For more than 25 years, the staff at 1 Price Cleaners has meticulously destained clients' clothing. The cleaners' eco-safe solution infiltrates fabric fibers, lifting out stains from their deep-seated entrenchments and returning clothing to its former state of purification.

Jackets and coats ($8.98 each) are less likely to attract hungry garbage trucks when they're free of dirt and debris, while sport coats ($4.49) hang proudly in wardrobes after their dry bath.

For more than 20 years, the techs at Five Star Furnace—a family-owned-and-operated enterprise—have been minimizing fire hazards, ousting excess dust, and even helping to alleviate physical symptoms such as watery eyes and sore throats by cleaning out air vents. They use a negative-air-pressure method, which involves sending a powerful vacuum unit into main trunk lines, and use poles, brushes, pressurized air, and rubber whip heads to handle individual vents. All of Five Star's HVAC methods and equipment are National Air Duct Cleaning Association–certified.
The certified specialists at Ventilation Purification have a singular vision: to purge buildup from air-circulation systems.
