D.A.C. Cleaning Services, LLC's crews scour office buildings, houses, and apartments for dirt and eradicate the offending grime with a repertoire of eco-friendly cleaning techniques that have earned the company a Green Clean certification. With focus and precision, the licensed and insured cleaners target filth in all of its forms. They assail kitchen messes with ample elbow grease, tidy up bedrooms, scrub every bathroom surface to sparkling, and dust living rooms until they're squeaky clean enough to pass a white-glove test from a popular cartoon mouse. Adding to the repertoire of standard cleaning services, the team can also power-wash entrenched outdoor filth and help organize clients' clutter.
The elite carpet coddlers of Connells Cleaning Service exorcise grime with ecologically friendly solutions, painstakingly restoring floor coverings to showroom refulgence. Pamper up to 2,000 square-feet of hoof-habitat with a high-temperature steam cleansing (normally $0.25/square foot), powered by a truck-mounted unit. After a vigorous vacuuming, a thorough pre-treatment and spot cleaning weaken the resolve of stubborn stains, prepping them for complete breakdown from a sweltering deluge as powerful as the tears of a wizard. Practiced workers move any impeding furniture and finish each cleaning with an odor treatment and a thorough application of Scotchgard, locking out dirt as effectively as Mr. Bubble's panic room.
CRCII certified, All Corners Carpet Cleaning has technicians that are 14 years removed from when they began cleaning, and they’re still tackling stains with a keen eye and stern hand. Their equipment, once reserved for small jobs, now scours the floors of both residential and commercial properties, prying stains out of the fibers and leaving the carpet looking as flawless as a crossing guard’s lawyer. They also tackle move-in and move-out jobs and clean upholstery with equal tenacity.
The Colorado School of Acting's directors, Elizabeth Horne and Troy Horne, combine their dual loves of stage and screen to impart acting chops to students of all ages and experience levels. Elizabeth—who has acted in more than 25 plays and 12 movies—and Troy—a sitcom and film producer who appeared on Broadway in the Tony Award–winning musical Rent—staff their team with veteran acting instructors, each of whom have more than 10 years of experience in the biz. During their classes, they teach students to focus and perform under a variety of circumstances, with workshops in subjects ranging from improv and commercial work to audition skills and voiceovers. They welcome kids for acting summer camps, where they introduce fundamentals of memorization, character development, and rehearsal. Instructors also help thespians develop with more advanced training, including filmmaking summer camps for kids, and a certificate program for all age levels that requires students to audition or present a signed permission slip from David Schwimmer.
In true family style, brothers Nick and Kirby Kuklenski own and operate two “sister” Ace Hardware stores in Colorado Springs, keeping local homes beautiful with name-brand products and services. Lawns grow thick and colorful with Scotts fertilizers, plants, and seeds from the shops’ lawn departments, whereas computerized color matching in the paint aisles keeps outsides as vibrantly hued as flowers in a garden or a house fly strolling across an artist’s palette. Collections of DeWalt and Craftsman hand and power tools help homeowners assemble Weber grills, with staffers standing at the ready to build any piece bought at the store. Even autos can get in on Ace Hardware’s helpful services: keys are cut onsite, with Sidewinder keys including built-in chips that interact with car computers to ensure proper starts without feeding vehicles buckets of floppy disks.
The professional cleaners at Maid2Shine must ace a rigorous background check before stepping over the threshold of clients' homes. Once cleared and trained, the licensed and bonded cleaners gussy up homes from wall to wall during regular housecleaning sessions, move-in or move-out cleaning services, or one-time cleanings.
