Rave reviews from some of our valued clients

“Exceptional, professional service. Great customer service. Informative, upfront about costs and overall more than satisfied with the work on the carpets. Appreciated discount and all the extra efforts that will keep us coming back to your company. Thank you for your excellent service.” Bruce and Nikki Linquist

“It was just incredible how he brought back the life into my carpet. Nick did an awesome job and was very friendly. Excellent customer service with highly qualified personnel. Terrific pricing and quality work.” Naomi Lardner

“Great! Everyone that comes is always concerned that I am happy about the end product. There was a nasty grease stain in my den/office that I had tried to clean without success but it came right up when your guy came. I like getting the coupon for a discount if I get my carpets cleaned every 6 months. It encourages me to have cleaner carpets and a cleaner home!” Sheri Anderson

6 ways you can extend the life and beauty of your carpet

  • Have people remove their shoes.  Post a polite sign on the door if you have to.  This is one of the biggest ways you can start saving your carpet today! 

 

  • Vacuum frequently.  Your frequency will depend on the level of foot traffic and amount of people and pets in your home.  But you can NEVER vacuum too much.

 

  • Keep pet accidents to a minimum.  NOTHING ruins carpets faster than urine.  Do whatever you have to do to keep the accidents off the carpet.

 

  • Clean spots and spills immediately. But DON’T use any of the do it your self “carpet cleaning” products you see advertised on the TV.  These products are the fastest way to a big, dirt attracting, sticky residue spot.  Simply use very hot tap water with some mild detergent (no bleach agents) and clean, white, dry rags.  Soak and blot.  Never rub.

 

  • Get your carpets professionally cleaned every 6-12 months.  NOTHING extends the life of your carpet like this step.  Even dirt you cannot see can be deep inside the carpets breaking down and wearing the fibers.  It’s the only way to prevent permanent traffic lanes and wear patterns.  Remember this rule of thumb: Clean before your carpet LOOKS dirty to prevent wear and tear – it’s time not dirt that you should judge by.

 

  • Get your carpet professionally protected at least every other cleaning. The factory finish is removed with wear and cleanings.  This finish is a protective barrier between your carpet and soils, oils, stains and general wear and tear.  Ignoring this step will shorten the life span of your carpet considerably.
