Discount Carpet Care’s certified technicians call on a combined 50 years of experience to transform dingy carpets into immaculate floor accents. Technicians arrive at homes ready to move any furniture or traffic cones currently being used to shelter stains, before unleashing steam-cleaning equipment to dislodge dirt from clinging fibers. Afterward, cleaned carpets are ready to be re-trod upon in two to three hours. Customers can schedule appointments online, preserving the dignity of carpets, which would rather not overhear owners referring to them as “dirty” on the phone.
With more than a decade of experience, Damian Ford Cleaning Services, Inc. knows cleaning and offers everything from floor cleaning and housecleaning to restroom sanitation and estate cleaning. The company's fully insured technicians use traditional or ecofriendly products to rid carpets of grime or restore linoleum with a layer of specialty wax. Homeowners may also solicit the company's housecleaning services for routine cleanings or a one-time cleanup after a birthday celebration, anniversary gathering, or tomato-smashing party.
Whether you're resting in a mountain cabin, traveling through a city, or being vented out an airlock into outer space, dust is all around you. Microscopic particles—usually a combination of soil, pollen, skin cells, and minerals—can pile up quickly indoors. The problem is exacerbated by tiny creatures called dust mites, which gather in groups of 100 to 500 per gram of dust to devour flakes of human skin while multiplying in number, excreting waste, and probably chittering away. No matter where you are on Earth, a mote of dust is presently traveling straight toward your eye, thanks to the persistent creation of dust in almost any climate humans inhabit.
Even beyond our planet, dust is ubiquitous: astronomers face the universe's untidiness every time they peer through a telescope and find formations of cosmic dust, which absorb the visible light around them. Although it comes from exploding stars rather than flaky humans, space dust isn't so different from the domestic variety: a 2007 paper published in IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science explored the similarities between the formation of dust bunnies under beds and the coagulation of space dust into planets.
While most cleaning companies are content to leave floors clean enough to eat off of, the team from L & S Maid Service strives to leave them safe to eat off of as well. These cleaners wipe away dust with microfiber cloths, polish surfaces with Green Seal–certified products, and use HEPA-filter vacuums to clean up after the kids leave a trail of breadcrumbs to remember how to get to the kitchen. They use green cleaning techniques not only during new baby cleaning services, but also during regular house and commercial cleaning sessions. In addition, L & S Maid Service's staff can clean carpets and straighten up messes after construction projects or parties.
The folks at Maid In DC use microfiber cloths and HEPA-filtered vacuums to bring homes to their cleanest forms. They remove dust, dirt, and grime from the home and make living spaces easy on those with children, pets, and allergies. The trained and screened cleaners take contaminants to task in bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms. See their cleaning itinerary––it outlines their process, which covers everything from windowsills to appliances.
Elite Cleaning Services’ staffers spend between two and three hours scrubbing each DC-metro-area home they visit during their convenient Monday–Saturday workweek. Professional grime eradicators descend on cluttered homes at appointed times between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., dusting knickknacks and sweeping, mopping, or vacuuming floors besmirched by foot traffic or one to three Stooge houseguests. Workers take special care to sanitize kitchen fixtures and bathroom furnishings, and leave kitchen-appliance surfaces looking polished and magazine-shoot ready. For smoothest service, Elite recommends that clients leave staffers a list of cleaning preferences and items that they shouldn't touch, stack fresh linens on the beds, and clean up any scattered toys, clothes, and flesh-eating chupacabras lying around.
