In the curtained-off confines of a photo booth, revelers adjust a digital screen’s controls, then mug for the camera wrapped in feather boas, eyes obscured behind sunglasses.

The company also draws on connections to Comfort Limo, Tramontana Photography, and other area businesses, matching hosts with party essentials, such as guests who can put their hands in the air for the entire duration of an event.

When Linda and Brian Sayre started Sayre Carpet Care, their goal was not to be the biggest cleaning company, or the cleaning company that uses the flashiest giant squirt guns, but, instead, to be the highest quality cleaning company. Today, Sayre Carpet Care dependably purges carpets of accumulated dust, dirt, and stains, engendering customers’ trust by expertly revitalizing homes. Linda takes orders and runs the books while Brian heads a staff of IICRC-certified technicians. Once teams arrive at a home, the powerful engine of a truck-mounted Hydramaster machine heats and pressurizes water, which is then fired into carpet fibers along with a specially treated cleaning solution. The water is then extracted, pulling with it any trapped dirt, stains, and allergens while softening carpet fibers and extending their lifespan. Brian and Linda can also lend their staff’s cleaning talents to tile and grout, as well as the carpeting of cars, RVs, and boats.
