What began as a simple referral service for basic tidiers has expanded to include a range of specialists in window and carpet cleaning, moving services, and even Christmas-light installations, but the business's original goals prevail in the focused determination of its fully insured cleaning professionals.

Physical therapist Steve Meagher specializes in makeovers. They aren't the kind that involve makeup or shopping, though. Rather, they involve ergonomics and posture. At his company, Site Solutions, Meagher focuses on revamping offices with the hopes of increasing productivity and minimizing employee discomfort.

Steve also conducts on-site evaluations, identifying workers at risk for injury and pointing out layouts that don't match worker habits, such as offices where all the keyboards are bolted to the ceiling.
