For more than 15 years, family owned and operated Masterclean's team of professional cleaners has been scouring homes and businesses with an array of dirt-defying services. Meticulous cleaners travel through domiciles with eco-friendly pet- and child-safe cleaning products, leaving unblemished swaths of carpet in their wake. Piping-hot steam laden with enzyme-based cleaners and deodorizers then billows from a truck-mounted unit, pulling trod-in grime from carpet fibers. When they aren't scrubbing rugs, techs turn their attention to sullied upholstery, windows, drapes, and air ducts. They also specialize in water-damage restoration for homes that have been flooded by a storm or stream of tears caused by a sappy rom-com. Cleaners can grease their elbows Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Extreme Clean’s scrubbing squad corrals the power of hot steam to scour dirtied rugs and revitalize trafficked carpets. After spritzing domestic turfs with a prespray treatment, the expert crew attacks flooring with a truck-mounted hot-water steamer to effectively wash away food stains, lift muddy paw prints, and overthrow dust-bunny regimes. A basic spot removal disintegrates stubborn stains, and for an added charge, the crew will treat upholstery or Teflon and mist-soiled rugs and fabrics with additional treatments. Clients can also request the use of hypoallergenic products to avoid irritated noses and sneezing armchairs. After the 90-minute scrubbing, customers should allow 2–3 hours for the carpet to fully dry.
Century Chem-Dry, an independently owned and operated Chem-Dry franchise, operates based on two principles: research and results. Thirty years in the making, Chem-Dry's eco-friendly, patented The Natural cleaning product—which is safe for children, pets, and hypersensitive poets—uses natural carbonation to lift away dirt, grime, and odor without soaps, detergents, solvents, or harmful chemicals. Patented PowerGuard protectants repel stains between cleanings, and specialized P.U.R.T. pet-odor-removal treatments—which were developed over 10 years and are guaranteed to leave carpets smelling fresh—combine all-natural plants, spices, herbs, and citrus ingredients with a fiber-protecting polymer. Stain-removal, anti-static, anti-allergy, deodorizing, and sanitizing products are also available. In addition to carpet cleaning, Century Chem-Dry’s certified technicians apply their proprietary products and expertise to upholstery and area rugs. Additional services include cleaning and protecting tile and grout, and repairing water damage caused by leaks, floods, or escapist goldfish.
For 34 years, Dick Kelly and his team of friendly sofa herders have collected fine specimens of used furnishings of all stripes and styles. The spacious showroom lays out an impressive spread of household accessories ideal for every room, such as a serpentine front sofa table ($165), or a Belmar sofa ($375), cushioning popcorn-chomping movie buffs and competitive couch-surfers alike. In addition to peddling cushiony recliners and sofas, Platte Furniture swaddles sleepers in a full set of colorful Egyptian-cotton bed sheets ($40–$50), decking out mattresses with flat sheets, fitted sheets, and two pillowcases. Like the sheets that graced King Tutankhamun's racecar bed, the more than 1,000 thread-count textiles soothe snoozers with the silky texture of a high-strength microfiber.
