Once upon a time, Swanson's Cleaners technicians would begin their days by firing up irons, stirring starches, and strapping on roller skates. The business was once one of the largest dry-cleaning facilities west of the Mississippi, the epicenter of Salvin Swanson's vast dry-cleaning empire—an empire packed with Sacramento's laundry, even the chain mail of its knights.
To get the job of all this weighty laundry done, staffers needed their own wheels, plus wheels for their hampers.
Now helmed by the third generation of Swansons, the business has grown to 15 locations. In these locations, the team launders and dry-cleans garments with the eco-friendly Revive system, which uses a gentle, odorless, and antibacterial solution made from organic ingredients. Ever mindful of the earth and the community, Swanson's Cleaners recycles its hangers and plastic bags and has collected more than 27,000 coats for local children in need through its Coats for Kids program.
Dry Clean Today started with one location in Elk Grove in 1987 and has since expanded to 8 locations across the Sacramento area, including a brand new Folsom location. Open seven days a week, Dry Clean Today fastidiously expunges stains from favorite frocks and presses garments with haste, offering same- or next-day service. Professional cleaners also purge weather-borne impurities from raincoats or jackets, and keep fancywear spry with formal-gown or prom-dress cleaning. Otherwise, wedding-dress cleaning and box preservation keep sacred gowns in tiptop shape, ensuring that they can be passed down to children, grandchildren, or life-size Barbie dolls for use at their own weddings.
True to its name, Always Green Clean makes eco-friendly practices a priority whenever revivifying abodes. Its carpet cleaning technicians use nontoxic, biodegradable products to steam clean carpets, boasting a 95% success rate on removing stains caused by spilled drinks or Sunday night paint fights. The same level of detail goes into tidying rooms, refinishing hardwood floors, and restoring sparkle and shine with a tile and grout cleaning.
Even if your eyes don't notice a cracked tile or a rough patch of concrete, your feet probably will. That’s why the certified employees at Class A Coatings make floors as pleasing to the eyes as they are to the touch through their design-friendly services. They cover floors with interior concrete and artistic epoxy, crafting a variety of looks from contemporary marbleized finishes accented with gold striations to more traditional smooth, solid colors.
They also give poolside concrete a tastefully distressed look with acid stains and engraving techniques, and their nonslip coatings protect pool guests from slipping or sliding. Some of their materials even resist the sun's heat, keeping outdoor surfaces comfortable all day long.
Bushnells Landscape Industries boasts a vast array of décor for outdoor spaces and gardening tools, as well as flowers and plants, 90% of which are grown on-site. Shoppers can browse the nursery garden and green thumb through locally grown annuals ($3.98 each; three for $10.50) to add a splash of color to black-and-white front yards that were built in the 1950s. As 5-gallon hybrid roses ($27.98 each), 7-inch tapered candles ($4.50 each), or Cretan hand-thrown pottery ($75+) await to brighten porches, patios, and yards, thick-leaved succulents and spiny cacti ($4.98–$25.98) dissuade undiscerning vegetarians from devouring entire gardens.
