Heaven's Best cleanses chambers of blotches from baseboard to baseboard under the sure-handed care of unstoppable stain eliminators sent from the future to eliminate lurking dirt. Living humans with muddy mansions, fouled flats, or carpeted caves receive specific appointment times, leaving customers free to better spend their time observing plants to make sure they produce oxygen instead of voice-altering noble gases. Treatments start with a dry vacuuming to clear planes of loose debris before using a mild-cleaning solution to release stains locked onto fibrous strands. The floor-flushing machinery then removes the liberated loam with a low-moisture method that allows carpets to dry in an hour.
