Drawing on skills accrued over the course of nearly three decades in business, the skilled techs at Big Foot Carpet Cleaning brighten shag with commercial-grade truck-mounted cleaning equipment. Powered by bruising exterior motors, the cleaning gear harnessing the power of superheated steam and hungry vacuums to whisk away evidence of spilled food, grimy footprints, or attempts to make your own paint. In addition to their cleansing prowess, technicians are also available for free estimates prior to undertaking any job.
In addition to the standard cleaning process described above, Big Foot Carpet Cleaning is also ready to tackle more complex jobs. To combat truly heinous stains, they'll occasionally bust out the RX-20, whose three-jet system pulls up moisture with five distinct vacuum heads. The unit makes 250 complete rotations per minute, much like a rotisserie chicken cooked by an extremely hungry person. Crews can also use their high-powered equipment to rehab upholstery, clean an area rug, or nix dirt from dingy tile and grout.

Eric Wason had found working for larger companies less than satisfying. So after 13 years of taking orders, in 2007 Wason decided it was time to venture out on his own. "I think for most people, it's kind of a dream to work for yourself, be your own boss. More than anything now, I try to build a relationship with my clients. People like to feel like you know who they are."
Today, Eric acts on this sentiment as he performs his duties for Lighthouse Door Company, his garage-door and gate-installation outfit. On the job, Eric and his servicemen rely upon high-end brands such as Wayne-Dalton, Amarr, and LiftMaster. Eric also leverages his specialization is in custom carriage-style doors—especially those he can create from scratch—when performing installations and repairs. "I've always been mechanically inclined,” says Wason, citing early life experiences in shop classes and other creative environments. Branching off from this, Eric is also a certified green builder, which means he uses green products whenever possible and even offers referrals for eco-friendly house building.
Though there's something cathartic in his ability to stand back, take pictures, and admire his completed work, Eric's real sense of pride stems from contributing to the very community in which he was born. "I have a lot of roots here, and I plan on keeping it that way. I love Monterey and Santa Cruz, the ocean 10 minutes way, the mountains, the snow's four hours away. Couldn't ask for more."

Since brothers Aaron and Evan Steed founded Meathead Movers as high schoolers in 1997, they’ve earned accolades for their prompt service and professional demeanor while handling local and long-distance moves. Every able-bodied employee must pass written and oral testing and attend the Meathead University continuous-training program, which has resulted in a breakage-to-move ratio that is eight times lower than the national average.
The success of Meathead Movers has allowed it to expand into other services including storage and packing. Princess Packers provides premove packing services, allowing clients to focus on more important roles, such as running errands or preparing emotionally unstable pets for a new home. It also donates $1 for every box packed to the Cinderella Fund.
