Martinizing Dry Cleaning opened in 1949, quickly establishing multiple locations and a reputation for doing business well. As the company grew, though, it also evolved with the times. Martinizing offers free pick-up and delivery, an essential convenience now that scientists have proved time moves faster every year. This location serves as Green Earth Cleaning affiliates, using gentler products that don't aversely affect the environment in their work.
Sal Sidoti founded his eponymous HVAC company in 1967, driven by the desire to provide top-notch workmanship with no strings attached. In the 45 years since, Sal has recruited a corps of technicians who possess encyclopedic knowledge of every make and model of HVAC equipment. 24 hours a day, these professionals field calls, dishing quotes and dispatching crews to perform basic maintenance or emergency repairs. The crews install, clean, and inspect heating and cooling units to keep homes operating at comfortable temperatures or at the temperature required for authentic reenactments of the first ice age. Technicians can also perform minor plumbing services, such as toilet installations or leaky faucet repairs.
The sheer volume of garments that Widmer's Cleaners has dry-cleaned over the past 100 years is astronomical, but there are a few special items that will never be forgotten. Widmer's processed many vintage garments on display at the Smithsonian, such as Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders outfit, and the suit that Abraham Lincoln was wearing when he was assassinated. Today, the service menu has expanded—technicians will clean carpets, tile and grout, and upholstery, as well as perform a slew of other services. Widmer's is actively involved in the community, contributing to charities such as Goodwill and the American Red Cross.
Mike and Terry Williams compare heaters to cars, pointing out that the average Toledo heater runs for more than 1,800 hours each year—if a car was driven for that long, it could log more than 100,000 miles. Drivers keep their cars running smoothly through regular oil changes and general maintenance, yet many homeowners fail to invest in similar care for their home heating equipment. These are habits Mike and Terry hope to change, as they have learned that preventative measures such as annual tune-ups are the easiest way to keep costly heating and cooling systems operating smoothly.
The company's team of licensed, bonded, and insured technicians maintain old equipment and outfit homes with new heaters from brands such as Trane and Carrier. Beyond heating and cooling, they also work with water heaters and electrical equipment, installing whatever make or model of equipment that will prove most energy efficient for a particular home, commercial space, or upscale doghouse.
Growing up in Las Vegas, Dr. Raymond Frye found himself drawn to bling at a young age. After training in general dentistry in Oregon, he decided to return to that youthful love of all things sparkly by imbuing his clients' teeth with an otherworldly glimmer. To that end, he created Bling Dental Products and launched a series of cosmetic-dental products such as the in-home Icing teeth-whitening kit, the Diamond ultrasonic toothbrush with UV sanitizer, and Shazzam teeth-whitening strips. Embarking on several projects, such as his pro-bono work in Brazil, Dr. Raymond's creations form an arsenal against dullness that aided in the gifting suite at the 2012 Academy Awards and help non-celebrity clientele flash a smile to gain entry to exclusive clubs and temporarily blind bouncers at movie-award ceremonies.
