CleanTeam dispatches cleaners to begrimed abodes to apply eco-friendly cleaning products over the course of a three-hour scouring session. The trained filth fighters don shoe covers upon request and face off against grunge with potent cleansers and powerful vacuums, slurping up dirt and discarded peanut shells scattered throughout residences. A 35-step cleaning process leaves no nook unscrubbed, starting with the sanitization of bathtubs, toilets, and underfoot tiles and then swapping out sponges to take on cluttered kitchen counters and gunk ingrained in microwaves.
The sounds of slap shots and blades carving the ice resound through Big Bear Ice Arena as it sets the stage for visitors participating in hockey, figure skating, and a host of other games. Hockey programs for kids and adults follow the rules and regulations set forth by USA Hockey, which allows slap shots but not checking or doing burnouts in a Zamboni. When pucks aren't careening from board to board, figure skaters can glide out onto the ice for programs that range from a Learn to Skate class to competitive team events. Less competitive patrons, meanwhile, can log their time on the ice through games such as bandy and broomball or casual open skates.
For interior designer Romanca Mohan of Rmspacez, even just starting a project is a multi-step process. First, she helps her client—a homeowner or renter, a restaurant owner, or an office tenant—draft a mission statement. (Romanca is a big believer in mission statements; her own mission, she says "is to make the world a beautiful place, using all human senses as references to ensure quality custom design.") Next, the client makes a "mind map" to hone in on key words and concepts, and to show where in their brain they've stashed gold coins. What follows is an organized system of brainstorming, goal building and review, and project planning—and that's before the makeover even starts.

Colorado Body Tech assembles fitness instructors, laser technicians, and clinicians to deploy their varied backgrounds for one purpose: to help clients lose weight. Some clients opt for fitness classes, or enlist the help of a personal trainer. Others sit down with the business's nutritional councilors to hash out meal plans. B12 shots and laser lipo, meanwhile, help folks lose weight more quickly than chartering a rocket and weighing yourself on the moon. Since folks tend to gain weight when stress floods their bodies with cortisol, Colorado Body Tech offers a slew of relaxing palliatives, including acupuncture and massage.
Though the aestheticians at Icon Salon Spa can do anything from a depilating wax to a soothing massage, they are best known for one thing: their color work. That's because owner and stylist Chadda Rhu is a master of corrective color work. She passes on the skills she's learned as a Redken Performing Artist so that her staff can expertly apply color and highlights or fix any hair emergency that comes through the door. For their color work, they rely on both traditional colors and glazes, which they use to target roots or weave through strands in precisely placed foil highlights. They then can trim off damaged ends with a cut that is both stylish and flattering, unlike a face tattoo of bacon.
