Window Genie deploys trained professionals to scrub windows to a shine inside and out or upkeep home exteriors with a suite of services. To start window cleanings, techs wet glass and scrape away any paint flecks or other debris, then scrub and squeegee each pane clean. Before stepping back to admire their handiwork, they wipe edges and sills dry and check for any smudges or drips. Their no-streak guarantee empowers homeowners to call workers back if they're unhappy with the job or just want to watch them levitate to the second floor again.
In addition to cleaning, Window Genie can tint windows to protect furniture from fading or napping cats from sunburning. Their blinds and shutters stylishly block unwanted sunbeams, and homeowners can keep the Window Genie number on file for when they need gutter protectors, pressure washing, or tile-and-grout scrubdowns.
Ferguson Hardware has been helping do-it-yourselfers spruce up homes and beautify gardens for more than a century. Banish closet clutter or marauding garden weeds to a 32-gallon black trash can ($21.49), which can double as a handy holding place for a 32-day supply of vintage milk. Handy customers can organize screwdrivers, wrenches, and hammers in a Stanley toolbox ($13.99), soothe crying hinges with an 8-ounce can of WD-40 oil ($2.99), or woo a lonely mail carrier with a Step 2 mailbox specially designed to attract attention for its durability and taste in shoes. A professional-grade driveway sealer keeps tricky asphalt from escaping the confines of driveways ($17.49), giving customers the freedom to roll out one of Ferguson Hardware’s wide selection of Weber grills for a driveway barbecue.
When it was founded in 1959, Ziebart’s business model hinged on a single service: its innovative rust-prevention procedure. However, the chain has diversified its auto treatments throughout the last five decades. Though the team of certified technicians continues to safeguard vehicles against corrosion, they also protect paint jobs with Z-Shield and Diamond Gloss coatings and render interior fabrics stain-resistant with their house Ultra Fabric Protector formula. They clean and disinfect ride interiors, and hand-wash and machine polish exteriors to a sparkling shine. Beyond up-keeping vehicles, they stock an arsenal of car electronics that run the gamut from remote car starters to in-dash navigation systems, which can help drivers find their way back home without relying on a trail of breadcrumbs.
State-registered and certified exterminators from Magnus Pest Management deftly and discretely remove unwanted pests such as termites, rodents, roaches, and bed bugs from residential and commercial properties. When faced with an infestation of termites, the team employs both conventional liquid treatments as well as advanced baits to end their reign of terror. With larger pests, such as raccoons, birds, and that one nosy kid next door, the team safely removes them from the premises and transports them back to their natural habitat.
Despite its name, Sweet Treats’ menu goes beyond sugary confections. Aside from the freshly baked cinnamon rolls available during breakfast, oatmeal and biscuits and gravy make an appearance early in the day. But after 10:00 a.m., sweets take over—like if US Senators were allowed to join a high-school student council. The menu includes everything from pie and cheesecake to large cookies and fudge by the pound or half-pound. A selection of cupcake flavors changes daily, and scoops of ice cream nestle into waffle cones, sundaes, and banana splits.
