When Susan Cantone took over her brother’s carpet-cleaning business in 2003, she dubbed it Cantone II Carpet Cleaning to signify a new beginning. Her daughter, office manager Sonia, has been busy ever since, scheduling appointments for the two-man carpet-cleaning crew, which ousts stains with a rotary machine and dry-foam cleaner. This dry foam penetrates carpet down to the padding to lift stains, and the machine inhales vast amounts of debris and dirt before looking to the side and coughing politely.
Carpets dry in less than two hours, compared to the four hours it takes after steam extraction and the day and a half it takes after soaking rugs in dishwasher detergent. The machine also scours tile and grout, purifies upholstery, and strips and waxes floors.
Cleaning crews at Izz the Wiz Cleaning Services channel sudsy sorcery to liberate residential spaces from the shackles of gunk and grime. The outfit's arsenal of services purges and sanitizes interior areas, such as bathrooms, bedrooms, and kitchens. The team also turns its attention downward during floor-buffing and carpet-cleaning sessions, or mobilizes outside, where debris is scooped from gutters and postconstruction remnants are hauled away. Homeowners can opt for rounds of pressure washing to blast dirt and mildew from exterior façades, making sullied houses appear new and ticklish houses giggle with delight as eco-friendly detergents stream across their surfaces.
Heaven's Best will cleanse chambers of blotches from baseboard to baseboard under the sure-handed care of unstoppable stain eliminators sent from the future to eliminate lurking dirt. Living humans with muddy mansions, fouled flats, or carpeted caves receive appointments scheduled for a specific time, leaving customers free to better spend their time observing plants to make sure they produce oxygen instead of voice-altering noble gases. Treatments start with a dry vacuuming to clear planes of loose debris before using a mild cleaning solution to release stains locked onto fibrous strands. The floor-flushing machinery then removes the liberated loam with a low-moisture method that allows carpets to dry in an hour. To boost confidence and cleanliness, each cleaning comes with a guarantee that any spots removed won't show their faces again for at least 30 days.
While not trafficking in wands or wizardry, the technicians at Abracadabra Detail & Renewal Service manage to make each auto’s stains and scratches magically disappear. The mobile detailing unit uses high-quality chemicals and a water-reclamation tank to prevent dirty water and chemicals from entering storm drains. Technicians also harness an air-cell cleaning formula that uses a microscopically thin layer of cleaning solution to clean deep into upholstery and trap dirt particles.
Over time, carpets can grow dingy with dirt, stains, dust mites, and miniaturized scientists. That’s why Pristine Carpet & Tile’s insured techs keep shag spotless with their specialty cleaning services. Their secret weapon is the Rotovac 360i, a rotary powerhouse with three vacuum heads that spin at 1,500 passes per minute. Clients may also solicit the company for house painting, gutter cleaning, and home pressure washing.
Owner Maria Cruz attributes the success of her business to her dependable team, about whom she says, "I would trust them with a set of keys to my own house . . . I trust them wholeheartedly."
It would be hard not to, as the foreman of her carpet-cleaning crew, Joe, brings 10 years of experience to his work, and her housecleaning field supervisor, Patricia, brings more than 20 years. "I just could not do this without them," she emphasizes, citing Joe's talent for extracting red candle wax from a light-blue berber carpet, and Patricia's dedication to the checklist Maria created to ensure consistency in cleaning sessions.
Both cleaning teams are licensed, bonded, and insured, as well as thoroughly background checked to ensure that no one has a second job as a mud wrestler. The carpet cleaners purge dirt and debris from carpets with a steam-extraction system and stay well-versed in chemical concoctions to remove extra-tough stains. The housecleaners arrive at homes armed with commercial-grade supplies that will sanitize every surface they touch, plus eco-friendly products if the client desires. The cleaning checklist can be customized to satisfy individual requests.
