Furniture Row Shopping Centers host four home-apparel stores in a single convenient location. The quartet of specialty stores—Sofa Mart, Oak Express, Bedroom Expressions, and Denver Mattress Co.—is designed to accommodate every room in the house. Espresso leaning shelves ($88) are fully caffeinated yet provide remarkably steady support for books, picture frames, and knickknacks. Soothe summer nights with a Perfect Harmony Isocool mattress pad ($69–$109) atop a new mattress set ($219+); top it off with an attractive brocade duvet set ($44–$68). A new lamp set ($148+) atop an end table ($118+) is a great way to encourage sofas to use more light when they read.
The techs at Rubbish Works make it easy to dispose of furniture, yard debris, and other refuse from homes and construction sites. That’s because each truck offers 16 cubic feet of space and arrives equipped with helpful tools such as a furniture dolly to lift heavy items and a sledgehammer to stir chamomile tea. While the techs are there, clients can also inquire about renting 20-yard roll-off bins and other smaller dumpsters.
The Freedom Carpet Cleaning technicians strip carpets of unseemly blemishes with hot-water extraction, a technique that uses a powerful mist of water in tandem with nontoxic solvents. The staff preconditions carpet before all deep cleaning treatments and can spruce up any service with Green Balance's eco-friendly products for an extra fee. They demonstrate the same diligence when dealing with upholstery, and throw extra elbow grease into erasing pet stains with Pet Zone's oxygen-based solution. Beyond floor-bound fibers, they team also escorts area rugs from clients' homes, performing a nine-step process of cleansing, hand combing, and drying rugs inside their shop's climate-controlled room. A final coating of DuPont Teflon carpet protector creates a force field around precious rugs, protecting threads against foot traffic and the tear stains that stem from milk spills.
From its modest origins in a garage, Appliance Factory Outlet & Mattresses has blossomed into a full-fledged appliance-vending behemoth with 14 locations throughout Colorado. The outlet compiles an enormous collection of handy household appliances from top-quality brands such as GE, Whirlpool, LG, KitchenAid, Sealy,and Tempur-pedic.
At each location, knowledgeable staffers shepherd patrons through sprawling showrooms, which collectively tout more than 150,000 pieces of equipment, including laundry machinery, kitchen appliances, microwaves, and macrowaves. They can special order items not in stock or tap into a stash of spare parts to repair busted apparatus. In addition to appliances, the staff can point patrons toward a fleet of mattresses and overstock items.
Since 1921, Art Cleaners' meticulous wardrobe washers have been giving stains and blemishes the boot with a full roster of dry-cleaning, laundry, and alterations services. Today, they harness the cleansing power of the GreenEarth cleaning system, which eschews harmful petroleum-based solvents in favor of liquid silicone derived from pure, natural sand. This eco-friendly solution thoroughly but gently expunges stains and grime from all types of clothing and furniture fabric before dissolving back into its natural states—water, carbon dioxide, and sand. Like a skunk that's studied Emily Post's Etiquette, it leaves behind no odor. The staff at Art Cleaners also picks up and delivers clients' laundry for free within Boulder County.
