Shine-Bright can make windows disappear—or so it would seem. Rather than using dingy squeegees, the company's insured technicians hand wax and polish glass with specialty cotton cloths. This ensures smudge-free views without all the messy cleanup. Homeowners may solicit a crew to remove spots from a simple sliding door or bay window, or they may commission them for more precarious glass surfaces such as a skylight or a sleeping giant's monocle.
The handymen at Brothers Home Maintenance resurrect homes from the depth of grime on both the inside and out. The fearless professionals brave tall ladders to pluck leaves, twigs, and giants’ toenail clippings from clogged gutters and to scrub windows bird-confusingly clean. They can also power wash exteriors, stain decks, and apply fresh paint to walls and trim. All this craftsmanship would be wasted if they focused solely on the outside of the house, so with equal aplomb, the team works to rekindle frayed electrical systems just in time for the lights to shower attention onto rebuilt carpentry projects, which they tackle with steady workmanship and experience.

Skillful sound engineers capture all the audio, and editors can splice different scenes together or superimpose a slam-dunking dog into every frame.

As they clamber up the sides of dirty buildings, the cleaners at Green Goose Roof & Exterior Cleaning only have one thing on their minds: busting up dirt without harming the exteriors. To that end, they’ve traded overly intense pressure washers for a soft-wash cleaning system that whisks away dirt, mold, and algae without excessive force. In addition to freeing siding from unsightly stains, the cleaners tackle roof-based grime and can free gutters of gunk while they’re up there. Windows also get their chance to shine, with glass buffed by a special wipe-away window wax that takes stains and dirt with it. Power washers do make an appearance, if needed, but only to blast stubborn marks off of walkways or brick.
