After a career as a highway patrolman and corrections officer, David Masters opened Stat Cleaning Services as a side business in 1985. David attributes the business's success to meticulous work and personal attention, two qualities he says scored him a job cleaning 200,000 square feet of carpets in two related office buildings. That was the job that spurred David to retire from police work to focus on carpet cleaning full-time.
In each session, a two-person team purges carpets using a truck-mounted system that brings only an extractor and a connecting hose into the client's home. The extractor forces steam between carpet fibers to pull out deeply embedded debris, such as pet hair, crumbs, and long-lost Scrabble tiles, leaving carpets dry less than two hours later. The same heat extraction also purifies tile and upholstery. A special enzyme solution is also available for purchase, which works to break down the bacteria created by pet stains and prevent their odor from lingering.
Each cleaning team checks the quality of their work and ensures customer satisfaction before leaving the premises. In the event that a problem does occur, customers need not worry about wading through tiers of customer service reps, managers, and machine intelligences for a resolution; David answers almost every phone call himself.

For nearly a decade, Ivey Landscaping's licensed lawn-care professionals have kept commercial and residential lawns looking fresh, lush, and bountiful. Its maintenance professionals review each lawn individually and then design a custom maintenance plan to keep the yard looking as fresh and green as the Incredible Hulk after a nap. Its services range from fertilization and weed control to mowing, aerating, seeding, and pruning. For lawns in need of a complete face-lift, Ivey's in-house landscape designer comes out to assess the grounds and provide designs in 2-D or 3-D renditions. The design services include lighting, irrigation, outdoor living areas, and installation of mature shrubs and trees. As an added perk, new maintenance customers benefit from complimentary curbside leaf collection, which prevents unsightly leaves from piling up and ruining a home's curb appeal or welcoming roving packs of leaf-jumping children.

Her name is Lisa Ryan, but everyone calls her Matty––an appropriate nickname considering she's the all-knowing force behind Matty's Mattress Warehouse. "I'm it!" she says with a proud laugh. "I move every one of the mattresses, talk to every person about their needs. Just me and a guy with a truck." She's a big fan of the more intimate service she can provide in her own store, especially after having managed huge retail chains. "I used to do furniture––always problems. Here, it's low overhead. Low hassle." And for Matty's customers, that also means lower cost. About 60% of Matty's business comes from referrals, so there's clearly something enchanting about her process. When asked what brings people in the doors—whether it's word of mouth or high-powered magnets—her response is quick. "What's not to love? You come in, get a new bed, you go home, and you sleep well." Her warehouse boasts a wide selection of mattresses ranging from Easy Sleep pillow-tops to orthopedic styles from Spring Air, but the pride of her showroom is the popular Bed Boss brand. These mattresses are forged from elastic memory foam that's infused with heat-dissipating, sustainable bamboo fibers, and they cost about one-third as much as similar mattresses from competing brands. Though Matty loves helping clients find a perfect mattress, the moments she cherishes the most are those when her mattresses become a game changer, when they really make a difference in a customer's life. "There was a guy who had back surgery," she explains. "He hadn't slept well in 18 months––been to the doc for insomnia. Sold him a mattress and he came back a week later. He was elated. It was really validating."
From floor to ceiling, the shelves of Crack'd Pot are lined with possibilities. There, more than 500 shapes of raw ceramic bisques are ripe for the picking. Available in 10 different categories, varieties range from dinnerware and necklaces to cookie jars. The studio's collection of glazes, available in a myriad of hues, matches the depth of the selection of provided brushes, sponges, and stamps. The staff allows guests to take as much time as they'd like to use these tools in creating their pieces—guests pay a flat fee rather than an hourly or lightyearly fee. Finished products are ready in approximately a week—glazed and fired by the staff—which makes all pieces food-safe.
