Some drivers may prefer to impress onlookers with a shiny, reflective finish on their car. Others may opt to treat their carpool passengers or favorite morning-radio hosts to freshly laundered interiors. Knowing that motorists have different priorities, Wax Man Industries augments whole-car details with a full spectrum of customized services, which allow drivers to assemble a detail tailored to their own comfort and cosmetic preferences.
With the help of nanotechnology products, including high-gloss waxes and sanitizing shampoos, the detailers hone in on smeared exteriors, stained upholstery, and greasy engines to transform every car their sponges touch into a vehicle that looks like it escaped from a Ferrari daycare. Included in the roster of detail services are more-involved restoration techniques, including buffing, sanding, and oxidation treatments performed with a 24-hour turnaround and a money-back guarantee in case clients aren't satisfied. In addition to four-wheeled vehicles, the technicians also revamp boats, airplanes, trailers, and motorcycles to ensure exteriors gleam on the sea, in the air, and through action-movie stunts through the air into the sea.
With 15 years of experience, the techs at Wax Man Industries have also extended their cleaning know-how into homes in the form of carpet cleaning powered by hot-water-extraction techniques. They pore over carpets with double-pass cleaning strokes and double-drying strokes that shorten the dry time overall. Even though they remorselessly nix deep-seated stains and blotches, their cleaning techniques are hypoallergenic and remain safe for kids and pets alike.
Today's Groupon is a welcome sight for any eco-eye: $40 for two rooms of carpet cleaning from environmentally friendly cleaning company Absolute Carpet Care (a $85 value). Remove coffee stains, beach-sand stains, and reindeer cud in about 15 minutes per room without harming the overly sensitive earth.The Bunkers’ carpets, like their opinions on the delicate social issues of the day, were no mere set dressing, and often became the focus of popular episodes. For instance, more Americans watched the 1978 episode “My Carpet For My Country,” in which Meathead tries to stop the Vietnam War, than were alive at the time. Thanks to All In The Family, carpets today are just as common in homes as the sound of a flushing toilet on network TV.
One of the main disadvantages of traditional carpet cleaning is the long drying times—carpets can be oversaturated with water and stay damp for days. That's not the case with Air Fresh Chem-Dry's carpet-cleaning services, which use an organic, chemical-free, and nontoxic carbonated cleaner that requires a quarter of the amount of water used by traditional cleaning methods to thoroughly degrime carpets. Technicians apply the carbonated formula with a low-pressure-spray machine that covers carpets and furniture with microscopic carbonated bubbles. These bubbles work to separate soil and long-lost cell phones from fibers and push them to the surface, where they are swept away. The formula and low amount of water used ensure that most carpets dry in one to two hours. In addition to cleaning carpets and furniture, the technicians scour tile and grout and polish patio stones, making them shinier than a sports car drizzled in olive oil.
At PACIFIC PARK AUTO CARE They like to say “the technicians love a challenge” the owner OSCAR NAJERA said “We love to diagnose problems that other people have failed to diagnose and we have a great success rate.” PACIFIC PARK AUTO CARE provides electrical work, computer diagnostics, factory recommended services.
Through innovation and a passion for creation, Eleanor Burns revolutionized the process by which quilts are made. She cast off the shackles of scissors and templates for a more visceral approach that combines the ripping and stripping of fabric with an assembly-line approach to sewing. The new process brought an exciting speed to an activity once known for taking months and causing anyone who attempted it to grow a 4-foot beard. To spread the word and bolster the quilting community, she released her first book, Make a Quilt in a Day––Log Cabin Pattern.
Thirty years and 100 quilt books and patterns later, she continues to promote the art of the quilt and to improve the efficiencies of quilt construction. Along with a staff of fellow seamstresses, she began Quilt in a Day to further spread her message through simple and social classes filled with thorough and accurate instruction. Beginners can register for classes or attend a demo day, where refreshments fuel entertainment and scraps of fabric fly.
