Masters Professional Services’ owner, Dwayne Robert, was ahead of the energy-efficiency curve. He entered the industry more than 15 years ago and has seen insulation techniques evolve and others flop, such as stapling plastic sandwich bags over holes. Currently, he and his staff have a range of tools and methods at their disposal to keep homes energy efficient. Their methods include blown-in, roll, and batt insulation, as well as thermography. Throughout his professional career, Dwayne has also learned government cost-saving tactics, which he happily passes on to his customers. In addition to these energy- and money-saving practices, Masters Professional Services offers nonchemical pest control, HVAC services, and attic and crawl space restoration.
North Florida’s climate may be a dream come true for mildew and algae, but Reidlings Contractors of N.W. Florida have been saving homes from this flourishing flora for nearly a decade. The power-washing experts calibrate the pressure of their hoses for each job to keep from damaging the brick, cement, wood, or gingerbread siding that they’re scouring. This gentle approach, plus the use of appropriate cleaning chemicals, enables them to wash roofs without harming shingles. In addition to pressure washing, the jacks-of-all-trades take on nearly any home project, from garage-door installations and furniture assembly to minor electrical repairs or cleanings for gutters clogged by sticks and shooting stars with a bad sense of direction.
Results Personal Training enlists certified male and female trainers to piece together personalized fitness and nutrition plans that target time-specific fitness goals and allow for anytime onsite access. When paired with a client, each trainer crafts a program geared toward desired results—such as muscle gain or weight loss—and an ultimate end date, which can correspond with upcoming weddings or long-awaited preschool reunions. One-hour workout sessions then draw on an armory of free weights and Pilates balls to activate different muscle groups and prevent bodies from adapting to the routine. With trainers always on standby, clients can walk in on the hour to start a training program without an appointment and report to the center an unlimited number of times per week.
Before each patron’s first workout, an on-staff nutritionist outlines a healthy meal plan customized to his or her needs. Each menu includes the amount of calories that they should consume per meal and day, a list of foods that rev up metabolisms, and arguments to convince tomatoes that they are vegetables. Clients can visit their nutritionists at any point during their membership, and weekly analyses of their progress ensure that they are staying well on track to meet their health objectives.

Modern Cleaners’ professional garment buffers put the pleasure of unsullied outfits back in tantalizing reach with the power of their waterless refurbishing techniques. Let the full-service staff expurgate stains from various fabrics, outfits, and sentient suits of armor, restoring everything from a queenly two-piece dress ($14.50) to a sleeping king’s plush comforter ($24). Pants, skirts, and blouses ($5.25 each) need no longer live in terror of the spin cycle, and dapper three-piece suits ($14.50) and formal gowns ($22+) can recover their unpolluted aura of elegance from the grimy clutches of last call. Efficient same-day service for garments in by 9 a.m. ensures that all clean-pressed orders return promptly and in impeccable form. Modern Cleaners also restores garments hit by nature’s wrath, fixing up couture infused with smoke, drenched by floods, or dissolved by Melf’s Acid Arrow during last week’s LARP session.
Backed by a decade of experience, The Groundskeeper's owner Jeff Hendrix dispatches and oversees fully licensed and insured crews to tidy homes' leafy parlors. Lawn rangers will rove over up to half an acre of grass with their hungry mowers before cuddling up to fences, flower beds, and driveways with string trimmers. Then, they'll edge around pathways, ensuring that wayward weeds don't start spelling out rude messages on sidewalks, and blow away any mower residue, debris, or leaves for a span of flawless verdure.
