Skokie Valley Laundry and Dry Cleaners breathes neat new life into grubby threads using eco-friendly methods. Changing solvents with each load to preserve efficacy, the outlet's skilled launderers can remove pesky mayo splotches from shirts ($2.20) or poorly executed ketchup self-portraits from bed sheets, tablecloths, and other flatwork ($16.75 for the first 5 pounds, $2.30/lb. thereafter). Skokie Valley's dry-cleaning service forgoes the widely used but potentially hazardous chemical perc, relying instead on safer and greener substances to waterlessly wash shirts ($7.95–$8.50), blazers ($7.95), full suits ($14.50), and more. With the cleaner's convenient pickup and delivery service, customers needn't be home for clothes to be picked up or dropped off.
When dirt and mites penetrate deep into carpets, they can be nearly impossible to remove without professional help. Enter the certified and insured techs at Leco Steam Inc., who use the power of steam extractions to oust bacteria and grime from both carpeting and upholstery.
Using thorough, residue-free cleaning techniques, White Glove Cleaning and Restoration's insured cleaners descend upon homes to relieve them of dust, dirt, and grime. Owners Mandi and Derek's team of spick-and-span savants pummels dirt on carpets, upholstery, tile, air ducts, and dryer vents. In accordance with White Glove Cleaning and Restoration's satisfaction guarantee, cleaners tenaciously scrub homes until each room glistens to customers' expectations, or until grout sparkles bright enough to disorient migrating geese.
Captain Duct's technicians use 100% organic cleaning solutions to boost indoor air quality as they clean and inspect ducts and HVAC systems. Air ducts are rid of dust, allergens, and debris, and dryer vents become safer and more efficient with the removal of harmful lint and rebellious leg warmers. They also tend to heating and air-conditioning setups with repairs, upgrades, and installations for residential and commercial systems.
In addition to using traditional dry-cleaning methods, Lake City Cleaners’ laundering outlets set themselves apart with environmentally friendly technology installed at each of their four Chicagoland locations in Lake Forest, Highland Park, Evanston, and Chicago. Lake City Cleaners offers three levels of cleaning: Classic Care for everyday clothing, Fleur de Lis Care for fine items that require hand finishing, as well as Monarch Care, which uses the carbon dioxide-based Solvair system with a biodegradable cleaning solution. Pickup and delivery services are available throughout the North Shore, Gold Coast, Magnificent Mile, and much of the northern suburbs, and the cleaners’ GPS-tracking verifies the time and location of order of pickup and drop-off.
Forty pounds. That's how much dust the EPA reports the average home produces every year. The technicians at American Duct Pros don't want these pollutants to wind up in your lungs or clog your dryer vents. That's why they deploy powerful suction equipment to clear dust and debris from residential and commercial air ducts while installing filters to trap dust before it can tantalize any unsuspecting nostrils. The team also keeps homes safe from fires by ridding dryer vents of heat-trapping lint.
