After amassing 14 years of experience at a major air-duct cleaning chain, Jeremy Marquardt parlayed the expertise he picked up into his own business. Founded in 2011, Sani-Clean Air Duct Cleaning is built upon a foundation of industry knowledge. Licensed-and-insured technicians use NADCA-recommended Power Vac Trucks—with vacuums and compressors that run off the engines—to create industrial-strength suction that removes dust, hazardous materials, and previous residents’ hidden stashes of soy-sauce packets from air ducts, furnaces, and dryer vents. To help customers ease allergies and asthma, the staff also equips furnaces with UV lights that minimize dust and produce clean air.

They also specialize in ordinary cleaning, including carpet and upholstery cleaning, wall washing, and tile and grout treatments.
Smoke billows from the windows of a white 1,200-square-foot trailer home as water pours from its busted pipes, soaking the carpet as the drywall buckles and blackens. This is a regular day at Jack's House, Rainbow International's training facility and monument to long-time employee Jack White, who ascended to Vice President of Technical Services. Inside, Rainbow International technicians practice the science of restoration through an endless cycle of destruction and renewal. Given that the company's first location opened in 1981, Jack's House rivals Paris Hilton's ability to create disasters that attract disciples; people travel from more than 250 franchises in the United States and Canada to learn and maintain skills that have earned them all IICRC certification in water restoration.
The crew at Rainbow International of Macomb belongs to this network and brings hands-on education and high-pressure heat-cleaning systems to sites ravaged by fires and floods. Part and parcel with their restoration expertise, they clean textiles and hard surfaces such as grout and tile and take a particular interest in mold removal. They will present full documentation of the job's scope before starting work, and take photos before, during, and after the project is complete for your house to show to its friends.

After lasers seek out the cells in their subcutaneous hiding spots, they get the cells to give up their water, fatty acids, and lunch money.
