Whereas some companies simply use hot water to clean carpet, Chem-X's equipment blows past water's boiling point and cleans with steam that's been heated up to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. By cleaning with steam, the trained techs can penetrate deep into carpets to remove even the most tenacious dirt and stains without having to worry about over-wetting walkways or accidentally installing an indoor pool. And when these grime-fighters aren't freeing carpeting from the shackles of dirt and grime, they can be found cleaning upholstery, tile and grout, or area rugs.
The textile technicians at Village Cleaners purify wardrobes using a biodegradable solvent called DF-2000 Fluid. This hypoallergenic, eco-friendly solution is sensitive to the needs of fragile fabrics but still has the muscle to break down dirt, grime, and salad dressing around the collar. A fresh dose of solvent goes into each load, along with fresh soap and a brand new filter, to ensure that clothes emerge from the machine as clean as technologically possible and free of static, odor, and allergens.
But the process doesn’t stop there. Once clothes are clean, the staff will starch shirts if requested and replace any broken or missing buttons at no charge. A final inspection sees to it that no spot or stain escapes back into the world, and alteration, repair, and leather care tends to especially needy garments.
A Maidzing's skilled staff pampers threads by thoroughly washing, drying, and hanging or folding them, while they treat busy clothing caretakers to pickup and delivery services throughout north Austin. Tide original-scent detergent purges grime from ornate Renaissance fair outfits, and Bounce dryer sheets leave dandy duds silky smooth and fresh. A Maidzing also separates clothes into color-appropriate groups, preventing unwanted crosspollination by festive day-glo headbands or Christmas sweaters ornamented with beets. Typical turnaround is 24 hours, but A Maidzing Laundry Service can provide same-day pick-up for laundry delivered before 10 a.m.
