Clutter doesn't take long to sneak up on homeowners, and the team at We Take Junk are experts at loosening its grip. They'll pull up in a dump truck and haul every last bit of it away, recycling whatever they can. Whether a collection of beer cans has gotten out of hand or refrigerators have reproduced faster than expected, they stay on call 24 hours a day to help clients with their junk emergencies.
When it comes to garage doors, there hasn't really been a whole lot of innovation in the past 40 years. The best garage door is the one that opens, closes, and doesn't give you any guff in between. Sound Door Service—a Seattle-based, locally owned and operated company—understands this, and that's why a good number of their doors come with life-time warranties. But that's just the beginning. They stock a massive selection of doors that range from classic steel doors that get the job done to Heritage Classic carriage style doors, hand-crafted by retired race horses.
Of course, sometimes things go wrong, so Sound Door Service keeps a team of techs on hand. They can fix up damaged sections, install an entirely new unit, or swap out rusty springs for new ones. Techs can also correct door torsion and repair extension springs, and lend assistance and expertise to owners shopping for a new door.

What makes your business stand out?
Our mission is to continually satisfy our customer's highest expectations for quality, service and integrity, to earn their trust and keep them coming back. It's a mission that we are proudly committed to renew each day when we open our doors for business. We specialize in full service landscape and maintenance services throughout Western Washington.
What inspired you to start or run this business?
Because of the cool, wet winters that are experienced in Western Washington there is a huge need for lawn renovation services. Aerating, thatching, and overseeding lawns is necessary to get rid of the moss and to make a healthy lawn grow in in its place. I take great pride in taking an unkempt, moss-covered lawn, and turning it into the envy of the neighborhood.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
In addition to lawn renovation services we also specialize in taking care of the lawn after renovating it.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
"I confess to letting the old lawn go last year and it was sure looking poor and neglected. We had moss, weeds and the grass became sparse and weak. This spring I hired Jeff at Growscapes and in only a few months of careful nurturing we have one of the best lawns in our neighborhood. It’s really lush and green. I just can't decide if it looks more like the infield in Yankee Stadium or Safeco Field." Tony J.

Although most chefs have their own unique style of peeling, dicing, and julienning veggies, they all have one thing in common: they each require precise, sharp knives. At Excalibur Cutlery and Gifts, the staff ensures that tools remain as close to their factory condition as possible. During sharpening services, a water-cooled belt system and buffing wheels restore a piercing blade while removing a minimal amount of steel. They can sharpen kitchen, pocket, and hunting knives, as well as dull scissors and razors.
The shop also stocks premium models of nearly every edge they sharpen. The cutlery department stocks German-made Wusthof and Henckels, Swiss-made Forschner, and Oregon-grown Kershaw knives. Ideal for camping trips, pocket knives come in both blade and multitool varieties. More genteel wares include manicure sets and old-fashioned shaving kits. Excalibur also boasts a collection of swords for the collector or CEO whose business suit needs extra panache.
The hassle of moving to a new home can be an exhausting process that consumes massive amounts of time and effort. The professionals from Movable ease that burden by helping clients relocate all of their precious belongings to a new apartment, house, or inflatable bouncy castle. To help minimize the stress, the movers are willing to lend a hand and do as much or as little as necessary, from packing boxes to disassembling furniture and disconnecting appliances, only to reassemble and reconnect them upon reaching the final destination. The two- to three-mover crews arrive fully prepared for every job, and they don't charge extra fees for the use of dollies and hand trucks, moving blankets, shrink wrap, tape, plastic mattress covers, wardrobe boxes, or other tools as they quickly and efficiently load boxes as well as belongings into one of their three sizes of trucks.
The cleaning crews from Salmon Bay Window Cleaning spruce up windows, roofs, gutters, and façades with thorough cleaning processes. Armed with professional pressure washers, skilled teams blast away stubborn algae, mildew, and grime from decks and exteriors, rather than leaving passive-aggressive notes about hygiene on dirty surfaces. Technicians climb houses to expel leaves and inappropriate thoughts from the gutter or brush off buildup from rooftops, even applying protective zinc sulfate or liquid moss treatments. Window-washing treatments polish both sides of windowpanes with professional-grade equipment, letting light into living rooms while vanishing unsightly smudges left by farsighted birds.
