Persistent ear infections were once a big problem for Lewis, VioClean owner Trung Nguyen's dog. Despite following the vet's advice, Lewis's eardrum blew out—a complication that led to a surgery with no explanation for the cause. At first, it didn't occur to Trung that the cause could be related to his carpets. After all, he worked for a carpet-cleaning company while in college, cleaned his own carpets regularly, and flossed them every night before bed. What could the explanation be?
Eventually, Trung looked to the environment inside his house for the answers, which led him to seek out natural cleaning products. Soon after making that change, he was inspired to leave his accounting career and start a carpet cleaning company using only non-toxic products. Now he and his techs offer cleaning services that range from floor cleaning to indoor environmental testing and mold remediation. Their Green Seal-certified products don't leave sticky residue behind, dry quickly, and are safe for children and pets.

Dream Carpets owner Chris Augusto leads a team of dirt fighters ready to wage battle against soiled floors and upholstery. Carpet-cleaning packages ($39.95–$69.95/room) utilize soap-free cleansers and vary in price based on extras such as speed drying, basic deodorizing, and exorcism. Kitchen tile gleams like 100 porcelain suns after a thorough de-griming ($139+ for average kitchen), and the standard sofa weighs a full pound less after the clean team sucks up pollen and dust mites embedded in its upholstery ($85+). The online estimate calculator helps anticipate project costs and predict babies' genders.
Longo Carpet Cleaning and Restoration's certified technicians keep floors grime-free with a variety of carpet-sanctifying services. Longo's dirt demolishers pick up litter from foot expressways using a 12-step carpet-cleaning process, which includes a baseboard cleaning, hot-water extraction, and speed-drying interpretive dance. After the carpet is purged, a carpet protectant—accompanied by a one-year stain warranty—is applied. The technicians will move smaller furniture to maximize cleaning space, but not larger items such as entertainment centers, grand pianos, or life-sized Andre the Giant replicas.
