Procare, a family-owned-and-operated company, has been freshening floors by evicting grime for more than 12 years. Its staff of trained dust busters will move up to three moderately sized (50 lbs. or less) pieces of furniture per room, then go to work annihilating pet messes, the grey of high-traffic areas, and ground-in LEGO helmets. Procare's carpet-cleaning process makes homes healthier by sucking and sanitizing carpets at a temperature of up to 275 degrees; high heat evicts mold and converts dust mites into angel tears, while the cloud of resulting steam ensures that bacteria flees forthwith. With pollutants piled on wagons headed West, homeowners will be able to enjoy a manifest destiny of healthier air within 2-6 hours.
When owners Nancy Kanter and Julie Byrne founded Clay Café more than 14 years ago, they wanted to establish a cozy, unpretentious environment where families could spend quality time pottery-painting and embarking on other art projects. Describing what they envisioned to the Columbus Dispatch, Byrne stated, “We kind of wanted a grandma kitchen—something homey.” At Clay Café, visitors might forget they’re not relaxing in their own homes amid the studio’s popular mismatched chairs, flower tablecloths, and resident father yelling at a sports game on TV. The hospitable owners invite guests of all ages to let their artist instincts run wild during open-ended potter-painting sessions, and they host an array of special events including baby showers and birthday parties.
