Short of creating physical clouds to hold people aloft, Mattress Warehouse stocks almost every imaginable furnishing to help customers catch a few Z’s. Rows of name-brand mattresses from Sealy, Simmons Beautyrest, Serta, and Tempur-Pedic entice customers to replace their worn pad for new bedding, such as a standard mattress, a fluffy pillowtop unit, or a memory foam piece that conforms to bodies. Beyond mattresses, the warehouse also carries an ample collection of box springs, full bed sets with rails and headboards, and even premium futon mattresses that revitalize foldable couches.
The uniformed technicians of A-Star Pest Control rely on IPM, or integrated pest management, to evict unwanted guests from the premises in a quick, safe manner. They arrive at residential or commercial job sites equipped with the industry's latest technology that enables them to do away with everything from ants to bedbugs to termites. Instead of trying to get a straight answer from the bugs themselves on which treatments work best, A-Star team members frequently participate in meetings to review the latest findings in treatment procedures.
Mr. Powerwash’s licensed and insured team restores homes and commercials properties by blasting away mold and grime and refinishing exteriors with sealant and painting services. The crew carefully adjusts the pressure of its power-washing equipment to clean decks and play sets without washing the neighbor’s second-story housecat. Once the technicians scour wooden patios and fences, they brush on staining varnish to protect and prolong the life of all wooden surfaces. Never subcontracted, Mr. Powerwash’s painters coat homes and businesses in fresh pigment, and protect garage floors with epoxy paints. They can even tackle projects as large as parking garages or as small as the removal of graffiti from an Easter egg.
Understanding that power washing can help customers as well as the surrounding community, the team enacted and continues to participate in Clean Across Harford County, a program that calls for free power washing of local eyesores. Additionally, for every $199 wash they execute, they donate $10 to Operation Smile, a program dedicated to helping children in third-world countries with cleft lips.

You really can't miss the Chicken On The Roof Grill. As diners approach this local barbecue joint, they're greeted by the sight of a large, inflatable chicken head atop the otherwise unassuming brick building. The next thing that hits you is the smell of smoked meats and pit beef simmering in the kitchen. The chefs here specialize in all things meat?be it polish sausage, half racks of ribs slathered in barbecue sauce, or Reuben sandwiches piled high with corned beef. You can eat alfresco on warm days, or take home a pound of pit ham to make your own sandwiches or build a trap for the Big Bad Wolf.
