Arizona Pest Control Company's insured and certified technicians have been marching into battle against multilegged opponents since 1947. In their 67 years of service, they have evolved the knowledge and weaponry necessary for evicting bugs, birds, and rodents from both residential and commercial abodes. As they scour homes for signs of unwanted guests, they implement up-to-date technology to both banish and bar pests from the premises.
With eco-friendly bee traps, which lack the pesticides that affect other native animals, the staff can settle long-standing debates over whether that buzzing noise was in your mind all along. Antitermite warranties and treatments keep wooden foundations standing firm, and highly educated bird-control personnel clear out feathery nuisances. Technicians can schedule recurring appointments as well as report for emergency services 24 hours a day.
ARS/Rescue Rooter's team of trained, courteous specialists performs an array of air conditioning, heating, and plumbing services nationwide. Regular seasonal maintenance prolongs the life of air-conditioner units and enables them to run efficiently, saving homeowners from grievous energy waste and incurring the righteous wrath of eco-conscious polar bears.
The algae adversaries at Splash Pool Service keep pools properly purified and prepped for ultraclean swims and soaks with effective pool-cleaning services. Algae buildup causes dirty water, pool staining, and, if left unchecked, a gelatinous blob that swallows up a pool owner's home before morphing into a question mark. During a cleaning service, which takes place every other week, professional pool techs calm the waters of residential swimming pools with all the necessary pH balancers, conditioners, and chlorine shocks to make pools fizz with Old Faithful–esque enthusiasm. At the end of the cleansing, formerly unattractive liquid cages glow with chemical beauty, ready to receive any belly flop or triple-back-flip can-opener combo without drenching the swimmer in slime.
The team at Black Rose Tattooers is on a roll. In 2012, they received their third consecutive Best Tattoo Parlor award from Tuscon Weekly. Over the years, the magazine has had a lot to say about the trio of shops, calling the artists “masters of their craft” and admiring how “skill is apparent in every design, whether the tattoo is a realistic portrait…or a custom sleeve”. Though the tattooers love to accept custom projects, the street-style shops also welcome passersby for impromptu ink sessions. In case clients are too excited about their fresh ink to pay attention to the staff's post-tattooing guidelines, the company's website has a page with tips for tattoo aftercare.
When not hunched over their buzzing tattoo tools, Black Rose’s team also performs face and body piercings, even surgically implanting tongs to improve grilling abilities. They take this work rather seriously as well—each year, the crew attends the Association of Professional Piercers Conference in Las Vegas. Two of the staffers even have their own jewelry line, Honeycomb Organics, a collection of one-of-a-kind wood, stone, silver, and copper baubles that ranges from traditional rings and necklaces to large-gauge body jewelry.
Since 1959, the technicians at Rite-Way Ventilating Co. have brought their warm attitudes and wide-ranging expertise to area homes, providing air conditioning, heating, and plumbing services. When completing both repairs and installations, they advocate using energy-efficient machinery out of respect for the environment and customers' utility budgets. To the same eco-friendly end, they patch up ducts with the EPA-endorsed Aeroseal duct-repair system. This system is less invasive than traditional duct repair, saving energy and cost without sinking to such methods as sending a glue-covered intern crawling through them.
Employees invest in customer trust as well as the Earth's welfare—at each appointment, they discuss costs up front before tinkering with the pipework. Their written guarantee promises satisfaction with their work, not just that the equipment will function and will not come to life in their absence.
