Homes across Sacramento got a lot more organized in 1999, at least when it came to their closets. The Closet Doctor opened its doors, and ever since the first client at the end of the 20th century, its designers have transformed cluttered spaces into organized havens. The designers remodel closets of all sizes, from small reach-ins to full-size dressing rooms. Each makeover starts with a consultation to suss out the homeowner's needs. The designer works with customers on potential designs using a 3D rendering program.
The computer program virtually alters the space: Cluttered racks become wood shelves with concealed European-style hinges, and piles of clothing disappear into the drawers of closet organization systems. The Closet Doctor's premier system, the Sienna Collection, fills spaces with maple, cherry, and white oak shelves handcrafted in a Green-certified facility.
With this approach, the designers can also outfit closets to double as guest rooms with the addition of Murphy beds. They also tackle what is arguably a home's largest closet: the garage. Here, they install oversize closets and storage bins that can hold everything from holiday decorations to retired robot butlers from the '80s.
Both Chris and Jenifer Klaus began to dabble in the art of photography as children and continued to fuel their collective passion through adulthood, eventually establishing JC Photography and snapping shots in their at-home studio. Not limiting themselves to the indoor space, however, they also venture to outdoor locales throughout the community, aiming to capture moments that show each subject’s personality and warmth. Once the images are taken, they retire to their photo lab and retouch images, which their clients can view on a 106-inch screen in a darkened viewing room before they order prints.

Everyday, innocent floors get walked all over. So the the certified technicians at Above The Rest Inc. employ a three-step process to restore household floors to like-new glory. Whether working on deeply stained kitchen floors or garage floors bearing greasy smudges from years of use, the process begins with a pre-treatment solution that agitates stuck-on dirt, grime, and oil, loosening its hold on the floor. Next, the team sweeps the area with a floor tool that blasts the surface with water heated to 130 degrees and pressurized up to 1,200 PSI, removing the pesky layer of dirt once and for all. Meanwhile, the tool vacuum-extracts water from the surface at a rate of 5 gallons per minute, allowing the surface to dry quickly without filling the room with box fans or neighborhood kids wielding hair dryers.
