As the mother of a vivacious toddler, Malica Sutherland knows a thing or two about a mess. Despite being in the midst of studying for a nursing degree, she began to share her cleaning expertise through Mallory Cleaning Services. With a smile and the flick of a peacock feather, a savvy cleaning tech wicks away dust and grime from kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms, ensuring that homes are clutter-free in case a robotic vacuum drops by.
It may seem unlikely, but the air inside homes is often more polluted than the air outside. That?s because homes cycle air, which can contain pollen, dust, and dander, through HVAC systems until somebody finally breathes it. The team of technicians at Crystal Clean applies 18 years of experience to help keep indoor atmospheres clear of particulate offenders by scouring air ducts, vents, and ducts. Techs also undertake water-damage repair, stymying the growth of mold and mildew.
What began as a tailor shop more than a century ago evolved into Cleaning by Frederick’s, a chain of dry-cleaning outposts certified by the Department of Environmental Conservation for their environmentally conscious techniques. Cleaning by Frederick’s technicians employ decades of experience as they clean shirts, pants, and dresses, and gently remove stains embedded in delicate suedes, leathers, bridal gowns, and space suits. Most locations have a full-time tailor who can do alternations, and patrons can drop off their garments or arrange pickup and delivery service.
Manned by a jovial team of fabric spiffer-uppers, Betty Brite Cleaners can render most garments and cloth goods fresh and squeaky clean, with all work completed on the premises. Preen blouses ($5.50) and dresses ($11.50+) for the upcoming summer months, or polish a suit ($11.50) to ensure a dapper presence at lemonade-stand merger conferences. If dress shirts are dropped off early, the shop will spruce them up in time for same-evening engagements ($1.65). Bed spreads ($18.46) and queen-sized comforters ($37.73) and duvet covers ($24.75) emerge crisp and more enthused about mattress envelopment, and curtains ($10–$25) and couch covers ($18.16) return to draping duties with added vibrancy. Betty Brite’s staff can restore accessories such as hats ($6.50), ubiquitous fabrics ranging from silk and cotton to acrylics, as well as specially treated materials.
