Since becoming established in 1990, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles' workforce has constructed or renovated more than 350 homes for low-income families throughout 112 cities and unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. The organization relies largely on volunteer labor and donations of building materials, home decor, furniture, and appliances, which are used in building projects or sold at the ReStore. These sales not only help raise funds for building projects, but have also helped save more than five million pounds of reusable materials from ending up in local landfills.
Glass Doctor's uniformed technicians pride themselves on being able to fix any type of glass, whether it's for a home, vehicle, or storefront. For residences, they outfit windows and doors with low-emissivity glass panes that reduce glares, control room climates, and detract ultraviolet rays more effectively than outfitting your house in a T-shirt. Depending on the damage, they can mend windshield nicks during repair services or do a full replacement with original-equipment-manufacturer windshields, which sport a lifetime nationwide warranty at more than 300 locations. For customers that need a specific shape or style of glass, the staff can design, cut, and install custom mirrors, shower doors, and tabletop glass.
Beach Cities Floor Care and Carpet Cleaning cleanses floors coated in carpet, tile, and hardwood, as well as tackling upholstery, curtains, and auto interiors, with nontoxic, biodegradable solutions and powerful equipment. Among its fleet of sanitizing machines is the Rotovac Powerwand, which rakes rotating scrubbers over carpet fibers 1,500 times per minute—three times faster than the wand of a benevolent witch. The diamond sanders of Hawk floor machines skitter across rough marble, travertine, or limestone, leaving walkways as smooth as silk welcome mats in their wake, and the machines' self-contained spinners scrub natural stone. High-alkaline pretreatment paves the way for the Prochem Blazer XL, which sucks the solution along with all the grime it has trapped from tile and grout. The Beach Cities cleaning techs can also come to the aid of drowning floors at all hours with the company’s 24-hour flood service.
Every person has their own idea of the perfect mattress. Some like to shop by brand, others by the comfort level. Often, size is their most important factor, or its ability to dissuade monkeys from jumping atop it. With this in mind, each associate at Mattress Connection takes these variables into account when pairing customers with new mattress from top brands, such as Sealy Posturepedic and Simmons, in sizes that range from twin to king. They also help customers sleep more comfortably with memory foam pillows, which remember their spinal alignment and where dreams left off the night before.
