Dingy carpets, grimy kitchens, and dryer ducts clogged with lint: the many arms of Chicagoland Cleaners can restore them all to sparkling-clean purity. With a focus on using advanced equipment and eco-friendly products wherever possible, the cleaners create peaceful, pristine environments inside and outside homes. Interior housecleaning services are as diverse as regular maid service and deep cleaning, including hardwood-floor waxing in preparation for sock-sliding relays. The crew purges air-duct systems with HEPA dustless technology, which safely removes debris and spores without releasing byproducts into the surrounding area. High-powered pressure is also available for washing homes’ exteriors or purging driveways, patios, and walls of caked-on dirt and modernist avian art.
The experienced cleaning crew at Appolo Window Washing spruces up the windows of more than 3,000 residences per year. With that much practice, the team has the process down to a science. The team members slough off deposits and minerals with blades before soaping and then swiping their squeegees across glass, leaving a streak-free shine. The team also looks after carpets by wearing protective booties inside homes and protects siding from scratches by fitting its ladders with protective pads.
Window Genie’s scum-busters arrive to each job in a clearly marked chariot armed with the necessary equipment to tackle exterior household dust and decay. Pane pamperers kick off a window cleaning for homes up to two stories by scraping off tree sap, bird droppings, and other hard-to-clean debris with a specially designed blade that moonlights as a shiv stunt double in prison movies. Then, they’ll suds up sills to wipe away dust and accumulated grime, and they'll scrub soiled screens for an extra fee ($1 each). An exterior-only clean endows fixed-plate windows ($2.75 each), double-hung windows ($4.50 each), and triple-track storm windows ($12 each) with enough sparkle to make diamond-encrusted neighbors jealous. Or, homeowners can opt for an interior-exterior cleaning, and careful cleaners will shed shoes before entering abodes to avoid leaving footprints on carpet ($5–$18/window).
The team at Doctor Air Duct believes that the air quality of a home and the health of the people who live in it are inextricably tied. By reducing contaminates such as mold and bacteria lurking in vents and carpets, they work to snuff out allergies, asthma attacks, and other unpleasant reactions. They also scour heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems, allowing the units to operate more efficiently, terrify children less efficiently, reduce expenses for household repairs, and help homeowners save money on heating and cooling.
American Heritage Fireplace's chimney technicians scour soot and finesse flues to leave home heaters clean and free of excessive soot and creosote build up. After arriving at abodes, an experienced sweep performs a visual inspection of the chimney interior and exterior, as well as any connected fireplace or wood stove. Then they’ll prep the work area to corral dust and debris and manually scrub Santa chutes with a brush perched atop a graphite rod. The sweeping process ferrets out ash, creosote, and minor clogs, such as bird nests, squirrel nests, and licorice-rope nests; an industrial vacuum devours the falling particles.
