Affordable Lawncare's staff members take a two-pronged approach to landscaping. They improve surface appearance by mowing grass, removing weeds, and tending to trees and shrubs, and they also initiate change from underground. For example, they aerate soil to promote hearty root growth and plant seasonal foliage such as rye, fescue, and blue grasses. Fertilization treatments encourage the birth of lush greenery and adorable baby earthworms.
Just as doctors keep instrumental parts of the body healthy, the Gillece Services team keeps essential components of the home working safely and efficiently. Instead of working on hearts and brains, though, the company's steady-handed technicians operate on heating, cooling, plumbing, and electrical units.
Their commitment to customer satisfaction stems from founder Tom Gillece, who started the business in 1980 and has since integrated his son Tom Gillece, Jr. into a leadership role. In the company’s more than three decades, the team, under the Gillece family's guidance, has made urgency a top priority. That means they're available when needed most, including on weekends, on holidays, and during breakups. Gillece Services also aspires to make a positive impact on its community and on the world; the company even sent one of its plumbers on a relief mission to Haiti after the earthquake in 2010.
For more than 20 years, the techs at Five Star Furnace—a family-owned-and-operated enterprise—have been minimizing fire hazards, ousting excess dust, and even helping to alleviate physical symptoms such as watery eyes and sore throats by cleaning out air vents. They use a negative-air-pressure method, which involves sending a powerful vacuum unit into main trunk lines, and use poles, brushes, pressurized air, and rubber whip heads to handle individual vents. All of Five Star's HVAC methods and equipment are National Air Duct Cleaning Association–certified.
Simplified Systems' computer-repair technicians rush to clients' homes or small businesses to fix malfunctioning computers, set up wireless networks, and safeguard machines against viruses. In addition to their technical services, staffers consult clients about purchasing decisions, helping customers decide which new computer or software is right for their needs.
Sometimes, a greener world is hard to visualize. For the technicians at Green Thumb Lawn Care, though, it’s as easy as the click of a shutter. Before each project, the lawn-care professionals snap photos of the homeowner’s property and create 3-D images of what the yard would look like after their landscapers finish the job. They also help beautify and maintain customers' current views by trimming hedges, mowing grass, fertilizing lawns, and installing new stone walkways over backyard lava pits.
That Stereo Shop's staff specializes in modern auto integration, leveraging their expertise to equip cars with audio, video, and security upgrades. Digital sound blossoms from speakers by top brands such as Kenwood and Infinity after technicians transform basic factory stereos into sonic amphitheaters with iPod-compatible components. GPS navigation systems, security alarms, and remote starters from CompuStar further equip motorists with gadgetry that enables smooth, worry-free commutes.
Lest exteriors feel left out, technicians outfit windows in SunTek tinted films that add style to the car and keep the cabin's high-tech equipment out of sight and out of UV rays. They also dress vehicles in vinyl graphics and banners that portray company advertisements.
