A new view to the world. That’s what the aptly named NuVu’s insured and bonded team strives to accomplish with each and every window cleaning. Every appointment begins with a free estimate, before homeowners give the crew the official go-ahead to start working, all while they relax inside, head to work, or eagerly watch from the neighbor’s treehouse. The NuVu team starts by tackling outside panes, spritzing them with purified water and biodegradable cleaning products to remove grime and debris—bird droppings, paint residue, acid rain, and the like—before they become permanent stains. Indoors, they use the same tried and true techniques, but first cover and protect carpets and furniture. To complement the freshly cleaned windows, NuVu’s technicians also pressure wash siding, clean gutters, and even hang Christmas lights.

Using pesticides approved by the EPA as safe for children and pets, the exterminators at Pro Pest tailor their services to the conditions of each home. Technicians discourage the presence of unwelcome creatures by applying chemicals throughout both interior and exterior spaces, and then do one-armed pull-ups to intimidate any rebellious pests. Pesticide applications can last for up to 45 days, and exterminators may use different methods depending on whether homeowners need help with general pests, such as mice and silverfish, or more resilient invaders, such as cockroaches and termites.
Tim Griffin has come a long way from washing dishes. That first job gave set him on a path into the restaurant industry, which led to stints in almost every position including bartender, server, manager, and dish taster for visiting monarchs. He first used his experience to launch a catering company, and then kept evolving and founded his own restaurant, J.Bean's Gathering Place. Today, Tim—along with his wife Ibby and head chef Blair Johnson—welcome guests with a creative menu of dishes ranging from crab-rangoon dip to fish tacos. The two-level dining room evokes a warm, welcoming atmosphere with an abundance of hardwood furnishings and trim anchored by a stone fireplace. The establishment also often hosts special events, such as occasional live music on the patio.
