People have many reasons to be wary about having their carpets professionally cleaned. Fortunately, the staff at Safe-Dry of Birmingham have figured out a workaround for just about all of them. First, they've swapped harsh solutions for one made from biodegradable, natural ingredients that are safe for kids and pets. This solution lifts away dirt with carbonated bubbles that penetrate deep into the pile, leaving the carpet free of dirt-attracting residue. And unlike traditional carpet cleaning solutions, which can take hours and hours to dry, this solution dries in just under one. The licensed and bonded team back up their work with a money-back guarantee, and strives to arrive on time for every appointment.
Girl Friday: Your Private Concierge likes to play hard to get. You have to bid if you want the personal assistant's time—and you may get turned down. Potential clients can call, text, or fill out an online form to bid, which includes the task they need accomplished and their preferred price. The private concierge services span practically every chore and errand you can imagine: spending time with or preparing a meal for an elderly parent, grocery shopping, babysitting, overseeing home repairs, and even planning a party or creating a business PowerPoint. If the personal concierge deems a client's bid appropriate, she will accept the job; if she doesn't, she will negotiate with customers.
Birmingham native David Kanter, owner of Guarantee Carpet Cleaning and Dye Company, brings more than 30 years of experience to each textile he treats. The business sprouted in New Orleans, where he learned to remove odors from area rugs and restore a carpet’s beauty following water damage and buffalo stampedes. After Hurricane Katrina devastated the community, Kanter moved back to Birmingham, where friends and family welcomed his ability to erase ink, ketchup, and ground-in dirt from their floors and furniture. In addition to cleaning and scotch-guarding, Kanter can dye carpets to match clients' décor.

The aestheticians at Pamp-A-Roma give hands and feet the star treatment. They trim and buff nails during mani-pedis, before applying standard OPI polishes, glazes, or chip-resistant Shellac. They administer some out-of-the-ordinary treatments as well, such as a jelly pedicure. During this service, feet and toes dip into a pool of gelatin that warms muscles. Additionally, Pamp-A-Roma's team isn't confined to a single location. They travel to homes for spa parties and treat birthday girls and guests to spa services such as mani-pedis.
