Procare, a family-owned-and-operated company, has been freshening floors by evicting grime for more than 12 years. Its staff of trained dust busters will move up to three moderately sized (50 lbs. or less) pieces of furniture per room, then go to work annihilating pet messes, the grey of high-traffic areas, and ground-in LEGO helmets. Procare's carpet-cleaning process makes homes healthier by sucking and sanitizing carpets at a temperature of up to 275 degrees; high heat evicts mold and converts dust mites into angel tears, while the cloud of resulting steam ensures that bacteria flees forthwith. With pollutants piled on wagons headed West, homeowners will be able to enjoy a manifest destiny of healthier air within 2-6 hours.

Buckeye Chem-Dry eschews the excessively soggy and soapy procedures of steam cleaning with a drier, more effective approach. A non-toxic cleaning agent infused with carbonation ($29.95 value for a maximum of 250 square feet) breaks dirt particles’ firm grip on carpet fibers and propels them up to the surface on the backs of little bubbles, where they are easily extracted—leaving floor blankets free of residue and fit to once again tickle regal feet. To fortify your carpet against future stains, Chem-Dry’s professional cleaners will also apply a coat of PowerGuard protectant ($12.50 value), whose acid-dye resistors and polymer base safeguard carpets against clumsily clutched wine glasses, police outline chalk, and projectile-vomiting pet walruses.
