At 3 Girls and A Broom, potential employees begin their ascent to staffdom by acing an exhaustive screening process and continuing to master techniques at classes throughout their tenure. The expert cleaners, armed with their own supplies, are dispatched to homes, where they adapt sanitizing services to each patron's wishes. Throughout the entire homestead, staffers may dust baubles and vacuum furniture and carpets before washing hardwood floors and emptying trashcans of rubbish and discarded houseguests. In kitchens, they muscle out filth atop counters and appliances, ensuring microwaves sparkle inside and out before moving to bathrooms. There, they shine mirrors and chrome fixtures, and disinfect all porcelain surfaces. Bonus cleaning treatments include scouring oven and fridge interiors for grime and escaped cereal-box prizes, unpacking boxes, and washing windows or walls.

The team at Tutus and Tennis Shoes specialize in entertaining youngsters with a variety of party options. During royal-themed festivities, the civilian birthday girl and her guests transform into princesses thanks to a costume chest brimming with gowns, tiaras, and pearls. Pop-star costumes replace glamorous gowns during Diva Rock Star parties, whereas co-ed Princesses and Pirates parties allow boys to get in on the fun by donning swashbuckling outfits. Dress-up is just one facet of the themed parties, however. They can also be tailored to include activities such as karaoke, fashion shows, and spa treatments, along with tasty snacks and icy beverages. For maximum convenience, festivities can take place onsite at the decorated party venue or in the comfort of the host’s home.
In addition to parties, the staff also hosts etiquette classes where children learn the art of apologizing, sharing, and table manners. The focus turns to dining during princess-etiquette sessions, where young girls don fancy threads before learning how to correctly use utensils and bestow knighthood with a soup ladle.
