Central Rug & Carpet Co., Inc. traces its roots back to 1925 when it first opened its 5,000-square-foot showroom. Today, that space features a variety of high-quality carpets and more than 700 rugs hanging on racks for easy viewing. Their selection of wool and silk rugs on display includes traditional Persian and Pakistani rugs, as well as ones from the Wools of New Zealand brand. Their inventory includes both hand- and machine-woven products in contemporary styles as well as a multitude of Tibetan rugs. When they aren’t selling floor coverings, the store’s experts are cleaning and repairing them. Insured technicians can show up at homes to oust grime from carpets or tend to rugs in-house to remove guacamole and salsa stains caused by trying to transform the living-room rug into a burrito.

As their name implies, Greenwise specializes in 100% eco-friendly landscaping services. Their maintenance packages for residential or commercial lawns use sustainable, renewable alternative products to keep Mother Nature from giving them a stern lecture. Propane- or electric-driven mowers trim grass with low amounts of emissions and their grass seed is fused with beneficial fungi that nourish turf without the need for added chemicals. Additionally, their fertilizers use nutrient-rich compost comprised of molasses and yeast, and weeds and harmful insects are eliminated with nontoxic, all-natural products.
Greenwise’s devotion to lowering carbon footprints extends to their landscaping design as well. They plant organic gardens that blossom with fresh fruits and vegetables to add aesthetic beauty to yards and cut down on trips to the grocer. They are also proponents of working with native flora, which make for a more sustainable garden and attract native birds and butterflies to yards to entertain bored lawn ornaments.
After more than three decades of operation, the landscaping technicians at Exquisite Landscapes Unlimited have the business of lawn care down to a science. They bring the tools in their belts and the can-do attitudes sparkling in their eyeballs to every job, performing a range of landscape design and upkeep services from custom installations to routine maintenance work such as mowing, weeding, and ironing tree leaves. Homeowners can recruit their green thumbs on a one-time or recurring basis, and then bask in the compliments from neighbors that are sure to follow.
The skilled, insured technicians of GreenAirCare favor eco-friendly methods and products when cleaning and reconditioning homes' heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems. During duct cleaning, for example, crews cut down on harmful particles by using a HEPA-filtered negative-pressure vacuum system that draws out built-up debris through the air vents. With cleaner ducts, homes harbor less dust, mold, poltergeists, and other health hazards. Dryer-vent cleanings similarly improve home health by minimizing fire risk as a rotary brush spins at more than 500 RPM to clear away lint, animal hair, and flame-tempting fibers. GreenAirCare's technicians also cleanse home air by supplying clients with products such as electrostatic filters and UVC germicidal air purifiers.
