A branded Royal Maid Service company car pulls up in front of your house, and maids dressed in crisp blue and white uniforms jump or pirouette out, grabbing their industrial-strength cleaning products from the back. Royal Maid Service's professional and licensed maids, supervised on every job, clean kitchens, living rooms, bathrooms, and other environs with an astute eye for detail. Royal Maid Service lives by the motto “we clean homes, not houses,” and it consults with each homeowner in advance to customize cleaning plans and receive special instructions on cleaning the basement Skinner boxes. The company, which currently has hubs throughout Florida, was founded by UK immigrants Kevin and Sheila Jamieson. Sheila combines her background in interior design-a career that got her in touch with people's deep feelings for their furnishings-with her experience cleaning up after three sons. Together, these facets of her backstory inform Royal Maid Service's personal and respectful approach to housecleaning.:m]]
Lawn Doctor's roots lead back to the mid 1960s, when friends Bob Magda and Tony Giordano took on the endeavor of reviving uncared-for lawns in their hometown of Matawan, New Jersey. Their local business has since blossomed into a national franchise with more than 400 locations across the United States, each adhering to the mission of enhancing lawns' allure with time-tested techniques, dedicated customer service, and dabs of foundation makeup.
Before Lawn Doctor's assiduous staffers unleash expertise on swards, they arrive at the client's home for a complimentary consultation to gauge each lawn's specific needs. Uninvited lawn assailants?such as grubs, ants, and grazing neighbors?shudder at the sight of Lawn Doctor's pest-control experts. The company also helps to preserve Mother Nature's receding hairline with organic lawn treatments and natural, eco-friendly products.
Famous Tate, open since 1954, stocks and displays more than 60 refrigerators, 60 washers and dryers, 85 major cooking products, 35 dishwashers, and 40 different sleep sets . But even with all of this merchandise, staffers recognize that the store might not have exactly what a client is looking for, which is why a team of merchandisers is on hand to special order items.
The shop also features a section of clearance appliances that have cosmetic defects such as scratches and unremovable “Mondale for President” stickers. Some of these appliances are even luxury display items that need to be sold to make room for incoming models, allowing customers to find the perfect bed, refrigerator, or oven that fits their budget. When clients find what they need, a service department helps them navigate extended-warranty purchases, financing, and delivery options.
In 1999, the licensed and insured technicians of Aall Bright named their housecleaning business with a dash of creativity?they realized the initial duo of A's guaranteed a position at the top of the Yellow-Page listings. This cleverness reflects their commitment to the business, and since then they've earned a Best of Oldsmar award in 2009 and an Angie?s List Super Service award for cleaning and pressure washing in 2010 and 2011.
First and foremost, the team emphasizes customer courtesy. They exercise this pillar with prompt service and respect for clients? homes during each of their window-cleaning, pressure-washing, or gutter-cleaning services. Team members lay down their jackets to guard grounds against dripping soap solutions, and they don shoe covers to keep floors safe against the dirt that clings helplessly to shoes.
