Clean Response LLC's fabric-savvy cleaners, overseen by veteran dirt demolisher Brad Gouveia, specialize in scouring upholstery, rugs, and carpets, freeing them of ground-in grime. Carpet technicians employ van-mounted steam cleaners to powerfully blast away smudges, and rug specialists tend to delicate wool, silk, or other natural fibers with gentle cleansers that, unlike stronger chemicals, won’t cause the colors to fade or develop human characteristics. Cleaners further harness the power of water pressure to rid exterior surfaces of stains or graffiti, flush pet stains and odors from carpeting, and extract well-entrenched dirt from tile grout. Brad sees to the satisfaction of his customers by using equipment that promises shorter drying times, earning a certification from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration, and regularly complimenting their new haircuts.
Tile adds a clean, creative look to kitchens, bathrooms, and patios, but it's also an eco-friendly flooring material that requires no harsh chemicals or maintenance to keep it gleaming. Staff members at A World of Tile help clients to upgrade living spaces with this environmentally friendly alternative through in-house design consultations and a range of ceramic, stone, and specialty tiles. They amass products from across the globe, offering unique designs and SunTouch heated options that warm toes during cold winter months and prevent chihuahuas from shaking the whole year. During free hands-on workshops, staffers teach customers how to correctly install tile themselves or provide referrals to local contractors.
The inspiration for Angerman Hardwoods came in 1986, when a family friend asked Chuck Angerman if he'd help install hardwood flooring in a mountain home. Angerman agreed, and they set to work; when the project was done, he marveled at the beauty of the floor's wood grain, and at how the floor changed the home's entire aesthetic. He launched Angerman Hardwoods the following year with the help of his partner, Cynthia.
Today, the Angerman draws on decades of experience to bring out the beauty of hardwoods. Specialists sand floors using Bona dust containment sanding equipment that virtually eliminates airborne dust, and they refinish floors using a waterborne polyurethane that gleams for up to eight years. They also install all-new hardwood, bamboo, laminate, and cork flooring. They've strived to provide high-quality customer service in addition to high-quality products, earning an A+ from the Better Business Bureau.
Chocolate, tomato sauce, and gramophone grease are no match for the soft water steam-cleaning system used by The Carpet Masters. This truck-mounted contraption sanitizes as it steams, using cleaning solutions that are both pet- and eco-friendly. The company's technicians all have more than two decades of experience in the carpet care biz, and they know their way around upholstery cleaning, grout cleaning, and rescuing items from water damage, too.
The bonded and insured technicians at Clean House scrub homes top to bottom, using eco-friendly cleaning techniques and biodegradable cleaners. Starting below their feet, techs clean carpets to remove trapped dust and dirt that could ruin appetites during living-room picnics. Next, they can don rubber gloves to wash all domestic surfaces or nimbly climb ladders to clean windows, skylights, and gutters. Other Clean House services include day-to-day minutiae, such as in-home cooking, errand running, ironing, and changing dirty linens.
