Carolina native Robert Furr developed his razor-sharp attention to detail as a soldier in the US Army Reserve. Now he fights a battle against grime with a 4,000 psi, commercial-grade pressure washer. The high-grade injection system functions in unison with a 125-gallon water tank and a series of long, aluminum extensions, allowing Robert to access building façades and the muddy knees of grateful giants. A Plus Power Wash is also fully insured and licensed to expunge grime from concrete patios, wooden decks, and in-ground pools.
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.
