Persistent ear infections were once a big problem for Lewis, VioClean owner Trung Nguyen's dog. Despite following the vet's advice, Lewis's eardrum blew out—a complication that led to a surgery with no explanation for the cause. At first, it didn't occur to Trung that the cause could be related to his carpets. After all, he worked for a carpet-cleaning company while in college, cleaned his own carpets regularly, and flossed them every night before bed. What could the explanation be?
Eventually, Trung looked to the environment inside his house for the answers, which led him to seek out natural cleaning products. Soon after making that change, he was inspired to leave his accounting career and start a carpet cleaning company using only non-toxic products. Now he and his techs offer cleaning services that range from floor cleaning to indoor environmental testing and mold remediation. Their Green Seal-certified products don't leave sticky residue behind, dry quickly, and are safe for children and pets.
Though the horse-drawn vacuums of yesteryear have come and gone, North Shore Vacuum and Appliance retains its family-run ethos from when it first opened in 1934. Now helmed by fourth-generation salesman Wayne Simonelli, the shop carries vacuums from dozens of brands, such as Dyson, Eureka, and Panasonic, and the staff performs repairs on a slew of models as well. In an interview with the Daily Item, Simonelli said, "I know vacuums. I go to seminars, conventions. I probably repair 1,000 machines a year." This dedication has earned North Shore Vacuum and Appliance the distinction of Miele Diamond Dealer, with access to limited-edition models only made available to exemplary retailers and scientists still trying to build a time machine.

The technicians at Joe's Carpet Care have two methods or ridding carpets of dirt, dust, and allergens. For traditional steam-cleaning, they arrive with a powerful truck-mounted system that combines heated water and a blend of chemicals designed to destroy bacteria. The other method is a 100% organic procedure, which relies on natural enzymes found in fruits and vegetables to lift grime without impacting the air quality, which is ideal for households with kids, pets, or elderly residents. Regardless of which method they use, the cleaners follow a process that includes a pre-spray, agitation, and extraction to ensure that rugs emerge from the process clean and free of secret dust mite covens.
In addition to carpet cleaning, Joe's Carpet Care's staff can also freshen upholstery and banish pet odors left by the family musk ox. They also ease the process of swapping homes and businesses with move-in/out cleaning services.
