Quality ceramic and mosaic tile craftsmanship is in John Vadurro's blood. His family emigrated from Italy to the United States more than 60 years ago, bringing with them the knowledge and tradition of such vocations. He bolsters those traditions, however, by keeping abreast of current pattern trends and color schemes. At TileBaths, he oversees all projects, from the initial consultation to the post-production of custom-designed tiles. To ensure high-quality artisan tile work, everyone on his team has undergone at least five years of apprenticeship. Besides crafting pieces for the kitchen, bathroom, and home, they also repair tile and offer upkeep services such as re-caulking.
Andrew's Carpet, Tile, and Upholstery Care owner Andrew Gray has dedicated the last 12 years to keeping homes clean both inside and out. Free estimates allow Andrew to provide honest assessments to homeowners in need of carpet cleaning, power washing, or water removal, and products from brands such as Chemspec and Pro Choice allow the cleaning expert to thoroughly wash away grime without resorting to extreme tactics such as taunting fabrics till they cry. The bilingual, family-owned-and-operated business also uses its stain-lifting expertise to treat upholstery and furniture, and can help maintain the color and integrity of tile, stone, marble, and grout.
It’s not surprising that Chem-Dry boasts more than 4,000 locations around the world—it uses reliable cleaning agents that are both natural and effective. Its carpet-cleaning process leaves floors treadable in one to two hours with a simple mixture of carbonation and hot water that uses significantly less moisture than steam cleaning or an indoor fire hydrant. The nontoxic cleaner, which Chem-Dry calls The Natural, is safe to use around kids and pets. Technicians can also use a black light to hunt down pet urine spots for treatment, remove water damage, and extract grime from tile and grout before applying a protective sealant.
