Once upon a time, Swanson's Cleaners technicians would begin their days by firing up irons, stirring starches, and strapping on roller skates. The business was once one of the largest dry-cleaning facilities west of the Mississippi, the epicenter of Salvin Swanson's vast dry-cleaning empire—an empire packed with Sacramento's laundry, even the chain mail of its knights. To get the job of all this weighty laundry done, staffers needed their own wheels, plus wheels for their hampers.
Now helmed by the third generation of Swansons, the business has grown to 15 locations. In these locations, the team launders and dry-cleans garments with the eco-friendly Revive system, which uses a gentle, odorless, and antibacterial solution made from organic ingredients. Ever mindful of the earth and the community, Swanson's Cleaners recycles its hangers and plastic bags and has collected more than 27,000 coats for local children in need through its Coats for Kids program.

Advanced Auto Spa's staff prepares vehicles for winter's visitation with the interior and exterior cleanings of the super wash. At the spa, which saw The Situation's Bentley to cleanliness, buggies ride through the tunnel's automated sprays to clear their outer parts and underbodies of grime and erase dissertations scrawled on dirty windows. A coat of Armor All cleans and protects wheels and tires, and a layer of wax seals in shininess. To keep interiors sparkling, the cleaners vacuum up detritus and wipe down dusty dashboards, then give rides a quick towel drying and send them back out to cruise the world's highways.
All of Superior Self Storage's units are individually alarmed, and the premises have video-surveillance cameras and security guards patrolling 24 hours a day. Opt for a 5'x10' storage space ($75+/month) and fill it full of one to two bedrooms' worth of Saran Wrap, or go for a more cozy 5'x5' space ($55+/month) to stow away boxes of winter wear and skis until snow season returns. You may also apply the value of this deal toward a larger storage space. Superior Self Storage also offers free truck rental, so you'll have a more convenient way to move your boxes than strapping them to the back of a penny-farthing.
