Window Genie’s scum-busters arrive to each job in a clearly marked chariot armed with the necessary equipment to tackle exterior household dust and decay. Pane pamperers kick off a window cleaning for homes up to two stories by scraping off tree sap, bird droppings, and other hard-to-clean debris with a specially designed blade that moonlights as a shiv stunt double in prison movies. Then, they’ll suds up sills to wipe away dust and accumulated grime, and they'll scrub soiled screens for an extra fee ($1 each). An exterior-only clean endows fixed-plate windows ($2.75 each), double-hung windows ($4.50 each), and triple-track storm windows ($12 each) with enough sparkle to make diamond-encrusted neighbors jealous. Or, homeowners can opt for an interior-exterior cleaning, and careful cleaners will shed shoes before entering abodes to avoid leaving footprints on carpet ($5–$18/window).
Softside Trim, Inc. turns vintage, new, and exotic automobiles into masterpieces on four wheels by performing upholstery touch-ups, leather and trim work, and interior and exterior restorations.

In addition to glitzing up the interiors of precious automobiles, Softside Trim protects passengers from harsh UV rays with window tinting, and exteriors from bug swarms with Scotchgard paint coating.
Though Eli Rouimi represents his family’s third generation in the garment-care industry, his current operation of One Stop Cleaners involves much more than traditional dry cleaning. Beyond dry or wet laundering of clothing and household items—which can be acquired through free pickup and delivery services—Eli and his team also come onsite to homes or climb aboard yachts and private jets to sanitize carpet, tile, mattresses, upholstery, and disheveled stowaways. Back at the store, the staff tinkers over shoe repairs and the preservation of both bridal gowns and bouquets, the latter of which can be freeze-dried and encased in specialty framing.
