With the help of a high-powered, 48-inch fan, Clean Air America, Inc.'s truck-mounted vacuum system extracts dust, dirt, and allergens out of ventilation systems at a rate of 16,000 cubic feet of air per minute. To put that in perspective, traditional portable or truck-mounted vacuums muster between 400 and 4,000 cubic feet per minute on a good day. Before each session, technicians send an infrared camera into the ductwork to map out every inch of dust or reveal enclaves of ninjas hiding there. Then they move in with special brushes and scrubbing tools, leaving homes with cleaner air and fewer odors.

Cleanpro's proprietary carpet-cleaning system was developed in the late 1980s and stands apart from other cleaners by being environmentally friendly, drying quickly, and removing residue left behind by other cleaners. Using a citrus-based organic formula, Cleanpro teams descend on homes to kick out dirt, grime, and stains with ion exchange technology, and, unlike standard steam cleaning, their fast-drying method leaves carpets moisture-free within one to two hours. In addition to their signature carpet-cleaning service, Cleveland Cleanpro also spruces up stained sofas and upholstery, applies carpet protector, and deodorizes entire homes to prevent neighbors from thinking you eat soup every day of the week.
