Realizing that she was left with little time for cleaning after getting through the rest of her family and work obligations, Miss Marie started hiring maids to clean her home. But the results weren’t always great. Generally dissatisfied with these housekeepers’ work, she started her own housecleaning business to help people keep their homes exceptionally tidy and give them back the hours they would otherwise spend cleaning. For each job, Miss Marie’s Maids dispatches teams of two to homes to harvest sparkling surfaces with eco-conscious tools, such as steam mops for hardwood floors, chemical-free cleansers, and microfiber towels. Like the internationally accepted rules for hide-and-seek, their service checklist includes all the major areas of the home, and clients can invest in extras such as laundry, oven cleaning, and pantry organization.
The extensively trained personnel of Best Buy Carpet Cleaning wash residential and commercial carpets, rugs, upholstery, and air ducts with an arsenal of cleaning materials made from 100% organic plants, vegetables, and natural enzymes. With a steam-cleaning process that controls the amount of moisture used per session, technicians abolish pet stains from carpets, carefully tend to dirty Persian or Oriental rugs, and cleanse furniture with adroit disinfecting, vacuuming, and deodorizing skills. Elsewhere, their van-powered cleaning tools eradicate tile and grout, their power stretchers re-stretch carpets, and their floor specialists cover all wooden-floor needs, such as restoration and cleaning. Through a 24-hour water-damage emergency line, meanwhile, customers can summon Best Buy Carpet Cleaning's team of certified water-damage experts to inspect homes or office buildings damaged by floods or water-balloon parties.
Having resolved at a young age to pursue his passion for green building, Jeff Kaplan created the Urban Land Institute's Young Leaders Program when he was just 21 years old. In late 2007, Jeff started New Living, a green building and home store whose high environmental standards earned the shop a B Corporation certification. Today, New Living sells exclusively eco-friendly products from ethical businesses, stimulating the local green economy while making green materials more affordable and accessible. Staff members passionate about responsible consumerism often help customers interested in repurposing and refinishing items. Kaplan's efforts at revitalizing Houston's small businesses and affinity for wearing capes earned him the title of Green Hero from the U.S. Green Building Council.
