Century Tile helps dress naked or aging floorboards with a sweeping selection of more than 10,000 carpet, tile, hardwood, and laminate options. Disguise trapdoor entrances to vampire sleeping spaces with 3/4-inch solid-oak planks ($3.59/sq. ft.) to prevent nosy houseguests from disturbing an undead roommate’s daytime nap. Or opt to cover kitchen floors with durable, low-maintenance Terra Stone vinyl tile ($2.99/sq. ft.) or Allure Foundation laminate flooring ($1.59/sq. ft.), which provide a sturdy stage for impromptu break-dance competitions. Appalachian Trail broadloom carpeting ($2.49/sq. ft.) adds cushion to rough foot highways, and random-length linear glass-mosaic tiles ($11.98/sq. ft.) add a pop of color to barren backsplashes and bathrooms. Oasis ceramic wall and floor tiles ($1.99/sq. ft.) or Raja porcelain tiles ($1.99/sq. ft.) can add accents to homes.
Sears Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning's technicians venture out to scour homes of muck with their seven cleaning and emergency services. The home experts can outfit homes with air filtration systems to help maintain clean, breathable air. Turning their vacuums on carpets or upholstery, the staff helps reduce the appearance of stains with no questions asked. Off-colour tile and grout shines brighter than a new-born sun after Sears's power cleaners blast it, and emergency flood relief is available whenever pipes break.
Design and craftsmanship are of equal importance at Zudor Flooring, where skilled tradesmen install and refinish hardwood floors to give homes a sleek luster. They offer a choice between engineered hardwood, prefinished hardwood, or unfinished hardwood, each type boasting its own set of benefits unique to homeowners' practical and aesthetic needs. Clients looking for a more natural look can opt for bamboo hardwood, while those seeking a hardier surface can choose the engineered variety, which best withstands everyday foot traffic and nausea-prone vacuum cleaners. To revamp existing hardwood, craftsmen also perform sanding and refinishing treatments that give old and worn floors a polished and refined look.
Led by flooring expert Bob Chylewski, the technicians at Kwik Klean pride themselves on the detail of their work, their up-to-date training, and their personal code of ethics. Technicians harness a powerful steam-extraction system that draws out up dirt and stains while leaving behind no soapy residue. Wide-faced vacuum appliances suck floodwater out of carpets, and small, handheld attachments for treating delicate upholstery. Technicians can also tackle tile and grout cleaning as well as pressure washing.
The Tile Shop—as the name coyly suggests—specializes in tile for every imaginable surface and aesthetic style, making it easy for DIY handypeople to tackle small home projects, such as modernizing an avocado-green and penicillin-pink bathroom floor or re-grouting a small garden grotto. Underscore a kitchen with the appetizing orange of pirita siena ceramic tiles ($2.19 per square foot), then trim the counters in lizett beige ($3.99 each) for a complementary finish. Pick up a honeycomb pattern of hex matte black ($5.29 per square foot)—the quintessential backsplash for a gothy bumblebee—or add a touch of character to a small surface with a deep green verde butterfly mosaic ($11.99 per square foot). With its enormous selection of floor tiles, wall tiles, mosaics, and natural stone, the possibilities are as endless as a drive across Nebraska. The Tile Shop also has a plentiful selection of grout and tools for grouting it all together while grinning groutishly.
