Heaven’s Best Carpet Cleaning was ranked #72 on Entrepreneur's 2013 list of the top 500 franchises, and for good reason. The carpet-cleaning company is completely eco-friendly, using a specially formulated, water-based cleaning solution that’s safe for pets, children, and nature. Riding this wave of popularity, the company sees new owner-operated franchise locations popping up like sudsy bubbles across the U.S. every year. Though the company specializes in carpets and area rugs, technicians can also use their cleaning expertise to lift stains from car upholstery, floor tiles, or a robot’s mohawk.
Jason Robertson comes from a long tradition of remodeling homes; his great-grandfather, grandfather, and father were all builders. As the owner of The Tile Gallery, this fourth-generation expert leads a design team to plot out custom tiling projects and install flooring in customers' homes or luxury birdhouses. The crew can arrange patterns ranging from simple staggered brickwork to multiple-tile layers to decorate showers, form wall mosaics, or add a rustic touch to kitchens. Customers can peruse their show room filled with tiles made from ceramic, porcelain, glass, metal, or recycled materials, as well as flooring options that include hardwoods, cork, and carpet.
Duane West's stake in his construction business is more than just ownership, it's an investment in his hometown of Salem. The three R's in his business's name encompass a holistic approach to household maintenance, calling for repairs, remodeling, and remediation, or the destruction of harmful mold and fungus, to ensure structural soundness. His team's multidisciplinary approach covers stonework, woodwork, demolition, construction, and nearly any other service that could turn a house into a home or a fallout shelter into a walk-in closet.
One sunny day, Rob Kelley's kids did something characteristically adorable: they decided to make juice from berries they'd picked in the fields. Not so adorably, they spilled the pitcher of just-smashed berries all over one of his dining-room chairs, and the dark purple juice spread across the upholstery. Luckily for the kids, their father owns Sweet's Chem-Dry, and after a session with the company's hot carbonating extraction system, all evidence of the accident disappeared. Kelley documented his success in a small Facebook album.
His team employs the same carbonation system, along with a green, nontoxic cleanser, to lift dirt and debris from carpets, area rugs, and car interiors. Propelled by a truck-mounted machine, the system's microscopic bubbles delve deep into fibers to push grime to the surface, where hot-water extraction flushes it away. Since this system does not leave residue the way cleaning a carpet traditionally or just letting the birds have at it does, carpets stay clean longer. Fabrics dry in up to two hours, and optional protectant shields carpets and upholstery from future stains.
