When the cleaners are finished, you?ll be able to breathe easier. Increase your satisfaction with a look at one thing they?ve banished: dust.
Whether you're resting in a mountain cabin, traveling through a city, or being vented out an airlock into outer space, dust is all around you. Microscopic particles?usually a combination of soil, pollen, skin cells, and minerals?can pile up quickly indoors. The problem is exacerbated by tiny creatures called dust mites, which gather in groups of up to 500 per gram of dust to devour flakes of human skin while multiplying in number, excreting waste, and probably chittering away. No matter where you are on Earth, a mote of dust is presently traveling straight toward your eye, thanks to the persistent creation of dust in almost any climate humans inhabit.
Even beyond our planet, dust is ubiquitous: astronomers face the universe's untidiness every time they peer through a telescope and find formations of cosmic dust, which absorb the visible light around them. Although it comes from exploding stars rather than flaky humans, space dust isn't so different from the domestic variety: a 2007 paper published in IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science explored the similarities between the formation of dust bunnies under beds and the coagulation of space dust into planets.
The cleaning crew at Total Laundry Services’ dueling outposts champion textilian purity with a gauntlet of washing and dry-cleaning services. Total Laundry Services’ ablution authorities will bathe comforters of all sizes in waterless solvents before folding them into cuddly origami teddy bears. Like other dry-cleaned goods, comforters can pass through the shops' speedy washworks and onto superheroes’ napes within 24 hours Monday–Thursday, or emerge fresh-faced from weekend getaways by 6:00 p.m. on Monday.
North Florida’s climate may be a dream come true for mildew and algae, but Reidlings Contractors of N.W. Florida have been saving homes from this flourishing flora for nearly a decade. The power-washing experts calibrate the pressure of their hoses for each job to keep from damaging the brick, cement, wood, or gingerbread siding that they’re scouring. This gentle approach, plus the use of appropriate cleaning chemicals, enables them to wash roofs without harming shingles. In addition to pressure washing, the jacks-of-all-trades take on nearly any home project, from garage-door installations and furniture assembly to minor electrical repairs or cleanings for gutters clogged by sticks and shooting stars with a bad sense of direction.
Pristine Maids’ licensed, insured, bonded, and trained cleaners sport their uniforms and slide on their yellow gloves for nearly any cleaning job. With a commitment to providing affordable services, they dust warehouses during commercial cleanings, scrub baseboards during move-in and move-out jobs, and retune party horns during pre- and post-party scrubbings. General housecleaning services leave a shimmering effect in bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. Cleaners can also concentrate their sanitizing on a particular item, such as the carpet, a mattress, or exterior siding, which they blast with a pressure washer.
Cooke's Carpet Cleaning Service cleaned its first dirty floor more than 30 years ago. Since then, its professionally trained techs have steam cleaned the carpets, pressure washed the exteriors, and maintained the air ducts of thousands of homes. With a resumè that long, one might think that owner Anthony Cooke would have hung up his cleaning supplies long ago. But he still tags along and does work on every job. He also believes in completing each job to its fullest. Without charging any extra fees, Mr. Cooke and his techs dispense enzymes for when pets leave odors and optic brighteners for when pets spill their morning coffee.
Modern Cleaners’ professional garment buffers put the pleasure of unsullied outfits back in tantalizing reach with the power of their waterless refurbishing techniques. Let the full-service staff expurgate stains from various fabrics, outfits, and sentient suits of armor, restoring everything from a queenly two-piece dress ($14.50) to a sleeping king’s plush comforter ($24). Pants, skirts, and blouses ($5.25 each) need no longer live in terror of the spin cycle, and dapper three-piece suits ($14.50) and formal gowns ($22+) can recover their unpolluted aura of elegance from the grimy clutches of last call. Efficient same-day service for garments in by 9 a.m. ensures that all clean-pressed orders return promptly and in impeccable form. Modern Cleaners also restores garments hit by nature’s wrath, fixing up couture infused with smoke, drenched by floods, or dissolved by Melf’s Acid Arrow during last week’s LARP session.
