The carpet connoisseurs at GoodFellas Cleaning degrime, destain, and restore sheen to floors via expert cleaning services. Before steam cleansing, a rigorous vacuuming inhales rogue croissant crumbs and a pretreatment gets to work on pesky stains. GoodFellas' fiber aficionados annihilate dirt, dust mites, and unsightly blotches using a truck-mounted system that has 20 times the suction of handheld carpet-cleaning machines and 2,000 times the suction of a straw. After floors are squeaky clean, a protectant is applied in high-foot-traffic areas to repel oil- and water-based stains and buttered feet and then the carpet is deodorized. The entire process is safe and nontoxic, allowing babies, pets, and baby pet rocks to roll around on the rug postprocedure. This Groupon also gives customers 20 percent off additional services, including upholstery, tile, and grout cleaning.
When Layl McDill's daughters were little, she would carry small bricks of polymer clay in her purse for them to play with. Over the years, the pastime evolved into a serious profession for her. Forming ropes of the colorful, malleable material into millefiore canes, McDill honed her skills, creating patterns, pictures from the carefully sliced clay logs. With the help and support of her husband and fellow artist, Josh Blanc, Layl founded Clay Squared to Infinity in 1996, where today she not only creates and displays her own artwork, but also leads classes for clay-curious artists of all ages.
For more than three decades, Gregory’s Carpet Cleaning's technicians have traveled to homes and businesses to gussy up rugs and upholstery using as few chemicals as possible. They kick off the fiber-cleansing procedure by spraying spots with an activated conditioner to loosen soil and stubborn residue spawned from foot traffic and greased-pig contests. They then scour surfaces with a mixture of Fabronite and ProLiminator to brighten fibers and keep odors away.
