According to an old saying, your home is your castle, your television is your court jester, and your dog is your moat. Repel invading dust-bunny hordes with today's Groupon: for $80, you get two hours of cleaning services from Extreme Cleaning (a $160 value). Its service area extends within 15 miles of downtown Boston.
Extreme Cleaning's family team swabs domestic decks from bow to stern, leaving no shelf undusted and no fixture unpolished. During a thorough two-hour cleaning appointment, a two-person crew will vacuum or mop all floors, rugs, and cloth furniture, including under the plush cushions of velour fainting couches. The cleaners will then empty the wastebaskets and watermelon-seed spittoons in every room, and clean all glass surfaces. In the bathroom, this scum-busting duo will scrub the tub, sink, and toilet, both inside and out, and leave mirrors, chrome, and tiles shining like tinfoil fresh from the microwave. Finally, the crew will scour kitchen sinks, appliance surfaces, and countertops before rendering stovetops, burner grates, range hoods, and microwave interiors splatter-free.
