Stains cower before Dave Norton, the founder of All Star Carpet Cleaning. Using a truck-mounted HydraMaster cleaner, Dave and his crew set out to transform soiled carpets into fresh, clean foot lawns. They have specific cleaning agents to treat pet urine and heavily soiled or trampled areas, as well as a special mixture of enzymes that can tackle almost any unidentifiable stain. The crew also cleans upholstery with special chemicals and tools for spot treatments.
The staff at Martina's Cleaning puts unclean homes through the rinse cycle with fast and efficient housecleaning services. In a flurry of scrubber bubbles, a licensed technician can sanitize bathrooms, wipe dust from surfaces, and restore windows to a sparkling transparency. Homeowners can also request a specialty one-time cleanup when their aquarium-mounted dartboard yields disaster.
The secret behind Five Star Chem-Dry's carpet-cleaning services is carbonation. Expert technicians use a green, non-toxic cleanser to blast bubbles of air into the fibers of the rug, and the effervescence lifts away dirt as it fizzes to the surface, where it is flushed away through hot-water extraction. Because the trick is to use air, Chem-Dry uses less water than conventional carpet cleaners, does not leave a residue, and helps keep carpets clean longer. Carpets dry in one to three hours, and Five-Star Chem-Dry will also apply protectant sheilds or use gentle cleaning products upon request.
Carolina Smoke's pitmasters release bold, succulent taste bursts with a slow-smoked menu of down-home eats. All meats are hand-rubbed and eye-watched, never pre-cloaked in flavor-smothering sauces or frowny-face masks. Sink teeth into the tender beef-brisket sandwich ($10) or delve deep into the flavor furnace with a prime rib ($21). Diners can further slake smoky cravings with a half or full rack of baby-back ribs ($14, $22) or feed famished fingers a gratifying grip of hot wings ($10). The restaurant's policy of allowing eaters to add their own sauce permits patrons to customize flavoring and ink unique impressions on napkin and facial canvases. Behind the eatery's shingled sides and white shutters, dining-room guests can bookend bites with sips of Carolina sweet tea.
