The floor technicians at Pro-Kleen smarten up shag and refine tile with a combination of industrial-age steam power and cutting-edge technology. After a free estimate nails down a firm flat rate, berber inspectors put rugs through an eight-step process that includes inspection and pretreating stains. A truck-mounted Rotovac 360 machine dissolves soil, grease, and spots with 180-degree water before a high-powered vacuum extracts the mix, leaving behind soft, allergen-free fibers and terrified Lego people. The process removes most of the water it uses to saturate the fibers, reducing drying time to a few hours. All jobs are guaranteed and backed up with the promise to reclean any unsatisfactory jobs or refund the total cost.
Bruno’s Bath House elevates the dog-boarding experience by housing pups inside plush suites that will remind them of home. Two times a day, room service peeks in, checking to make sure beds are comfy and bowls are brimming with filtered water. Dog-loving caregivers oversee dogs so that each pet receives ample attention as they gambol across the indoor and outdoor play areas or nap on communal couches. This attentive treatment carries over into Bruno’s Spaw, where dogs receive baths with plush add-ons such as aromatherapy, massage, and Pawdicures. Edible and wearable doggie accessories are also available at Bruno’s Bistro and Boutique.
Skyview Aviation promotes its fondness for flight with a pod of professional pilots at the helm. Passengers in search of the picturesque will take off in a Cessna 172P on a sky-borne journey that first flits over Port Aransas beaches before soaring all the way down to North Padre Island. Along the way, passengers will also be presented with a nimbus's-eye view of the Lexington Aircraft Carrier, a World War II naval behemoth buoyed in Corpus Christi Bay. If flyers live close to any of the routed stops, pilots can steer off-course to float over personal domiciles, providing a peaceful yet petite view of homes and impromptu checkups on the babysitter.
Spartan Defense operates out of Corpus Christi Pistol and Rifle Club, which has an outdoor pistol range.
The staff rents semi-automatic handguns.
The instructors at Spartan Defense, who hold certifications as NRA-certified firearms and personal protection instructors and TDPS-certified handgun instructors, focus on helping students obtain the requirements necessary to apply for their concealed-handgun licenses through qualifying classes. They can also tailor their instruction to develop more specific marksmanship skills during NRA-sanctioned classes and private lessons. In addition to firearms training, instructors also teach unarmed self-defense, drawing upon multiple traditions such as aikido and Japanese jujitsu.
