Logan Cassell noticed an unfortunate trend: homeowners were hiring multiple contractors for large projects because they specialized in one type of service. That's why he created Outside-In Improvement. As a licensed sole proprietorship for professional services, Outside-In can tackle multiple types of projects at once. If time remains after technicians landscape lawns, clients can have them detail cars, paint rooms, install bathtubs, or reglaze especially meaningful donuts.
Wasatch Cleaners began as a small window-cleaning company. However, once they cleared windows up enough to see through them, they noticed that homes’ interiors often needed work as well. Today, their licensed and insured techs also clean carpets and upholstery using a Rotovac system with a multihead steam-cleaning wand. The device works much better than antiquated methods, such as using manually powered systems or turning the whole house upside-down and shaking it.
Wade Martin, founder of Green Solutions Cleaning, oversees bonded and insured technicians who converge their cleaning prowess on carpets with one goal in mind: to evict stains and dirt from carpets while protecting the environment with Green Seal–certified organic carpet-cleaning products. Green-cleaning services have expanded to cover air ducts, grout, tile, and furniture. Before technicians restore carpets or tiles, they conduct a free consultation with clients, estimating the cost of any job and of gasoline on the moon.
The technicians at Rowell and Sons Carpet Cleaning don’t shy away from a challenge. Equipped with powerful truck-mounted equipment, they arrive at residences ready to banish offending stains and save carpets from germs and the effects of flooding. When treating either carpet or upholstery, the furious engine of their Pro Chem Blazer Plus heats and pressurizes water that is used to trap and remove dirt, filth, and pet odors from treatment surfaces. Technicians can also tackle timely water-removal and flood-restoration tasks, and handle dirtier work such as pulling up wet carpet, cleaning out debris, and evicting the merman who has taken up residence in your laundry room.
PurElements Carpet Cleaning Specialists’ insured techs cleanse floor fibers with a six-step process that begins when they put on booties and attach corner guards to each room. Next, they pre-spray carpets with a nontoxic, odor-free, and detergent-free solution that has an alkaline base, which helps to break down acidic stains. After a light agitation that enables deeper cleaning, the technicians heat purified water to 230 degrees Fahrenheit before rinsing carpets with it using a power wand and squirting flower gags. Dry stroking then helps minimize drying time, which can take between three and six hours. For the final step, the technicians do a walk through and make sure the cleaning meets their standards. Luckily for homeowners, technicians put the same attention to detail into a variety of other services, such as cleaning for upholstery, cars, and air ducts, as well as pet odor removal and leather conditioning.
