In 1964, the family behind West Huntsville and Nukleen Cleaners was delivering milk to make ends meeting, and decided to make a change. They opened a dry-cleaning business, and have been rejuvenating clothes and linens ever since.
JMack Cleaning Service began more than nine years ago as a traditional construction company and has since bloomed into a one-stop shop for services ranging from post-construction cleanup to industrial and commercial cleaning services. Licensed, insured, and bonded cleaning technicians descend on cluttered homes at appointed times, dusting knickknacks and sweeping, mopping, or vacuuming floors besmirched by foot traffic or up to three stooge houseguests. Cleaning crews take special care to sanitize kitchen fixtures and bathroom furnishings and leave appliance surfaces looking polished and magazine-shoot ready. Certified in mold inspection and remediation, skilled grime busters can also rescind mildew and dirt from the recesses of residences.

Girl Friday: Your Private Concierge likes to play hard to get. You have to bid if you want the personal assistant's time—and you may get turned down. Potential clients can call, text, or fill out an online form to bid, which includes the task they need accomplished and their preferred price. The private concierge services span practically every chore and errand you can imagine: spending time with or preparing a meal for an elderly parent, grocery shopping, babysitting, overseeing home repairs, and even planning a party or creating a business PowerPoint. If the personal concierge deems a client's bid appropriate, she will accept the job; if she doesn't, she will negotiate with customers.
Birmingham native David Kanter, owner of Guarantee Carpet Cleaning and Dye Company, brings more than 30 years of experience to each textile he treats. The business sprouted in New Orleans, where he learned to remove odors from area rugs and restore a carpet’s beauty following water damage and buffalo stampedes. After Hurricane Katrina devastated the community, Kanter moved back to Birmingham, where friends and family welcomed his ability to erase ink, ketchup, and ground-in dirt from their floors and furniture. In addition to cleaning and scotch-guarding, Kanter can dye carpets to match clients' décor.
The Quality Cleaning Services’ team of technicians has wreaked mind-boggling transformations, from creating useable kitchens out of chambers choked by piles of garbage, to forging fresh living spaces from rooms strewn with dirty laundry and errant toys. Cleaners with an eye for detail scrub down residential surfaces to prepare homes for moving day or simply a less cluttered life. The cleaners also offer pressure-washing services for outer surfaces ravaged by weather and patches of moss that are just trying to invite the houseplants over for dinner.
The aestheticians at Pamp-A-Roma give hands and feet the star treatment. They trim and buff nails during mani-pedis, before applying standard OPI polishes, glazes, or chip-resistant Shellac. They administer some out-of-the-ordinary treatments as well, such as a jelly pedicure. During this service, feet and toes dip into a pool of gelatin that warms muscles. Additionally, Pamp-A-Roma's team isn't confined to a single location. They travel to homes for spa parties and treat birthday girls and guests to spa services such as mani-pedis.
