The technicians from TM Carpet and Air Duct Cleaning routinely clean carpets, wax tile floors, and clear dryer vents and air ducts of debris, helping keep homes welcoming to both owners and visitors. Using a low-moisture, truck-mounted, steam-cleaning system, the staff revitalizes stained and dirty carpets with biodegradable cleaning products that easily decompose in the earth and sometimes form cool dinosaur fossils. For tile floors, technicians apply glossy layers of protective polymer-based wax.
Benjamin Surdi worked in the carpet cleaning industry for 24 years before he opened Pure Clean in 2008. His goal: to address the biggest issues customers had with conventional carpet cleaning, issues such as returning stains, dry time, and leftover residue. Years of development went into creating Pure Clean and its carpet cleaning system, which eschews all detergents and tooth-whitening mouthwashes. The system uses ElectroWater, an ionically charged and super-purified water, so it's effective to deep-clean carpets, yet still safe enough to drink. The company's 12-step carpet cleaning process begins with pre-inspection and pre-treatment to loosen stains and soil, as well as stain guard and grooming. After being blasted with ElectroWater by a 350 horsepower engine, the carpeting is turbo-dried in about three hours. The Green Seal-certified, hypoallergenic system also cleans tile and upholstery.
ProClean Cleaning Services keeps interior airspaces free from allergens, dust, and pollution with air-duct and chimney cleaning for homes and businesses. Ventilation specialists scrub dust and residue from dryer vents, flues, and air-conditioning ducts and install electrostatic filters that block debris without the need for replacements or filter changes.
LaVonte Elegan may have a master's degree in business, but he isn't afraid to get his hands dirty for the sake of a clean carpet. Working alongside his wife, Breanne, LaVonte leads a staff of experienced technicians who attend courses and seminars to stay abreast of the latest cleaning tools and techniques. Their cleaning process starts with a HEPA vacuum to remove dry dirt particles before launching into a meticulous step-by-step regimen that extracts ground-in soil. LaVonte's techs then scour fibers with pet-safe products and a Rotovac machine, which cleans at speeds up to 250 revolutions per minute, leaving it about 20 times drier than cleaning it with a manual scrub wand or teasing it until it cries. Beyond carpet, the crew members at Glow Professional Home Cleaning Services also aim their green cleaning products and hot-water-extraction equipment at stains residing in tile and grout or upholstery.
The secret behind Five Star Chem-Dry's carpet-cleaning services is carbonation. Expert technicians use a green, non-toxic cleanser to blast bubbles of air into the fibers of the rug, and the effervescence lifts away dirt as it fizzes to the surface, where it is flushed away through hot-water extraction. Because the trick is to use air, Chem-Dry uses less water than conventional carpet cleaners, does not leave a residue, and helps keep carpets clean longer. Carpets dry in one to three hours, and Five-Star Chem-Dry will also apply protectant sheilds or use gentle cleaning products upon request.
Green Hat Home Services has a deep commitment to ecological sustainability—one that extends far beyond the use of Biokleen eco-friendly products. Every decision that the company makes is done with the environment in mind, from the choice of transportation and tools to the in-office processes, which are completely paperless.
This attentiveness also extends to the services themselves. Every home-cleaning crew is composed of at least three insured technicians, one of who is the lead technician. To help build trust, Green Hat tries to send the same lead technician out to a client's home every time. And to ensure the crews are on top of the latest industry advances, all the technicians must undergo 40 hours of continuing-education training every year.
