The dedicated staffers at Carpet Cleaning Club are licensed, bonded, and insured, allowing them to focus completely on soiled carpets, rugs, and floors. After their visits, patrons sigh happily, pressing bare feet into newly fluffy and clean carpet. The team also wields green cleaning products and enzyme treatments, and Scotchgard elixirs can protect carpets from spills and easily startled wine-tasting clubs.
For half a century, car lovers have souped up their engines and spruced up their auto bodies at Goodies Speed Shop, putting their prized vehicles in the hands of seasoned mechanics and technicians. The garage traces its origins back to 1962, when founder Richard Guess began outfitting an up-and-coming racing community enamored with the compact size and roaring horsepower of hot rods.
Today, the speed shop enhances engines of all sizes and types with exhaust systems, programmer modules, and suspensions from more than 150 brands. Dyno-pull services and laser wheel alignments keep rides running fast and true, while routine maintenance, tire rotations, and oil changes guard against expensive future overhauls. Those without a racer of their own can take a Mustang GT for a spin on a professional racetrack, and even learn the basics of car control, passing protocols, and wearing giant cola logos from pro driver Perry Richardson.
At The Car Spa, detailers use soft cloths, hand waxes, and shampoo to bring soiled vehicles back to a shiny state. Their sole focus is to remove interior and exterior filth, whether it’s a coffee spill soiling the carpet or a smudge of road grime tainting the finish. They target everyday wear with wash packages that include soft-cloth washes and a clear coat.
More advanced blemishes can be undone with a detail package; treatments such as buffing, polishing, and leather conditioning rekindle the car’s original glow and make it proud to roll down the assembly line at its 10-year factory reunion.
Vince Serio—detailing whiz and owner of Serio's Custom Detailing—works with a team of skilled detailers to bring dirty cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, RVs, and boats back to a state of cleanliness. His shop's services include à la carte treatments to help remove overspray, tar, and interior stains caused by carpooling with oil tycoons. Basic hand washes and waxes and clay-bar treatments give way to in-depth detailing sessions such as the Full Auto Transformation, which leaves even the filthiest of cars clean and shiny after about four hours of attention from Vince and company.
