When the owners of City Avenue Cleaning Service were kids, chores always came before fun, and this discipline helped them learn how to keep a house spotless. Now backed by 17 years in the cleaning business, they oversee a team that will polish houses and offices with no-streak cloths and their own cleaning solutions. On cleaning day, a team of trained techs helmed by a watchful supervisor heads to the client’s location, where they wipe down kitchens, sponge bathrooms, and mop floors before backing their work with a guarantee. They’ll gently tuck linens into beds and wash walls covered with scuffs, crayon marks, or mysterious hieroglyphics.
When they aren't doing regular cleanups, the team helps rescue homes sullied by flood and fire damage.

Solar Control Window Tinting swathes panes in professional films that diffuse sunlight and maintain even-keeled climates in cars, homes, and offices. Residential and commercial windows don sheer or dense privacy films from brands such as 3M and Piper, which block up to 99% of UV rays, trap warmth in the winter, and block heat in the summer, keeping energy consumption in check and environments comfortable. The coatings also protect art and upholstery from sun damage, and can reduce the number of flying shards should storms or soprano houseguests shatter windows.
Solar Control’s techs apply the same surface savvy to car windows, precision-cutting film to fit individual panes or covering vulnerable auto paint with weather-resistant urethane film. While technicians work on rides at the company's headquarters, drivers can settle into plush couches, peruse satellite TV channels, and join a free WiFi network in the waiting room.
