While most cleaning companies are content to leave floors clean enough to eat off of, the team from L & S Maid Service strives to leave them safe to eat off of as well. These cleaners wipe away dust with microfiber cloths, polish surfaces with Green Seal?certified products, and use HEPA-filter vacuums to clean up after the kids leave a trail of breadcrumbs to remember how to get to the kitchen. They use green cleaning techniques not only during new baby cleaning services, but also during regular house and commercial cleaning sessions. In addition, L & S Maid Service's staff can clean carpets and straighten up messes after construction projects or parties.

The Air Duct Maids' truck may be pink, but it comes armed with serious power. When cleaning homes' air ducts, its truck-mounted equipment generates air pressure to suck out debris akin to sucking liquid from a straw. Once they've finished that step, the technicians—who are certified by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association—send feeding rods through vents to blast out any residual dust with compressed air.

The crew possesses the skills to tune up any aspect of a heating or cooling system, from installing the latest form of thermostat to clearing out blocked vents to adjusting systems in preparation for a new season.
When Kent Baake isn't scaling rock formations in Yosemite or shooting for another world record in roadskating, the Metro Gutter & Home Services, Inc. founder can often be found devising energy-efficient ways to protect clients' rooftops, doing everything from sealing leaks to repairing gutters. Baake began the company in 1989, taking on each gutter job with only one truck and one ladder. His crew has since expanded, and the trucks have hatched eggs of their own, resulting in a fleet that carries the exterior specialists to counties throughout Virginia, Maryland, and DC. While restoring damaged home exteriors or preparing houses for harsh seasons, the team cleans, repairs, and replaces roofing, gutters, siding, windows, and doors. They also offer attic ventilation and insulation, as well as home energy audits, weatherization, and solar design services.
