Caring for houses from the inside out, Triangle Home Services keeps families safe by protecting and beautifying where they live. The technicians specialize in pest protection, providing customized, year-round plans designed to not only rid homes of existing bugs, rodents, and wildlife, but also prevent them from returning to key your car. One of Triangle Home Services’ owners will personally visit a customer's house at the beginning and end of every long-term job. Pest control may be the technicians’ specialty, but they also help homeowners by performing basic handiwork as well as more intensive home-improvement jobs, including anything from painting walls to installing insulation or new granite countertops.
Amy McPeak is the founder of Housewives for Hire, but, more importantly, she’s a mother of three with a career and a busy schedule. Thus she understands how difficult it is for women like her to live a professional lifestyle while keeping their lives at home organized. To that end, Amy hired a staff of stay-at-home mothers to provide a number of helpful concierge services, such as grocery shopping, prescription pick-ups, personal assistance chores, and home maintenance services. Amy’s staff can do a number of tasks, ranging from helping to plan a party to organizing homes and carrying out day-to-day tasks. Housewives for Hire offers clerical and administrative help for businesses as well.
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.

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.
