Dream Carpets owner Chris Augusto leads a team of dirt fighters ready to wage battle against soiled floors and upholstery. Carpet-cleaning packages ($39.95–$69.95/room) utilize soap-free cleansers and vary in price based on extras such as speed drying, basic deodorizing, and exorcism. Kitchen tile gleams like 100 porcelain suns after a thorough de-griming ($139+ for average kitchen), and the standard sofa weighs a full pound less after the clean team sucks up pollen and dust mites embedded in its upholstery ($85+). The online estimate calculator helps anticipate project costs and predict babies' genders.
Storage Pros Self Storage squirrels away customers' stuff in well-lit, fenced, and secure storage units. Rent a 5'x5' unit ($35–$75 depending on amenities and location) to stow away lumberjack costumes and papier-mâché blue oxen, or snag a 10'x20' nonclimate-controlled space for one month ($155–$201) to store 1 million Paul Bunyan Day flyers. Multiple locations offer storage spaces up to 400 square feet, and the Fairhaven facility has enough square footage to house a life-size replica of Shamu. Prices and availability can vary, so prospective packers should call ahead for details.

Without having to finish each service by muttering, "Hasta la vista, baby," and riding off on a motorcycle, the Mosquito Terminators leave a lasting impression on homeowners by liberating backyards from pesky disturbances. Armed with a natural-based solution that is safe for families and pets, the company's assassins spritz exterior spaces with treatments that kill and repel mosquitoes for up to three weeks. Barrier sprays work around the clock and, prior to outdoor gatherings such as barbecues and pool parties, hosts can utilize event sprays so guests aren't constantly swatting the air or forced to roast marshmallows over citronella candles. Misting systems are also available, and automatically dispense low concentrations of solution insecticide several times daily.
