The staff at Duct Cleaning Services helps their clients take a breath of fresh air inside their homes. They often complete an indoor air-quality assessment to inform their services, which include air-duct cleanings and filter changes. They also have an eye for safety: their dryer-vent cleanings clear lint and debris to prevent house fires.
Inspired by their twin boys, the family behind Green Heat Services decided to create a company that would improve the energy efficiency and health of their home. They had been in the indoor-heating-and-cooling business for more than a quarter century, and so applied their knowledge toward rounding up a capable crew and streamlining the experience for their patrons. A licensed HVAC technician oversees each team during installations and commands the use of portable negative pressure vacuums. In addition to helping families breathe easier via cleaner indoor air, the business lowers blood pressure by scheduling their visits in three-hour increments, rather than having clients wait all day for crews to arrive.
Technicians from Oren’s Services take dirt to task, whether it’s embedded in the carpet, floating in the air ducts, or clogging the gutters. They use steam cleaners to scour carpets for dirt and stains, and they use negative-pressure vacuums to remove germs and toxins from the air ducts. In their pursuit of keeping homes clean and safe, they also offer dryer-vent-, gutter-, and attic-cleaning services.
Committed to truly green practices, Blu White Cleaners freshens up soiled duds with chemical-free wet-cleaning processes that deodorize and clean finicky fabrics. Using biodegradable detergents, staffers soak shirts ($1.85–$2.15), pants ($6.50–$7.50), suits ($12.95–$14.95), dresses ($11.95–$14.95) and other garments in a water-based cleaning solution that provides a CEPA-approved alternative to harsh dry-cleaning chemicals that is safe for fabrics too delicate for machine washings or wind scrubbings from busy skydivers. De-soiled duds can be picked up within 72 hours, allowing patrons to keep wardrobes stocked with outfits as sparkling and fresh as a germaphobe's disco ball.
The home is the biggest purchase people make, with the exception of those who bought limited-edition Beanie Babies in 1997. Because it's such a large investment, it's important to keep it looking its best. That's where interior decorators and the Dream House Company steps in. They meet with home sellers to stage homes, making rooms look their best to attract buyers. They also consult with new owners, or those simply looking for a change, helping them decorate and taking them on shopping trips to use her professional discount at several major homewares retailers.
Clean Green Carpets’ IICRC-certified technicians go about their work with hot steam extraction and Procyon's eco-friendly cleaning solution. Procyon doesn't have any odors, VOCs, toxins, or harsh cleaning chemicals, making it safe for the whole family, including furry friends such as Robin Williams. And because it’s soap-free, it doesn’t leave behind a sticky residue that attracts more dirt and grime immediately after a cleaning.
To ensure a thorough job, the technicians use a seven-step process that starts with a walk through, a vacuum, and a pre-spray. Then comes a deep cleaning and a hot steam extraction that's low in moisture to allow for faster drying. Finally, it's time to apply protectant, groom the carpet, and step back to celebrate the downfall of pet odors and allergy-causing dust mites.
