Kalologie 360 Spa's expert beauty gurus offer a first-class selection of pampering services, earning the franchise a spot on Elle magazine's 2008 list of Top 10 Beauty Boutiques. The staff exfoliates faces with more than 10 varieties of facials and peels, using the boutique's own line of products custom formulated from medical-grade ingredients free of parabens and sulfates. Therapists also treat clients with massage modalities such as Swedish, shiatsu, and deep-tissue, as well as waxing treatments that use specially formulated hard and soft wax for all areas of the body. Airbrush spray tans round out the menu of services, leaving bodies with a bronze hue similar to that achieved by bathing in a tub of melted-down doorknobs.
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.

Air quality begins at home. At least, that's the view of the expert cleaners behind Blue Sky Duct Cleaning, LLC. During residential air-duct cleanings, they free home environs from the dust, allergens, and pollutants that often leave residents feeling under the weather and systems running inefficiently. To drive the point home, they also maintain a sobering before-and-after gallery that reveals the hidden gunk lurking within many houses' ductwork.
US Air Solutions' EPA–certified and thoroughly vetted technicians purify home airways and ensure efficient climate control. After techs arrive via vacuum-powered mail tube, they begin to diligently clean air vents of built-up dust, allergens, and any other pollutants that may affect a home's odor, air quality, and gravitational pull.
Power Duct Cleaning ensures the highest degree of air quality by cleaning ducts with scubbers, power-washers, and industrial duct-cleaning machinery?a process that takes two to four hours. Using a host of equipment the technicians remove dirt and dust from home air systems, which can reduce respiratory irritation and increase the systems' efficiency. Power Duct recommends ducts be cleaned every three to five years for homeowners, and every two years for commercial buildings.
