Household grime, if left unchecked, will inevitably develop into miniature civilizations whose complex network of treaties erupts into a devastating house-wide reenactment of World War I. Today’s Groupon spares you the trouble of tripping over tiny trenches: for $60, you get cleaning services for three rooms from Merry Maids of Nashville (a $120 value). Click here for Merry Maids' service area.
Wielding their own supplies, Merry Maids' hyperefficient dusters and scrubbers clean more than 300,000 residences each month in North America. Unleashed on the interior wilderness of an unkempt abode, the cleaning commandos' voracious vacuums hunt down and devour dust dodos, paper-scrap porcupines, and other clutter-causing prey. Then, armed with sponges and scum-seeking lasers, the militant maids scour countertops and tile grout with the meticulousness of a pilot scraping Dubble Bubble off his plane's instrument panel.
