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.
Magic Bubbles' technicians arrive at locations equipped with cleaning supplies that transform dusty cars into sparkling rides and smudged windows into streak-free panes of glass. During auto-detailing services, adroit hands clear away surface dirt, clarify grimy windshields, and treat tires, erasing all evidence of late nights spent doing donuts through the governor's rose bushes. Technicians lavish exotic and luxury cars with specially formulated waxes, and can spruce up pavement with nonabrasive cleaners and sealant. Magic Bubbles' techs can even wash home windows and pressure-clean siding, roofs, and patios to remove mildew, rust, and mold.
