The self-cleaning house. It’s a vision of modernity from the 1950s that, unlike robots or manned spaceflight, never quite came to pass. Luckily, the insured technicians at Maid 2 Please remain undaunted by this failure of technology, fighting the war against domestic dust with a roster of diverse cleaning services. Crews can be deployed for a quick apartment spruce-up or a deep housecleaning, wherein they disinfect the bathroom and kitchen, dust off surfaces, mop floors, and remove lipstick smudges from plaster busts of James Dean. Maid 2 Please can also vanquish office dust bunnies with one-time or recurring commercial cleanings.

Yuen Lui Studio, a family-owned photography business specializing in individual and family portraits and wedding photography, creates visual heirlooms in a tradition of quality it has upheld since 1947. With several area studios available, each boasts a multitude of backdrop options for portraiture sessions, or photographers may take sessions outdoors to add natural scenery to the frame. Wedding and engagement shots come to life under the careful eyes of each photographer as they seize rare moments and trap them in frames to be displayed like trophies from a hunt. High-school, child, baby, and family portraits keep precious memories locked in time for clients, who can peruse an online gallery of their images after their session.

A record-breaking ascent to the top of luxury condominium Bellevue Towers, the Fight for Air stairclimb raises funds to benefit the American Lung Association. Participants will each need to raise at least $100 in donations by October 20 before they max out glutes while completing a 45-, 90-, or 182-story climb, the latter of which encompasses a whopping 3,242 stairs. To keep you climbing at a steady pace, leave the weighty Super Soaker with straw attachment at home and take advantage of designated water stops every ten floors. Though it may be tough, the grasp for the top burns massive calories, earns you bragging rights, and can induce a hallucinogenic euphoria known to the French as l'esprit de' l'escalier. It's all in the name of a good cause, of course, as more than one million children and adults in Washington struggle to breathe each day because of lung disease. Participants that raise $250 or more are automatically entered to win two round-trip tickets anywhere Alaska Airlines flies but do not earn permission to slide the banister back down to ground level. Check out the event FAQs for more information.
