Cleanliness is next to convenience at The Laundry Center, which promises a 72-hour turnaround time for dry-cleaned garments and a 24-hour turnaround for its wash-and-fold service—not to mention free pickup and drop-off. Even scheduling the pickup is easy, since customers simply make a reservation online or via text and await a visit from an attendant. When clothes are ready, the attendant returns, though he stops short of holding trousers open so the owner can jump into them from atop a credenza. The center shoos off stains with high-efficiency washers and dryers and products by Tide and Downy, though organic products are available at no extra charge upon request.
EV Quality Air's technicians travel to residences in all five boroughs to scour air ducts, dryer vents, and furnaces, ridding them of dirt, lint, and dust buildup. By cleaning air ducts of the dust and pet fur and dander, they improve the quality of indoor air. They also help clients save money on their electric bill by removing lint in dryer vents. When lint sticks around, it increases dryer time and the amount of energy needed.

During the boiler inspection, a licensed and insured technician will thoroughly inspect the boiler in question before performing any necessary repairs or maintenance services.

Teaming handy online scheduling with a speedy squad of laundry machines, iLoad cleans clothes and then quickly delivers them to customers' homes. Each wash-and-fold session ($1/lb., 12 lb. minimum) starts with a sorting ceremony before whites are whitened and colors are brightened during multiple trips down the washer rapids and relaxing tumbles dry. Customers can choose their favorite detergent and softener, as well as the wash and dry temperatures. Folding artists will then transform garments into origami cranes, which will fly to their owners' doorsteps at predetermined times. Those in a hurry may select complimentary same-day service during the week, while those with mysteriously shrinking pants can request a free line-dry. The iLoad staff can also launder musty rugs ($5+), muddy sneakers ($4.50/pair), and tear-stained pillows ($4+). iLoad is closed on Saturdays, so plan ahead when scheduling your weekend pick-up and delivery.
Armed with green, nontoxic cleaning products, Bravo Maids’ fleet of cleaning experts sweep through homes, apartments, and offices to restore premises to a pristine shine. Each job is customized, and customers are encouraged to leave a list of requests for the crew, such as to please sanitize the bathroom or please ignore the possum carcasses stuffed in the freezer. The team can clean almost anything, including, but not limited to, ceiling fans, windowsills, and appliances. They also spruce up sites postconstruction, and offer less frequently needed services, such as carpet shampooing and floor polishing. When not scrubbing surfaces clean of blueberry jam, the Bravo Maids keep busy organizing garages and closets, or helping homeowners rid their space of unwanted clutter.
