Persistent ear infections were once a big problem for Lewis, VioClean owner Trung Nguyen's dog. Despite following the vet's advice, Lewis's eardrum blew out—a complication that led to a surgery with no explanation for the cause. At first, it didn't occur to Trung that the cause could be related to his carpets. After all, he worked for a carpet-cleaning company while in college, cleaned his own carpets regularly, and flossed them every night before bed. What could the explanation be?
Eventually, Trung looked to the environment inside his house for the answers, which led him to seek out natural cleaning products. Soon after making that change, he was inspired to leave his accounting career and start a carpet cleaning company using only non-toxic products. Now he and his techs offer cleaning services that range from floor cleaning to indoor environmental testing and mold remediation. Their Green Seal-certified products don't leave sticky residue behind, dry quickly, and are safe for children and pets.

Breaking through the fourth wall with terrifying visions to send tingles up even the sturdiest spines, the Witches Cottage live witchcraft and ghost show interacts with audience members for a chilling introduction to Salem’s supernatural side. Guests begin their journey in the theater’s lobby, mystically transformed into an old witch’s cottage complete with bubbling cauldron, pictorial remnants of the witchcraft trials of 1692, and a utility closet full of retired brooms. Guests will feel around in the foggy 75-seat theater for their seats and gasp in horror as a shadowy wendigo spirit slinks toward the audience. Rekindle entrepreneurial ambitions of opening a soul pawn shop as you witness a puritan entering into a dark pact with the devil, and then retire said dreams as you meet, face-to-face, the soulless entities of the underworld’s darkest corners. Throughout the show, Salem history and legend weave truth and myth into ghostly tales, blurring the lines of reality as if they were mere suggestions. The spooky performance ups its terror quotient during evening shows, with special nighttime events scattered throughout the week.

It's not unusual for technicians from Air Scrubbers Air Duct Cleaning to find toys, bottles, and paper in vents, along with the standard debris that blocks the passages. These objects aren't typical, but they do reflect a larger need for duct maintenance.

The technicians at Joe's Carpet Care have two methods or ridding carpets of dirt, dust, and allergens. For traditional steam-cleaning, they arrive with a powerful truck-mounted system that combines heated water and a blend of chemicals designed to destroy bacteria. The other method is a 100% organic procedure, which relies on natural enzymes found in fruits and vegetables to lift grime without impacting the air quality, which is ideal for households with kids, pets, or elderly residents. Regardless of which method they use, the cleaners follow a process that includes a pre-spray, agitation, and extraction to ensure that rugs emerge from the process clean and free of secret dust mite covens.
In addition to carpet cleaning, Joe's Carpet Care's staff can also freshen upholstery and banish pet odors left by the family musk ox. They also ease the process of swapping homes and businesses with move-in/out cleaning services.
