Letting strangers into one’s home to clean around valued possessions can be nerve-wracking, which is why Shelby Seck is always happy to point out her pedigree. A resident of Overland Park, she has built her cleaning business through happy customers and word of mouth over the last 24 years, ensuring repeat business with her thorough technique. Her cleaners come prepped to deal with every room in the house by equipping themselves with biodegradable cleaning products. This means they are kind to materials while not irritating pets or children. Shelby's team can even divide their man hours, so one cleaner can come for an hour, two cleaners can come for half an hour, or a million cleaners can show up to make the floor cave in and utterly destroy an orange juice spill.
Green Team owner Chris Deulen is currently converting all his vehicles to run on spent vegetable oil from local restaurants––just one of many steps his window-cleaning company is taking toward environmental responsibility. Each day, the fully licensed technicians employ organic and recycled towels, as well as biodegradable and eco-friendly soap to rid glass windows of streaks and smudges and save screens and tracks from oxidation. Beyond protecting the environment from harmful chemicals, they also help sustain the health of home roofs with gutter-cleaning services, happily scaling ladders to pull out leaves, twigs, watermelons, and other common clogs.
Since 1957, Reddi Services’ EPA-certified contractors have held a high standard of maintaining air-conditioning and plumbing systems, working to proactively prevent minor malfunctions from spiraling into emergencies. Should emergencies arise, however, their 24-hour emergency line can dispatch staffers to minimize the damage from floods or overheating. Highly trained technicians also resolve less pressing issues by clearing gunk from pipes, repairing septic tanks, and ensuring that air conditioners keep inhabitants cool without spewing out flavorless popsicles.
The friendly folks at Weldon Cleaners have pursued aqua-free cleaning since 1982 and have been using environmentally friendly GreenEarth products since 2002. GreenEarth's cleaning products replace traditional petroleum-based solvents with liquid silicone, a gentle solution made from sand that has been ground down over millennia by sea urchin sand grinders in Mother Earth's very own sand factory. Rather than attack your garments with harsh petroleum-based products, Weldon will ensure your blouses, slacks, sweaters, sport coats, and skirts are begged their pardon and cleaned as gently as possible (at $6.50 per garment). Rush off to a job interview or business potluck in a freshly pressed, odor-free two-piece suit or dress ($13). Weldon's coat- cleaning service will help you finally eliminate the squash remains that accumulated on your lapel during last year's Great Pumpkin séance (starting at $12).
For the team at Superior Cleaning, revamping and cleansing a home requires nothing more than a simple checklist, which details a different set of tasks for each room of the house. The list also allows the team to bring rooms back to a neat state, from scouring appliances and countertops in the kitchen to catching every last dust bunny in the forest of carpet fibers.
