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.

The Carpet Scientist
The Carpet Scientist takes a precise approach to carpet cleaning. Its techs start by pre-treating soiled areas with an all-natural cleaner that helps break up dirt and stains so they're easier to remove. Then, once the soil is loosened, it's extracted using a truck-mounted vacuum, before powerful steamers are deployed to clean the carpets down to the pad. Best of all, the process leave behind no residue and is effective on carpets of all thickness and flying abilities. In addition to treating carpets, the crews can also clear dryer vents to prevent household fires and clean air ducts to remove mold and allergens and make the air easier to breathe.
