Committed to providing his customers with the best possible service at affordable rates, Jeff Ulery leads the licensed, bonded, and insured staff of All Pro Window Cleaning as they tend to the windows, gutters, and façades of local homes, schools, and businesses.

Drop cloths, padded ladders, and shoe covers aid in keeping carpets smudge-free, and a call from the team following each appointment ensures that homes are cleaned to the exact specifications of the client or the client's wicked stepmother.
A spring cleanup from Picture Perfect is like a day at a grass spa for lawns bedraggled by ever-abusive Old Man Winter. Let the landscaping staff gut leaves and debris from lawns and flowerbeds with the enthusiasm of a hazelnut fiend scraping the last sweet smidge from a Nutella jar. They'll trim bushes and shrubs of split ends and hibernation beards, and cut down the morbid, skeletal remains of last year's perennials and plants to make way for freshly formed, infantile plant life. All debris generated by the cleanup will be hauled away by the Picture Perfect staff as well, lest it attract curious raccoons or nest-hunting sandworms. Click here for a list of services and prices.

Haul-My-Mess.com owner Ron McCully dispatches crews of strong, careful movers to help clients transport their belongings without stress or physical pain.

Though the orangey wisps that rise over Tiger Air’s service van are meant to pay homage to the company’s namesake animal, they also resemble flames, which are a much better representation of the company’s area of expertise. The trained technicians deploy to homes and commercial spaces, handily tuning furnaces and air conditioners from an extensive list of brands that includes Ducane, Whirlpool, Lennox, and Amana. As they complete their checks, they run through a series of questions—Are the electric connections secure? Is there duct leakage? Have dust bunnies surveyed the space for development?—that can improve the equipment’s efficiency and subsequently cut energy costs. The staff also aims to educate clients on the latest products to improve their home’s air quality, such as humidifiers, filters, air cleaners, and UV lights.
For more than 40 years, homeowners have entrusted their yards to the experts at Weed Man. Perhaps it’s because the employees do more than just perform lawn-care services—they cultivate close working relationships with their clients. This means they are available by telephone or smoke signal any time of the day and promptly respond to faxes or emails within 48 hours, and they also explain the technical side of lawn care to their clients. Of course, what keeps customers coming back is the attention the staff members lavish on grass during services, which range from eradicating weeds with EPA-approved products to aerating lawns to ousting destructive insects.
