Authentic Pine Floors offers a host of unique and eye-teasing heartwood flooring options. Valued for its strength and not its operatic singing voice, heartwood is fashioned from the dead or dormant center of a tree, giving it a higher density and durability. Authentic Pine Floors also operates their own manufacturing facility, where they recycle beams from old distilleries and warehouses into antique heart-pine flooring. Remodel kitchens with 5 1/8-inch or 7-inch-wide slats of reclaimed heart pine ($8.33/sq. ft.), or 6-inch clear-yellow pine ($2.05+/sq. ft.), or beautify foot highways with wide-plank oak. Homeowners can also bedeck dining rooms with a sampling of finished flooring, or opt for Authentic Pine's hand-distressed prefinished woods, which are enriched with a rubdown of oil that gives floors an aged look usually reserved for sepia-toned home movies.
The floor-fresheners at Regency Carpet and Floor Care relieve tiles and textiles of the dirt, odors, and contaminants left behind by daily traffic and pollution. During a 10-step carpet cleaning ($150–$190 for 500 sq. ft.), the hot hands of pressurized, truck-mounted steam-cleaning equipment massage tired carpets into sanitized bliss without saturating carpet backing, subflooring, or underground lairs. Those with animals can opt for the pet-odor-control treatment ($45/gallon of solution), in which carpet cleaners sniff out soiled spots with detection equipment before spraying suspect areas down with an oxidizing, bacteria-chewing solution. The dirt whispering extends to tile and grout ($1–$1.25/sq. ft.) as well as upholstery ($45–$105), taming even the most temperamental fabrics. Coat grabby grout with a stain-resistant sealant, or dress carpets and upholstery with a layer of 3M Scotchgard to protect against future spills and stains.

Since 2001, the friendly, professional technicians at Peach Design, Inc. have installed more than 1.25 million square feet of hardwood flooring—and that's not counting how many floors they've deep cleaned, recoated to restore shine, or re-sanded to a like-new finish. To them, hardwood represents an environmentally friendly, durable choice for home flooring that helps reduce allergies and is easier to clean than carpeting. When they install new floors, they approach the project with expertise and care—they always make sure the new flooring has gone through an acclimation process, where it adjusts to the home's environment and makes small talk with baseboards for two to four days before the installation itself.
