Licensed and insured exterminator Gabe from Riviera Pest Control wields an arsenal of low-toxicity products in his fight against household scourges such as bees, rats, spiders, and cockroaches. His approach effectively kills off infestations of these common annoyances, while stopping short of causing harm to children, pets, and the environment. Common measures include interior treatments of those spots most likely to harbor the uninvited critters, as well as the perimeter treatment, which establishes an anti-insect chemical barrier around the exterior of the home.
Value Added Building's licensed and insured techs draw on 15 years of experience as they nurture edifices by cleaning, repairing, and installing new roofs and gutters. To reduce energy costs, crews install metal roofs, which are comprised of recycled materials with a high-tech coating that reflects the sun and makes birds put on a little makeup for once. When they aren't tending to the tops of homes, they spruce up fa?ades and placate city codes by removing unsightly graffiti.
Licensed, bonded, and insured, the highly trained cleaners of Karen’s Kleaning oust the filth that occupies homes with a litany of housecleaning services. Whether residents call upon one cleaner for two hours or two cleaners for one hour, Karen's techs spruce up interiors with Green Seal–certified cleaning products that have lower environmental impact than chemical sprays or coal-lump Brillo Pads. The basic cleaning services range from mopping and vacuuming the floors and ceilings to dusting the furniture and wiping down kitchens and bathrooms. Karen's Kleaning guarantees the work of its grime fighters, and will return to finish the job if a client is not satisfied or if a newly waxed countertop begins to outshine tinfoil silhouettes of Julia Child. Homeowners can hire the cleaners for more than two hours for $33 per hour per cleaner.
Eco Carpet Cleaning’s crews of licensed, bonded, and insured cleaners fix up floor fringes and fabric-covered furniture with environmentally friendly and organic products.

Alternatively, customers can gussy up spattered and spotted sofas with an upholstery cleaning, during which staff utilize professional techniques to purify pillows of stains and uncover eight-track players buried beneath cushions.
