The Tile Shop—as the name coyly suggests—specializes in tile for every imaginable surface and aesthetic style, making it easy for DIY handypeople to tackle small home projects, such as modernizing an avocado-green and penicillin-pink bathroom floor or re-grouting a small garden grotto. Underscore a kitchen with the appetizing orange of pirita siena ceramic tiles ($2.19 per square foot), then trim the counters in lizett beige ($3.99 each) for a complementary finish. Pick up a honeycomb pattern of hex matte black ($5.29 per square foot)—the quintessential backsplash for a gothy bumblebee—or add a touch of character to a small surface with a deep green verde butterfly mosaic ($11.99 per square foot). With its enormous selection of floor tiles, wall tiles, mosaics, and natural stone, the possibilities are as endless as a drive across Nebraska. The Tile Shop also has a plentiful selection of grout and tools for grouting it all together while grinning groutishly.
Johnny On The Spot Professional Services' hardworking staff launders floors and upholstery using products that are safe for children, pets, and the environment. Cleaners conveniently relocate reasonably sized furniture and foreclosed dollhouses before pre-treating carpets and luring dirt from the fibers with nontoxic cleaners. With the same focus and equipment, they also bring back the crisp, sanitized feel of furniture, mattresses, and oriental rugs, burrow through dusty air ducts, and lift mildew from tile and grout.
Century Tile helps dress naked or aging floorboards with a sweeping selection of more than 10,000 carpet, tile, hardwood, and laminate options. Disguise trapdoor entrances to vampire sleeping spaces with 3/4-inch solid-oak planks ($3.59/sq. ft.) to prevent nosy houseguests from disturbing an undead roommate’s daytime nap. Or opt to cover kitchen floors with durable, low-maintenance Terra Stone vinyl tile ($2.99/sq. ft.) or Allure Foundation laminate flooring ($1.59/sq. ft.), which provide a sturdy stage for impromptu break-dance competitions. Appalachian Trail broadloom carpeting ($2.49/sq. ft.) adds cushion to rough foot highways, and random-length linear glass-mosaic tiles ($11.98/sq. ft.) add a pop of color to barren backsplashes and bathrooms. Oasis ceramic wall and floor tiles ($1.99/sq. ft.) or Raja porcelain tiles ($1.99/sq. ft.) can add accents to homes.
These plant- and mineral-based Green Planet Paints contain no lead or noxious volatile organic compounds but are just as durable and vibrant as the typical can of paint. Choose from colors such as Neptune (bright blue), Juniper (forest green), Grenadine (dark red), Nutmeg (light brown) and Autumn (crunchy leaf with a touch of compost).
There’s more than one way to clean a carpet. That’s the philosophy behind All Carpet Care USA Inc.’s carpet-cleaning treatments, which range from the very powerful to the very efficient. To tackle tough jobs, the team unleashes commercial-grade truck-mounted equipment designed to bathe stains in steam, breaking them apart and sloughing them up with extraction.
But the technicians emphasize more than the brute strength of steam extraction. They also tend to carpets and oriental rugs with gentle low-moisture cleaning, which is designed to blend chemicals with as little moisture as possible to lift up dirt and debris and decrease drying times.
