More than 20 years ago, owner Myriam founded D&J Cleaning Service and christened it with the first initials of her two children, Daniel and Johanna. Though she started out with only a small cadre of loyal customers, her clientele quickly grew to more than 1,200 people. Today, Myriam personally trains her staff and supervises them on a daily basis as they cleanse and organize homes and offices. Aside from vacuuming carpets and scrubbing bathrooms, the team's services range from organizing closets so they'll hold more shoes to cleaning out refrigerators so they'll hold fewer shoes.
In the list of distasteful things you absolutely must do to maintain status as a functional member of civilized society, cleaning the grout between the tiles in your bathroom is somewhere between purging your refrigerator of last month's produce and brushing the cat. Today's side deal takes care of at least one of these unpleasant tasks for you. For $79, Bullfrog Builders will replace, re-grout, and coat all the tile in one room. Wall cleanliness is the yardstick by which mothers measure how well they've raised you; make your mom proud with your sparklingly mature, mold-free walls.
Click and Improve is an online database that fixes homeowners up with licensed contractors, repairmen, and industry experts. With hundreds of services available at the click of a computer mouse, the business's online process breaks down the exact details—and the exact price—of each service before sending a home-improvement specialist to the site. Customers use a drop-down menu to choose the service they need completed, and after filling out a thorough questionnaire and birthday wish list, they can attach videos and photos to their web account to more accurately convey repair needs. Click and Improve then rounds up competitive bids or offers pre-priced services, and upon the job's completion, homeowners relay their feedback through the company's website.
