The family behind Schultz Upholstery has been covering chairs and couches with fresh fabric since 1938. These artisans strive to preserve antiques and heirlooms that last longer than today's furniture. At the beginning of the process, they help clients choose their new upholstery from a selection of more than 5,000 fabrics. Then they set to work by granting new skins to pieces ranging from vintage and modern furniture to careworn car seats.
The brothers Antonius are 35-year veterans of the carpet-cleaning craft who have a skilled staff of technicians on hand to meet each appointment. Your pile-pillaging odyssey begins with a 15-minute carpet evaluation. Then, one of several cleaning methods is deployed, depending on your dirt's modus operandi. Steam desoils deep below your carpet's buttery crust, and an absorbent powder extraction eliminates drying time. The process evicts carpet-dwelling critters such as dust mites, while creating a healthier environment for invited beasts, such as dogs and ferrets that know how to squeak to the tune of "The Star-Spangled Banner." Call ahead for an appointment.

The crew doesn’t just clean carpets—they strive to keep them clean with disinfectants and protectors that guard against bacteria and blow a high-pitched whistle to ward off filthy dogs.
