The technicians at 5 Star Window Detailing are a versatile bunch. In addition to sliding their squeegees across virtually any size and shape of window, they also spare homeowners the effort of polishing mirrors, cleaning ceiling fans, and removing hard-water stains from bathtubs. Services extend to home exteriors where the crew blasts away dirt from home exteriors during high-pressure washes.
The licensed and bonded technicians behind Clean Image Cleaning Services, Inc. polish windows, cleanse solar panels, and pressure-wash walls with filtered water. Before being used, the water runs through a purification system that extracts pollutants such as chemicals, minerals, and fish tears. When the cleaners aren't tidying homes and offices, they purge gutters, repair screens, and dust chandeliers and ceiling fans. In addition to their regular services, they also set up and take down Christmas lights during the holiday season.
In 2001, Carrie Rezabek Dorr's only venue for her Pure Barre workouts—a blend of dance, Pilates, and strengthening stretches—was the basement of an office building. Crowds drawn by Carrie's choreographing expertise and the infectious music of her routines necessitated expansion, however, and eight years later, Pure Barre spread its franchises to what is now more than 160 locations across the country, spurred by mentions in Glamour, Cosmopolitan, and Health magazines.
Pure Barre guides students through precise isometric movements that craft lean, not bulky, muscles. By flowing through scalable maneuvers that balance limbs against a ballet barre, physiques can lift and tighten traditional problem areas such as the thighs, abs, seat, and arms. The total-body workout is accessible to all fitness levels, and can help new mothers to regain their desired shape without leading the daycare's piggyback carpool. High-energy, intimate classes with small amounts of attendees ensure personalized adjustments and tips, allowing each guest to derive the deepest possible burn from the workout's alternating strength and stretch drills. Pure Barre also offers private barre-ties, DVDs, equipment, designer exercise apparel, and more.
Lucky Auto Detailing proves its commitment to earth-friendly practices by cleaning carriages with only biodegradable solutions, microfiber towels, and liquid wax. Each wash is waterless, a habit which conserves up to 30 gallons of water per car, or the exact amount needed to save a tree that’s dehydrated from crying. The center collects its services in five treatment packages, which range from a six-step regular wash to a full detail complete with doorjamb cleaning and a conditioning of vinyl or leather seats. And Lucky Auto Detailing doesn’t just cleanse cars, but protects them as well; the center’s sealant service prevents color from fading with a two-step process that shields paint with a copolymer concoction capable of projecting a "wet" finish for up to one year.
