Dapper Ducts' duct cleanings boost indoor air quality by flushing mold, bacteria, and dust mites out of ventilation-system hidey-holes. First, technicians will cut an access hole in the main ductwork and attach a negative air machine before removing vent covers, cleaning grills, and plugging vent covers with foam so debris doesn't fly out. Then, Dapper Ducts' cleaners will aim an air compressor down each shaft, attacking stubborn encrustations with 200 pounds of pressure per square inch. Debris dislodged in this airy onslaught swirls down to the main vent, where a high-powered vacuum slurps it up. After each duct has been air-scrubbed, technicians reseal access holes with prefab sheet-metal doors that can be reopened the next time the ducts need to be serviced. Finally, they'll perform a last check to make sure they've left all areas clean and free of Funyuns.

The shop’s technicians have spent more than two decades repairing and installing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning in homes and offices. They keep lungs happy by sucking out the grime and allergens that accumulate in air ducts and dryer vents, ridding homes of dander, lint, and the skeletons of incompetent cat burglars.

It’s hard to find a job blowing bubbles, but the technicians at Express Dry Carpet Cleaning have done just that. Wielding a low-pressure spray machine, they coat carpeting in a layer of carbonated solution, which lifts grime to the surface for easy removal. The product of a non-toxic, quick-drying formula, the bubbles require minimal water, cleaning carpets in a more environmentally sound fashion than traditional methods such as commissioning a living room replica of Niagara Falls.
Beyond their signature quick-drying carpet cleanings, technicians can also steam clean carpets, combat water damage, and remove crud from area rugs. Alternatively, they can focus on upholstery, nixing blemishes found on couches, armchairs, and ottomans.
