More than 200,000 cleanings inform the work of the Be Green Carpet Cleaning's staffers, who scrub hardworking floor coverings with natural and organic cleaning solutions that leave fibers looking, feeling, and smelling fresher. The organic cleaning solutions make carpets safer for children, pets, and adults with allergies by using active enzymes to gobble up dirt and grime. These live enzymes also erase pet stains instead of just masking them, neutralizing pet odors and lifting stains from fibers without leaving behind mildew or mold. Be Green Carpet Cleaning's technology can also gussy up furniture, ridding love seats of unsightly stains and unearthing tombs of mummified bagel dogs hidden beneath sofa cushions.
Dedicated to commercial and residential cleaning, the family-owned Owl Helpers carries out everything from regular maid service to cleaning up after pets and party guests. Whatever the service, the company donates 10% of the proceeds to the Children's Hospital. During the month of October, proceeds go to Brest Cancer Research.
With their powerful, truck-mounted equipment, Superior Floor Care’s cleaning crews keep homes healthy from the ground up. With the help of a signature solution free of detergents, emulsifiers, invisibility potions, and dangerous chemicals, their rotary jet extractor sucks debris and excess water from filthy carpets. Another truck-mounted apparatus forces grime from tile and grout, and hardwood-floor refinishing swaps machine cleaning for extra-shine-inducing elbow grease.
Miss Jenny's Dry Cleaning carts disheveled duds from doorstep to store and back again, returning crisp clothes that have been brightened by a human touch. The garment chauffeur swings by most of the 33 service areas on a regular, two-day-per-week schedule, picking up dingy shirts or cardboard suits in personalized bags issued to each household. Service days vary by area, but orders are consistently returned gleaming and fresh on the next regularly scheduled service day. Caretakers follow up each cleansing with a thorough inspection, carefully purging rogue stains, repairing small problems such as worn or broken buttons, polishing rusty chainmail, and hand finishing most items.
Dutch Shine Window Cleaning founder and Amsterdam native Will van der Meer has been scrubbing grime from domestic glass since 1994. During a standard window-washing ($4–$7/window; extra $1/pane for French windows), his staff of lintel whisperers carefully cleans each pane inside and out, wipes tracks, and rinses screens, rendering windows invisible to even bifocaled birds. Alternately, power-washing ($75/hr) can absterge decks, siding, and outdoor pizza-ovens with its highly focused spray, and gutter cleaning ($1.20/foot) transforms gunked-up gutters and downspouts into glitzy aquatic thoroughfares. After a visit from Dutch Shine, homes' twig-, smudge-, and mildew-free surfaces cast a radiant glow, impressing neighbors and causing nearby squirrels to don tiny aviator sunglasses.

To keep homes kid- and pet-safe, the team can use eco-friendly products on request.
