After soaring the open skies as an air crewman inside of military helicopters, Chris Duffy decided to use his fine-tuned leadership, interpersonal, and physical strengths to start a business. Now, instead of restoring order from above, Duffy keeps his feet planted and sends pressurized blasts of water upward onto roofs, siding, and thirsty clouds.
Since its founding in 2005, Duffy's Dirt-be-Gone has rejuvenated the exteriors of buildings ranging from residential homes to hospitals to 25-story hotels. The licensed and insured company uses pressure washers that powerfully spurt out a specially formulated cleaning solution designed by Chris to break up dirt, mold, moss, and algae without damaging plants or treant house guards. Professional technicians arrive at each job dressed in uniform?jeans or khakis with a Duffy's Dirt-be-Gone shirt?and are often accompanied by Chris himself.
Mountain Air Duct Services improves air quality by hunting out dust and dander in all of the crannies in which it hides, from the tufts of carpet to the hard-to-reach panels of air ducts and dryer vents. Experts arrive equipped with powerful vacuums to remove malevolent dirt, debris, and allergens the home's airways, which they can bolster against future infestation with UV lamps. Specially trained and certified cleaners purge carpets and upholstery with techniques catered to each type of fabric, scouring suede with a gentle wand and drying oriental rugs with the wind of one hand clapping. Armed with infrared cameras and hygrometers, the crews ferret out mold and water damage before sanitizing, deodorizing, and disinfecting affected areas.

As a business name, Soft Touch Pressure Washing may sound like something of an oxymoron. After all, isn't the idea behind pressure washing to get gunk, grime, and dirt off of surfaces using brute force? Although the technicians at Soft Touch are certainly capable of such displays of strength, they take a more nuanced tack toward residential and commercial pressure washing. They combine pressure washing with low-pressure cleaning to rid residential siding of nasty buildup, and they adapt their deck-cleaning process to the type of wood in question—all in an effort to preserve the clean surface below the layer of muck. These measures have earned the team a Roof Cleaning Institute of America certification, but if that alone isn't enough to convince skeptics of the team's capabilities, before-and-after photos are sure to do the trick.
