The Tile Shop—as the name coyly suggests—specializes in tile for every imaginable surface and aesthetic style, making it easy for DIY handypeople to tackle small home projects, such as modernizing an avocado-green and penicillin-pink bathroom floor or re-grouting a small garden grotto. Underscore a kitchen with the appetizing orange of pirita siena ceramic tiles ($2.19 per square foot), then trim the counters in lizett beige ($3.99 each) for a complementary finish. Pick up a honeycomb pattern of hex matte black ($5.29 per square foot)—the quintessential backsplash for a gothy bumblebee—or add a touch of character to a small surface with a deep green verde butterfly mosaic ($11.99 per square foot). With its enormous selection of floor tiles, wall tiles, mosaics, and natural stone, the possibilities are as endless as a drive across Nebraska. The Tile Shop also has a plentiful selection of grout and tools for grouting it all together while grinning groutishly.
Dedicated to conserving the globe's forests, Mr. Bamboo, Inc.'s technicians crown surfaces with durable, lustrous flooring and accessories forged from strand-woven bamboo—which can regrow on its own and sprouts faster than other trees traditionally cut down for hardwood flooring. Professional staffers arrive at homes and offices to install BamStrand flooring with glue or nails, or the BamLoc variety, which they snugly snap into place. Both styles—which are naturally harder than conventional red-oak and maple flooring—are safe for pets and come prefinished with six coats of German ceramic finish.
To further support its environmentally conscious philosophies, Mr. Bamboo, Inc. harvests only the moso bamboo species, which is too large for pandas to eat or whittle into snow globes for their gift shops. The company also frequently collaborates with the U.S. Green Building Council and local contractors building sustainable homes.
For more than a century, Koshgarian Rug Cleaners' IICRC-certified carpet cleaners have meticulously attended to sullied floor coverings of all dispositions. Customers can degrime carpets in any two rooms (up to 300 sq. ft./room), or in the hallway, stairway, or spiral slideway of their choice (can be substituted for 300 sq. ft. or counted as one room). Each deep-cleaning process begins with the removal of up to three pieces of furniture, followed by a thorough pretreating to remove soils, stains, and remains of domestic mudslides. Next, a licensed, insured, and bonded technician will harness the power of a truck-mounted hot-water extraction system and a people- and pet-friendly cleaning solution to purify your carpet's thread from warp to weft.
Johnny On The Spot Professional Services' hardworking staff launders floors and upholstery using products that are safe for children, pets, and the environment. Cleaners conveniently relocate reasonably sized furniture and foreclosed dollhouses before pre-treating carpets and luring dirt from the fibers with nontoxic cleaners. With the same focus and equipment, they also bring back the crisp, sanitized feel of furniture, mattresses, and oriental rugs, burrow through dusty air ducts, and lift mildew from tile and grout.
The technicians at Chicagoland Carpet Cleaners remove stubborn dirt, grease, and oil stains with powerful steam and suction as well as non-toxic cleaners and fabric protectors. The furious engine of their hot-water extraction system simultaneously pumps water into and out of carpet fibers to lift out contaminants, stains, and mildew. The experts also lend their talents to sullied tile, grout, or air ducts, and also offer dry-cleaning services for older, AARP-eligible carpets.
