Recognized by the Florida Environmental Protection Agency as a green business, Dry Clean Xpress's state-of-the-art Firbimatic carbon-absorption system and biodegradable detergent lessen the company's carbon footprint while diminishing the prevalence of stains. Its eco-friendly dry-cleaning services purify the fibers of a wide variety of items, ranging from wedding gowns to comforters. The family-owned company helps dirt and grime meet their end at one of many locations across Southern Florida, where clothes can be dropped off by their owners or by Dry Clean Xpress's fleet of delivery vans. Dry Clean Xpress can also clean up the upholstery, comforters, and carpet of any yacht's interior, and its alteration services tailor overgrown dresses or mend pockets torn open by seagulls vying for lunch money.
The staff at this family-owned-and-operated business meticulously clean and inspect garments and strive to thoroughly extract stains and odors on the first try. When they aren't freshening shirts, ties, and dresses, they perform skillful alterations and revive comforters exhausted by frequent pillow fights.
Named 2010 "Best Hair Salon" in Tennessee Valley by CityVoter and in the 2009 Huntsville Times' Reader's Choice Awards, Salon Allure shapes, soothes, and shears tresses with a talented team of designers and Redken shampoos and products. A women's haircut and style ($29 and up) tames hair beasts, a foil treatment ($75 and up) highlights strands with accuracy, and a gloss or glaze ($30 and up) makes hair as shiny as a new penny covered in baby oil.
The stain slayers at Pine Lake Laundry ameliorate household laundry duties by offering expert washing, folding, and ironing services for a wide range of hard-to-clean items. Tote in a week's worth of soiled colors and whites for wash-and-fold service, ($1.10/lb.), and the friendly staff will sort it, bleach it if necessary, help it with its homework, and pack it up to go home looking as neat and crisp as the day it first showed up on your closet's doorstep. Dry-cleaning services eschew the rough cycles of the washing machine in favor of extracting dirt and stains with gentle, effective chemistry. Spruce up a pair of slacks ($5), relieve bedroom comforters of unintentional cookie crumbs and milk moustaches ($30), or thoroughly freshen a suit for upcoming business meetings or formal events ($10). Clothes that are clean but crumpled can opt out of bath time and put the heat on unflattering folds instead, compliments of the shop's ironing services ($2.25+/item), and extra hangers are available for purchase to help newly pressed pants maintain their new orderly outlook.
