Once upon a time, Swanson's Cleaners technicians would begin their days by firing up irons, stirring starches, and strapping on roller skates. The business was once one of the largest dry-cleaning facilities west of the Mississippi, the epicenter of Salvin Swanson's vast dry-cleaning empire—an empire packed with Sacramento's laundry, even the chain mail of its knights. To get the job of all this weighty laundry done, staffers needed their own wheels, plus wheels for their hampers.
Now helmed by the third generation of Swansons, the business has grown to 15 locations. In these locations, the team launders and dry-cleans garments with the eco-friendly Revive system, which uses a gentle, odorless, and antibacterial solution made from organic ingredients. Ever mindful of the earth and the community, Swanson's Cleaners recycles its hangers and plastic bags and has collected more than 27,000 coats for local children in need through its Coats for Kids program.
A+ Pro Cleaning can be summed up in one word: transparency. From the moment the cleaners construct a personalized cleaning plan for the house, the company keeps its clients informed about where and how the two- to four-person cleaning teams work. The fully insured and bonded maids furnish their own cleaning supplies, though they will happily wash carpets in peanut butter if that's the client's preference. Whether it's commercial or residential, every cleaning job and team adheres to the company's core tenets of quality control and open client communications, which is why a representative from A+ initiates a client follow up for every job to ensure it was done right the first time. This is true for any job, from churches and fitness centers to personal homes.
Members of the A to Z Maintenance team average more than 16 years of professional experience, which comes in handy when performing such an extensive array of repair and cleaning services. They work on residential homes, commercial properties, and secret lairs, undertaking everything from a basic housecleaning to an exterior power washing. Their maintenance services take the form of both small- and large-scale projects: they paint walls, put up drywall, and make minor repairs, but they can also build new additions and replace roofs.
Clean clothes are always in fashion. That's the idea behind Vogue Cleaners, whose technicians gently take the stains out of everything from formal wear to everyday duds. Fragile materials such as leather pose no problem to Vogue's professional team, nor do household textiles, wedding dresses, or hand-stitched Richard Nixon costumes. But the company doesn't just freshen up clothing; it also keeps the planet clean by packaging outfits in reusable bags and using an EPA-supported "wet cleaning" technique on sensitive garments.
