In business since 1967, the garment caretakers at SunLight Cleaners know their way around a stain. With a combination of laundry service and professional dry cleaning, the crew behind the counter renews clothing, bedspreads, and overcoats, folding them into tidy stacks for patrons to pick up. As efficient self-service machines tumble and dry clothing, patrons can while away the time watching SunLight's DirectTV hookup or basking in the waves of free Wi-Fi.
In a few hours, C&A Cleaning Company?s unobtrusive staff can tackle basic cleaning projects, such as scrubbing kitchens, tubs, and floors to unearth noticeably healthier and cleaner homes. Staffers can clean homes on a regular basis or, like manic Santa, just pop in for a yearly visit to deep-clean baseboards, windows, and fireplaces. They use green-friendly solutions for all jobs and can swap in a client?s own cleaning products and tools upon request.
Eleanor and Andre Gelpi opened the first Swan Cleaners in 1937. It was a neighborhood store then, and that hasn't changed?only today, instead of just one family owned and operated location, there are numerous Swan Cleaners sprinkled around the greater Columbus area. Most of those offer same day dry cleaning and next day shirt laundering, and many even feature a drive-thru to help busy professionals and marathon runners get on with their days.
Inside each Swan Cleaners location, staff members utilize up-to-date dry-cleaning and pressing equipment to complete jobs thoroughly and efficiently. In fact, all of the company's staff members learn the craft and science behind fabric care through specialized training courses when they're hired. Beyond its own business practices, Swan Cleaners has also always been prudent about its impact on the community, which is why it still upholds its tradition of cleaning American flags for free as well as holding a title of certified environmental dry cleaner.
Coit Services may have started out as a small dry cleaning business in 1950, but all that changed when the founder began offering drapery cleaning backed by a guarantee. It promised everything from a re-cleaning to a complete replacement if customers were unsatisfied, and it ensured enthusiastic high-fives and repeat business. Coit Services still relies on that guarantee to this day, and as a result, the company now has locations around the country, in Canada, and even in Thailand.
Its technicians travel to homes to refresh carpets, de-grime tile and grout, and remove pollutants from air ducts. They also still perform Coit's longtime specialty service?drapery and blind cleaning.
The technicians at Total Cleaning Solutions undergo continuing education and training according to IICRC requirements, ensuring that each service they provide meets or exceeds industry standards. They specialize in carpet and upholstery cleaning, pulling dirt, bacteria, and children wearing velcro suits from fibers using a truck-mounted hot-water-extraction system along with Green Seal–certified products—products that meet a rigorous set of quality standards and have a lower impact on human and environmental health. The team also cleans tile, grout, and air ducts, helping to lower both interior allergen counts and monthly utility bills by removing dirt and dust from the system, allowing it to run more cleanly and efficiently.
Located a stone?s throw from the Ohio State University campus, Blue Bubble Express?Laundromat houses an extensive fleet of clothes-cleansing equipment that thoroughly washes and dries the garments of students and locals alike. Front-loading washers hold 18- to 80-pounds, and efficient dryers carry equally hefty loads. Express washers digitally display the remaining time in each cycle, and many of Blue Bubble Express Laundromat?s Energy Star? and CEE?certified machines use less gas and electricity than regular devices. Wash-and-fold service lets customers drop off bundles for pickup about two days later, or they can wait for clothing to dry on-premises while gazing into three LCD televisions, perusing the information superhighway with free WiFi, or reading a flipbook on the history of fabric softener.
