Because Time Flies is more than a business name. It's a statement of purpose. Its staff of professional cleaners understands that household chores detract from time spent with family and friends and attending important social events. Thus, the cleaners dedicate themselves to tidying everything from floors and light fixtures to sinks and counters, allowing clients to devote their lives to what really matters.
Standard Furniture traces its origins back to 1912, when a local family began traveling through Birmingham, peddling fine household furniture out of a wagon. Four generations later, the business has blossomed into 13 retail stores throughout Alabama and Tennessee, and its century-long commitment to quality furniture and customer service won it the Alabama Retail Association’s Silver Award as one of the Retailers of the Year in 2011. Each gallery abounds with bedroom, living-room, and dining-room furniture from top designers such as Lane, along with mattresses in a range of shapes and styles from brands such as Tempur-Pedic, Serta, and Jamison. At each location, a knowledgeable staff awaits to offer design counsel, suggesting pieces that best suit a household’s style or will hold up against a disobedient pet woodchuck.
When redesigning a home, Jamie Ann Maldonado of JAM Design Interiors certainly pays attention to how her clients feel. But she also has someone else in mind: the people who might someday repurchase that home. With a keen eye trained on trends in the Atlanta-area real-estate market, she makes sure that her design decisions will only add to the property's eventual resale value. Since Maldonado earned her BFA in Interior Design from Savannah College of Art and Design a decade ago, she's kept busy with both residential work and redesigns of boutiques and office spaces.
The floor-fresheners at Regency Carpet and Floor Care relieve tiles and textiles of the dirt, odors, and contaminants left behind by daily traffic and pollution. During a 10-step carpet cleaning ($150–$190 for 500 sq. ft.), the hot hands of pressurized, truck-mounted steam-cleaning equipment massage tired carpets into sanitized bliss without saturating carpet backing, subflooring, or underground lairs. Those with animals can opt for the pet-odor-control treatment ($45/gallon of solution), in which carpet cleaners sniff out soiled spots with detection equipment before spraying suspect areas down with an oxidizing, bacteria-chewing solution. The dirt whispering extends to tile and grout ($1–$1.25/sq. ft.) as well as upholstery ($45–$105), taming even the most temperamental fabrics. Coat grabby grout with a stain-resistant sealant, or dress carpets and upholstery with a layer of 3M Scotchgard to protect against future spills and stains.
