The damage that pests can inflict upon a home is widespread: termites can eat away at a foundation, pests can ruin gardens and fixtures, and mosquitoes and spiders can make homeowners uncomfortable in their own backyard. The exterminators at Hannan Environmental Services nip these problems in the bud before their presence develops into a serious issue. Since 2001, the outfit has eliminated populations of these pests, as well as others such as silverfish, ants, and roaches, within homes' interiors and exteriors. Before applying termite treatment to a foundation or spraying the lawn, the team sizes up the scope of the job and offers clients an estimate entirely for free.
As its name suggests, Giveback2kids has one concern that takes precedence above all else: children. Serving the Treasure Coast, the newly hatched outreach program collaborates with small businesses and families around the neighborhood in an effort to snuff out local violence. That effort starts with the city's children, for whom Giveback2kids provides opportunities in education, community awareness, and even entertainment?all of which contributes to the organization's ultimate goal of helping youngsters develop not only academically, but socially and physically, as well.
Lisa Fasnacht loves to see people go outside and be active—so much so that her company's web address is its own call to action, GetOutsideandDoSomething.com. Then there's her company's Facebook page, where she's just as apt to plug excursions with the local Meetup group outside-adventure club as she is her own equipment rentals, which include use of outdoor gear such as bicycles, Trikkes, standup paddleboards, and camping equipment. She also leads guided kayak tours along the Treasure Coast's waterways, giving guests occasional glimpses of wildlife such as eagles suffering from male-pattern baldness.
Man and machine mingle at WadaWash, where the area’s only flex-service car washes incorporate automated exterior scrubs augmented by professional attendants trained in tidying up interiors. This express approach does not mean WadaWash cuts corners when it comes to water conversation: H2O is reclaimed, filtered, and sterilized after each use, and green soaps and waxes lend credence to the business’ eco-friendly agenda. Inside, a flickering television enraptures waiting eyeballs, and free WiFi enables guests to upload photos of their car’s freshly scrubbed exterior or photos of themselves watching car commercials on TV.
