The skilled, insured technicians of GreenAirCare favor eco-friendly methods and products when cleaning and reconditioning homes' heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems. During duct cleaning, for example, crews cut down on harmful particles by using a HEPA-filtered negative-pressure vacuum system that draws out built-up debris through the air vents. With cleaner ducts, homes harbor less dust, mold, poltergeists, and other health hazards. Dryer-vent cleanings similarly improve home health by minimizing fire risk as a rotary brush spins at more than 500 RPM to clear away lint, animal hair, and flame-tempting fibers. GreenAirCare's technicians also cleanse home air by supplying clients with products such as electrostatic filters and UVC germicidal air purifiers.

In 1908, Madison and State became the numerical zero-markers of Chicago’s new street system, making the corner where they intersected the new epicenter of city commerce. On nearby Wabash Avenue, the company jumped into the furniture game the same year, selling home furnishings built by skilled local craftsmen. More than 100 years later, the shop still buzzes with that original energy, connecting customers with the finest home furnishings from more than 50 manufacturers. The fourth-generation family business has migrated from the city center to five suburban locales, where showrooms display gleaming hardwood tables, towering entertainment centers, and elegant leather couches. Along with accent pieces and kid-centric design items, each Toms-Price location also offers special services such as furniture refinishing, reupholstering, and moving help. On-staff interior designers can also lend their eye to design projects, artfully arranging rooms and selecting the color schemes, fabrics, and wax doll heads that best bring out the inner you.
