The home is the biggest purchase people make, with the exception of those who bought limited-edition Beanie Babies in 1997. Because it's such a large investment, it's important to keep it looking its best. That's where interior decorators and the Dream House Company steps in. They meet with home sellers to stage homes, making rooms look their best to attract buyers. They also consult with new owners, or those simply looking for a change, helping them decorate and taking them on shopping trips to use her professional discount at several major homewares retailers.
Inspired by their twin boys, the family behind Green Heat Services decided to create a company that would improve the energy efficiency and health of their home. They had been in the indoor-heating-and-cooling business for more than a quarter century, and so applied their knowledge toward rounding up a capable crew and streamlining the experience for their patrons. A licensed HVAC technician oversees each team during installations and commands the use of portable negative pressure vacuums. In addition to helping families breathe easier via cleaner indoor air, the business lowers blood pressure by scheduling their visits in three-hour increments, rather than having clients wait all day for crews to arrive.
When beginning her own cleaning service, the founder of Greenforce Clean Team wanted to do more than simply tidy up living rooms. Cleaning her client's homes had to go hand-in-hand with keeping the environment healthy, both inside the house and out. This standard of eco-responsibility influences every aspect of the team's methods, including their exclusive use of biodegradable, nontoxic products and the purchase of carbon credits to offset their gas usage. Their dedication to eco-friendly cleaning has gained Greenforce the praise of the San Francisco edition of Daily Candy, numerous corporate clients, and squirrels that leave thank-you notes carved in acorns.
The licensed and insured technicians from San Francisco Bay Window Cleaning make panes sparkle inside and out using a careful, multistep cleaning process. First, crewmembers loosen dirt and clingy next-door neighbors using a mix of water and biodegradable glass cleaners. Next, stubborn spots are sloughed away with steel wool and professional scrapers before the techs squeegee windows with clean water to make sure all streaks are squelched. Finally, they finish by wiping down windows with microfiber cloths and cleaning frames and sills. In addition to windows, San Francisco Bay Window Cleaning can also apply its dirt-ridding expertise to other domestic areas by dusting screens, cleansing skylights and mirrors, or pressure-washing home exteriors, decks, and sticky children.
First Class Carpet Cleaning's technicians understand that different types of carpet require different cleaning methods. That's why they offer multiple forms of carpet cleaning, and knowledgeable techs determine which method is most appropriate based on the types of carpet each client has.
Most carpets are fine with a hot-water-extraction cleaning, but more delicate or older carpets call for dry cleaning, and others call for dry compound cleaning. Regardless of what type the technicians decide is best, they use eco-friendly products and truck-mounted technology, removing debris and lost socks deeply embedded in carpet fibers. The technicians clean upholstery, rugs, and air ducts as well.
