Window Genie restores sullied residences to spotless states with a comprehensive array of cleaning and preventive services. The company’s experienced technicians absolve windows of dirt and smudges by hand, employing squeegees to polish out-of-reach panes and gloves to catch pies catapulted from warring neighbors’ backyards. Windows also benefit from an optically clear tint technicians can apply in a variety of shades to repel incoming UV rays and protect interiors from fading, heat, and glare.
Window Genie’s deck-cleaning and pressure-washing services help keep house exteriors pristine, and technicians seal decks, clean gutters, and install durable gutter filters to ensure year-round protection from debris, snow, and water-sliding squirrels.
Moorpark Pool Service keeps pools pristine with weekly, monthly, and annual services. In weekly cleanings, staff check and add chemicals as needed, as well as performing netting, wall brushing, and vacuuming. In monthly visits they ensure that filters stay free of gunk, and in annual inspections they perform long-term checks on conditioners.
As board members of The Independent Pool and Spa Service Association (IPSSA), staff receive continual education and liability coverage. Additionally, if they cannot make a scheduled appointment for any reason, IPSSA sends a qualified pool tech in their place to ensure that filters stay clean and pools don't slowly fill with marmalade.

"I worked by myself in Costa Rica, and I always had a dream to have a business here," says Nidia Wolff. She has lived in the United States for 20 years, learning a new language so that she could go to school, earn a college degree, and share her passion for helping others. After graduation, she found a business partner and started a cleaning company. But in the end, it wasn't her dream. The business wasn't hers. "Four years ago, I left everything to the partner, started all over fresh by myself. That's what I wanted," she says. "Starting over is scary for some. Starting everything fresh, for me, was a blessing."
Now, vaunting a motto of "We don't cut corners, we clean them," Nidia's family-owned-and-operated business and her small staff of cleaning technicians use their own supplies, always have eco-friendly products on hand, and sing hypoallergenic cleaning songs for those who ask in advance. Whether steam-cleaning carpets or deep-cleaning a house, their only goal is pleasing the customer. "When we finish a job, they'll say, 'Wow that looks like a new stove' or, 'That looks like a brand new tub," Nidia says. "Everyday I'm excited to see people's faces. A satisfied face is everything."
If you peek into the Skinny Wimp Moving Co office, you might catch a glimpse of the company's movers engaged in an impromptu weight-lifting session. But they won't be lifting traditional dumbbells; instead, they train by repeatedly lifting heavy appliances and weighted chairs through door jambs. The goal of these exercises isn't just to build muscle: it's also to perfect carrying techniques so that they can transport belongings quickly without scratching walls or narrow doorways. Working in groups, the licensed, insured movers use these techniques to take the stress out of local and long-distance relocations.
