Locally owned and operated since 1992, Sketchley Cleaners endeavours to enhance appearances and strengthen the fibres of customers throughout Kitchener and Waterloo. The specialists employ a progressive selection of laundering techniques ($2.50+) that include folding and starching shirts and hand-scrubbing collars and cuffs. Using gentle machine cycles and waterless solvents, staffers work to purify pants ($7.35+) and dresses ($12.10+); hand-pressing services pamper two-piece suits ($15.25+), eliminating wrinkles and evidence of lunch-hour snorkelling sessions. Depending on the services requested, clients pick up clothing items within 1–3 days of dropping them off. Sketchley’s King Street East location in Kitchener and Bridgeport Road and Weber Avenue locations in Waterloo also offer on-site tailoring, making it possible to finally stitch a favorite shirt-and-pant combo into a unitard.
Garnat alters and dry cleans garments with a time-tested blend of machine-like precision and high-end eco-friendly products. Stain-purging vapours permeate plain dress shirts ($3), two-piece suits ($16.95), and dresses ($15.50+) to expunge grime and residual regret about not finishing clown school. Queen- or king-size bedspreads ($21.05) and duvets ($30+) get refreshed before wrapping sleep rafts in slumber-bringing comfort. On-site alterations shorten or lengthen leg-hugging garbs such as trousers ($9.70+) and skirts ($11.75), and jackets are trimmed up for a better fit ($1.10+/inch), readying them for next season before they go into closet hibernation. Customers can also opt for same-day service in the event of an impending soiree or a rapidly dwindling supply of invisibility serum.
The technicians from Clean Master Services banish dirt from carpeting, grout, and air ducts with the heavy-duty prowess of a truck-mounted system. The system includes a high-pressure hot-water rinse that heftily extracts grease and residue from tile and grout. The clean team's strategy for tackling upholstery—a dry-foam system—takes advantage of circular brushes, turbo-vacs, and shampoos that crystallize for swift removal. The team also uses a suction device with a 100-kilometre reach to remove contaminants and give houseplants a break from the chore of producing clean air.
Maid Simple House Cleaning’s owners and operators, Janna and Jim Chindamo, openly accept special requests. They bring their own cache of cleaning products to each client's home, and they understand that some things require extra attention. If homeowners prefer the use of their own products, such as eco-friendly cleaners or soaps stolen from Mr. Clean's personal stash, Janna and Jim gladly use them while overseeing the cleaning of kitchens, bathrooms, and living areas.
