When Ronald Wagster first opened Harmonious Decorating & Remodeling, Inc. in 1983, it was known as Ron's Decorating Service. Until 2007, he and his staff stuck mostly to home painting. But in 2008, they expanded their service list to encompass every aspect of construction and remodeling, including electrical and plumbing work. Today, the employees continue to remodel, waterproof, and even paint homes, all the while adhering strictly to EPA standards.
Window Genie’s scum-busters arrive to each job in a clearly marked chariot armed with the necessary equipment to tackle exterior household dust and decay. Pane pamperers kick off a window cleaning for homes up to two stories by scraping off tree sap, bird droppings, and other hard-to-clean debris with a specially designed blade that moonlights as a shiv stunt double in prison movies. Then, they’ll suds up sills to wipe away dust and accumulated grime, and they'll scrub soiled screens for an extra fee ($1 each). An exterior-only clean endows fixed-plate windows ($2.75 each), double-hung windows ($4.50 each), and triple-track storm windows ($12 each) with enough sparkle to make diamond-encrusted neighbors jealous. Or, homeowners can opt for an interior-exterior cleaning, and careful cleaners will shed shoes before entering abodes to avoid leaving footprints on carpet ($5–$18/window).
