Maid it Clean calls upon more than a decade of experience and eco-friendly products to chase grime from dusty abodes. Patrons can choose which rooms and areas they'd like the cleaner to target, directing them to problematic stains lurking in bathtubs, kitchen cabinets, or spelling-bee-trophy rooms. Mops, brooms, and vacuums annihilate underfoot filth as damp cloths hunt down dust bunnies and Windex polishes streaked mirrors and glass. Prior to cleaning, customers should declutter rooms of toys and leash up any large pooches or pet dragons living in the chimney.

The craftsmen at both Image Gallery Frame Shops pour more than 20 years of experience into each piece as they crown artwork, family photos, and precious mementos with traditional and eco-friendly mouldings. They combine these frames—many of which are harvested from managed and sustainable forests—with acid-free archival mats and conservation-quality glass to ensure memories withstand the test of time. Upon request, they can also use nonreflective museum glass to keep portraits from being startled by their own reflections.
In addition to custom framing, artisans stretch canvases, display three-dimensional objects in shadow boxes, and repair broken frames. When they aren't working in the shop, framers travel to customers' homes to assist with design needs and custom mirrors. For those with bare walls, an online gallery provides access to more than 3,300 images, which can be printed on paper or canvas and shipped for free to either shop for framing.
With a quick, electron-enabled visit to Picture it On Canvas's product descriptions and a photon-carried look at its how-to template, customers can dive into the world of art, interior décor, and science simultaneously. Select a prize photo (digital or analog) from your archives and then use the online order form to begin your photomorphosis. Picture it On Canvas's 16"x20" canvasses are made of archival-quality material, which is thicker, more durable, and less likely to get stuffed into a roommate's back pocket and creased than the original photo-paper medium. Its thick-bar gallery wrap caresses the 1.5" thick edges of your piece with an attractive canvassy embrace that's suitable for hanging without a frame. Consult the FAQs for more information.

Shampoo, towels, brushes, and dryers are provided, along with knee-high mirrors that allow pets to admire their new looks.
