A large, bright studio ensures that subjects remain relaxed while cutting-edge cameras and photo software magically illuminate smiles and charmingly transform leering stares. Large monitors are present to immediately showcase striking shots; most prints are printed within the hour, and free digital enhancements are provided. Select your three favorite images and receive one 10x13 print, two 8x10 prints, four 5x7 prints, four 4x5 prints, and twenty-four wallet prints; for an additional $15, you can add two more print sheets and receive digital images as well. Or, for an additional fee, opt to have a photographer sent to your home, office, or tree house for an off-site session (fee varies based on location, distance, and subjects).
P&T Carpet Cleaning's team of professional fabric cleaners lifts stubborn spots and grime from carpets and upholstery with powerful truck-mounted equipment. After flushing out ground-in dirt from heavily trafficked floors, technicians rake carpets to remove vacuum tracks and any residing debris. Deodorizing treatments can then banish unpleasant odors caused by pets, and applications of Scotchgard keep hard-to-clean stains from forming in the first place, kind of like a precursor to precognition crime technology.
The technicians at Fabulous Floors restore a sleek sheen to hardwood flooring with speedy resurfacing services, each of which is usually completed within a few hours. Without sanding away floor material or leaving noxious dust particles, the staff buffs out nicks and scratches and conditions each floor to drool cleaning solution at the ring of a bell. A final finish of polyurethane comes in a choice of gloss, semigloss, or satin polish to ensure that floors glimmer long into the future. With a proper seal, hardwood flooring is more easily cleaned and may reduce the buildup of allergens and thieving beavers too lazy to find their own wood.

The store's four floors of housewares include name-brand items for every room and secret bat cave in the house, including dining and living-room sets and bedroom furniture. A selection of more than 3,000 special-order fabrics and leathers lets customers customize their purchases, while a loaner program provides temporary furniture until the plush new pieces arrive.
Mothers know best, but they can't know everything. That's why the cleaners from Mamas with Mops—whose goal is to live up to the cleaning standards of a discerning mom—defer to the homeowner on all matters, skipping a room or altering their routine upon requests. Typically, though, they follow a checklist of cleaning tasks that includes sanitizing doorknobs and hand washing hardwood floors, all with certified green cleaning products. However, unlike with your own Mom or with a school principal shouting insults at you over the loudspeaker, you can talk back; unsatisfied homeowners can contact cleaners within one business day to express concern.
Cleveland Rock of Ages, a night of live classic rock mastery held at the stadium of the class A affiliate for the Cleveland Indians, opens with the lead singers of Rare Earth, Sugarloaf, Blues Image, and Iron Butterfly all joining forces as the Classic Rock All-Stars and performing songs in the style of rock’s golden era. After a preliminary injection of sonic heaviness, prepare for shock rock’s one-man governing body, Alice Cooper. The heavily mascaraed maestro, well-known for mega-hits like “School’s Out,” “Poison,” and “All I Want Is a Jar of Nickels (For Christmas! For Christmas!),” will take to the stage bearing gifts of rock.
