Buckeye Cleaners' stalwart technicians specialize in cleaning, repairing, and remodeling homes. The appeal of interior and exterior spaces is augmented with a visit from the cleaners, who perform general housekeeping services, or the carpet specialists, who employ truck-mounted equipment and infuse carpets with enough sanitizing agents to help them hide suggestive floorboard tattoos. From the handyman department, tool-wielding pros arrive to remedy disrepair by installing appliances, replacing plumbing fixtures, and remodeling anything from the basement to the Cold War–era satellite still hovering above the house.
The brothers Antonius are 35-year veterans of the carpet-cleaning craft who have a skilled staff of technicians on hand to meet each appointment. Your pile-pillaging odyssey begins with a 15-minute carpet evaluation. Then, one of several cleaning methods is deployed, depending on your dirt's modus operandi. Steam desoils deep below your carpet's buttery crust, and an absorbent powder extraction eliminates drying time. The process evicts carpet-dwelling critters such as dust mites, while creating a healthier environment for invited beasts, such as dogs and ferrets that know how to squeak to the tune of "The Star-Spangled Banner." Call ahead for an appointment.
The sheer volume of garments that Widmer's Cleaners has dry-cleaned over the past 100 years is astronomical, but there are a few special items that will never be forgotten. Widmer's processed many vintage garments on display at the Smithsonian, such as Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders outfit, and the suit that Abraham Lincoln was wearing when he was assassinated. Today, the service menu has expanded—technicians will clean carpets, tile and grout, and upholstery, as well as perform a slew of other services. Widmer's is actively involved in the community, contributing to charities such as Goodwill and the American Red Cross.
CleaningB's owner, Louise Barlowe, dispatches her troupe of trained cleaners to homes, offices, and commercial businesses with keen eyes and swift broom skills. Louise believes that customers’ free time is better enjoyed without the company of mops and buckets, which is why her staffers diligently take care of the dirty work, mopping floors, scrubbing bathtubs, and wiping down kitchen appliances as homeowners relax. Offices can also benefit from a visit by the cleaners, who will tidy up workspaces or wipe clean ceiling fans that have been inventively utilized as giant coffee mixers.
Trained to clean and restore a number of different fabrics, the friendly technicians from A-1 Carpet Cleaners can beautify carpeted and upholstered surfaces for homes as well as vehicles. Their basic steam cleanings exfoliate fibers, and additional odor-control treatments and Scotchgard applications can leave floors looking as untouched as a kindergartner's curriculum vitae. From the curb, meanwhile, they can rejuvenate an automobile's interior by blasting it with rarefied steam. The staffers look beyond fabric-covered surfaces to scrub out air ducts or vents and minimize flood damage to basements. They do this by pumping out any standing water and preventing the growth of mold by injecting penicillin into the walls.
