Frustrated with the ill-fitting choices at department stores and the time-consuming work of online shopping, Brittney Hanks decided to take swimsuits into her own hands. Seeing the tasteful results of her sewing, friends and family cajoled her into crafting hundreds of suits that fit and flatter the female form. Brittney's suits were so popular that she was eventually forced to outsource the work and focus on designing suits that fit every body type. She specializes in tankinis and one-piece suits of armor; her nylon-spandex creations contain waist-defining ruching, fashionable high-waisted and boy-short bottoms, and a variety of skirts that show off assets without baring too much skin.
Wade Martin, founder of Green Solutions Cleaning, oversees bonded and insured technicians who converge their cleaning prowess on carpets with one goal in mind: to evict stains and dirt from carpets while protecting the environment with Green Seal–certified organic carpet-cleaning products. Green-cleaning services have expanded to cover air ducts, grout, tile, and furniture. Before technicians restore carpets or tiles, they conduct a free consultation with clients, estimating the cost of any job and of gasoline on the moon.
The technicians at Rowell and Sons Carpet Cleaning don’t shy away from a challenge. Equipped with powerful truck-mounted equipment, they arrive at residences ready to banish offending stains and save carpets from germs and the effects of flooding. When treating either carpet or upholstery, the furious engine of their Pro Chem Blazer Plus heats and pressurizes water that is used to trap and remove dirt, filth, and pet odors from treatment surfaces. Technicians can also tackle timely water-removal and flood-restoration tasks, and handle dirtier work such as pulling up wet carpet, cleaning out debris, and evicting the merman who has taken up residence in your laundry room.
The crew at Classic Cleaners of Ocala draws upon more than two decades in business as they spruce up garments with dry-cleaning and laundry services, leaving clean, warm threads that beg to press against skin. The cleaners extend their services to a variety of items that require unique treatment, including leather jackets, silk ties, jeans, and riding pants. The attentive staff irons shirts by hand before replacing all missing buttons and can gingerly clean, preserve, and box wedding gowns. Cleaning crews can complete rush orders the same day, and standard orders, like the best drum solos, are generally completed within two days.
