Aided by their arsenal of powerful equipment and more than a decade of experience, Dry Door's team of household cleaners divests carpets and floors of built-up grime. Waltzing their way through the dirt like dates at a Dust Bowl–era prom, carpet cleaners and their truck-mounted extractors and pressure washers work in tandem to flush soil out of all types of carpets and rugs without the need for soaps, which can leave behind residue. Floor cleaners work with similar care, slathering hardwood, laminate, tile, and linoleum surfaces with environmentally friendly cleaning agents to imbue them with a brilliant shine. The fully insured staffers also resolve water-damage issues, dispatching from their office 24 hours a day to help homeowners in need.

Windows reflect upon their renewed clarity, mirrors beg for attention, and scoured stovetops regain the urge to sizzle. Following the house-bath, an appliance of your choice embarks on a spirit journey of rebirth.

During his time in the Air Force, Dean Schwaner studied HVAC systems, which he parlayed into civilian life with Apache Air Solutions, named after the Apache helicopters he worked with. Dean oversees his HVAC business with the same sense of duty and obligation he honed in the military, and so he and his staff take to homes with professionalism and focus. They inspect and repair furnaces, heaters, and air conditioners in the home and install new ones if the old are beyond repair. Whether it's a broken system or a unit that simply needs a tune-up, Apache's techs take the time to inspect the heater or A/C unit and get it up to speed so homes stay cool in the summer and ward off vagrant snowmen with warmth the winter.
The staff of cleaning technicians at Get it Cleaned transforms messy homes and commercial offices into clean, fresh spaces. Devoted to thoroughness, the staffers’ cleaning leaves no surface unattended by their rigorously scrubbing hands, sloughing residue from bathtubs, dirt off tile and grout, and streaks from windows. Their carpet- and upholstery-cleaning process runs fabrics and fibers through a gamut of six steps involving pretreatment, hot-water extraction, and a pH balancing. The team further demonstrates a commitment to thoroughness by leaving each client a scorecard, by which customers can rate the technician’s work or fill in their own names and grade themselves.
