Just The Basics Home and Office Cleaning dispatches bonded and insured cleaners to clean and beautify area homes and offices, just as they have for the last 20-plus years. With owner-provided cleansers in hand—or Just The Basics' products for an additional fee—the housecleaner wipes dust from all room surfaces before moving on to clean grimier sections of living quarters, such as kitchen appliances, bathrooms, and ceramic tiles. Washing of laundry and dishes is also included in each cleaning. After the service, owners find floors washed and swept, rugs vacuumed, and dust bunnies no longer able to reproduce. Each team member of Just The Basics also undergoes a prescreening before employment, adding to the sense of peace of mind the company hopes their work imparts in their home and office clients.
Persistent ear infections were once a big problem for Lewis, VioClean owner Trung Nguyen's dog. Despite following the vet's advice, Lewis's eardrum blew out—a complication that led to a surgery with no explanation for the cause. At first, it didn't occur to Trung that the cause could be related to his carpets. After all, he worked for a carpet-cleaning company while in college, cleaned his own carpets regularly, and flossed them every night before bed. What could the explanation be?
Eventually, Trung looked to the environment inside his house for the answers, which led him to seek out natural cleaning products. Soon after making that change, he was inspired to leave his accounting career and start a carpet cleaning company using only non-toxic products. Now he and his techs offer cleaning services that range from floor cleaning to indoor environmental testing and mold remediation. Their Green Seal-certified products don't leave sticky residue behind, dry quickly, and are safe for children and pets.
When The Original Chimney Sweep first opened in 1976, founder Dennis Arseneau could be found gracing rooftops and sweeping away soot while dressed to the nines in a top hat and tails. Today, he's retired the Dick Van Dyke number and lets his service record speak for itself. Over the course of 30 years, the Arseneau family has reaped more than 56,000 loyal customers across southern Massachusetts and Rhode Island thanks to Dennis's detail-oriented approach to service, which includes offering free estimates and keeping homes free of sootprints. Beyond inspecting flues of all shapes and sizes, his team can inspect and clean dryer vents, oil- and gas-burning appliances, and carbon monoxide detectors, and even offers a selection of fireplace accessories, such as screens, grates, and kindling made from handwritten love letters.
