Since establishing her company, House Cleaning by Lolita, in 1986, the eponymous Lolita has uncovered a major truth: whether an average American citizen or high-profile senator, everyone gets dirty countertops. That's why Lolita and her team travel throughout the DC Metro area, scouring residences with six levels of home cleaning. Beginning with the basic dusting and mopping, cleanings progress into more detail-oriented tasks such as deep bathroom and kitchen sanitizing, or cleaning of window-blinds and chandeliers. The staff also wields a Diva of Clean steam-cleaning system, which extracts dirt from carpets and upholstery, disinfecting as it restores the fabric's natural sheen and leaving it tender enough to serve with red sauce and crusty bread.
What began as a one-person startup in Prince Georges county has grown into a 24/7 operation of three impeccably trained pressure-washers and structural cleaners, traveling throughout the Maryland, Northern Virginia, and DC areas to render homes and businesses spotless. ETB Solutions' technicians tackle an enormous range of cleanup and maintenance services, from cleaning carpets and upholstery, to power-washing homes and flushing out air ducts with eco- and pet-friendly products. And the techs can customize regular service programs to fit each home and budget, with scheduled cleanings each day, week, month, or in-law visit. The cleaners also connect with insurers to clean up after disasters such as floods and septic back-ups, and work hand-in-hand with builders during construction projects to ensure buildings are free from mold.
For more than 15 years, the techs behind Express Super Dry have been revivifying carpets and upholstery with a patented carbonated solution that uses less water than steam-cleaning techniques. This in turn avoids the soapy residues and soggy rugs that attract dirt, mildew, and mold. Their nontoxic cleaning solution also subdues pet odors and prevents stains from reappearing. When techs finish purifying fibers, they advise owners to let carpets dry for 60 minutes—rather than the days required by steam cleaning or the weeks required by sprinklers—and back their work with a satisfaction guarantee.
In addition to bringing water and electricity, Fresh N Clean Mobile Auto Detailing's team of experts tote microfiber towels, polishers, carpet-cleaners, and other handy tools to each client's home, office, or most scenic parking lot to rejuvenate road-weary vehicles with detailing services. Using 100% biodegradable products, they hand-wish exteriors, buff exteriors to a very shiny level of shine with a machine polisher, and use a hot water extractor to shampoo upholstery and floors while simultaneously removing unpleasant odors.
Family owned by brothers Mike and Mark Davis, Absolute Best Carpet Care clears the grime from sullied homes with professional, prompt services backed by a written guarantee. For well-trod carpets, expert IICRC-certified rug groomers orchestrate a plan of attack against offending fibers with a full carpet cleaning ($89 for up to two rooms of combined 300 sq. ft.), combining a thorough prevacuuming and stain treatment with hot-water extraction and an optional carpet protector ($0.10/sq. ft.) to ward off future stains. Tile and grout services degunk almost any kind of tile—ceramic, marble, porcelain, or light-up disco dance floor—in kitchens and bathrooms, using cleaning solutions that blast semiporous grime magnets with hot water before suctioning them away. Duct cleaning ($85 for setup plus $10/duct) flushes out the airborne detritus and nesting chimney sweeps that clog your home’s ventilation system, while dryer-vent cleaning ($75) vacuums up years of accumulated lint from inside clothing ovens.
The focus of our work is on maintaining and restoring the look and artistic value of our client’s fine furniture, as well as retaining the value and integrity of the antique. To do so we utilize the finest traditions of quality hand craftsmanship available, we do so with all environmentally safe products.
