For more than 60 years, Carpet One Floor & Home has been enhancing underfoot environments with a comprehensive selection of carpets, hardwood flooring, and other floor coverings. Conceal a foundation’s bald spot with a plush floor toupee—such as Millcraft’s Star Island line of carpets, featuring a sculptured, kaleidoscopic look with cut and loop pile to elevate the atmosphere of any living room, office, or human-sized chessboard ($2.50/ sq. ft. with 5-year stain and wear warranty; $1.05+/ sq. ft. for installation).
In 1989, Pro Cleaning Services, formerly Pro Cleaning Experts, began sending crews to clean carpets within residences and businesses and perform janitorial jobs. Using high-tech truck-mounted machines, they deeply clean carpets, which dry two to four hours after the job is done. They since have expanded to include tile-and-stone cleaning, and soon will offer wood-floor refinishing.
When the cleaners are finished, you?ll be able to breathe easier. Increase your satisfaction with a look at one thing they?ve banished: dust.
Whether you're resting in a mountain cabin, traveling through a city, or being vented out an airlock into outer space, dust is all around you. Microscopic particles?usually a combination of soil, pollen, skin cells, and minerals?can pile up quickly indoors. The problem is exacerbated by tiny creatures called dust mites, which gather in groups of up to 500 per gram of dust to devour flakes of human skin while multiplying in number, excreting waste, and probably chittering away. No matter where you are on Earth, a mote of dust is presently traveling straight toward your eye, thanks to the persistent creation of dust in almost any climate humans inhabit.
Even beyond our planet, dust is ubiquitous: astronomers face the universe's untidiness every time they peer through a telescope and find formations of cosmic dust, which absorb the visible light around them. Although it comes from exploding stars rather than flaky humans, space dust isn't so different from the domestic variety: a 2007 paper published in IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science explored the similarities between the formation of dust bunnies under beds and the coagulation of space dust into planets.
Waukee Beds’ packed showroom displays a breadth of spine-supporting mattresses from brands such as Ideal Bedding, Symbol, and Serta. Memory-foam bed toppers—the store’s specialty—conform to body shapes better than a latex onesie, and contain pressure- and temperature-sensitive materials to ease tossing and turning. Helpful staffers make themselves available seven days a week and until 7 p.m. on weekdays to answer questions and help customers determine the ideal mattress fit for their sleep style, be it on their back, side, or with both eyes open. Also available for purchase, framed wall art, including prints and photos, hangs along the showroom’s walls.
Family owned by brothers Mike and Mark Davis, Absolute Best Carpet Care clears the grime from sullied homes with professional, prompt services backed by a written guarantee. For well-trod carpets, expert IICRC-certified rug groomers orchestrate a plan of attack against offending fibers with a full carpet cleaning ($89 for up to two rooms of combined 300 sq. ft.), combining a thorough prevacuuming and stain treatment with hot-water extraction and an optional carpet protector ($0.10/sq. ft.) to ward off future stains. Tile and grout services degunk almost any kind of tile—ceramic, marble, porcelain, or light-up disco dance floor—in kitchens and bathrooms, using cleaning solutions that blast semiporous grime magnets with hot water before suctioning them away. Duct cleaning ($85 for setup plus $10/duct) flushes out the airborne detritus and nesting chimney sweeps that clog your home’s ventilation system, while dryer-vent cleaning ($75) vacuums up years of accumulated lint from inside clothing ovens.
