The word oikos means “house” in ancient Greek, a fitting namesake for Oiko Systems, LLC, whose coowner Nikos is a 4th-generation contractor and native Greek himself. While Nikos’s family tends to a museum standing amid the ancient battleground of Thermopylae, he and coowner Maria ensure modern houses stand the test of time through home-improvement and remodeling services. The insured technicians specialize in everything from basement finishing and drywall installation to painting rooms to cover crayon renditions of The School of Athens by precocious toddlers.
When it comes to keeping your home clean, there's only so much you can do alone. After the sinks have been scrubbed and the pile of laundry has been conquered, there may still be dust lurking somewhere sinister—in the vents that run through your home. Thankfully, that's where All Services Pro comes in. The family-owned company's licensed technicians have an average of 10 years of experience, so they know exactly what to do when they come across dust, mold, and ghostly apparitions. Their job only just begins inside the walls, though. After they're done removing allergens and particles, they can head outside to pressure-wash the exterior, clean the chimney, and remove leaves from gutters.
Shiny Carpet Cleaning's professional crews arrive at doorsteps determined to coax household dirt from its hiding spots and banish it with solutions that won?t harm children and pets.

Aside from carpet cleaning, the staffers also scrub grout, hand wash rugs, sanitize upholstery, and perform general housecleaning.
Yummy Indian food meets mellow décor in at this Tenleytown restaurant. As you enter the small about 50-seat Masala Art, you are welcomed by soothing music and mint-green walls adorned with tasteful artwork. The food is equally as vibrant on the plate, with much of the menu matching the vibrant colors of traditional Northern Indian cuisine. The house’s signature masala spice blends bring the heat, though not every dish leans on the heat. A favorite appetizer is the Aloo Tikki Chaat, fried potato cakes over chickpeas and sweet yogurt, while the Murg Makhani , known more affectionately as butter chicken, is one of the most frequently-ordered entrées. Portion sizes are filling, the service is attentive, the naan is fresh and the price is right – what’s not to like?
