For the technicians at Auto Detail of Silicon Valley, vehicle detailing isn't just about making your car look pretty; it's about helping it last. When washing exteriors, they remove harmful substances such as tree sap, fallout, and brake dust that can bond to the paint and form rust. Then they apply a Carnauba wax that not only gets exteriors glimmering, but also guards against harmful UV rays. Once they make it to the interiors, the team does the same for seats and carpets, ousting dirt and conditioning leather and carpet fibers. They also offers services ala carte, such as engine degreasing and headlight restoration?all of which they can perform at a client's home or office.
Just Windows has been creating clear, pristine views of backyards and city streets for more than two decades. The company's dedicated teams wash windows in 5,000 homes and 300 buildings every year, spritzing and shining away dust and dirt from windowpanes, tracks, and frames. But don't be fooled by the name—while window cleaning may be Just Window's specialty, the crew can also clean out gutters, pressure wash home exteriors, or even remove debris from construction projects.
A detailed-oriented person by nature, Joubert has a penchant for cleanliness and order. He and his team perform a litany of services, including housecleaning, gutter clearing, and pressure washing. Their handiness also extends to gardening and landscaping, house painting, window washing, and general home repair.
Superior Pressure Washing has been locally owned and operated since 1993––that's more than 19 years of busting up dirt with high-pressure water. Once owner Jason Roberts sends out the call, highly trained grime eliminators waste no time before they spray down building exteriors, scour muck from roofs, and clean out the dirty minds of Freudian thinkers. The crews also employ a system that ensures a minimal impact on the environment by recycling the water used during services.
When the climbers of Planet Granite say that community anchors everything they do, they have a history of outreach to back it up. After Castle Rock State Park appeared on California’s closure list, Planet Granite’s team quickly organized a fundraiser to save the sanctuary. They pledged $10,000 in matching funds, threw an auction, scheduled guest speakers, and obtained support from companies such as REI. In one night, they raised $20,725.
This kind of response has typified Planet Granite’s team since opening its first facility in 1994. One of the first climbing gyms in the country, Planet Granite has expanded to three gyms in Belmont, San Francisco, and Sunnyvale. The diverse array of climbing resources at each location led Popsugar to name the gym conglomerate one of the top five in San Francisco in 2011. At the Sunnyvale location, members scale 25,000 square feet of climbable surfaces that ascend from low bouldering terrains to 60-foot walls.
In keeping with their commitment to community, the staff tailors instruction and climbing routes to every ability level and affinity for hand sweatiness. They also supervise each gyms’ fully equipped fitness centers, ranging from CrossFit to yoga, which provides a peaceful counterbalance to the full-body workout of rock climbing.
