Mike Klinter wanted his company to do things the right way. So before picking up a steam cleaner, he picked up a book. He researched many types of carpet-cleaning products and methods, and attended conventions and seminars; he talked to many other carpet cleaners through forums and webinars, and even took unsatisfied area rugs to brunch. The result of this research is Mike's 12-step cleaning process designed around energy-efficient equipment and environmentally safe products.
For 32 years, the friendly crew at Fish Window Cleaning has meticulously cleaned gutters, windowpanes, and pained windows throughout the St. Louis area and beyond; the fast-growing business is also a Better Business Bureau TORCH Award Winner.

Pricing varies by house.
Like the Milwaukee Brewers on the first day of practice, The Dirt Destroyers' staff sports uniforms and name tags. Unlike the Brewers, though, this team is insured and bonded. When they're not cleaning homes, the technicians can often be found at commercial properties and area offices. They also happily trot out to difficult jobs. Construction sites are notoriously messy; debris collects in piles, concrete gets dirty, and bulldozers toss their candy wrappers anywhere they please. The Dirt Destroyers can take care of these messes with their construction-cleanup services, which include high-area cleaning using lifts and scaffolding. No matter the task, they'll run down a checklist to ensure sites are spick-and-span before they depart. At the customer's request, The Dirt Destroyers will use green cleaning products that are safe for kids, pets, and the environment they all frolic in.

Tenants can also call on Always Bright for one-time cleanings before a move or after a roommate-bonding tomato-sauce fight.
