Rob Romero, owner of Oxymagic of Austin, flexes 20 years of carpet-cleaning experience to refresh anything from lightly soiled rugs to those in need of a deep clean. He and his staff wield only biodegradable, non-toxic products that are safe for use in homes with children and pets. Their cleaning process incorporates very little water, so most treatments dry within one to two hours of application.
For more than 25 years, The Steam Team has dispatched crews to residential and commercial sites to clean up and make repairs. The company's insured technicians often begin by hauling out hot-water-extraction systems that use steam to remove embedded dirt. While they're at it, the techs can also clean upholstery and leather, refinish hardwood floors, and clear air ducts of dirt and crawling action heroes. The team even repairs damage caused by fire, wind, and hail. The Steam Team does all this using biodegradable, nontoxic products that are safe for humans and pets.
Beneath the Colorado sun, Jason Ballard stands holding a hammer, looking upon the half-finished home before him. As a green builder, Ballard takes pride in constructing homes designed for health and efficiency, but unfortunately, local suppliers often don’t have the products to match his passion. The dilemma prompts Ballard and a few friends to wonder: "What if we could get all the materials we're looking for under one roof?" Driven by this question, the founders of TreeHouse came together—some interested in sustainable building, some interested in cutting toxins out their lives, some fascinated by the money saved through energy efficiency—to amass an inventory of products that they would use or already were using in their own homes. The store's material experts score every item to meet rigorous health, performance, and sustainability standards, curating a catalog that ranges from insulation made of recycled denim to housewares made from bamboo veneer. Additionally, TreeHouse's home-improvement gurus demonstrate products at education stations, and host classes and events to teach DIY-minded homeowners how to undertake anything from remodels to digging a moat around the garage.
Magic Carpet Care's owner has been serving Austin for more than 35 years, combining that experience with state of the art truck-mounted steam-cleaning equipment to clean carpets. All technicians are trained and professional, and tackle all sorts of blemishes in the home. In addition to carpet cleaning, they also offer tile and grout cleaning, upholstery cleaning, and carpet stretching and repair.
Whereas some companies simply use hot water to clean carpet, Chem-X's equipment blows past water's boiling point and cleans with steam that's been heated up to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. By cleaning with steam, the trained techs can penetrate deep into carpets to remove even the most tenacious dirt and stains without having to worry about over-wetting walkways or accidentally installing an indoor pool. And when these grime-fighters aren't freeing carpeting from the shackles of dirt and grime, they can be found cleaning upholstery, tile and grout, or area rugs.
