Since 2002, Men In Kilts' tartan-clad cleaners have employed environmentally friendly cleaning products and Scottish hosiery to wash windowpanes and clear crud-choked gutters. Bedecked in traditional Gaelic leg blankets, Men In Kilts' window cleaners ensure that interior and exterior windows are deep cleaned by hand. For $125, they can clean approximately 20 exterior windows on a single-level home or about 15 windows on a two-level home, and there is no additional charge to remove and wipe down screens and frames. For a more mechanized approach, Men In Kilts utilizes deionized and purified water during water-fed window cleanings to bathe bungalow eyeglasses in a streak-free clean.
Mark Wagner has been working under the hood of international automobiles since 1972. After securing a master's degree in mechanical engineering in Germany, Wagner ferried both his family and his familiarity with foreign cars to America, where, today, he teams up with the ASE-certified techs in his repair shop. The factory-trained mechanics dole out everything from tune-ups to engine, brake, and transmission repairs. And all of their work is backed by a 15-month, 15,000-mile warranty that prevents cars from worrying about waking up and seeing their name in the classified pages.
ASK Duct Services' central-air centurions do battle with indoor air pollutants by performing thorough duct cleansings. With today's deal, ASK Duct Services will clear out up to nine registers and one return. After a complete inspection of a home's entire system, technicians cut a small access hole near the furnace to insert a 10" hose. This hungry hose is run up and down each duct and attached to a powerful vacuum, which will dislodge and then slurp up debris via high-pressure blasts from an air compressor. After technicians are done, all access holes will be resealed so that thoroughfares remain airtight, like well-burped Tupperware.
The stain-eliminating staff at Aloha Cleaners eschews the harsh chemicals of conventional dry cleaning to extricate grime and stains from clothing and fabrics in a nontoxic manner. Every soiled blouse ($9.95), slept-in sock ($2.50/lb.), or anthropomorphic pair of slacks ($9.95) that wanders through the door tastes a helping of “green” nontoxic hydrocarbon dry-cleaning agent that gently sloughs away stains to render garments as fragrant as rose water distilled from angel's wings. Other items that can awaken from their crud comas include comforters ($30–$50), overcoats ($20.95), and tablecloths ($30). The courteous cleaners at Aloha generally finish orders by the next day, though same-day service is available. A free pickup and delivery service for all locations saves patrons the trouble of navigating the city's maze of municipal garden mazes, with a staff member whisking away and returning laundry to home doors.
A lot of carpet-cleaning businesses offer some sort of guarantee, but Complete Carpet Care offers no fewer than five. Beyond the basic 100% guarantee for service, the company stands behind its eight-step organic carpet-cleaning process and vows to refund the customer’s money if it fails to live up to the hype. When it comes to spots, any marks or traffic lanes removed by the techs are guaranteed to stay gone, and those who opt to add Complete Carpet Care’s Teflon protector can rest assured that the protector is guaranteed to repel new permanent stains for a year. And, once carpets have been thoroughly degunked, they’re protected from accidental spills for seven days postcleaning––within a week of service, the techs will return to retouch their work free of charge and with no questions asked, no matter how many red-wine-soaked piñatas happen to be lying around.
In a truck-mounted steam cleaning system, Complete Carpet Care uses all organic solutions, made from ingredients such as lime and grapefruit seed extract, natural enzymes, and cider vinegar, in contrast to traditional cleaners, which use harsh chemicals such as silicones, linear alcohol, and borine. The crew uses a similar technique when cleaning upholstery and area rugs, ensuring all surfaces are cleaned without leaving behind harmful residue.
