As their company’s name implies, Speed Dry’s technicians understand that when homes have been damaged by water or fire, the restoration process needs to begin immediately. This is why they offer 24-hour emergency response for residential and commercial properties, issuing a free estimate for all jobs before diving in. After using thermal infrared imaging to show any hidden damage or ghosts stuck behind walls, team members remedy water or fire damage, then return rooms to pristine condition with reconstruction services.
Speed Dry also offers mold remediation, during which technicians carefully quarantine the affected area to prevent the spread of spores throughout the home, thereby negating the potential threat of a crashed UFO in the backyard. In addition to invasive repairs, customers can commission cosmetic improvements such as carpet and tile cleaning.

Dance shouldn’t be formulaic. That’s why at Studio Tropa, owner Jerry Maese leads a dynamic, multi-cultural team of dance instructors that help students build better bodies. Six days a week students rock and rollick to sultry Tropa international sessions and the Latin-inspired grooves of Zumba classes. Instructors also get pulses racing with Tropa funk, their self-devised take on hip-hop. Students are encouraged to bring water, wear comfortable clothing, and sport athletic shoes that have good arch support and aren’t covered in Vaseline. Studio Tropa was recently selected to be a part of a promotional video release in conjunction with the release of the film, The Great Gatsby and was also part of the Galleria Mall flashmob for the release of the Zumba Rush Xbox Kinect video game.

You name it, and the staff at MBM Cleaning will probably clean it, and they’ll do so using nontoxic chemicals and state-of-the-art techniques such as negative air pressure and HEPA filtration. In addition to tidying up carpets, air ducts, vents, and chimneys, the NADCA- and VSMR-certified technicians also offer handyman services to repair HVAC systems and install insulation.
