The Paint Doctor’s employees won’t stand for shoddy workmanship. Their toolboxes only contain paint from Sherwin-Williams and Kwal, two of the most trusted names in paint and staining. The Paint Doctor, with a BBB rating of A+, uses quality products to make over interior walls, reinvigorate home exteriors, and stain decks. In addition to painting, they power-wash façades, mend crumbling drywall, and stripe parking lots.
For 34 years, Dick Kelly and his team of friendly sofa herders have collected fine specimens of used furnishings of all stripes and styles. The spacious showroom lays out an impressive spread of household accessories ideal for every room, such as a serpentine front sofa table ($165), or a Belmar sofa ($375), cushioning popcorn-chomping movie buffs and competitive couch-surfers alike. In addition to peddling cushiony recliners and sofas, Platte Furniture swaddles sleepers in a full set of colorful Egyptian-cotton bed sheets ($40–$50), decking out mattresses with flat sheets, fitted sheets, and two pillowcases. Like the sheets that graced King Tutankhamun's racecar bed, the more than 1,000 thread-count textiles soothe snoozers with the silky texture of a high-strength microfiber.
At Puttin’ on the Paint, brush-wielders peruse more than 300 mugs, plates, and figurines before selecting a piece to paint. Idea books and a rainbow of pigments inspire artists before items are decorated, covered with a coat of glaze, and placed in the kiln. Objets d’art are ready for pickup six days after firing, and can be immediately displayed on coffee tables, in trophy cases, or affixed to a chain hanging around your sweetheart’s wrist. Puttin’ on the Paint welcomes walk-ins and happily hosts parties for birthday boys and girls and pre-brides.
The technicians from A-SAP Carpet Cleaning rid air ducts of dust and allergens to ensure homes circulate clean air.

Before sweeping through rooms, the crew can move couches, chairs, and other furniture that hasn’t already been glued to the floor.
