Owner Jeff Ring and his staff of talented technicians at JT's Carpet Cleaning have been evicting household dust, dirt, and other undesirables with professional power-washing and carpet-cleaning services since 1987. Armed with a truck-mounted steam cleaner, the team travels throughout the metro area to tidy up messy rugs and perform other services such as carpet repair and ceramic-tile installation. They also arm themselves with a powerful Ram Air vacuum system that’s powerful enough to take on dirty garage floors, household vents, and gutters, ridding abodes of dust, mold, mildew, and snooping ex-lovers.
When dirt infiltrates carpet fibers and begins its devious task of discoloration, the techs at D&S Professional Carpet Cleaning intervene by cleaning carpets and shielding them against future stains with Scotchgard treatments. Led by a certified textiles expert, the team skillfully dyes bleach stains on carpets, stretches them to remove bumps, and cleanses upholstery on couches and chairs. After they’ve gone, rooms noticeably lack pet odors, tiles sparkle, and houses damaged by fire and water feel more like the indoor theme parks you meant them to be.
The thousands of unpainted pottery pieces that line Walls Of Clay’s walls are each blank canvases for painters’ creative designs. Pottery in shapes like plates, heart-shaped tiles, and animal figurines wait for the studio's provided brushes and paints to bring them to life. Once decorated, the pottery pieces spend time in the studio’s kiln, where under the watchful eye of Walls Of Clay staffers, their paint jobs become permanent, like a dishwasher-safe tattoo.
