After a career as a highway patrolman and corrections officer, David Masters opened Stat Cleaning Services as a side business in 1985. David attributes the business's success to meticulous work and personal attention, two qualities he says scored him a job cleaning 200,000 square feet of carpets in two related office buildings. That was the job that spurred David to retire from police work to focus on carpet cleaning full-time.
In each session, a two-person team purges carpets using a truck-mounted system that brings only an extractor and a connecting hose into the client's home. The extractor forces steam between carpet fibers to pull out deeply embedded debris, such as pet hair, crumbs, and long-lost Scrabble tiles, leaving carpets dry less than two hours later. The same heat extraction also purifies tile and upholstery. A special enzyme solution is also available for purchase, which works to break down the bacteria created by pet stains and prevent their odor from lingering.
Each cleaning team checks the quality of their work and ensures customer satisfaction before leaving the premises. In the event that a problem does occur, customers need not worry about wading through tiers of customer service reps, managers, and machine intelligences for a resolution; David answers almost every phone call himself.
The carpet technicians at Revive Carpet Cleaning disdain wet, soggy carpeting. For one thing, wet carpets can’t be walked on. You have to wait until they dry, which could take hours—hours that could otherwise be spent break dancing or eating off the floor. For another thing, once a stain in the carpet has been obliterated with wet or steam cleaning, it often reappears days later. This cruel magic trick is due to wicking; as the carpet dries, the fibers draw up the stain, just like a lantern wick draws up kerosene.
The Revive team eschews these hazards of wet carpet cleaning by using an organic, biodegradable powder that keeps carpets dry as it cleans. A technician spritzes carpets with a prespray before sprinkling on the orange-scented powder, which is safe for children and pets. Next, a powerful rotating brush works the powder into carpet fibers, aiming to break apart dirt, oil, and grease. A finishing vacuum gathers up the loosened grime, leaving carpets clean and free of chemicals.
The team at Designer Maid tidies up homes and commercial facilities with unusually meticulous care?which makes sense when you consider that the owners also run an industrial janitorial business. Running that business has armed Michael and Shirley Wells with the know-how to tackle the grimy kitchens, messy living rooms, and unkempt commercial work sites they encounter each day. The team shows up to each location wielding environmentally friendly cleaning products designed to vanquish dirt and odors without leaving behind any caustic fumes or inappropriate thought bubbles.
Every Complete Clean Pro service starts the same way: a crew of impeccably trained, vetted, and uniformed cleaning technicians arrives with all the equipment necessary to give a dull home a jewel-like sparkle. But from there, a wide range of outcomes can unfold. Hot-water extraction and industrial-strength vacuums safely clean carpets of dirt or stains, pressure washers eliminate mold or graffiti from walls, and a bit of elbow grease cleans outdoor grills of residual cake batter from experiments gone wrong.
This cleaning expertise extends to every room of the house and even beyond. The professionals make appearances at places of business and even manage to de-gunk kitchens for restaurants. But no matter where they are or what they're doing, they strive to use the safest and most gentle cleaning solvents and strategies possible, backing all their services with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
The Regeneration Station’s mission is simple: to keep serviceable furniture out of landfills. It achieves this with a rotating inventory of gently used furnishings, ranging from chests of drawers and headboards to locally made pottery. However, it also pursues its mission through "upcycling." Much like recycling, upcycling involves repurposing waste without just leaving it in the gutter until it turns into litter. However, rather than breaking waste down into its component raw materials, upcycling glams it up—the shop’s upcycled furniture has been rejuvenated with fresh coats of paint, new upholstery, and fresh design touches.
Joel and Jared, brothers and owners of Clear Perfection Window Cleaning, grew up in the window-cleaning business. They have been plying the family trade for more than two decades, honing and refining their techniques over time. Today, they continue to visit homes and brave ladders to scrub windows clean from the inside and outside. They leave windows looking transparent and sparkling as brightly as Excalibur at an important job interview.
