A swimmer stands at the edge of the pool, scanning the bottom for her lost goggles. The water is so crystal clear that she spots them immediately and dives to retrieve them. This pool was cleaned by Shane Allen's Pool Service, whose team uses green methods to maintain pool clarity and keep chemicals balanced. The technicians also repair any pool parts, including pumps, motors, and filters to keep water algae-free so pool owners don’t have to hire freelance catfish.
Cleartech Window Cleaning Services began in 1984 as a humble window-cleaning operation. The owners eventually found themselves washing the windows of celebrity mansions in LA, the windows of 45-foot-tall office buildings, and the nails of any Godzillas clinging to high-rise façades.
To clean exterior panes of glass, crews use de-ionized water fed through Tucker Poles, a method that is preferable because it simultaneously cleans the window frames. For the inside of the glass, they use squeegee methods, and remove and clean the screens as well.
Cleartech's crews also clean crystal chandeliers by hand and offer pressure washing to remove grime from the house's exterior. Other services include gutter cleaning and solar-panel washing, a delicate procedure performed with care in order to preserve the integrity of the panels.
The crew at Martinizing Valley Dry Cleaning runs a detail-driven service in order to make dry cleaning as convenient as possible for each of its clients. With more than 45 years of experience behind it, the business has 13 locations in California and two in Arizona. At each one, garments are sent through a 13-step process, which can end in home delivery. In addition to a commitment to their customers, the staff members are committed to the environment, using ecofriendly solutions, which leave a refreshing scent.
What A View Window Cleaning has been meeting a range of home maintenance needs since 1989. Licensed, bonded, and insured technicians repair screens and re-track aluminum-framed windows with their standard window cleaning service, which includes a through scrubbing of each window's interior, exterior, screen, and sill. A 24-hour rain guarantee guards newly cleaned windows from unexpected showers or sudden explosion at the ketchup factory, and brings the crew back the next day for a quick touch-up. On the other side of the glass, technicians can remove grime from mini blinds, mirrors, chandeliers, and carpets, before moving back outdoors to clean up construction-related clutter, scrape away old paint, and de-clutter rain gutters. They can also be enlisted to pressure-wash home exteriors, swiftly flushing away built-up dirt and mildew from flagstone, concrete, brick, and gingerbread.
