Premium Carpet Care boasts an Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification and a level of expertise that has it treating rugs worth more than $25,000. The careful cleaners meticulously spruce up rollable flooring with professional rug-cleaning services, welcoming weary rugs made of fine wool, silk, cotton, nylon, and olefin, as well as Persian, Oriental, and handmade rugs. The most odiferous offenders are given a full-service cleaning ($1.50–$4 per sq. ft.)—at the shop, they're first tested for color fastness, then introduced to the RugBadger, which removes all the dry soil that regular vacuums can't hoover up.
It's difficult to tell whether Master Thomas Gordon or Master Gregory Bledsoe would win in a fight. That's because the two martial-arts instructors have worked on the same team for more than a decade. In that time, they've developed a teaching style that has caught the attention of the local and national press.
All the attention is warranted, because Masters Gordon and Bledsoe aren't just effective instructors—they're avid students of their craft. Gordon, for example, has attended countless tae kwon do seminars and camps, and he can articulately speak about the discipline's history as well as flawlessly demonstrate its self-defense techniques. Both instructors are also acutely aware of the real-life applications of tae kwon do and hapkido. Plenty of police officers have attended their classes looking to get a leg up on the next criminal, and kids and teens use their newly acquired moves to defend against bullies or rip up impossible math tests.
