The technicians at Whiteley Wellness Center tighten faces and slim figures with 30-minute microcurrent treatments. During a facelift session, gentle electrical currents pulse through the skin, toning facial muscles better than a set of eyebrow barbells and without the risks associated with Botox or other injectable fillers. This same microcurrent is also applied to troublesome cellulite patches on the abdomen, buttocks, legs, or arms, prompting cell metabolism to increase and fat deposits to flee the region. Facelifts and body contouring may take multiple treatments to see desired results and are not recommended for those with pacemakers or jealous pet eels.
When Angel Trejo of Angel Cleaners swoops into messy homes, he shows up prepared to go toe-to-toe with grime in many contexts. Armed with green cleaning supplies, Angel scrubs counters, cleans floors, shines tabletops, and wipes the inside of windows. Angel is generally able to tidy houses in about six hours, or the time it takes to recite the Gettysburg Address just 180 times.
The technicians at 1st American Air harness powerful vacuums, ultraviolet light, and electrostatic technology to improve one of the most natural and essential parts of human existence: breathing. Air-duct experts use high-tech devices such as shrinking machines to journey into the home’s hidden passageways to draw out dirt and dust, and they can install germicidal lights to pre-emptively ward off the growth of bacteria and viruses. Technicians can also purify air and thwart the dissemination of allergens by spritzing sanitizing agents into ducts or installing electrostatic filters that pluck unsuspecting dirt particles out of the air using magnetic charges.
The staff at Duct Cleaning Services helps their clients take a breath of fresh air inside their homes. They often complete an indoor air-quality assessment to inform their services, which include air-duct cleanings and filter changes. They also have an eye for safety: their dryer-vent cleanings clear lint and debris to prevent house fires.
Play Cafe is the brainchild of parents Ericka and Ron, who were tired of seeking out places where their kids could both get out of the house and find something nutritious to eat. Luckily, they came up with the solution themselves. Within Play Cafe's confines, kids dive into a sea of plastic balls or play dress-up near a wardrobe full of costumes. The town-themed play set gives them lots of chances to act like grown-ups. They sip pretend shakes at the malt shoppe or check out the latest blockbuster at the theater. Blazes are extinguished with the help of pretend firemen, while little drivers hop onto cars to cruise around town or make honking noises in a pretend traffic jam.
At the onsite snack bar, parents fuel their brood with selections from the menu, which lists hot and cold sandwiches, edamame, and string cheese.
