Led by Brian Baker, a 22-year painting veteran, the contractors at Bravo Painting, Inc. give homes and residential spaces a bright, new gloss, and thus a reason to stop pinning For Sale signs on each other’s backs. The contractors paint interiors and exteriors with equal parts professionalism and finesse, revitalizing faded colors and covering up blemishes to increase a building’s aesthetic and resale value. The team also offers pressure washing and small drywall repairs as well as concrete and wood-staining services, which can vivify patios, garages, and pool decks.
The licensed pest-control technicians from Florida Pest & Lawn shoo away a wide range of critters such as termites, bedbugs, ants, or rodents from inside and outside homes. The pest-control team takes its orders from Richie Kidwell, an industry veteran who learned from his father Fred, also a pest-control specialist, that bugs require more stern evacuation measures than a polite cough or a cease-and-desist letter. On each visit, a team member makes sure that no bug slips through cracks by performing treatments on both the interior and exterior of the home, inspecting and spraying popular pest hangouts such as around appliances, bathroom fixtures, windows, and garbage cans. To ensure that colonies don’t return, the technician also sprays a six-foot barrier around the home’s exterior, which effectively keeps all but 6’1” bugs at bay.
In addition to their pest banishing specialty, the team trims and cares for lawns and shrubs to keep yards healthy and verdant, wielding environmentally friendly products to fertilize plants or snuff out unwanted weeds.

Unsatisfied with the hassles of large-scale soap distribution, Karen focused on building a community presence with hands-on soap-making classes at her studio. With the advent of fruiting citrus, Karen plans to infuse her upcoming batches with grapefruit, tangerine, and whatever other scents strike her fancy.
