For the technicians of A&A Pest Control, class is always in session. Before donning the company's employee garb, they must pass a rigorous training course that equips them to deal with all manner of insect and rodent issues. The education doesn't end there, though, as the staff constantly researches and tests new methods of pest control, from field-testing new chemicals that reduce ant populations to breeding invisible cats that pounce upon unwelcome mice. Additionally, technicians eschew the one-size-fits-all approach to pest control for more customized service by investigating each building to determine the type of infestation and the best course of action for removal.
The paving experts from Missouri Brothers Asphalt mend weathered driveways by filling in cracks and matching each surface with a shiny new coat of asphalt sealant. After prepping the surface by cleaning off dirt and debris, the team covers splits and fissures caused by fickle temperatures or woozy shot-putters. Next, a technician sprays MacConnell and Associates MAC 52 sealer over the entire surface using a modern applicator from Panther Equipment. The sealant helps protect the surface from future damage and is backed up by a one-year guarantee, which provides a complimentary retouch of any damages to asphalt that weren't caused by snowplows. Missouri Brothers Asphalt can also repaint parking-lot stripes and markers.
Gutter Brothers helps homeowners protect their abodes from rainy days by clearing out leaf-choked gutters, flushing out downspouts, and surveying drains for troublesome cracks. If leaking gutters cause mold and mildew to crop up on your siding, the crew will power wash it away, and they can also turn their nozzles on grimy decks and driveways. The crew can also install new seamless gutters forged from 27-gauge aluminum, which they back with a 20-year guarantee against cracking, chipping, peeling, and defecting to your neighbor’s house.
Dan and Dana, the D's of D & D Professional Mowing, have been buzzing local soil coifs since 2004. Thanks to the business' lawn-owner-friendly practices, multi-day jobs keep a consistent crew, so clients have time to get to know them, and they have time to learn the route through the hedge maze. Prices depend entirely on the size of the job, but the average lawn runs around $30–$50, including edging and leaf-blowing the sidewalk and driveway. The flora-fashioners will happily give a free price estimate for other services, such as mulching ($80–$400 on average), garden-tilling ($50–$100 on average), or tree-debris removal ($50–$200 on average).
The licensed spine straighteners at Boehmer Chiropractic & Acupuncture, P.C. treat chronic and acute pain with personalized therapeutic treatments. After leafing through magazines in the sunlit waiting room, patients consult with a certified spine expert to get to the root causes of pain or health problems, such as back pain, headaches, or shin splints induced from potato-sack marathons. If needed, x-rays may be taken to shed light on structural or functional issues. Then vertebrates stretch out on black-leather tables for a relief adjustment, which helps realign the spine and the surrounding musculature. During the two needleless acupuncture treatments, certified acupuncturists stimulate muscles with 20- to 60-second jolts of noninvasive electrical impulses while explaining the telekinetic art of needleless cross-stitch. The entire session can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on need, treatments performed, and unexpected shifts to daylight-savings time.
The certified technicians at Kingdom Cleaning freshen sullied carpets with the help of Rotovac equipment. After a precleaning treatment loosens hard-to-remove items such as gum, ink, coffee, and carbon footprints with a specially formulated chemical solution, a two-headed Powerwand gobbles its way across the carpet, banishing grimy invaders such as dust mites and allergens to truck-mounted prisons. During the cleansing routine, Kingdom Cleaning bombards carpets with gusts from high-powered fans to speed up drying. A knowledgeable staffer will perform an inspection once the carpet-cleaning mission is completed, ensuring a job well done and sharing tips for future care.
