Solar Control Window Tinting swathes panes in professional films that diffuse sunlight and maintain even-keeled climates in cars, homes, and offices. Residential and commercial windows don sheer or dense privacy films from brands such as 3M and Piper, which block up to 99% of UV rays, trap warmth in the winter, and block heat in the summer, keeping energy consumption in check and environments comfortable. The coatings also protect art and upholstery from sun damage, and can reduce the number of flying shards should storms or soprano houseguests shatter windows.
Solar Control’s techs apply the same surface savvy to car windows, precision-cutting film to fit individual panes or covering vulnerable auto paint with weather-resistant urethane film. While technicians work on rides at the company's headquarters, drivers can settle into plush couches, peruse satellite TV channels, and join a free WiFi network in the waiting room.
Solar Control of Jackson coats windows with tintings that reduce heat and glare inside cars, homes, and businesses. Available in a range of shading options, the service gives drivers better visibility to see the road and homeowners better visibility to see that their children have been mannequins all along. Window films not only dampen the harmful effects of UV rays but also cool homes by blocking much of the sun's warmth, regulating indoor temperature and potentially lowering bills.
3M, the original patent holder on window film, supplies most of Solar Control’s stock and provides a lifetime warranty on all of its products. In addition to installing tinting, Solar Control's technicians clean residential and commercial windows and provide free estimates and consultations.
When Mike's Carwash first opened in 1948, it was one of only 18 carwash businesses in the United States. Today, the family-owned establishment keeps the 65-year-old tradition of gussying up automobiles alive at 42 locations throughout the Midwest. At each location, accommodating staffers stand by to assist customers during the cleaning process.

After the mixture of eight signature soaps de-grimes surfaces, 200-miles-per-hour gusts of hot air dry vehicles instantly. Mike's also offers specialty coats to give car exteriors and tires additional shine.

The ASE-certified techs at Automotive Service Group (ASG) coddle cars with fresh oil, filters, and visual inspections. After draining dingy, contaminated oil, techs replenish automotive arteries with up to 5 quarts of Valvoline conventional oil. Mechanics also swap out clogged oil filters for fresh lube sieves. Roadweary wagons then have their tire pressure and fluid levels checked, and techs top off any skimping solutions before performing a visual inspection and lubing the chassis when applicable.
