Exterminators draw upon an array of critter-discouraging services, including specialized treatments for termites and bedbugs as well as nonchemical alternatives when appropriate. To boost dwellings' defenses in the long term, Reeves' team also offers moisture control and insulation installation, blanketing attics, basements, and crawlspaces with asbestos-free, polyencapsulated warmth.
Operating in the spirit of Sam’s Club, Buy In Bulk House Cleaning offers customers the chance to save on housecleaning services by buying in large quantity. The company’s trained cleaning technicians whip through all areas of the house, using eco-friendly cleaning products upon request and tailoring each appointment to the needs of the homeowner. The individual price of cleaning sessions decreases with the more you buy, which means a package of one million sessions will cost approximately the same as one bottle of Ajax.
For more than 30 years, independently owned and operated Chem-Dry's have provided a range of scrub-down services, from professional home and business cleaning to upholstery restoration. Central Chem-Dry carries on this tradition in the Nashville area, sending a friendly grime-fighter technician to rid houses of messy malcontents. Techs revivify dingy carpets with The Natural, Chem-Dry’s proprietary, nontoxic cleaning solution, and Legacy Cleaning system. The system uses less water than traditional steam cleaning, thereby encouraging speedier drying times of 1–2 hours. Upholstery-cleaning services also harness the power of The Natural cleaning system, lifting away dirt and allergens as easily as John Henry lifted a hammerhead shark. Beyond basic cleaning, Chem-Dry’s dedicated service technicians are also available for commercial cleaning.
The dry-cleaning specialists at Max Precision Cleaning Enterprise maintain a kindly rapport with articles of clothing and the customers who bring them in. Rather than subject fragile garments to the rough-and-tumble of thrashing washers, delicates are carefully analyzed to determine the proper course of action, with meticulous by-hand cleaning administered when necessary. The experts who staff each location are similarly conscientious about the earth and the humans who inhabit it, introducing environmentally helpful measures, including reusing plastic garment bags as waste-can liners, into their cleaning protocols whenever possible and allowing each location to double as a Salvation Army drop-off site for clothing donations.

A helpful staff of skilled furnishing experts assists shoppers in picking out thoughtful gifts or the perfect item to accent an existing space.
Artists-to-be needn't have a Guggenheim Fellowship to enter the cozy doors of Third Coast. Walking in, most experience a rush of creativity at the sight of exposed-clay figurines, bare dinnerware, and a fully clothed staff. Once a piece-to-be-masterpieced has been selected—be it a plate, vase, coffee mug, martini glass, piggy bank, Buddha, or bust of Elvis—decorators can begin applying base coats to their evolving ceramic canvas. Those who suffer from painter's block can consult Third Coast's bountiful idea books, stencils, and stamps, or resolve it the old-fashioned way by pacing the studio floor with a corncob pipe. All the finished pieces are then set aside to be glazed and fired later by the studio staff. Your objet d'art will be ready for pickup in a week. Each brushwielder will be assessed a modest $6 studio fee along with the price of whichever starting piece they select ($6–$40 depending on size).
