Armed with brooms, mops, and cleaning solutions, they tackle dirt on the floor, on fixtures, on furniture, and in bathrooms. On top of that, the staff conducts move-in and move-out cleaning services, as well as deep carpet cleaning, pressure washing, and landscaping services, all in service of restoring the aesthetic and resale value of homes and commercial buildings.
Joe May Valet began dry-cleaning and laundering fabrics way back in 1936, when the Great Depression forced people to give up their glamorous nudity in favor of clothing. At four locations around Atlanta, trained staffers use their hands and eyes inspect garments, removing stains and driving dirt from the fabric’s furthest nooks and crannies. Customers with spare hangers can drop them off, and the staff will recycle them or donate them to charity.
In 1993, after years as a tech in the carpet cleaning industry, Gregory Cole founded Pro Carpet as a one-stop shop providing the best carpet-cleaning practices he had learned during his career. Gregory's team, which now numbers more than 30 techs, begins each carpet-cleaning service with a thorough walk-through, during which customers can point out specific soiled areas before the techs evaluate carpets for their levels of dirt, stains, and rainbow sprinkles. As they begin to clean, they employ steam-based cleaning and stain-specific products, such as the company's proprietary enzyme-based pet-stain formula, to remove odors and soils.
Pro Carpet's expertise also extends beyond carpeting, tackling upholstery and area rugs with the same thoroughness. They can also be called upon to repair water damage, clean office cubicles, and sweep dust and allergens from inside air ducts with professional-grade tools that improve air quality.
It isn’t every day that a student and teacher become partners in business, but that’s what happened after Robin Dickson took his first dance class with Matthew Gann. A friendship formed between Dickson, a special-event planner since the age of 17, and Gann, an award-winning ballroom dancer who already owned studios of his own. After realizing ways their backgrounds complemented each other, the two decided to open Allure Dance Studio right next to Cumberland Mall. Experienced dance instructors cultivate twinkle toes in private and group dance lessons across the studio’s sleek hardwood floor. Up to 25 students practice salsa, tango, or merengue rhythms in front of a wall of mirrors that display each student’s progress and most intimidating dance face. All students of Allure can practice what they’ve learned at various parties and events organized by the studio that provide a place where all types of dance can be performed and celebrated.
Rushing to the dry cleaners is arguably one of life's more obnoxious errands. Cumberland Cleaners helps eliminate this nuisance by offering complimentary pick-up and delivery service that can be scheduled even when the client is away from home. They also make lives easier by tackling a wide range of garments from run-of-the-mill cotton shirts and wool blazers to coats made of trickier fabrics such as fur and leather. In addition, their expert tailors can repair many different kinds of clothing and footwear. For those clients who are concerned with the environment, the crew offers wet cleaning, which uses a biodegradable detergent and specialized machinery designed to regulate humidity, retain clothing shape, and prevent the extinction of the turtleneck.
