High's Chimney Service president Mike Pinto captains a roster of certified chimney sweeps that earned their chops from the Chimney Safety Institute of America and National Fireplace Institute. Before the chimney sweeping commences, a duo of technicians places drop cloths over carpets, furniture, and napping grandparents to protect against meandering debris, as industrial vacuums stand on deck to whisk away dust. The cleaning team then ventures onto the roof to thoroughly remove buildup from the chimneys' crowns, caps, and mortar joints. Regular chimney cleaning purges brick-laid smoke vessels of flammable debris and improves flue ventilation, which can protect against carbon-monoxide poisoning. Chimney rods and a closed-circuit camera help the diligent staffers make sure the chimneys' newly pristine insides can efficiently heat homes, emit cleaner smoke, and play nice with rooster compasses.

At Warrior Fitness & MMA Bootcamp, where the coaches have black belts and compete in Olympic events, it's fitting that the facility's signature Warriorfit program combines martial arts and fitness techniques. During classes that consist of roughly 15–20 students, the staff pushes exercisers through a gamut of Olympic exercises, martial arts drills, and boot camp tasks such as flipping an oversized tire end-over-end without being caught by the monster truck's owner. Don't let the coaches' techniques or backgrounds intimidate you, though; they welcome all fitness levels to both of their facilities.
My Kitchen's seasoned instructors set aside their professional-catering duties to demystify culinary secrets during hands-on cooking classes for adults and children. Grown-ups can delve into the gustatory traditions of the Mediterranean with an Easy Italian Gourmet course that spends three hours teaching the basics of whisking together such Italian classics as chicken marsala with linguine, tiramisu, and edible frescoes. Three-hour Introduction to Cake Decorating sessions flood senses with confectionery delights and teach attendees valuable pastry skills, including how to properly shellac buttercream icing, how to adorn desserts with palate-pleasing décor, and how to level a cake without a wrecking ball. Classes for children teach burgeoning sous-chefs how to handcraft fresh meals that don't include fruit-roll-up hors d'oeuvres or Play-Doh aperitifs, with sessions that occasionally focus on world cuisines from locales such as West Africa and Italy.
Maid to Please’s staff of experienced cleaners undergo extensive training before tackling domestic grime, working from cleaning checklists informed by patron preferences outlined via an online appointment scheduler. Wielding eco-friendly supplies upon request, cleaners infiltrate abodes to de-filth furniture and decorative trinkets, vacuum and mop grunge clinging to carpets and floors, and snag cobwebs from corners. Staffers lavish extra attention on bathrooms, bombarding tubs and toilets with purifying products before buffing sinks and mirrors so they gleam brighter than a freshly waxed diamond ring. Dust scuttles from kitchen counters while dirt destroyers haul cloths across stoves, sinks, appliance exteriors, and microwave interiors.
