Bruce Broderick began his career in the cleaning industry 37 years ago before funneling his expertise into establishing Sun Coast Cleaning & Restoration in 1988. The bonded, licensed, and locally trusted company has since grown to encompass many areas of housecleaning, including tile, grout, and air-duct work. After teams of carpet whisperers enter homes, they scrub soiled fibers free of stains, pet odors, and pulverized remote controls. They perform area rug cleanings either in the home with deep steam or at the company’s central plant with complimentary rug pick-up and delivery. Grayed grout gives up its stains under the hands of trained technicians, who wield high-pressure and chemical-free vacuum systems to restore the materials, or move their focus to upholstery, which they custom-treat based on the fabric. Sun Coast can also spiff homes on request with biodegradable cleaning products that are kind to the earth, allergy sufferers, and overworked landfills.
The suds-smiths at Eagle Cleaners purify clothing of blemishes and imperfections. Stain-hunters track down specks as tenaciously as detectives pursue corrupt aldermen, then dissolve them with a soil-loosening pretreatment and powerful solvent. Restore two-piece suits to their pre-appetizer glory ($11.25), or send dresses back in time to avert champagne-spattering collisions ($10.99). The tidying techs blaze paths to unsoiled freedom for hard-playing sport coats ($5.99) and winter-worn sweaters ($6.99). Shirts and blouses swim through the cleaning vat, emerging from the pool purged ($5.75). Customers living from Indiantown Road to Northlake Boulevard and from the ocean to the turnpike need never leave the comfort of their pillow forts, as free pickup and delivery can be arranged online.
The professional grime-fighters of Meier's Pressure Washing scrub away dirt and discoloration with a bevy of power washing and pool-cleaning services. Rather than blast haphazardly, Meier's crews use the least amount of pressure possible to do a thorough job, thereby preserving the integrity of the surfaces they clean. Wielding a high-power pressure-washing unit, Meier's team will de-gunk small patios and driveways ($79 for fewer than 360 sq. ft.), removing surface contamination such as oil stains and tragic games of hopscotch. The cleaning captains remove dirt from weathered exteriors with a home-pressure wash ($99 for single story, up to 1800 sq. ft.), as well as apply an exclusive detergent before brightening up average-sized pool patios ($99).
The fastidious crew at Tropical Cleaners, a commercial endeavor dating back to 1995, offers same-day service for most garments, cleaning everything from men’s slacks to women’s dresses with thorough speed. Particular care is taken with dress shirts, which are prespotted, checked for any damaged buttons, and treated with special additives to remove body oils. The cleaners also keep home furnishings spiffy by performing rug and comforter cleaning. Alternatively, by cleaning leather, staffers ensure that audiences don’t get distracted by mustardy dots during Fonzie impressions. The staff also helps nuptial memories last longer than nuptial cake by cleaning, preserving, and boxing wedding dresses, which Tropical Cleaners double boxes to ensure that moisture cannot damage the precious fabric. Unlike those who sell dirt to pro baseball teams, Tropical Cleaners is a member of the National Cleaners Association.
Extreme Steam's licensed and insured technicians smarten up carpets using IICR-approved steam-cleaning processes. Uniformed cleaners arrive at households, where a high-powered, truck-mounted steam cleaner blasts scalding water to purify fibers. Once carpets are cleansed, technicians carefully groom threads, leaving indoor runways looking clean and neat in 30–60 minutes. Most carpets dry within three hours without leaving behind soapy residue, allowing customers to dance across floors without dampening their socks or damaging their mink hiking boots. The professionals can also clean sullied upholstery and carpets in boats and cars or de-gunk tile and grout.
