The locally owned clean machine offers same-day service for no additional charge, taking in suits ($12.69+) soiled from early-morning coffee spills and preparing them for elegant evenings of cocktail-party pie-fights.

The secure after-hours drop-off creates a discreet location to unload shirts ($5.67+), pants ($4.98+), and tin-foil jumpsuits brought back from the future as souvenirs by quantum- leaping relatives.

The licensed, insured, and bonded technicians at Maid to Order Cleaning Services won't just walk into homes and work off a generalized checklist. Instead, they take detailed directions from clients, focusing their eco-friendly cleaning products where they're most needed. Even so, the team takes a thorough, top-to-bottom approach, removing cobwebs and helium-filled pets from the ceiling, wiping down walls, and steam-cleaning hardwood floors.
The designers at Red Earth Tile & Stone decorate homes using a diverse collection of natural textures, colors, and fibers. They help homeowners reimagine floors and walls with the smooth and porous face of travertine—formed in underground rivers—or the cloudy silver and emerald of colored marble. After a flooring redesign, feet glide over the honey- or auburn-colored face of engineered wood, or sink into the gentle give of textured or plush carpeting. Designers can rehab bathrooms with the smooth sheen of glass tiles as well as stacked stone veneer, which gives the appearance of real stone but without all the Swiss climbers trying to scale its peak.
