Even if you don't know your light roast from your French roast, you will after a visit to Sudbury Coffee Works. That's because the staff, led by owner Daniel Kenn, is on hand to educate customers about all things coffee, from the properties in different beans to the role that acidity plays in the finished product. Customers also have a chance to see part of the coffee-making process in action thanks to the roaster, a computer-controlled machine imported from France that warms up beans to the ideal temperature, readying them for coffee making or coffee-bean swimsuit season.
After learning about their favorite caffeinated beverage, customers can select a drink from a variety of flavors, pairing it with coffee cake, Tuscan grilled-cheese sandwiches, and salads from the menu.
Air Fresh Cleaning Systems’ trained technicians never stick to one carpet-cleaning method because they know that each carpet comes with its own cleaning requirements and challenges. That's why they wait until they've examined it in person—until they've seen if it’s berber or plush or if it has pet stains or an allergy to water—to decide how to tailor the cleaning process.
Still, in their 24 years of experience, the technicians have found that the majority of customers prefer a low-moisture cleaning method to expunge carpet fibers of dirt and grime. Unlike traditional steam cleaning, this method uses 95% less water, doesn't require shampoo, and allows the carpet to dry in 1–2 hours, ensuring customers can get back to nuzzling floor fibers as soon as possible.
For 35 years, the staff at AJ Rose Carpets & Flooring has helped homeowners and businesses in the New England area cover their floors in high-quality carpeting, tile, and linoleum. Since opening in 1977, the business has steadily grown to include two locations. The Natick store features a one-of-kind showroom design that ensures each shopping trip is free of both stress and hungry bears. AJ Rose's Burlington location also boasts a designer section stocked with products from brands such as Karastan, Ralph Lauren, and Nourison.
In 2007, the company expanded into the carpet and floor cleaning arena. AJ Rose's carpet connoisseurs deep-clean dirty pile by employing a heavy-duty, truck-mounted hot-water extraction method. First, cleaning solutions penetrate muddied floor coverings before a parched vacuum sucks up the moisture to dehydrate shags. Sullied area rugs also get the reinvigoration and restoration treatment with a detailed cleaning. Owners drop them off at AJ Rose's Burlington location, where they can learn to be social with other.
As early as 1921, Horrigan Cleaners established a reputation for restoring sullied shirts and pantsuits to store-fresh conditions; nearly a century later, the skilled technicians continue to purge dirt and stains from delicate clothing. Garments of all shapes and sizes pose little challenge to the cleaning staff, who can also handle household textiles such as comforters, area rugs, and quilts made from tea cozies. The team traverses to homes to clean carpeting and upholstery and protects the environment as well as wardrobes with green and organic cleaning solutions.
