-friendly cleanser before staffers fasten spotless screens back in place. Pressure washing blasts away mildew, algae, and dirt from driveways, decks, and abode exoskeletons safely and effectively unlike a stick of dynamite, which is not so safe. Truly Clear also offers a comprehensive cleaning package, which de-gunks façades from roof to foundation for homes about to hit the market.
As the titular technician at Ward Group Property Services, Norman Ward dedicates his company's efforts to the maintenance and cleaning of his clients’ homes. Norman heads up a team of employees who have each passed OSHA safety training, meaning each service is performed in a sound manner and never capped with a death-defying dismount from a slippery roof. Homeowners can call upon the team to regularly wash their windows to prevent hard water stains, clean gutters of debris and mildew, or pressure wash the mold and black stains off their walls, walkways, and patios.
For more than 25 years, The Steam Team has dispatched crews to residential and commercial sites to clean up and make repairs. The company's insured technicians often begin by hauling out hot-water-extraction systems that use steam to remove embedded dirt. While they're at it, the techs can also clean upholstery and leather, refinish hardwood floors, and clear air ducts of dirt and crawling action heroes. The team even repairs damage caused by fire, wind, and hail. The Steam Team does all this using biodegradable, nontoxic products that are safe for humans and pets.
The Kids Cooking for Charity program provides food for people experiencing hunger and an opportunity for young children to engage in a volunteer activity. In 2010, more than 1,600 children and their families assembled and served nearly 3,000 meals to those in need. Children as young as 3 years old can help build sandwiches for homeless residents at Caritas or prepare meals for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House. In order to coordinate the event, LHH needs funding assistance to cover the costs of food for children and their families to prepare.
