The damage that pests can inflict upon a home is widespread: termites can eat away at a foundation, pests can ruin gardens and fixtures, and mosquitoes and spiders can make homeowners uncomfortable in their own backyard. The exterminators at Hannan Environmental Services nip these problems in the bud before their presence develops into a serious issue. Since 2001, the outfit has eliminated populations of these pests, as well as others such as silverfish, ants, and roaches, within homes' interiors and exteriors. Before applying termite treatment to a foundation or spraying the lawn, the team sizes up the scope of the job and offers clients an estimate entirely for free.
Bruce Broderick began his career in the cleaning industry 37 years ago before funneling his expertise into establishing Sun Coast Cleaning & Restoration in 1988. The bonded, licensed, and locally trusted company has since grown to encompass many areas of housecleaning, including tile, grout, and air-duct work. After teams of carpet whisperers enter homes, they scrub soiled fibers free of stains, pet odors, and pulverized remote controls. They perform area rug cleanings either in the home with deep steam or at the company’s central plant with complimentary rug pick-up and delivery. Grayed grout gives up its stains under the hands of trained technicians, who wield high-pressure and chemical-free vacuum systems to restore the materials, or move their focus to upholstery, which they custom-treat based on the fabric. Sun Coast can also spiff homes on request with biodegradable cleaning products that are kind to the earth, allergy sufferers, and overworked landfills.
The suds-smiths at Eagle Cleaners purify clothing of blemishes and imperfections. Stain-hunters track down specks as tenaciously as detectives pursue corrupt aldermen, then dissolve them with a soil-loosening pretreatment and powerful solvent. Restore two-piece suits to their pre-appetizer glory ($11.25), or send dresses back in time to avert champagne-spattering collisions ($10.99). The tidying techs blaze paths to unsoiled freedom for hard-playing sport coats ($5.99) and winter-worn sweaters ($6.99). Shirts and blouses swim through the cleaning vat, emerging from the pool purged ($5.75). Customers living from Indiantown Road to Northlake Boulevard and from the ocean to the turnpike need never leave the comfort of their pillow forts, as free pickup and delivery can be arranged online.
Green Clean kicks dust, crust, and cobwebs to the curb without afflicting the home’s inhabitants or the health of the planet with harsh chemicals. Using only Green Seal–certified products, Green Clean erases the crud that coagulates around sinks, tubs, and toilets—and also sweeps away kitchen flotsam and jetsam with a countertop cleanse, microwave wipe-down, stovetop sterilization, and exterior refrigerator scrub. Flitting from room to room, the Green Clean crew vacuums carpets, furniture, curtains, and dozing roommates. Beds get made, trash gets emptied, and baseboards and ceiling fans get dusted. By the time the cleaners vanish in a puff of potpourri, the windows will sparkle and the floorboards will be smooth enough to facilitate celebratory triple axels during football games.
