With the help of a high-powered, 48-inch fan, Clean Air America, Inc.'s truck-mounted vacuum system extracts dust, dirt, and allergens out of ventilation systems at a rate of 16,000 cubic feet of air per minute. To put that in perspective, traditional portable or truck-mounted vacuums muster between 400 and 4,000 cubic feet per minute on a good day. Before each session, technicians send an infrared camera into the ductwork to map out every inch of dust or reveal enclaves of ninjas hiding there. Then they move in with special brushes and scrubbing tools, leaving homes with cleaner air and fewer odors.
The staff members at The Aurora Kennel know that boarding a cat or dog can cause stress for both the animal and its owner, which is why they give personal attention to all of their furry guests. Boasting 43 indoor and outdoor runs, each dog is able to have its own private space complete with a bed, blanket, food, and water. At the facility’s fully enclosed play area, staffers take time to toss around toys and let pups run across 1,600 square feet of outdoor space during one-on-one sessions.
To avoid unnecessary excitement, The Aurora Kennel's staff keeps unfamiliar pets separate and limits pickup and drop-off times to select hours. It also requires that all animals stay up to date on vaccines and sign a temporary peace treaty between cats and dogs. To ensure pet owners are fully informed about their services, the kennel publishes a handy Stuff You Need to Know page.
Lori Mason can trace her shutterbug streak back to her grandparents, who ran Smith Studios in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. When clients asked for Lester Smith for color portraits, Lester's wife, Annette, would carefully enhance each photo with color by hand. Growing up looking at her grandparents' hand-colored photos, Lori developed an interest in photography that blossomed into a career when she armed herself with a Canon 7D and a photography certification from the University of South Florida. Lori's clients range from expectant mothers to graduating high-school seniors; a particular specialty is newborns as young as 1 week old, whose beaks often haven’t even fallen off yet.
The efficiency experts at WeatherKing Heating and Air Conditioning drag domestic climate systems into the digital age with high-tech gadgetry. WeatherKing's techs, armed with meticulous training and science, deploy to homes to help clients work out cost-effective, convenient ways to keep living spaces comfortable. Rather than outright replacing furnaces, air conditioners, or barbecue pits filled with old newspaper, techs take the time to run through options that might include introducing an existing furnace to a touchscreen thermostat that's synced with WiFi to monitor energy output.
The staff also keeps homeowners breathing easy. Duct cleaning seeks out and eradicates mold and allergens stationed in vents, and heat-recovery ventilators purify musty in-home air, redirecting it back into the heating system and recycling up to 84% of otherwise wasted energy. The company’s motto—“We treat you the way we want our own family to be treated”—undergirds each of its services. To this end, dispatchers man phones 24 hours a day, at the ready to send out crews to replace furnaces, subdue burst pipes, or disperse the gang of mermen that have taken over the guest bathroom.
