After handing off household duties to her stepdaughters in order to teach them the responsibilities of maintaining a home, Stephanie Howard longed for the feel of a sudsy sponge in her hand rather than relishing the break. Thus, she opened The Dusty Daisy Green Cleaning Service, and along with her insured and bonded crew including twin sisters Heather Smith and Holly Smith, she scrubs the gunk from inside clients' bathtubs, mops floors till they shine, and ousts dust bunnies from underneath beds, among other cleaning services. The team also uses eco-friendly cleaning products to ensure services are gentle on pets and kids, handling regularly scheduled cleaning sessions as well as one-off appointments before or after events or for move-in or move-out cleaning.

When cleansing windows' exteriors, each cleaner will evict grime caused by dust, rain, and wayward bugs, and when sparkling the interior side of windows, they'll treat your furnishings and fixtures with respect. Pricing varies by house.
Like the Milwaukee Brewers on the first day of practice, The Dirt Destroyers' staff sports uniforms and name tags. Unlike the Brewers, though, this team is insured and bonded. When they're not cleaning homes, the technicians can often be found at commercial properties and area offices. They also happily trot out to difficult jobs. Construction sites are notoriously messy; debris collects in piles, concrete gets dirty, and bulldozers toss their candy wrappers anywhere they please. The Dirt Destroyers can take care of these messes with their construction-cleanup services, which include high-area cleaning using lifts and scaffolding. No matter the task, they'll run down a checklist to ensure sites are spick-and-span before they depart. At the customer's request, The Dirt Destroyers will use green cleaning products that are safe for kids, pets, and the environment they all frolic in.
Mike Klinter wanted his company to do things the right way. So before picking up a steam cleaner, he picked up a book. He researched many types of carpet-cleaning products and methods, and attended conventions and seminars; he talked to many other carpet cleaners through forums and webinars, and even took unsatisfied area rugs to brunch. The result of this research is Mike's 12-step cleaning process designed around energy-efficient equipment and environmentally safe products.
Founded more than 30 years ago by Gail Kelce, Kelce and Company has grown from a one-woman business to a 35-person-strong staff dedicated to rendering outstanding residential and commercial cleaning services. During carpet-refreshing sessions, teams of insured cleaners operate a powerful truck-mounted steam-cleaning system to abrogate dirt and stains. Area rug cleaning is another coefficient in the business’s service equation, and it includes both pickup and drop off. Elsewhere, the company’s spectrum spans from the large-scale whole-house cleaning to the inconceivably small-scale scrub-downs of subatomic particles. On top of traditional domicile work, Kelce and Company also specializes in a range of restoration services, from vandalism removal to emergency water, fire, and flood cleanup.
