Aided by their arsenal of powerful equipment and more than a decade of experience, Dry Door's team of household cleaners divests carpets and floors of built-up grime. Waltzing their way through the dirt like dates at a Dust Bowl–era prom, carpet cleaners and their truck-mounted extractors and pressure washers work in tandem to flush soil out of all types of carpets and rugs without the need for soaps, which can leave behind residue.

The fully insured staffers also resolve water-damage issues, dispatching from their office 24 hours a day to help homeowners in need.

Mandy Grant is an expert at working up a sweat; she’s been a fitness enthusiast for decades. So it’s no surprise that the avid exerciser went on to open her personal yoga studio, which she lovingly named after the Zulu word for sweat. Students will also be pleasantly surprised to learn that Mandy donates 15% off all profits from this studio’s classes to assist AIDS orphans in South Africa and all donations from community classes to other charities.
Mandy’s passion to help others doesn’t stop there. At the Bergen County studio, students of all levels are given ample attention during 75-minute yoga classes, which are rooted in Hatha but also incorporate elements of Vinyasa flow, pranayama, and meditation. This style of teaching encourages yogis to connect their breathing with their postures and calming thoughts. Mandy and her dedicated instructors also spice up workout routines with heated Vinyasa sessions and mat Pilates.
