Let someone else do your dirty work with today's Groupon: $30 for three hours of home cleaning from the meticulous staff at DiCi Services. No nook, cranny, or ceiling-fan blade is safe from their eagle eye (their left one), copious supply of elbow grease, and arsenal of professional-grade supplies (if you prefer they use your supplies, just let them know). Each clean sweep is customized, meaning a walk-through of the area to be cleaned is required prior to an appointment so that your expectations match the outcome. This Groupon expires at the end of March, so do your spring-cleaning before spring actually comes, or get your place ready for the holidays.Follow @Groupon_Says on Twitter.
The professional floorsmiths at If It’s Carpet employ well-honed expertise to bedeck bare floors with stylish floor coverings. Reward ever-faithful housebottoms for being trampled underfoot with a fine coat of hardwood, or clothe modest foundations with a handsome coat of carpet. For home stewards that can’t choose between indoor-landscaping schemes, friendly carpeting connoisseurs offer recommendations and help customers examine the weft of carpeting samples from companies such as Bliss, Woolshire, Robertex, and Barrett. Although pricing for flooring and carpet installation varies from house to house, hardwood installation starts at $5 per square foot, carpet setting starts at roughly $10 per yard, and turning the floor into a trampoline requires a promise to let the installers jump on it every other Tuesday.

In addition to Seventh Generation and Ecover solutions, staffers freshen up living or office spaces with tried-and-true ingredients such as baking soda and lemon juice, and add fragrant essential oils for their natural cleansing properties.
