In 2009, after scouring domestic interiors for more than 20 years, the staff at Little Piggies Green Cleaning committed itself to wielding only nontoxic, green cleaning products. Today, none of its products contain synthetic, petroleum-based chemicals or emit volatile organic compounds, freeing the technicians to scrub and scour without worrying about the health of their clients, the environment, or themselves. They sanitize showers, tubs, and sinks, dust and vacuum bedrooms, and render kitchens immaculate by shining appliances, wiping countertops, and clear cupboards of squatting ex-dinner guests.
A Carriage Regal Cleaner protects wedding veils, trains, and gowns with an antisugar treatment that prevents yellowing for up to 20 years. This 1.5-month process includes cleaning and hand pressing, as well as $1,500 worth of insurance from the Wedding Gown Preservation Co. Dresses return to owners in museum-strength, silver-and-white display chests that let onlookers admire perfectly preserved tulle and rhinestones when they’re feeling nostalgic or when the wedding channel temporarily goes offline.
The official dry cleaner of the UCLA athletic department's head football and basketball coaches, A Carriage Regal Cleaner's technicians also cleanse a variety of textiles, often turning to environmentally friendly dry-cleaning methods. They also speedily ready garments with same-day service on shirts and blouses, pants, and men’s and women's two-piece suits. Tailoring services ensure an individual fit within three days, and shoe repair services extend the life spans of sock protectors in just one week.
At Hilltop Cleaners, earth-friendly dry cleaning practices rid wardrobes of stenches and splotches in a manner that won’t cause harm to the environment. The company—open 24/7 all year—makes deliveries any day of the week, and provides same-day service if requested. Additionally, on-site tailors work to repair damaged duds, ensuring that a torn suit seam doesn’t keep a businessman away from a meeting and an overly long skirt doesn’t keep a marathoner from winning his race.
If Evergreen Air Duct Cleaning's technicians used harsh chemicals in their work, they might do more harm than good. That's why they instead purify homes with organic, mostly plant-based products. Carbonate solutions and water extraction flush dirt and debris from carpets, upholstery, and mattresses, leaving them safe enough for pets and children to wipe their faces on. The licensed, bonded, and insured team also offers a number of other services to get homes back to factory-issue form, such as air-duct cleaning and pet stain and odor removal, both of which improve air quality so families can stop sleeping with gas masks on.
As the president of Miller's Carpet Care, William H. Miller has overseen a team of certified carpet cleaners since 1974. He sends this team across the Inland Empire to remove dirt and stains from carpets and upholstery with truck-mounted equipment. When they aren’t rescuing rugs damaged by wine spills or indoor slip ’n' slides, the technicians scour tiles and grout and clear debris from air ducts. Though homes are their specialty, Miller’s Carpet Care also extends its services to offices, schools, and restaurants.
Magic Touch Carpet Care's truck-mounted system steam cleans carpets with high-temperature water. Not only does this help rid floor coverings of dirt and stains, but also the allergens that contribute to unhealthy indoor air. This same system sucks the water out of carpeting after flooding, minimizing the growth of mold, mildew, and gremlin populations, while also removing dirt from tile and grout. The company also cleanses other household textiles, such as upholstery, rugs, and mattresses.
