If the old saying "good enough for an ex-New England Patriots safety" holds true, then Green Restoration, Go Green Carpet Cleaning is doing something right. No less than Tank Williams himself has attached his name to the carpet cleaners, along with the review, "Excellent job, great service!" The ringing endorsement might have something to do with the attentive care the staff takes with each client's carpets. They use Green Seal-certified products free of harmful chemicals such as VOCs or moonshine cursed by a shaman. But their tools are just part of their success. The insured and bonded techs go all sorts of extra miles, picking up and delivering area rugs for cleaning. And should a mold infestation arise after a big storm, technicians arrive on the scene 24 hours a day to rid rooms of bacteria, mildew, and other unsavory microbes.
Glenn Young studied art at Santa Clara University before serving as a photographer in the Peace Corps in The Gambia. Upon his return, he founded Artscapes, where he funnels his 20 years of professional photography and framing experience into art preservation. His clientele includes private collectors as well as museums such as the DeSaisset Museum and the San Jose Museum of Art. And to stay at the forefront of art preservation, he learns best practices and advanced techniques from the Western Regional Paper Conservation Laboratory, where paper cloning was invented.
Glenn pours all this experience and training into leading his team of trained visual artists and craftsmen. The skilled staff takes an individualized approach to framing that relies on museum-quality materials such as hand-wrapped fabric liners, French matting, and UV-filtering plexiglass for long-lasting results. In addition to housing works of art from paintings to photographs in a selection of 2,000 frames, they keep their gallery stocked with antique posters, movie posters, and paintings for elegant home decor.
A hub for custom glasswork and hardware, Los Gatos Glass boasts the largest glass and shower show room in the Bay Area. Homeowners can stop in to glean ideas for custom shower enclosures, eschewing light-blocking materials such as ceramic tile or the moon in exchange for clean, clear, and airy dividers made of tempered safety glass. Then, no matter what they might dream up—from curved glass doors to frosted-glass sliding walls—the company’s glass artisans turn these ideas into reality at their in-house fabrication facility.
The licensed and bonded craftsmen at Athena Maintenance & Construction approach every repair and maintenance job with a fresh perspective. They know every home is different, which is why they take time assessing each painting project, window replacement, electrical repair, and carpentry job before quoting an estimate. The benefit of this extra care not only shows in the quality of the labor, but it also keeps expenses within the client's budget.
At E Z Cleaners & Shoe Repair, expert dry cleaners take in clothing that ranges from grass-stained pants to blouses stained by airborne chocolate pudding and deftly rid them of their unsightly smirches. They also make things easy on busy customers by offering pickup and drop-off services.
