Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Kiwi Clean Carpet
Kiwi Clean Carpet combines their 20 years of experience with trained technicians and steam cleaning equipment all in order to render carpets as clean as the day they were just peach fuzz on the floors of an empty room. The technicians employ a six-step carpet cleaning process that includes high-powered extractions, a specially formulated pH-balancing fiber rinse, and deodorizer. This way, they're able to remove deep layers of dirt and stains and leave the carpet looking spotless, feeling soft, and smelling nice. Kiwi's staff also offer maid services—their maids work with the client to formulate a 48-point checklist that's tailored to the client's needs. That means that in addition to the essentials—kitchens, bathrooms, floors—clients can choose what they'd like the maid to direct their focus to. The staff also uses Green Seal-certified green products, HEPA vacuums, and microfibers in order to keep the planet as clean as the homes they service. Other services include upholstery, tile and grout, and duct cleaning.
