After soaring the open skies as an air crewman inside of military helicopters, Chris Duffy decided to use his fine-tuned leadership, interpersonal, and physical strengths to start a business. Now, instead of restoring order from above, Duffy keeps his feet planted and sends pressurized blasts of water upward onto roofs, siding, and thirsty clouds.
Since its founding in 2005, Duffy's Dirt-be-Gone has rejuvenated the exteriors of buildings ranging from residential homes to hospitals to 25-story hotels. The licensed and insured company uses pressure washers that powerfully spurt out a specially formulated cleaning solution designed by Chris to break up dirt, mold, moss, and algae without damaging plants or treant house guards. Professional technicians arrive at each job dressed in uniform?jeans or khakis with a Duffy's Dirt-be-Gone shirt?and are often accompanied by Chris himself.
The licensed and insured technicians at Quality Service Company are nothing if not thorough. During chimney inspections, it’s not enough for the team to rely on blindly swabbing flues with pole brushes. They send in video cameras to inspect every nook and cranny that their eyes can’t see and feeler antennae can't reach. The team applies similarly rigorous standards when freeing air ducts of dust and clearing dryer vents of the lint that can trap heat and lead to fires. This attention to detail is what gives the team the confidence to back up all of their work with a one-year guarantee.
Over the course of 25 years of dry cleaning, the staff at Boston Cleaners has developed an efficient cleaning regime dubbed The 13 Travels of Your Garment. The process begins with a warm welcome, during which the staff enters each item into a computer system before inspecting and sorting each piece. Then, cleaners apply one of 20 stain-removal detergents, clean garments with eco-friendly machines, and steam them to release wrinkles and cook any long-forgotten, pocketed dumplings. Garments are then given a hand finish, inspected one last time, and delivered to their owners in protective packaging.
The experienced technicians at TidyMAX take on the entire spectrum of household grime with truck-mounted Bane-Clene equipment. Heated cleansing currents wash over small or large spaces, lifting stains and covering up the evidence of carpet crop circles. Cleaning pros investigate and identify soiled spots on underfoot fibers or upholstery, and eliminate offensive aromas locked inside carpets, furniture, or other household items caused by bacteria or smelling-salt buildup.
