"A Mother's Touch" Cleaning Service was opened in 2003 by a mother and son who believed in keeping homes and their surrounding environments pristine. To this end, the company utilizes nontoxic, hypoallergenic, Green Seal–certified cleaning products by Shaklee. These gentle yet effective products fuel the team's cleaning sessions, which often also entail extensive use of Dyson vacuums armed with allegen-busting HEPA filters. Item by item, the cleaning crew plows through a detailed checklist that covers all essential elements, from the lip of the sink to the chin of the man who's been crashing on the couch for what seems like weeks. :
Mills Cleaners' garment gurus spruce up casual clothes and formalwear with services that range from dry cleaning to wash-and-fold laundering. They use in-house dry-cleaning equipment to purify clothing of all shapes and sizes, from petite women’s dresses to the Statue of Liberty’s Hawaiian shirt collection. They ensure down comforters and sleeping bags emerge soft and fluffy, and that bomber jackets look like new after a leather-cleaning service. The team also preserves wedding gowns for future generations.
MaidPro specializes in whipping grimy households into gleaming shape.

When Nina Emory lost her job more than 10 years ago, she vowed never to work for someone else again. So, drawing on a background in business management, she found a bucket, bought a few cleaning supplies, and set to work building her own business. Now, she employs a full crew of bonded and insured cleaners who have served more than 500 clients under the name of A Diamond in the Rough Cleaning Service.
Just as polishing can reveal a diamond's sparkle, the technicians' customized cleanings aim to reveal a space's distinct personality. For residential and commercial cleanings, they carefully employ nontoxic cleaners, as well as cloths, mops, and dusters that are sanitized before storage to avoid cross-contamination. Clients can also solicit a tech for a gutter or window cleaning.
The Reliable Power Washing Guy wields powerful pressure washers that remove deep-set dirt and mold from vinyl siding, brick, roofs, and concrete. Its technicians apply a safe amount of pressure through to prevent damage to homes and mix the water with wet wax to keep homes clean longer. Expanding their cleaning to the whole house, techs can also restore wooden decks with pressure washers and contractor-grade sealers.
It’s not uncommon for people to remove dirt their carpets only to leave an equally obnoxious residue from the cleaner they’ve used. To avoid this, Sears Carpet and Upholstery Care uses a two-step process: first, a solution loosens grime from soft surfaces; then, an extraction paired with a heated pH-balancing steam rinse flushes out any trace of the cleanser. Sears’ technicians can also handle hard surfaces.
