Best Austin Handyman dispatches its eponymous technicians to perform a long list of home repair and renovation services. A portfolio of previous jobs includes remodeled bathrooms and tubs, kitchens, and counters, but they'll also gladly fix leaky faucets, install doors, and paint walls.
For more than 25 years, The Steam Team has dispatched crews to residential and commercial sites to clean up and make repairs. The company's insured technicians often begin by hauling out hot-water-extraction systems that use steam to remove embedded dirt. While they're at it, the techs can also clean upholstery and leather, refinish hardwood floors, and clear air ducts of dirt and crawling action heroes. The team even repairs damage caused by fire, wind, and hail. The Steam Team does all this using biodegradable, nontoxic products that are safe for humans and pets.
Beneath the Colorado sun, Jason Ballard stands holding a hammer, looking upon the half-finished home before him. As a green builder, Ballard takes pride in constructing homes designed for health and efficiency, but unfortunately, local suppliers often don’t have the products to match his passion. The dilemma prompts Ballard and a few friends to wonder: "What if we could get all the materials we're looking for under one roof?" Driven by this question, the founders of TreeHouse came together—some interested in sustainable building, some interested in cutting toxins out their lives, some fascinated by the money saved through energy efficiency—to amass an inventory of products that they would use or already were using in their own homes. The store's material experts score every item to meet rigorous health, performance, and sustainability standards, curating a catalog that ranges from insulation made of recycled denim to housewares made from bamboo veneer. Additionally, TreeHouse's home-improvement gurus demonstrate products at education stations, and host classes and events to teach DIY-minded homeowners how to undertake anything from remodels to digging a moat around the garage.
For more than 26 years, the licensed and insured cleaning crews from A-Best Water Damage Restoration have been cleansing carpets and upholstery after flood damage or everyday wear.

Specializing in water-damage cleanup, the technicians assess carpets and upholstery after such an event, performing free estimates and even negotiating with insurance companies on behalf of customers. The company is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to schedule an appointment or call for help dealing with a water-damage emergency.

Muddy footprints. Wine stains. Pet odors. None of these things can stand up to the cleaning systems used by the crews from All Star Steam Cleaning. The company's specialists are armed with Prochem carpet-cleaning equipment, which saturates carpet fibers with steam at temperatures up to 240 degrees. After the steam has dislodged contaminants, a quick-drying extraction system suctions away moisture to leave carpets fluffy and clean. The process can also help remove unpleasant odors left by dogs, cats, or untrained teddy bears. Customers can also request home-improvement beyond carpet cleaning, including tile, grout, and vent cleaning services.
