Conceived by Las Vegas restaurateur Mark DiMartino, Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery evokes Ireland by way of Vegas, with waitresses dressed in plaid mini kilts shouldering trays of chilled beer and pub fare. Like an enchilada stuffed with four-leaf clovers, the eatery’s Irish nachos interpret a south-of-the-border classic in a Celtic way, slathering potato chips in cheese sauce and seasoned ground beef; alternatively, pot roast and vegetables simmer traditionally in the Olde Dublin Irish stew’s Guinness-infused beef stock. Barkeeps pour a full bar’s worth of wine, cocktails, and beer, which surfaces in bottles, bombers, and multi-brew mixes such as the Blue Moon and Guinness combination. High-definition TVs glow with a ceaseless parade of professional and college baseball, basketball, and hockey, and live bands add to the entertainment smorgasbord on Monday nights.
America Carpet & Tile Cleaning's experienced staff members soapily restore dulled and grungy floor-bound surfaces with modern cleaning systems. Fiber refresheners use truck-mounted hot-water extraction systems to remove dirt and other debris from within the carpet, eradicating stains, bacteria, and toddler-hidden mud pies. Carpet cleaners can scour any carpeted room ($0.20 per square foot) or rooms that require heavy furniture to be moved prior to cleaning, including beds, dressers, and to-scale Stonehenge replicas ($0.25 per square foot).
When Susan Cantone took over her brother’s carpet-cleaning business in 2003, she dubbed it Cantone II Carpet Cleaning to signify a new beginning. Her daughter, office manager Sonia, has been busy ever since, scheduling appointments for the two-man carpet-cleaning crew, which ousts stains with a rotary machine and dry-foam cleaner. This dry foam penetrates carpet down to the padding to lift stains, and the machine inhales vast amounts of debris and dirt before looking to the side and coughing politely.
Carpets dry in less than two hours, compared to the four hours it takes after steam extraction and the day and a half it takes after soaking rugs in dishwasher detergent. The machine also scours tile and grout, purifies upholstery, and strips and waxes floors.
After John Gartner graduated from the University of Kansas with a bachelor's degree in microbiology, he was bound for the floor. As a professional floor cleaner, that is. Gartner uses his microbiology expertise to bust stains and grime with Major Floor Care, a more-than-40-year-old company. Before taking on a new client, Gartner comes over for a complimentary consultation, during which he checks out carpets to determine the right treatment plan and products. He then uses a special hot-water-extraction method gentle enough to use on all carpet types but strong enough to take on an open-mouthed bearskin rug. Gartner is certified by the IICRC, an institute that regulates and improves carpet-cleaning standards and provides educational materials so its members can stay up to date on the latest cleaning technology.
