The techs from Waterworks Pressure Cleaning travel throughout Atlanta with earth-friendly solutions and powerful pressure-cleaning equipment in tow. They blast homes and businesses with jets of water to wash away layers of grime, revealing the sparkling surfaces beneath. This process also removes mildew, stains, and the creepy shadows that keep you up at night.
Visitors to Scarlett's Retreat Day Spa & Boutique aren't sure if they've stepped back in time or onto a movie set. Surrounded by ornately patterned furniture, fireplaces, and classic portraits, they receive spa treatments in a late 19th-century home. Southern hospitality is a common thread between the decor and the service—the aroma of mint juleps drifts from mani-pedi stations, and roses infuse foot soaks and body wraps with flowery scents. A Victorian tub helps preserve the art of bath rituals, an antiquated practice that once signified opulence, much like installing a subwoofer on your riding saddle. Today, the spa's Georgia Sweet Tea tub ritual steeps bodies in tea and brown sugar to inspire total serenity.
The certified massage therapists and aestheticians prioritize natural ingredients; blueberries, rosemary, and cucumber infuse facials and peels, and the boutique carries products from glo minerals and Éminence Organic Skin Care for clients to take home, alongside robes and handmade neck pillows. For prolonged bouts of relaxation, packages pool services into themed combinations appealing to both men and women. For example, the Mister Butler package features a massage, an aromatherapy tub ritual, and a complimentary cigar and liqueur.
In 1993, after years as a tech in the carpet cleaning industry, Gregory Cole founded Pro Carpet as a one-stop shop providing the best carpet-cleaning practices he had learned during his career. Gregory's team, which now numbers more than 30 techs, begins each carpet-cleaning service with a thorough walk-through, during which customers can point out specific soiled areas before the techs evaluate carpets for their levels of dirt, stains, and rainbow sprinkles. As they begin to clean, they employ steam-based cleaning and stain-specific products, such as the company's proprietary enzyme-based pet-stain formula, to remove odors and soils.
Pro Carpet's expertise also extends beyond carpeting, tackling upholstery and area rugs with the same thoroughness. They can also be called upon to repair water damage, clean office cubicles, and sweep dust and allergens from inside air ducts with professional-grade tools that improve air quality.
Authentic Pine Floors offers a host of unique and eye-teasing heartwood flooring options. Valued for its strength and not its operatic singing voice, heartwood is fashioned from the dead or dormant center of a tree, giving it a higher density and durability. Authentic Pine Floors also operates their own manufacturing facility, where they recycle beams from old distilleries and warehouses into antique heart-pine flooring. Remodel kitchens with 5 1/8-inch or 7-inch-wide slats of reclaimed heart pine ($8.33/sq. ft.), or 6-inch clear-yellow pine ($2.05+/sq. ft.), or beautify foot highways with wide-plank oak. Homeowners can also bedeck dining rooms with a sampling of finished flooring, or opt for Authentic Pine's hand-distressed prefinished woods, which are enriched with a rubdown of oil that gives floors an aged look usually reserved for sepia-toned home movies.
With more than 10 years of experience under the collective belt, Maxi Shine’s cast of carpet cleaners relieves beleaguered homes of the burden of dirt-riddled carpets. Floor physicians show up by appointment, ready to examine carpets for coffee spots, traffic patterns, and condiment ghost residue to determine the most effective cleaning methods and earn the carpet's trust. Using pet- and eco-friendly cleaning products, problem areas are sprayed to treat spots and alleviate stains, before a combination of high-powered steam and detergent is used to evict soil from its grimy, carpet-oppressing throne. After a reinvigorating rinse removes harmful residue, dry extraction returns soppy floors to their natural desiccant purity and state of snuggly-ness. Maxi Shine prides itself on its friendly and efficient approach to carpet cleaning, assuring homeowners and apartment-dwellers a pleasant experience that allows them to quickly return to daily activities and fantasy classical composer leagues.
