Locally owned for almost 90 years, Art Cleaners uses eco-friendly methods to press and launder shirts, pants, dresses, bedding, drapes, rugs, and more. The shop's GreenEarth Cleaning System gently de-dirts even the most delicate fabrics with liquid silicone—a natural, odorless by-product of sand that keeps finery looking new longer than most conventional cleaning methods, such as pickling dresses in brine. With the help of Art Cleaners' services, Oxford shirts can retain crisp collars (starting at $2.60 per shirt) and seasonal pieces like Santa suits and Santa astronaut suits can ditch the mothball fetor for $9 to $10 a piece. If you're far too busy to either drop off or put on clothes, Art Cleaners can arrange for free pick-up and delivery.
The locally minded owners of Carpet Wise hardly keep their family business under the rug. Providing personalized service to Longmont residents has made them a regional go-to name for carpet, vinyl, and tile flooring needs over the past 20+ years. As one of 3,500 members of Flooring America Stores co-op, the company's team of professionals not only dotes on residential floors–they also provide low-cost services, thanks to its collective buying power. During visits, Carpet Wise flooring experts measure rooms free of charge and offer design tips to ensure floor treatments—from trusted brands such as Gibraltar, Shaw, and Stainmaster—complement homes precisely. Hardwood and laminate flooring, as well as a selection of designer area rugs, can also update rooms.
The inspiration for Angerman Hardwoods came in 1986, when a family friend asked Chuck Angerman if he'd help install hardwood flooring in a mountain home. Angerman agreed, and they set to work; when the project was done, he marveled at the beauty of the floor's wood grain, and at how the floor changed the home's entire aesthetic. He launched Angerman Hardwoods the following year with the help of his partner, Cynthia.
Today, the Angerman draws on decades of experience to bring out the beauty of hardwoods. Specialists sand floors using Bona dust containment sanding equipment that virtually eliminates airborne dust, and they refinish floors using a waterborne polyurethane that gleams for up to eight years. They also install all-new hardwood, bamboo, laminate, and cork flooring. They've strived to provide high-quality customer service in addition to high-quality products, earning an A+ from the Better Business Bureau.
Affordable Carpet Care revitalizes floors using the high-torque motors of the Rotovac 360 cleaning system, creating powerful steam baths that leave homes free of pollutants and dust. With each pass of the powerful machine, a confluence of vacuum slots, deep-scrubbing, and spray jets pulverize impounded stains with hot-water extraction. Floor surfaces benefit from 750 multidirectional cleaning passes per minute, sacrificing trapped dirt and long-lost LaserDisc remotes. Affordable Carpet Care can provide spot treatments on an individual basis.
Tile adds a clean, creative look to kitchens, bathrooms, and patios, but it's also an eco-friendly flooring material that requires no harsh chemicals or maintenance to keep it gleaming. Staff members at A World of Tile help clients to upgrade living spaces with this environmentally friendly alternative through in-house design consultations and a range of ceramic, stone, and specialty tiles. They amass products from across the globe, offering unique designs and SunTouch heated options that warm toes during cold winter months and prevent chihuahuas from shaking the whole year. During free hands-on workshops, staffers teach customers how to correctly install tile themselves or provide referrals to local contractors.
