Prestige Carpet Cleaning and Floor Care rids floor surfaces of pesky filth, flushing out grout and restoring tiles to their just-placed look. Before tackling floors' trenches, specialists converse with clients during a complimentary consultation, in which they inspect surfaces for staining, damage, and repellency. Wielding a highly pressurized hot-water wand, masterful floor magicians then upend dirt in two rooms—or as much as 200 square feet (a $2.14 per sq. ft. value)—while nearby faucets watch in wonder and shame. Prestige's technicians command control over the high-pressure technology, ridding bathrooms of clingy mineral deposits and lingering self-doubt. Cleaning concludes with a professionally applied impregnating sealer, which leaves walkable jigsaw puzzles easier to render squeakily clean.

Pest Shield's licensed and certified technicians eradicate irritating pests from the dwellings of Bexar County denizens using EPA- and health-safety-regulated chemicals. The initial extended shield service scours the darkest nooks and most sinister crannies in living spaces to evict exoskeletal nuisances such as ants, roaches, and silverfish, as well as more exotic occupants such as mice, scorpions, and singing Matchbox cars (flea coverage not included). A 20-foot perimeter of outdoor pest coverage and an inspection for wood feasters and garbage eaters ensure homes are not surrounded by hostile insectoid hordes. For 45 minutes, homes are swathed in odor-free, nonhazardous chemicals designed to outmaneuver pesky arthropods. For an additional fee, homeowners can opt for alternative chemical-free or organic-chemical pest controls that use natural plant oils or eco-friendly solutions.
