The berber-busting detectives at Orion will carefully comb over your carpet for trouble spots, collaborating with you to formulate a blanketing game plan. Your Groupon is for the basic cleaning package, meaning that you will have to move furniture yourself in preparation for the cleaning. Then you can relax and leave the rest to the professionals, who will vacuum, precondition, and use hydrated heat to extract unwanted spots faster than a cheetah changing coats. After a detailed grooming, your textile lawn is fanned by industrial-strength dryers: average dry time is less than three hours.
Mothers know best, but they can't know everything. That's why the cleaners from Mamas with Mops—whose goal is to live up to the cleaning standards of a discerning mom—defer to the homeowner on all matters, skipping a room or altering their routine upon requests. Typically, though, they follow a checklist of cleaning tasks that includes sanitizing doorknobs and hand washing hardwood floors, all with certified green cleaning products. However, unlike with your own Mom or with a school principal shouting insults at you over the loudspeaker, you can talk back; unsatisfied homeowners can contact cleaners within one business day to express concern.
Armed with eco-friendly cleaning products and the confidence that comes from a clean background check, the staffers at My Green Clean Team descend on homes to tidy, dust, and wash every grimy surface. They can perform maintenance housecleaning on a regular basis—doing such tasks as dusting, collecting trash, and cleaning the kitchen—or arrive for more in-depth individual jobs. Their commitment to thoroughness and arsenal of nonhazardous products fuel their work as they clean whole houses, de-smudge glass, or purge carpets of dirt and video games smashed out of rage.
Just like the families that occupy them, each home is different. That's why the extensively trained cleaners at Gleam Services approach every home with fresh eyes. Whether they stop in for a single visit or return to clean every week, the cleaners dust, wipe, and shine in whatever way they deem necessary—sometimes cleaning services even include shampooing carpets or washing windows.
With the help of a high-powered, 48-inch fan, Clean Air America, Inc.'s truck-mounted vacuum system extracts dust, dirt, and allergens out of ventilation systems at a rate of 16,000 cubic feet of air per minute. To put that in perspective, traditional portable or truck-mounted vacuums muster between 400 and 4,000 cubic feet per minute on a good day. Before each session, technicians send an infrared camera into the ductwork to map out every inch of dust or reveal enclaves of ninjas hiding there. Then they move in with special brushes and scrubbing tools, leaving homes with cleaner air and fewer odors.
