Let someone else do your dirty work with today's Groupon: $30 for three hours of home cleaning from the meticulous staff at DiCi Services. No nook, cranny, or ceiling-fan blade is safe from their eagle eye (their left one), copious supply of elbow grease, and arsenal of professional-grade supplies (if you prefer they use your supplies, just let them know). Each clean sweep is customized, meaning a walk-through of the area to be cleaned is required prior to an appointment so that your expectations match the outcome. This Groupon expires at the end of March, so do your spring-cleaning before spring actually comes, or get your place ready for the holidays.Follow @Groupon_Says on Twitter.
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.

After traveling to cities outside of Charlotte, earth enthusiasts Fiona and Marley began envying the other towns' stockpiles of eco-friendly stores. Back home, they could always buy green products on the web, but since they had no opportunity to sample or even look at them before delivery, they were frequently disappointed with their purchases. They decided to take matters into their own hands in January 2011 by establishing ecolicious—a one-stop market for vegan and eco-friendly wares.
Each item at ecolicious bears a product tab with a review by staff members, who personally test the goods they shelve. Jewelry crafted by local artisans hangs near vintage clothing, raw snacks, and cleaning supplies made from humanely harvested soap bubbles. Within the store's bright blue walls, Community Supported Agriculture members can also pick up their seasonal shipments of local produce.
The licensed and insured cleaners at Make Ready Matt's Cleaning service are so confident in their work that they offer free recleanings for dissatisfied customers who voice their concerns within 24 hours. Their confidence comes from the fact that they’ve got cleaning down to a science, relying on a detailed checklist to perform basic and deep cleanings. Basic cleanings center around the kitchen, where cleaners remove stains from stovetops, wipe the front and top of refrigerators, and clean the insides and exteriors of microwaves. In deeper, detailed cleaning services, they evict dust from baseboards, windowsills, and light fixtures. Aware of the popularity of stainless steel fixtures, children, and countertops in modern homes, they have developed their own technique to leave those surfaces sparkling.
