Some people think the number 13 is as unlucky as walking beneath a ladder or stepping on a sidewalk crack that crumbles into an abyss. But for the technicians of Clean Guy Cleaning Services LLC, that number represents the 13 steps that they take to cleanse and condition carpets, ensuring homes look their best from the floor up. The Rotovac DHX system rotates hundreds of times to eliminate grime from every direction, even retexturizing carpeting matted by extensive foot traffic or sleeping bears that won’t budge. Carpets aren’t the company’s only specialty—technicians also clean upholstery and tile surfaces.
For more than 15 years, Van Handy's team of expert home fixers has been tackling household jobs of all sizes. Whether the workers are installing new ceiling fans or completely remodeling kitchens, they strive to leave more beautiful, functional homes behind. In addition to general handyman services—including plumbing and electric work—they repair drywall, renovate bathrooms and basements, and add additions to houses. They also deftly build decks, repair roofs, and transform rooms with carpet, tile, or hardwood. Rather than change their homes' color schemes by splashing the walls with spaghetti sauce, homeowners can summon Van Handy's crew for professional paint jobs.
Real World Services Company keeps homes in fine fettle with a staggering slate of services that goes beyond washing baseboards. During the warm months, techs tend to lawns and clean out gutters. As cooler weather approaches, they rake up leaves and ready their snowplows. Before housecleaning sessions, homeowners meet with the staff for a walk-through, pointing out areas that need particular attention and trapdoors that should not, under any circumstances, get tap-danced on.
N.M.E. Builders & Designers' licensed contractors and builders tackle nearly any construction or remodeling task, from repairing a storm-damaged roof to redesigning a new home from the ground up. Specialists let light into living spaces while cutting down on energy costs with new-window installations; protect façades against the elements with siding installation; and add professionally crafted decks, garage doors, gutters, and extra rooms to existing structures.
Buckeye Chem-Dry eschews the excessively soggy and soapy procedures of steam cleaning with a drier, more effective approach. A non-toxic cleaning agent infused with carbonation ($29.95 value for a maximum of 250 square feet) breaks dirt particles’ firm grip on carpet fibers and propels them up to the surface on the backs of little bubbles, where they are easily extracted—leaving floor blankets free of residue and fit to once again tickle regal feet. To fortify your carpet against future stains, Chem-Dry’s professional cleaners will also apply a coat of PowerGuard protectant ($12.50 value), whose acid-dye resistors and polymer base safeguard carpets against clumsily clutched wine glasses, police outline chalk, and projectile-vomiting pet walruses.
