In true family style, brothers Nick and Kirby Kuklenski own and operate two “sister” Ace Hardware stores in Colorado Springs, keeping local homes beautiful with name-brand products and services. Lawns grow thick and colorful with Scotts fertilizers, plants, and seeds from the shops’ lawn departments, whereas computerized color matching in the paint aisles keeps outsides as vibrantly hued as flowers in a garden or a house fly strolling across an artist’s palette. Collections of DeWalt and Craftsman hand and power tools help homeowners assemble Weber grills, with staffers standing at the ready to build any piece bought at the store. Even autos can get in on Ace Hardware’s helpful services: keys are cut onsite, with Sidewinder keys including built-in chips that interact with car computers to ensure proper starts without feeding vehicles buckets of floppy disks.
Armed with eco-friendly products, Dust Bunnies’ licensed and insured cleaning crews beautify interior landscapes around the Denver metro area. If they’re visiting a house for the first time, staffers chat with inhabitants about desired results before embarking on a complete cleaning. During this epic scouring, cleaners locate and exterminate every particle of dirt between the floor and the ceiling. They wipe the walls, clear the buildup in showerheads, wash floors by hand, and clean up snowmen that have been left to melt inside. After this preliminary cleanup, cleaners maintain newly gleaming spaces with a constant-care service. On these visits, they dust, take out the trash, and tear out all the unused pages from your phone book.
The bonded and insured technicians at Clean House scrub homes top to bottom, using eco-friendly cleaning techniques and biodegradable cleaners. Starting below their feet, techs clean carpets to remove trapped dust and dirt that could ruin appetites during living-room picnics. Next, they can don rubber gloves to wash all domestic surfaces or nimbly climb ladders to clean windows, skylights, and gutters. Other Clean House services include day-to-day minutiae, such as in-home cooking, errand running, ironing, and changing dirty linens.
With almost two decades of experience under its environmentally friendly belt, the fastidious team at Eco Carpet Cleaning goes beyond its moniker, making sparkling surfaces of carpets, upholstery, and air ducts and doling out natural, healthy lawn-care solutions. When scrubbing down textiles, no hallway or stair carpet escapes the cleansing touch of the team's dirt extractor, and upholstery cleaning sucks away odors, stains, and generations of dust-mite civilizations. Eco Carpet Cleaning's technicians maintain lawn health at both residential and commercial spaces, aerating lawns to ensure light, water, and nutrients penetrate deep into the soil, and feeding quality seed with locally made organic fertilizer collected from hormone-treatment-free animals.
For a small business, Riveting Frame & Design’s staff boast an impressive resumé: two members are artists—one of whom has a fine-arts degree—and the team has nearly a half-century of combined experience. Customers can meet with these experts at the store, where they will receive same-day quotes that detail all the possible design options. Working with the team, clients then choose a design from an extensive selection of frames, mouldings, mats, and fillets; with staff using computerized mat cutting to ensure accuracy. Additionally, Riveting outfits delicate artworks or especially successful peach cobblers in conservation framing, and the shop sells original and fine art, mirrors, canvas prints, and giclées.
When not busy saving buildings as a suburban firefighter, Lawn Masters' manager Tim Urban keeps them beautiful with commercial and residential landscaping services. Tim and his cohort of expert lawn-maintenance pros can stop by weekly to mow, edge, and trim lawns and control weeds from running rampant and taunting trees that are helplessly rooted into the ground. Equipped with a Ryan Lawnaire 28, they can also seasonally aerate lawns to quench roots with much-needed oxygen, and fertilize lawns to keep blades lush and vibrant.
