The stain-slaying staff at Mark’s Cleaning Service, with 27 years of carpet-cleaning prowess, extricates grime from fibers without leaving a sticky residue or overwetting shags. During the multistep process, a commercial-strength vacuum first removes dry soil and hidden car keys before a preconditioner loosens dirt and oils. A spot-clean ameliorates stubborn blots such as gum, wax, squid ink, and pet stains, and then a truck-mounted rinse system bathes carpets. Next, an Evolution wand breaks up encrusted crud with gentle agitation. The skilled carpet custodian then targets any lingering stains with a specialty spot cleaner and finishes by blowing carpets dry with a high-powered turbo dryer or by mouth.
The factory-trained sleep experts at Mattress Matters strive to help customers get up on the right side of the bed with a wide range of mattress brands and types. Clients count fewer sheep than ever before on a Simmons Beautyrest queen set, whose motion-separating, pocketed coil springs and highly trained shepherds fill nights with uninterrupted REM cycles ($699+). Developed by NASA, the Tempur-Pedic bed conforms to every nook and cranny of the body, supporting perfect spinal alignment and comfort ($1,199+). Media mogul Donald Trump's line of luxury slumber vehicles boasts KoolComfort memory foam and a top-layer quilt to caress bodies and minds into dreamland ($849+), and the Sealy Posturpedic's orthopedically correct support aids in creating ache-free days and z-filled nights ($579+).
The craftsmen of HammerDown Construction feel most at home on top of other homes. They specialize in roof and gutter work, reporting to residences after storms to patch up leaks and stave off costly water damage. Even if the roof just needs an inspection or a few shingles replaced, they'll administer a quick roof tuneup, which also includes the resealing of caulked seams and a gutter cleaning. The team—which consists entirely of full-time workers—also spruces up home exteriors with power-washing services.
