Spotless New England—honored as the Best House Cleaner in 2014 by _Boston Magazine_—prides itself on its meticulous staff and its all-natural cleaning products. Put the two together and you have cleaners scouring every nook and cranny of a home with family- and pet-safe cleaning products. The crews uproot dirt in all its forms and leave surfaces from the kitchen sink to the bathtub shiny. Their cleaning itinerary is extensive and promises that cleaners make all the necessary stops: bedrooms, kitchen, underneath dolls' fingernails. And, they do so with deliberate tools chosen for their safety, including microfiber cloths, HEPA vacuums, and Method-brand green cleaning supplies. Spotless also offers commercial cleaning and landscaping services; owner Nick Dennis is a respected member of Boston's non-profit community who's done work with The Young Leaders Council of Fenway Health and the Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth.
New England Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning's army of technicians arrives at doorsteps bearing truck-mounted steam cleaners that blast away smells and stains without the use of damaging chemicals. Hoses engulf soiled carpets, rugs, or upholstery with 220-degree water, which flushes through fibers to extract compacted dirt and stains left over from startling a mustard tester. Cleaning sessions forge pristine carpets without leaving a chemical residue, and optional carpet protectors can gird floorings against future stains. Before being hired, each technician must pass a comprehensive national background check, ensuring every carpet cleaner is safe, friendly, and not dripping with paint.
The technicians at Joe's Carpet Care have two methods or ridding carpets of dirt, dust, and allergens. For traditional steam-cleaning, they arrive with a powerful truck-mounted system that combines heated water and a blend of chemicals designed to destroy bacteria. The other method is a 100% organic procedure, which relies on natural enzymes found in fruits and vegetables to lift grime without impacting the air quality, which is ideal for households with kids, pets, or elderly residents. Regardless of which method they use, the cleaners follow a process that includes a pre-spray, agitation, and extraction to ensure that rugs emerge from the process clean and free of secret dust mite covens.
In addition to carpet cleaning, Joe's Carpet Care's staff can also freshen upholstery and banish pet odors left by the family musk ox. They also ease the process of swapping homes and businesses with move-in/out cleaning services.
