Founded more than 30 years ago by Gail Kelce, Kelce and Company has grown from a one-woman business to a 35-person-strong staff dedicated to rendering outstanding residential and commercial cleaning services. During carpet-refreshing sessions, teams of insured cleaners operate a powerful truck-mounted steam-cleaning system to abrogate dirt and stains. Area rug cleaning is another coefficient in the business’s service equation, and it includes both pickup and drop off. Elsewhere, the company’s spectrum spans from the large-scale whole-house cleaning to the inconceivably small-scale scrub-downs of subatomic particles. On top of traditional domicile work, Kelce and Company also specializes in a range of restoration services, from vandalism removal to emergency water, fire, and flood cleanup.
Licensed, bonded, and insured, the employees at Cherry Valley Wood Care are both trustworthy and specialized. From wood decks to wood fences and wood gazebos and wood siding, Cherry Valley crews make all types of wood look as new as the day they were felled by beavers in lumberjack hats. Staining services give furniture, patios, and cabinets new life, and sealing helps to protect wood from the harsh Midwestern elements. Armed with high-powered equipment, the staff also power washes homes, siding, and concrete.
In 1924, George Gershwin wrote Rhapsody In Blue, the first round-the-world-flight took 175 days, and the Harry F. Carlson Company cleaned its first window. Today, music might be louder and planes might be faster, but the technicians at Carlson still offer the same commercial cleaning and residential window services that earned them business all those years ago. That's not to say they haven't adapted with the time, though. Armed with environmentally-conscious cleaners and high-tech equipment, technicians bust dirt in offices, factories, and commercials spaces 24 hours a day. That same gear also helps them keep residential windows shining without streaks or spots.

The certified technicians at Aaron Auto Glass help cars with cars—they have more than 30 vehicles in their mobile fleet, allowing them to travel to clients whose windshields or windows are in need of repair. Once at the scene, they assess the problem and install fresh glass, or patch up chips with high-quality resin. Of course, they perform the same services at their five Chicagoland locations as well. Their impressive stock of vehicle glass all adheres to National Transportation and Safety Board standards, and can replace cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged glass with both new and used sheets. Most procedures even have a same-day turnaround, preventing drivers from simply switching their shattered windshield with a screen door.
