Run by a migratory manager who road-trips to DC from his Colorado farm every spring, Dr. Glass Window Washing scrubs scum from panes with persnickety precision. Its business model, featured in such publications as USA Today and Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine, keeps the company small so customers work directly with owners when they call to set up an appointment.
For more than 20 years, the certified technicians at EnviroCare have fought mold, extracted water, cleaned floors, and performed other restorative household services. Their mold-removal and remediation treatments follow a multistep procedure that includes a complimentary visual assessment, an infrared structure and moisture inspection, and an air-quality test with a cranky proctor. Like their water-damage and nontoxic carpet-cleaning services, the air-quality test is backed by a 100% guarantee. EnviroCare staffers also remove pet dander and dust-mite feces with their air-duct-cleaning services, which conclude with an all-natural deodorizer.

Elite Cleaning Services’ staffers spend between two and three hours scrubbing each DC-metro-area home they visit during their convenient Monday–Saturday workweek. Professional grime eradicators descend on cluttered homes at appointed times between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., dusting knickknacks and sweeping, mopping, or vacuuming floors besmirched by foot traffic or one to three Stooge houseguests. Workers take special care to sanitize kitchen fixtures and bathroom furnishings, and leave kitchen-appliance surfaces looking polished and magazine-shoot ready. For smoothest service, Elite recommends that clients leave staffers a list of cleaning preferences and items that they shouldn't touch, stack fresh linens on the beds, and clean up any scattered toys, clothes, and flesh-eating chupacabras lying around.
It’s difficult to enjoy a clean home if it’s blanketed in toxic chemicals. Bravo Maid Service’s staff combats this by tiding domiciles top to bottom with eco-friendly products.

In addition to being safe for the environment, their arsenal is safe for children, pets, and allergy-prone stuffed animals. Their services range from meticulously scrubbing light-switch plates to scouring all household appliances.
