The certified technicians of HydroClean pamper floorscapes with grime-evicting baths using nontoxic cleaners and the signature Containing Dome device that blasts away dirt. After applying a cleaning solution to lift embedded grime, the techs direct intense streams of heated water on the troubled spots, while the Containing Dome vacuum extracts moisture at 5 gallons per minute. Surfaces sigh as the powerful suction passes over, leaving the brick, tile, stone or ceramic nearly dry. Technicians also turn the sudsy cleaner on textile forests, cleaning carpets and upholstery with reinvigorating steam that frees fibers of harmful mold and sold-out flea circuses.
During the home- or apartment-cleaning services, insured and bonded cleaning crews from Klean & Tidy Inc., which has been in the cleaning business since 1983, deploy across living spaces to wash floors by hand.

After sloughing grime from corners and tidying living spaces with basic organization, they then wipe-down countertops and faucets until they achieve a gleam typically reserved for Zeus’s money clip.

In 2011, Rachel and Deha gave up their professional careers and founded Cousins Custom Cleaning with the goal of tailoring meticulous, reliable cleaning and organizing services to meet each of their customer’s needs. Cousins’ bonded, licensed, and insured cleaners scrub floors by hand, eschewing mops, which can spread dirt or duplicate uncontrollably and form an army without the care of an experienced sorcerer's apprentice. Customers can ask the cleaning duo to make their homes or offices shine with eco-friendly and allergy-friendly products, and residential customers can choose between an hourly rate for a one-time appointment and a flat rate for recurring services. Committed to giving back to their community, Rachel and Deha support the American Cancer Society and offer special discounts to cancer survivors and customers caring for people with special needs.
