Portage Cleaners & Laundry owner Shirley Winterburn shares her 37 years of experience with her staff as they spiff up wardrobes with eco-friendly GreenEarth Cleaning solvents, which render colors brighter and fabrics softer. The shop's dry-cleaning experts scrub stains out of casual clothing and business wear with an especially delicate handling of silk shirts and sport coats made out of eyelashes. Visitors can bring in their duds for professional laundering services, or take on the garment-cleansing endeavor themselves by feeding their soiled linens to more than 100 washers and dryers. The staff also complimentarily performs minor repairs such as quick hemming or replacing lost buttons. Portage cleaners offers free pick-up and delivery to homes and offices in the Kalamazoo and Portage areas, and same-day service is available on weekdays.

When Linda and Brian Sayre started Sayre Carpet Care, their goal was not to be the biggest cleaning company, or the cleaning company that uses the flashiest giant squirt guns, but, instead, to be the highest quality cleaning company. Today, Sayre Carpet Care dependably purges carpets of accumulated dust, dirt, and stains, engendering customers’ trust by expertly revitalizing homes. Linda takes orders and runs the books while Brian heads a staff of IICRC-certified technicians. Once teams arrive at a home, the powerful engine of a truck-mounted Hydramaster machine heats and pressurizes water, which is then fired into carpet fibers along with a specially treated cleaning solution. The water is then extracted, pulling with it any trapped dirt, stains, and allergens while softening carpet fibers and extending their lifespan. Brian and Linda can also lend their staff’s cleaning talents to tile and grout, as well as the carpeting of cars, RVs, and boats.
