Featured on ESPN, MTV, the Today show, and numerous other media outlets, Fathead?s high-definition images of athletes, team logos, mascots, and stadiums turn vertical surfaces into full-fledged fan meccas. Unlike posters or framed photographs, the images? high-grade tear- and fade-resistant vinyl adheres directly to the wall without the need for nails or tape. The low-tack adhesive that backs each Fathead makes it easy to remove and relocate stars such as Tom Brady to any smooth surface, allowing his likeness to infuse game rooms with playoff excitement or act as a scarecrow during troublesome Baltimore Raven infestations. The store?s stock even goes beyond athletics, as Fatheads of musicians, cartoon characters, and artistic images add personalized flair to kids? rooms or living areas.
With the aid of safe, eco-friendly products, professional cleaners at Quality Carpet Care submit rugs to a five-step treatment that steams away debris while extending carpet life. The methodical approach begins with a vacuuming to take up particles such as pet hair, sand, and brain cells loosened during TV marathons. The crack team pre-conditions rugs before hot water surges through steam wands from a truck-mounted system. The steam, which reaches more than 200 degrees, sanitizes floors while zapping dirt, obliterating allergens, and scouring all cleaning residue. Techs then fluff fibers until they're as voluminous and soft as steam-cleaned puppies. Heavily trafficked rooms benefit from a protective coat that repels stains and discourages dirt from nesting deep into fibers.
In their white vans and red polo shirts, the technicians behind Augusta Carpet Cleaning travel to homes and businesses to clean carpets, rugs, and upholstery. Before they dig in, though, they throw open the back doors of their trucks to reveal HydraMaster equipment. They use its silver nozzles, attached to long blue tubes, to expunge odors, allergens, and stains with steam-cleaning techniques and distribute Scotchgard to protect carpets from future splotches. When they aren't purifying fibers, they purge tile and grout, clean air ducts, and restore abodes that have been flooded—they ask the resident, however, to fish out any trout beforehand.
