The word “prestissimo” means “very fast” in Italian. Though the company’s cleaners boast an unbridled enthusiasm for work that results in timely job completions for homes and businesses, it doesn’t mean they cut corners. The meticulous window cleaners follow a multistep process designed to thoroughly extricate every fingerprint, bug protein, and suction-pawed Garfield afflicting glass and screens. Hard work has always been the cornerstone of the business, which was founded in 2006 by Carl Scott, a college student looking for a challenging, more fulfilling way to put himself through school. In addition to demonstrating upbeat energy, the team also keeps an eye on the environment by using green solutions and fuel-efficient vehicles, causing nearby weeping willows to burst into rounds of applause. That same conscientious attitude is carried with them into customer homes, where they take care to use drop cloths and shoe covers to protect carpet and all other surfaces.
Before they even cross the threshold of a client's house, the first job for new employees of It's a Cleaning Company is in the owner's own home, where, with three kids, safety is the utmost priority. The staff cleans homes with the same amount of care that goes into hiring new employees. They do a walkthrough with the homeowners before the first cleaning session, which gives them a good idea of how the homeowners want their place cleaned. Then, after the first session, they seek feedback, which can include, "I don't like how that cleaning solution smells" to "Please write my name in lipstick on the mirror when you leave," so they can tweak upcoming visits. Besides their most popular service, regular maintenance cleaning, they also perform spring cleaning, move-in/move-out cleaning, and commercial cleaning.
The chimney specialists at Detroit City Sweep unclog flues of soot and other buildup that might be preventing proper ventilation and posing a safety risk. After laying down a protective barrier to prevent damage to carpeting or interior surfaces, the sweep sets about brushing the chimney from top to bottom. Over the course of the visit, which can last up to 45 minutes, he also performs a 26-point safety inspection and, once finished, informs the homeowner when the fireplace is again safe for use. In keeping with the unclogging theme, the team also performs dryer vent cleanings and gutter cleaning, wherein they remove sticks, leaves, and other detritus from the gutter so that rainwater might run off unimpeded. Detroit City Sweep also offers masonry repair services.
Mission Duct Cleaning's technicians take a methodical, thorough approach to every job. Ducts provide a lot of nooks and crannies for debris to hide in, but the Mission Duct team hunts it all down tactically. They start with the central air unit, be it furnace or air conditioner and vacuum it out thoroughly. Then, they remove and clean all grills and vent covers, unlocking passages into the house's inner labyrinth of vents. That's when they bust out the really specialized equipment: powerful air duct cleaning vaccuums and brushes, mounted on hoses longer that an anaconda snake and far less likely to gobble up any livestock.
The staffers at Ward's Cleaning Solutions boast a versatile resume, possessing the skills and tools to do everything from removing carpet stains and power-washing houses to gingerly cleaning neon lights and sprucing up construction sites. Before making their way to homes or businesses, they load up eco-friendly cleaning supplies designed to safely de-grime countertops, floors, upholstery, and backyard coal plants. Before they're allowed to don Ward's Cleaning Solutions' proud uniforms, the team members must yield a spotless background check and make their way through a thorough training regimen.
The business may be named Right On Time Services, but it's really about saving clients time. Founder LaJuan Whitlow began her personal concierge service to help people focus less on errands and more on their friends and family. In that spirit, the company's vast array of services fall into one of three categories: personal, corporate, and moving. Personal services include everything from running errands to home organization, and corporate services take the form of personal assistants who can help make phone calls and arrange sticky notes and schedules. Moving services can be customized for each client, whether they require a simple loading and unloading of boxes or a full move with packing, cleaning, and intrastate transportation.
