Thanks to Fire House Hauling, you don't have to set your garage ablaze to get fire department trainees to carry away your junk. That's because the company's staff of junk removers consists of aspiring firefighters, who develop strength and agility for the job by collecting unwanted furniture, scrap, and waste from houses and commercial sites and hauling it away. They need all the endurance they can get to handle the task, too, especially when they're clearing out the type of house they tackled on A&E's Hoarders.
The process is simple. Fire House Hauling's crews swing by in their trucks and scoop up any nonhazardous materials, from unwanted furniture and construction waste to appliances and human answering machines. The considerate staff flexes more than just its muscles, however; they also sweep up any leftover debris, and afterward they sort through the truckloads of junk so that they can recycle items or donate them to Goodwill.

Carpet-cleaning technicians from Eco Friendly Services wield an arsenal of environmentally friendly, nontoxic cleansing products.

Afterward, the technicians dry and groom each carpet to make it look as clean and welcoming as the day it was sheared off a wooly mammoth’s back.
