Quality ceramic and mosaic tile craftsmanship is in John Vadurro's blood. His family emigrated from Italy to the United States more than 60 years ago, bringing with them the knowledge and tradition of such vocations. He bolsters those traditions, however, by keeping abreast of current pattern trends and color schemes. At TileBaths, he oversees all projects, from the initial consultation to the post-production of custom-designed tiles. To ensure high-quality artisan tile work, everyone on his team has undergone at least five years of apprenticeship. Besides crafting pieces for the kitchen, bathroom, and home, they also repair tile and offer upkeep services such as re-caulking.
First-time campers kick off with a comprehensive, one-on-one consultation with a certified fitness consultant. Then, during each session, boot-bodies can expect varied total-body workouts heightened by exercise formats such as resistance training, jump roping, kickboxing, Pilates, partner drills, short-distance running, and encyclopedia ripping-in-half. At the end of four weeks, goals are assessed and firm, silent, head nods of confidence are exchanged. Long Beach Boot Camp requires that all campers bring the following equipment to each session: exercise mat, set of hand weights, resistance band, and water bottle.
Natural Area Rugs weaves natural fibers such as sisal, seagrass, wool, jute, and bamboo into durable, earth-friendly floor coverings. A 6'x9' Sedona bamboo rug ($95) sets a trap for hungry pandas, so homeowners can check paw prints against a database of known masked bandits before quickly wiping foot tracks from the rug’s easy-to-clean surface. A 4'x6' Sunset sisal rug ($99) comes with a non-slip latex backing to prevent embarrassing trips, and even more cautious customers can add a washable rug pad ($10–$99) to further reduce the chance of slippage. Picky patrons can also craft custom rugs, using the online order form, which provides options for shape, weave, border, and favorite presidential nickname, but must call to place these orders.
Just as grandmothers always knew to reach for club soda when eradicating a stain, Chem-Dry Clean Masters’ expert techs know that the fizzy power of tiny bubbles can revitalize carpets as well. They treat dirty rugs with The Natural, a carbonating solution that burrows deep into trapped stains before lifting offending dirt to the surface, where it can be easily removed. The cleaning system also eschews soap—leaving carpets free of residue—and uses one-fifth the water of traditional cleaning systems. Beyond simple carpet cleaning, Chem-Dry employs a special system for removing pet odor that journeys below the carpet fibers, cleaning down to the backing, padding, and subfloor if necessary. Technicians also traffic in a specialty spot remover that erases the stains left by ketchup, jelly, and leg-wrestling matches with the Kool-Aid Man.
