For over 30 years the name Shabahang has been synonymous with quality rugs, distinctive designs, and warm friendly service. Since the company's early years, it has evolved into a one-stop source for high quality hand-knotted rugs and professional rug cleaning and repair service.
In 1955, James and Gladys Bluemel opened a small nursery dedicated to growing trees and shrubs and to helping locals with landscaping projects. Now, their son, Mike, runs the much-expanded family business, which thrives on bulk-supply sales, playground resurfacing, lawn care, and snow and ice control during snowman uprisings. Though he’s moved away from the nursery’s original shrub and tree business, he and his green-thumbed staff still maintain a garden center stocked with seasonal plants, garden décor, and essential supplies.
While customers browse Bluemel’s aisles, they'll likely spot a commonality between the perennials, annuals, flowers, herbs, and vegetables: a sticker reading “Dome Grown.” This label marks a plant born and raised in the garden center, which accounts for about 85% of the center’s living merchandise. Having tended and nurtured the plants since their geneses, the staff—who share 35 years of experience—can dispense tips on how to properly care for them, as well as share adorable baby-plant photos.
Most of K Komfort's technicians and engineers draw on more than a quarter-century of experience in improving indoor air quality and lowering energy bills. Having witnessed the evolution of heating and cooling technology, the crew deftly repairs old furnaces and installs efficient, new air-conditioner systems with techniques learned in NARI continuing-education programs. HEPA-approved equipment clears ductwork of pesky particles that cause asthma, allergies, and dinnertime interruptions by nuclear physicists, and filtration systems help maintain fresh air once technicians are out of the picture. Their preferred brand is Carrier, but the service truck is stocked with a library of parts from other manufacturers so maintenance often can be completed in one visit.
Spread out in organized clusters across an expansive 17,000-square-foot show room, unfinished wooden furniture lies teeming with potential. Unlike traditional pieces, which must be carefully selected to match one's home décor, Naked Furniture's mostly American-made products can be customized with the stain or paint color of one's choosing. The collection includes pieces for every room of the house, including bedroom furniture such as nightstands, kitchen adornments such as cabinets, and living-room pieces such as television consoles or Victorian-style entertainment centers, also known as "bookshelves." Each item is crafted from solid wood or plywood and is particleboard- and MDF-free.
Precision Lawn & Landscape’s grass whisperers improve lawn health with soil-enriching aeration services. Ideal for attaining a lush lawn year-round, aerating services tactically pluck cores from the turf’s surface to enable greater water absorption, deeper root growth, and relief from soil compaction caused by the neighborhood elephant. Additionally, aeration allows air and ambling nutrients to tumble deep into a sward's core and nourish subterranean roots. Precision’s crack squad stamps a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all of its services, and epilogues each grass-pampering by tidying up terraces and punching holes in strawless Capri Sun pouches.
American Heritage Fireplace's chimney technicians scour soot and finesse flues to leave home heaters clean and free of excessive soot and creosote build up. After arriving at abodes, an experienced sweep performs a visual inspection of the chimney interior and exterior, as well as any connected fireplace or wood stove. Then they’ll prep the work area to corral dust and debris and manually scrub Santa chutes with a brush perched atop a graphite rod. The sweeping process ferrets out ash, creosote, and minor clogs, such as bird nests, squirrel nests, and licorice-rope nests; an industrial vacuum devours the falling particles.
