With three locations dotting the map, Michelle Cleaners keeps Clevelanders' clothes spotless with thorough dry cleaning complemented by attentive customer service. Customers haul in hampers full of sport shirts, skirts, and sweaters, whereupon the dry-cleaning experts set to work with Sanitone products to shoo away spots and unveil brighter colors and softer textures. The shop also offers an array of non-dry-cleaning services, such as alterations and wedding-gown preservation.
Mothers know best, but they can't know everything. That's why the cleaners from Mamas with Mops—whose goal is to live up to the cleaning standards of a discerning mom—defer to the homeowner on all matters, skipping a room or altering their routine upon requests. Typically, though, they follow a checklist of cleaning tasks that includes sanitizing doorknobs and hand washing hardwood floors, all with certified green cleaning products. However, unlike with your own Mom or with a school principal shouting insults at you over the loudspeaker, you can talk back; unsatisfied homeowners can contact cleaners within one business day to express concern.

In addition to facilitating easy moves, Haul-My-Mess offers junk-removal services focused on reducing landfill waste by delivering reusable goods to local donation and recycling centers.
P&T Carpet Cleaning's team of professional fabric cleaners lifts stubborn spots and grime from carpets and upholstery with powerful truck-mounted equipment. After flushing out ground-in dirt from heavily trafficked floors, technicians rake carpets to remove vacuum tracks and any residing debris. Deodorizing treatments can then banish unpleasant odors caused by pets, and applications of Scotchgard keep hard-to-clean stains from forming in the first place, kind of like a precursor to precognition crime technology.
Fast Needle-Milton's squad of skilled, diligent needlesmiths earned the 2011 Customer Satisfaction Award from Talk of the Town.

Nimble needles can adjust sports-coat sleeves ($22.95) or curtail the dimensions of a dress ($16.95) for maximum wearability. Shortening a wedding gown ($100) can help the sewers' bridal customers avoid tripping on hemlines during fast-paced rounds of the chicken dance at wedding receptions.
The brothers Antonius are 35-year veterans of the carpet-cleaning craft who have a skilled staff of technicians on hand to meet each appointment. Your pile-pillaging odyssey begins with a 15-minute carpet evaluation. Then, one of several cleaning methods is deployed, depending on your dirt's modus operandi. Steam desoils deep below your carpet's buttery crust, and an absorbent powder extraction eliminates drying time.

Call ahead for an appointment.
