The cleaning specialists of Lana's Affordable Cleaning work best alone. Their eyes seek out dust and grime before sweeping and mopping floors, washing interior windows, and sanitizing bathrooms. Clients can have the cleaning crews perform other sanitizing services, targeting areas that are often overlooked, including ceiling fans, blinds, and areas around that family that hasn’t left since last month's dinner party.
On Saturday, May 5, and Sunday, May 6, a sea of vendors and spa technicians transform the Lane Events Center into an escape for women of all ages. The Just for Women Expo's two days of sensory indulgence and shopping benefit visitors twice over, as 50% of ticket-sale profits are donated to organizations dedicated to women's health. This year, comedienne, stress-management expert, and author Leigh Anne Jasheway sets the expo's tone with a keynote speech and by filtering the audience's laughter through auto-tune, which then harmonizes with a number of personal-enrichment seminars. Winetasting and fashion shows punctuate hours of bargain hunting, and raffle tickets given to each guest offer a chance to win a Girlfriends Getaway for four.
Girls Night Out caps Saturday's events with four hours of catered spa pampering and revelry for those 21 and older. Gentlemen servers swing past makeover stations carrying trays of hors d'oeuvres, and 15-minute massages and bites from a chocolate buffet revive guests after belly-dance lessons. Guests to this event also take home goodies and enjoy two free drinks apiece to toast their superior toasting skills.
Eco Clean Northwest doesn't need harsh chemicals to sanitize a home's soiled surfaces. Instead, the techs employ Earth-friendly products that cut grime on hardwood floors, tile, and carpets without damaging the surfaces or harming the family members that eat off of them. They customize their services for each individual carpeting, clearing dirt and stains with low-moisture cleaning or hot-water extraction, depending on the carpets' needs. And they do more than clean: They also offer advice on how to keep carpets fresh and provide pest-control services that reduce or eradicate unwanted populations of bees, termites, and ants.
PDX Carpet Cleaning keeps carpets in mint condition with a multistep cleaning process. First, they vacuum carpets and treat them with an ecofriendly solution that's safe for humans and pets. Then, they steam clean the fibers, which extracts grime without leaving behind a soapy residue. In addition to carpets, they deep clean hardwood floors, tile floors, decks, and other surfaces with custom techniques.
For the teams from MaidPerfectPDX, cleaning a home doesn't simply mean wiping away all of the dust and grime. It also means finishing the job by using as many eco-friendly products as possible. Occasionally, the staff members even make their own cleaning solutions using the same method Cinderella used to make her perfume: by mixing a base of pure water and vinegar and adding a splash of essential oils?such as lavender, vanilla, or almond?for fragrance. Armed with these hypoallergenic, family-friendly products, they thoroughly scour nooks and crannies throughout the home. The teams can dust reachable surfaces, scrub kitchen sinks, vacuum rugs, and wipe down mirrors, leaving abodes spotless without ever having to resort to toxic chemicals.
