BEST CARPET/RUG CLEANING

BEAR STEAM CLEANING

Bear Steam Cleaning uses a hot-water extraction method that heats water to 180 degrees, which eliminates dust mites, carpet mites, bed bugs and any other live allergens. The company’s no hidden charges philosophy means pricing is straightforward and easy to understand. Carpet and rug cleaning pricing can be quoted over the phone, but pricing for upholstery cleaning must be conducted on-site. In most cases, Bear Steam Cleaning can arrive at your home the day after a request is made.

BEST WASTE AND RECYCLING SERVICE

WASTE MANAGEMENT

Houston-based Waste Management picks up trash, recycling and compost materials. It also wants to educate people about recycling. The company is working to stop “wishful recycling,” which refers to putting non-recyclable materials in recycle bins. These trash items, such as plastic bags, Amazon lightweight (non-cardboard) mailers, and containers with liquid or food, cause recycling contamination, and workers have to stop the machinery to remove the offending items. Also, China, a major importer of recyclables, recently changed its rules about materials it will accept.
