Speedkleen's powerful brush system purges carpets of allergens and odor-causing contaminants. Speedkleen teams begin a two-step process by applying a nontoxic pretreatment to loosen embedded debris. Using hypoallergenic products, the cleaning crews ensure safer spaces for children and pets and adhere to the same environmentally friendly cleaning practices used by wild carpets in their natural habitats. In addition to cleaning patches of floor fur, Speedkleen performs mattress-cleaning treatments, hardwood-refinishing services, and flood-restoration services.
Clients who call on Custom Cleaning Concepts' certified chimney sweeps get a free lesson in chimney anatomy. They learn about chimney crowns, flue liners, and dampers, because those are just a few of the parts the team cleans. Homeowners learn about creosote and how often they need to have this flammable residue removed. Or, the team can simply set to work performing these duties—along with dryer-vent cleaning, pressure washing, and other services—while residents relax knowing their homes are safe from fire hazards, allergens, and grime.
A maid dabs a feather duster along a picture frame, while another polishes the hardwood floors with lamb's wool. Under the oversight of owners Marco and Lisa Modesto, the insured crews of Marie’s Cleaning Service arrive at clients’ homes toting certified-green and name-brand cleaning supplies. With these dirt-vanquishing implements in hand, they survey the space to tailor a cleaning plan to each home, which may include services from removing cobwebs to loading the microwave into the dishwasher.
It’s no secret that cleaning a carpet, rug, or piece of upholstery is only half the battle—keeping it clean is the hard part. This distinction doesn't elude Carpet Restoration Specialist's technicians, who thoroughly uproot grime from between fibers by using a two-step cleaning process. Although these professionals can erase splotches and remove lingering pet odors, they specialize in optional treatments that help protect carpeted surfaces against future spills, footprints, or living room mud wrestling matches. The crews also offer 24-hour assistance in the event of a flood emergency, working to prevent as much damage as possible.
Happy Maids' housecleaners pride themselves on always arriving promptly, armed with all the products needed to do their job and vans stocked with rows of brand-name cleaners and industrial-powered vacuums. The professionally trained and fully insured crews have cleansed businesses and houses throughout Chicago's northern suburbs for the past 27 years. During that time, the company adopted the use of eco-friendly products and practices to help both their clients and the environment. Maids wield vacuums with HEPA filters to keep particles from polluting airspace, and utilize Murphy's Oil Soap instead of vinegar on hardwood floors to preserve their finish and save condiments for the traditional postcleaning fish and chips. Happy Maids also ensures consistency by sending the same team of maids to clean the same locations week after week.
A love for Texas’ Spanish heritage shines through in the instructors at Creative Language Center, who are all native speakers, born and educated in Spanish-speaking countries. Working with groups of six or fewer students allows the teachers bountiful time to speak one-on-one or practice bilingual telepathy with their pupils. General beginner levels introduce basic conversation using pictures and mimicry to cover grammar and present tenses, and intermediate levels enhance students' conversation skills, preparing them to ask for directions and make purchases. In advanced courses, instructors expand students' vocabulary, bringing them the ability to speak on current topics, argue and hypothesize, and recite even the most complicated shampoo ingredients. In higher-level sessions, instructors conduct all in-class speaking, reading, and writing in Spanish. General and topic-specific courses start anew each month, enabling budding linguists to join frequently or jump into ongoing sessions.
