To keep your family safe and Mother Earth happy, The Cleaning Authority rejuvenates residences using only Green Seal Certified® chemicals and microfiber dusting cloths—products preferred by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. During your house's hour of freshening, a professional will dust, spray, scrub, wipe, and mop as many sullied surfaces as possible, freeing you to spend quality time with your family, run errands, or take care of some overdue outdoor chores. Customers may combine up to three Groupons to extend the cleaning service, or the three Groupons can be used singly during separate visits. Though The Cleaning Authority's team works fast to freshen as much as possible in a short amount of time, it generally requires three hours to thoroughly clean a home with four bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. Call ahead to schedule your service.

The Tile Shop—as the name coyly suggests—specializes in tile for every imaginable surface and aesthetic style, making it easy for DIY handypeople to tackle small home projects, such as modernizing an avocado-green and penicillin-pink bathroom floor or re-grouting a small garden grotto. Underscore a kitchen with the appetizing orange of pirita siena ceramic tiles ($2.19 per square foot), then trim the counters in lizett beige ($3.99 each) for a complementary finish. Pick up a honeycomb pattern of hex matte black ($5.29 per square foot)—the quintessential backsplash for a gothy bumblebee—or add a touch of character to a small surface with a deep green verde butterfly mosaic ($11.99 per square foot). With its enormous selection of floor tiles, wall tiles, mosaics, and natural stone, the possibilities are as endless as a drive across Nebraska. The Tile Shop also has a plentiful selection of grout and tools for grouting it all together while grinning groutishly.
The Painting Pros’ licensed and insured paint technicians coat the walls of one room with the patron’s choice of a new eye-nabbing hue. After locating the selected space in their bristle crosshairs, color technicians waste no time preparing walls for the looming paint monsoon. The Painting Pros fill in nail holes and prime especially pesky spots for the overcoat, and they remove outlet and light-switch covers from their cozy mountings to increase stain-swathing efficiency. To avoid mishaps, large furniture scuttles to the center of the room cloaked in protective plastic, and a miniature poncho safeguards pet elves from excess paint splatters. Once clients hand over their chosen pigment to the paint gurus, a blitz of brushing and rolling feverishly coats the room with a new hue. As the paint dries, the technicians return outlet casings and furniture back to their prior habitats and cherished paintings of Smoky the Bear back to their rightful place above the fireplace. The Painting Pros guarantee the quality of their brush strokes for three years following each job.
Since 1978, the friendly cleaners at Fish Window Cleaning have shined the windows and flushed the gutters of more than 100,000 residential and commercial clients nationwide, earning one of the Franchise Business Review’s 2011 Franchisee Satisfaction Awards. Expert window and gutter washers materialize at clients’ homes, businesses, or recreational submarines to spruce up besmirched panes or leaf-riddled rain spouts. Dirt abolishers scrub eager glass inside and out before wiping down windowsills (a $4/pane average cost), and rout out drainage-system debris ($125/gutter), leaving gutters as unobstructed as a swimming pool during adult swim in the winter. To keep rooms gleaming under the sparkling light of chandeliers, speck scrubbers rid ceilings' most prized fixtures of dust, grime, and shadow residue ($60).
