West Coast Flooring Center's expert ground coverers guide clients through a wide selection of brands, such as Shaw, Mohawk, Fabrica, Royalty, Beaulieu, and Masland. Homeowners shield family-room floors with hardwood ($2.99+/sq. ft.) and cover bedroom floors with carpet ($1.49+/sq. ft.). Laminate floors ($0.99+/sq. ft.) do their best to imitate their wooden brethren, and natural stone floors ($1.49+/sq. ft.) connect bare feet with nature, minus the danger of going outdoors—the place science has shown most likely to harbor fierce lions, biting cold, and unnecessary phone books. West Coast Flooring Center also dabbles in granite countertops and area rugs.
One of the main disadvantages of traditional carpet cleaning is the long drying times—carpets can be oversaturated with water and stay damp for days. That's not the case with Air Fresh Chem-Dry's carpet-cleaning services, which use an organic, chemical-free, and nontoxic carbonated cleaner that requires a quarter of the amount of water used by traditional cleaning methods to thoroughly degrime carpets. Technicians apply the carbonated formula with a low-pressure-spray machine that covers carpets and furniture with microscopic carbonated bubbles. These bubbles work to separate soil and long-lost cell phones from fibers and push them to the surface, where they are swept away. The formula and low amount of water used ensure that most carpets dry in one to two hours. In addition to cleaning carpets and furniture, the technicians scour tile and grout and polish patio stones, making them shinier than a sports car drizzled in olive oil.
Every garment that comes into The Cleaners Club goes through a six-step cleaning process the starts with an inspection and ends with custom packaging. The employees behind the process all have a minimum of five years of dry-cleaning experience and underwent a two-month training program before being hired. This dedication to quality service and educated staff has been The Cleaners Club mantra since the company's inception in 1985, and it's helped them develop long-standing partnerships with corporations including Ralphs and Vons. Both locations use nontoxic hydrocarbon solvents designed to cleanse garments and upholstery without perchloroethylene—an environmentally unfriendly chemical used by many dry cleaners and Mother Nature's rebellious nephew.
Some drivers may prefer to impress onlookers with a shiny, reflective finish on their car. Others may opt to treat their carpool passengers or favorite morning-radio hosts to freshly laundered interiors. Knowing that motorists have different priorities, Wax Man Industries augments whole-car details with a full spectrum of customized services, which allow drivers to assemble a detail tailored to their own comfort and cosmetic preferences.
With the help of nanotechnology products, including high-gloss waxes and sanitizing shampoos, the detailers hone in on smeared exteriors, stained upholstery, and greasy engines to transform every car their sponges touch into a vehicle that looks like it escaped from a Ferrari daycare. Included in the roster of detail services are more-involved restoration techniques, including buffing, sanding, and oxidation treatments performed with a 24-hour turnaround and a money-back guarantee in case clients aren't satisfied. In addition to four-wheeled vehicles, the technicians also revamp boats, airplanes, trailers, and motorcycles to ensure exteriors gleam on the sea, in the air, and through action-movie stunts through the air into the sea.
With 15 years of experience, the techs at Wax Man Industries have also extended their cleaning know-how into homes in the form of carpet cleaning powered by hot-water-extraction techniques. They pore over carpets with double-pass cleaning strokes and double-drying strokes that shorten the dry time overall. Even though they remorselessly nix deep-seated stains and blotches, their cleaning techniques are hypoallergenic and remain safe for kids and pets alike.
