After seven years spent as a banker, Fish Window Cleaning founder Mike Merrick decided to try his hand at something that mattered. He packed up his business acumen, drew up a plan, designed his own uniforms, and finally opened shop in 1978. With his characteristic hands-on approach he grew the small business from one location into a bustling network of 220 franchises spread across 40 states and one lonely lunar outpost. Today, Mike's foundational principle of pairing residents with thorough, uniformed professionals continues to impress organizations, earning accolades from Entrepreneur magazine and a Torch Award from the Better Business Bureau.

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. The technicians employ a six-step carpet cleaning process that includes high-powered extractions, a specially formulated pH-balancing fiber rinse, and deodorizer. 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.
