The licensed dirt deleters at Green N Squeaky Clean whip unkempt apartments and homely homes into shape using only nontoxic, natural cleaning products that appease the earth. For two hours, two–three seasoned scrubbers will besiege quarters with a laundry list of cleaning services, which include vacuuming floors, a thorough dusting, emptying the trash, and lifting a corner of the house to sweep under its foundation. Once countertops and faucets are sanitized, kitchens will sing in their purest falsetto voices to drown out the depressing beeps of dying smoke detectors, and bathrooms will proudly flaunt their owners' life goals in glistening mirrors. Cleanings can be tailored to address a home's specific needs.

Shirts ($2.95) or blouses ($5.95) vying for bubbly caresses of traditional detergents get their wish within four hours for no additional cost. Imperial's multitasking squad treats all clothes like royalty, including short dresses ($10.65+) or treasured jumpsuits saved since high-school competitive-eating days ($14.75+).
You’ve Got Maids dispatches a dean’s list of Maid University–certified sanitizers eager to display their know-how within all manner of disheveled domains.

Bedrooms are zapped with Mary Poppins–esque magic, and bathrooms are scrubbed clean of soap scum, toothpaste caterpillars, and shameful memories of ill-received shower concerts.
Snow White Specialty Cleaning can dry clean your trousers, press your shirts, or even clean your wedding dress. But to ask for only that would be to squander their expertise. That's because where the cleaners really shine are in the services you might not find anywhere else—handbag cleaning, for instance. Rather than throwing away a hefty investment when it starts looking weathered, ladies can treat their handbags to door-to-door cleaning services from Snow White's cleansing experts, who purge them of dirt and dinginess without harming the hardware or construction. This same allegiance to accessories applies to hats, shoes, and luggage, with careful attention paid to suede and other delicate materials. An atelier division, meanwhile, stands by to take on the projects an average tailor wouldn't touch, such as reweaving sweaters, redesigning fur garments, and even changing the color of a favorite leather coat.
The same part-time window cleaning experiment that Rich Panza's father opened in 1961 as a means to supplement his job as a police officer has grown into a full-time business that is still family-run. In 1972, Rich joined Expert Window Cleaning, which today consists of a team of eight window cleaners. This expert crew travels to homes and cleanses the exterior of ground- and second-floor windows. Back behind the office's spotless windows, Rich, his mother, and his father all still find passion in their work more than a half-century after they started.
