Geek Window Cleaning's trained and uniformed crews travel to homes across Houston to free windows from light-blocking filth. They tackle one-story and two-story homes, doling out a standardized pricing model to avoid lengthy consultations and fluctuating seashell-bartering rates. The crew removes spots and grime from glass, or tackles stubborn hard-water stains and paint overspray for an additional fee. They also extend goodwill by donating a portion of their proceeds to one of three charities—Being Omega, Susan G. Komen, or Houston SPCA. :m]]

Express Laundry Center's arsenal of dirt-kicking hardware renders clothes anew in a matter of 60 minutes.

The 30-pound ($.24 per 7 minutes) and 45-pound ($.34 per 7 minutes) dryers can juggle three or four loads and a bar stool, respectively and simultaneously.

The reliable cleaners’ inspection department ensures that dry-cleaned clothes come back looking as crisp as a deep-fried cummerbund, and its gentle solvents, up-to-date equipment, and thoughtful recycling policies help steward the environment. In addition to its dry-cleaning services, Shelton Family Cleaners also provides regular laundry services and specialized wedding gown cleanings. The 7951 Katy Freeway location in Houston also performs alterations and repairs.

Having resolved at a young age to pursue his passion for green building, Jeff Kaplan created the Urban Land Institute's Young Leaders Program when he was just 21 years old.
