Carpet technician Jeff Hill wields more than 35 years of experience under his vacuum, going beyond his company’s name by also cleaning upholstery, hardwood floors, and grout. He and his stain-disdaining team clean shags with a low-moisture cleaning method that keeps drying time confined to about one hour. Environmentally safe cleaning products expunge grime and refresh rugs while keeping pets and children safe.
Next Day Dry Cleaning’s detail-oriented staff thoroughly inspects all clothing and items before refreshing them with a gentle dry-cleaning process. The staff members clean everything from shirts and sleeping bags to comforters, as well as jackets made from suede or leather—the material least likely to be used for a bunny costume. For busy customers, staffers pick up sacks of soiled garments and return them, unsoiled, the following day. And when any item needs resizing or a zipper replaced, they assist with alterations and repairs.
The technicians at Discount Heating & Cooling Inc. have been keeping indoor climates comfortable since 1972. With so much experience, it's no wonder they move so quickly. Techs respond to calls within one hour and, upon arriving, immediately set to work inspecting furnaces and air conditioners with video and electronic measuring tools. From there, the team can either repair broken units or install all new equipment, leaving behind a 20-year warranty owners can proudly hang on their refrigerator.
What once began as a gerontology master’s project soon became a time-saving solution for homeowners across the country. In 2000, Spectrum founder and physical therapist Jenny Nelson became alarmed by the number of senior citizens she met with injuries caused by doing work around their homes. While pursuing her degree in gerontology, she made it her master’s project to found a care company that assisted seniors living on their own with tasks that weren’t simply health related. Soon thereafter, Spectrum Home Services was born and became Nelson’s life’s work.
By 2008, when Hal and Jeanette Fairless opened the Pacific Northwest franchise, Spectrum had grown to serve everyone, regardless of age or presence of free cake in the home. Spectrum’s original focus is still seen in its handyman services, through which techs specialize in building wheelchair ramps, installing grab bars and lifts, and performing ADA bathroom modifications. Cleaning crews come out weekly, biweekly, monthly, or as needed to tidy up living spaces, and organization specialists help remove clutter from busy lives. For local moves or seniors transferring to an alternative living facility, Spectrum’s relocation team will plan the project from start to finish.
