The technicians and cutting-edge technology that make up the Spotless Floor Care team are licensed and insured to scour carpets and upholstery with eco-friendly, nontoxic cleaners. Their machines first apply an eco-friendly cleaning agent, which is filled with colloidal silver to help annihilate germs and bacteria and prevent them from rapidly regrowing on carpets. The machine then scrubs the carpet fibers on all sides with hyper agitation without damaging the carpet fibers, and with applied physics extraction gets floors cleaner than a steamer, removing up to 25% more contamination than truck-mounted steam cleaning systems. Spotless Floor Care's green cleaning system leaves carpets dry in about an hour.
Though Jeff Kline had a comfortable job as an aerospace engineer, he had a hunch that he possessed all the traits of a successful small-business owner. With the support of his wife Tanya, he put his theory to the test with a Lapels Dry Cleaning franchise, which has quickly spawned multiple locations.
The Klines remain ever-present behind the counter at Lapels, overseeing 24-hour drop-off services, same-day dry-cleaning turnaround, and sundry garment-cleaning services. Lapels' dry-cleaning process uses an environmentally friendly solvent that breaks down naturally, like Mike Tyson watching cat videos. In addition to cleaning garments, the staff performs alterations, preserves wedding gowns, and cleans leather and suede.
Since 1988, the deal-hunters at Dry Clean Super Saver (Arizona) have connected customers with a trustworthy network of dry-cleaning and automotive-repair technicians.

The association of participating cleaners and garages stretches across the country, ensuring that cardholders can remove stains from a dress shirt or change an oil filter wherever they happen to be.
AZ Window Washers sends experienced technicians to perform large and small exterior-maintenance jobs. With a manager onsite for every project, they clean gutters, power wash decks and houses, and wash windows. They also clean miscellaneous objects, such as light fixtures, patio furniture, grills, and ceiling fans, and offer bird-proofing services.
Though Dirt Done Cheap’s team spend most of their time removing stains and dirt, they also work to give something back. The company gives 10 percent of their monthly profits to local charities including the Boys and Girls Club, breast-cancer-awareness funds, the American Legion, and the Children’s Leukemia Foundation. To fund these philanthropic efforts, they have mastered the art of carpet and upholstery cleaning and stain treatment, as well as tile and grout cleaning. For carpets, they complete a process with up to nine steps, including pretreatment, steam cleaning, and a deodorizer. When dealing with tile, their truck-mounted system shoots steam heated to 230 degrees deep into floors, an effective way to loosen dirt or cook the dry pasta that is everywhere after most parties.
