The staff members at Scrubbin Buddies Cleaning Service, LLC appreciate that clean is a complex adjective. That's why they offer multiple types of cleaning sessions that vary based on the house's condition and the client’s desires. Their routine cleanings meticulously traverse the surfaces and furnishings of every type of living area. Wielding all-natural products, the teams approach sullied floors with mops, vacuums, brooms, and wood cleaners in a single visit. Alternatively, their deep cleaning delves into even shadier nooks, such as behind the stove, inside floor vents, and throughout garages. They will even clear light fixtures of bugs that were only trying to read in the dark.
Though both kinds of cleaning sessions entail an extensive list of services, the technicians eagerly field special requests. They can scour offices and spruce up locales that have recently undergone construction, and they are specially trained in prepping homes for moves. To advise patrons on further treatments, they keep a roster of professional carpet and window cleaners on file.
In true family style, brothers Nick and Kirby Kuklenski own and operate two “sister” Ace Hardware stores in Colorado Springs, keeping local homes beautiful with name-brand products and services. Lawns grow thick and colorful with Scotts fertilizers, plants, and seeds from the shops’ lawn departments, whereas computerized color matching in the paint aisles keeps outsides as vibrantly hued as flowers in a garden or a house fly strolling across an artist’s palette. Collections of DeWalt and Craftsman hand and power tools help homeowners assemble Weber grills, with staffers standing at the ready to build any piece bought at the store. Even autos can get in on Ace Hardware’s helpful services: keys are cut onsite, with Sidewinder keys including built-in chips that interact with car computers to ensure proper starts without feeding vehicles buckets of floppy disks.
Since 1999, Top of the Peak Landscaping has brought Colorado Springs' lawns and gardens into full bloom through an array of exterior home beautification services. Owners Bernie and Mary lead a team of insured landscapers who customize their green-thumbed services to the individual needs of the home or business, be it through weekly mowing visits, fertilization, or coordinating sprinkler systems so they don’t interfere with the lawn gnome's nap time. The staff's areas of expertise also include building water features, retaining walls, and fences, and products by manufacturers such as Hunter and Rain Bird ensure that installations endure.
Lawn Doctor’s savvy yard magicians rejuvenate hapless grounds, conjure up spells for increased grass growth, and banish nutrition-sapping weeds. Famished foliage is sated with the help of beneficent Turf Tamer equipment that doles out nourishing fertilizer to every inch of greenery. Grass is then meticulously fortified against intruders with an herbicide which, when applied, causes dandelions, crabgrass, and yard yetis to disappear with a cackle into a cloud of smoke. Broadleaf weed control kills existing weeds, and preemergent weed control makes new weeds think twice about setting their roots down in treated territory. Natural fertilizers are also available for the eco-conscious.
