At 18 locations throughout the greater Phoenix area, Delia's team inspects, maintains, and cleans all manner of clothing and fabric, enhancing this service with free pickup and delivery. Founded in 1969, they're careful to ensure that each item gets the right kind of treatment. Sturdy material such as wool and cotton undergoes the standard cleaning. More delicate fabrics and garments with beads or sequins—cowboy outfits, for example—go through a gentler method that prevents any damage. To keep customers in the know, they've documented their means of fabric care in explicit detail online. Delia's crew also works to sew buttons back on, replace zippers, and make alterations.
Mrs.Carpet & Mr.Duct keeps floors clean and air safe and free of allergens. With truck-mounted equipment, they steam-clean carpets. They use rotary scrubbing brushes with jet sprays and a 360-degree vacuum system to restore tile floorings. By paying ducts and vents special attention, they not only remove dust and debris but also kill germs and evict mildew, animal dander, pollen, and dust mites.
The highly trained home-maintenance professionals at USAir Duct and Carpet Cleaning fight household stains and allergens with carpet and duct cleaning services. Organic materials collect allergens and debris from air ducts, and a Rotovac steam cleans carpets to remove dirt, particles, and dust bunnies that multiply as fast as regular bunnies. Technicians polish tile and grout with soap-based, acid-free cleaners and spruce up domiciles with services such as UV-light air purification and upholstery cleaning.
In 1975, Jay Kogan's parents opened up a store that was literally a hall of frames—just a small store stacked with thousands of frames. At the time, they had no idea that that tiny corridor would expand to 12 locations throughout the greater Phoenix area, all still run by the Kogan family. Today, their shops have more than 4,500 custom frame options along with mats of all colors and textures, as well as seven glazing choices and expert assembly. They can answer framing questions and frame everything from documents and artwork to posters and small 3-D objects such as sports memorabilia and very still grandmothers.
When they custom-produce frames, the family cuts their mats exactly, miters frame corners precisely, and installs flawless glass. Or, since the stores' walls are lined with ready-made frames, customers can walk in and find what they're looking for quickly. Since installing framed art is an art unto itself, they also offer hanging services with an eye for placement and ability to install in difficult spaces.
