Over the course of 25 years of dry cleaning, the staff at Boston Cleaners has developed an efficient cleaning regime dubbed The 13 Travels of Your Garment. The process begins with a warm welcome, during which the staff enters each item into a computer system before inspecting and sorting each piece. Then, cleaners apply one of 20 stain-removal detergents, clean garments with eco-friendly machines, and steam them to release wrinkles and cook any long-forgotten, pocketed dumplings. Garments are then given a hand finish, inspected one last time, and delivered to their owners in protective packaging.
Licensed, insured, and bonded, Loftin Exterminating's technicians annihilate pest issues. They do it with an effective, human- and environment-friendly method known as integrated pest management. It's a four-step system that begins with analyzing the life cycles of home invaders and whether pest control is truly needed. Next, they properly identify pests to determine if the issue can be solved without pesticides. Third, they manage indoor and outdoor spaces to prevent pests from becoming a threat. With all that information and preparation, they move on to the final step of control, which could include use of highly targeted chemicals such as pheromones to disrupt insects' reproduction cycles. Trapping, weeding, and pesticides are other options, with broadcast spraying of nonspecific pesticides as a last resort.
