Mountain Air Duct Services improves air quality by hunting out dust and dander in all of the crannies in which it hides, from the tufts of carpet to the hard-to-reach panels of air ducts and dryer vents. Experts arrive equipped with powerful vacuums to remove malevolent dirt, debris, and allergens the home's airways, which they can bolster against future infestation with UV lamps. Specially trained and certified cleaners purge carpets and upholstery with techniques catered to each type of fabric, scouring suede with a gentle wand and drying oriental rugs with the wind of one hand clapping. Armed with infrared cameras and hygrometers, the crews ferret out mold and water damage before sanitizing, deodorizing, and disinfecting affected areas.
Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
