Blank teapots, plates, mugs, and figurines line the shelves at I Made This!, awaiting finishing touches guided by the artful eyes of do-it-yourselfers. The studio carries all of the materials necessary to complete each piece, including paints, glazes, and a 1,800-degree kiln, where pieces of pottery, like really good barbecue or really bad pizza, requires about 20 hours to cook. A team of knowledgeable employees stays on hand to answer questions regarding the glazing and firing processes. The ideal activity for a range of ages and groups, painting pottery at I Made This! can enliven a sunny Saturday morning or a ladies' night out with a customer-provided bottle of wine, with the option of reserving a private party room.
A family whose love for flora spans three generations, the Stadlers started their plant-growing endeavors back in 1932 when Paul Stadler began gardening for clients in Georgetown after emigrating from Switzerland. Soon, they opened up a small landscaping-and-gardening center, and today—more than 75 years later—Stadler Nurseries has grown to populate 340 acres of fertile land where they propagate native plants, landscaping shrubs, trees, roses, and more than 700 varieties of perennials. A staff of horticulturists and enthusiastic green thumbs helps visitors navigate the vast greenhouses and outdoor gardens, offering tips on how to prune leaves, fertilize soil, and teach plants how to roll over on command.
Backed by a litany of guarantees, Aire Serv's climate techs install, repair, and tune up air-conditioning and heating systems. They replace broken units or units throwing temperature tantrums with Trane- and Carrier-brand equipment and execute mechanical and electrical maintenance on all varieties of brands. Keeping air conditioners and furnaces running smoothly increases energy efficiency and can lower utility bills. The crew further improves that efficiency, along with air quality, through duct-cleaning services. By installing clean filters or adding electronic air cleaners to the home, they greatly diminish the amount of dust, mold, and allergens swimming through the home's air, which can cause headaches and respiratory problems. In step with green technology, they also implement geothermal heating and cooling systems as well as solar and wind systems.
What began as a one-person startup in Prince Georges county has grown into a 24/7 operation of three impeccably trained pressure-washers and structural cleaners, traveling throughout the Maryland, Northern Virginia, and DC areas to render homes and businesses spotless. ETB Solutions' technicians tackle an enormous range of cleanup and maintenance services, from cleaning carpets and upholstery, to power-washing homes and flushing out air ducts with eco- and pet-friendly products. And the techs can customize regular service programs to fit each home and budget, with scheduled cleanings each day, week, month, or in-law visit. The cleaners also connect with insurers to clean up after disasters such as floods and septic back-ups, and work hand-in-hand with builders during construction projects to ensure buildings are free from mold.
