After seven years spent as a banker, Fish Window Cleaning founder Mike Merrick decided to try his hand at something that mattered. He packed up his business acumen, drew up a plan, designed his own uniforms, and finally opened shop in 1978. With his characteristic hands-on approach he grew the small business from one location into a bustling network of 220 franchises spread across 40 states and one lonely lunar outpost. Today, Mike's foundational principle of pairing residents with thorough, uniformed professionals continues to impress organizations, earning accolades from Entrepreneur magazine and a Torch Award from the Better Business Bureau.
The technicians at Hi Tech Carpet & Air Duct Cleaning enlist the help of advanced industrial equipment to cleanse carpets, air ducts, upholstery, area rugs, and dryer vents. Hot-water-extraction systems one-up traditional vacuums by sanitizing carpets and freshening their appearance. Vacuum-equipped Rotobrush systems travel throughout interior ductwork, simultaneously dislodging and containing built-up contaminants. Like superheroes who have lost their capes, the technicians travel in trucks to sites of flood and fire. There, they carry out emergency services such as wood-floor drying and sewage cleanup.
Joe May Valet began dry-cleaning and laundering fabrics way back in 1936, when the Great Depression forced people to give up their glamorous nudity in favor of clothing. At four locations around Atlanta, trained staffers use their hands and eyes inspect garments, removing stains and driving dirt from the fabric’s furthest nooks and crannies. Customers with spare hangers can drop them off, and the staff will recycle them or donate them to charity.
The licensed and insured cleaners behind Fantastic Cleaning Service scour homes and offices with one-time, biweekly, or monthly services. Whether big or small, each job is backed by a satisfaction guarantee, and Fantastic Cleaning Service's professionals never trap clients into future service by tricking them into signing a contract or a freshly cleaned couch cushion. Each standard cleaning service sees the staff wiping away grime from shelves, floors, and appliances throughout the house and subduing dirt and mildew inside bathrooms. Upon request, they can even purge ovens, refrigerators, and cabinets, and—for an additional fee—they offer deep-cleaning services that scrub every inch of the abode from the baseboards to the inside of the microwave.
