All of Superior Self Storage's units are individually alarmed, and the premises have video-surveillance cameras and security guards patrolling 24 hours a day. Opt for a 5'x10' storage space ($75+/month) and fill it full of one to two bedrooms' worth of Saran Wrap, or go for a more cozy 5'x5' space ($55+/month) to stow away boxes of winter wear and skis until snow season returns. You may also apply the value of this deal toward a larger storage space. Superior Self Storage also offers free truck rental, so you'll have a more convenient way to move your boxes than strapping them to the back of a penny-farthing.
Urban Dare Adventure Race is a fast-paced competition that challenges two-person teams to decipher clues, navigate the city, and perform playful stunts. A dozen trivia-based clues lead contestants to checkpoints all over Los Angeles, where they must use a camera to document their presence and, in some cases, the completion of challenges, such as scaling a wall or shooting hoops. In addition to running and walking, contestants may use public transportation to move from checkpoint to checkpoint, though taxis, cars, and bikes are off-limits. Races generally last less than four hours, and the winning team receives free entry in the Super Dare, a cruise-based take on the Urban Dare concept that features a $5,000 grand prize. Proceeds from the race are used to help battle breast cancer.
For more than 100 years, Emigh Ace Hardware has been equipping households and handypersons with a durable selection of tools, paints, and domiciliary goods. Helpful employees, some with more than 20 years of experience, can point shoppers toward the proper tools, while a koi pond and complimentary balloons and popcorn for kids add color and flavor beyond the usual hardware-store milieu. Customers may peruse popular name-brand paints like Clark + Kensington's paint and primer in one ($26-$36) or Benjamin Moore ($33.99+). Homeowners can invest in a Craftsman wrench set ($19.99) or scare away infiltrating ivy tendrils with a 30-inch leaf rake ($11.99). Air filters in assorted sizes ($4.49+) banish dust before future breaths, just as A-Maz Water Stain Remover ($7.99) eliminates mineral deposits, while the fall mums—like a jack-o'-lantern covered in fireworks—can keep gardens bright as they transition to the coming season ($1.99 for 4” flowers).
Common household pests such as ants, termites, cockroaches, flies, and spiders can carry up to 33 types of bacteria, including some that cause illness in humans. They can eat away at a building's framework, as well as a homeowner's ability to confidently sleep with his or her mouth open. This is why Terminix technicians aren't satisfied with simply eliminating current pest problems—they strive to also prevent future infestations, and they guarantee their ability to do so. Terminix team members know all the obscure places where pests like to hide: in water-heater closets, fireplaces, the centers of donuts, plumbing penetrations, and the weep holes in wood veneer walls. Their response to an infestation varies depending on the home's unique situation, but services may include sweeping away spider webs and wasp nests from the eaves of the home, setting up traps, dusting and spraying interior or exterior crevices that are prone to pests, and spraying around the home's foundation.
Even for companies with sunny offices, it'd be a stretch to boast that they have 250,000 windows to their name, but Alco Siding and Windows can honestly say that it does. Its factory-trained team has installed more than 250,000 windows throughout California and Nevada over the past two decades. The company also specializes in siding, with an arsenal of both vinyl and fiber-cement styles. Alco's services extend beyond those mentioned in its name, though, with skilled staffers who also can install decks, repaint home exteriors, and replace roofs with materials that make rain sound like a fun Civil War reenactment. To ensure happy customers, all their handiwork is backed by a satisfaction guarantee.
