    My first experience with Advanced Carpet Care was in my own home. To say I was impressed with their quality of service would be an understatement. Their technicians far exceeded expectations. It was more than evident that every piece of furniture was moved to ensure a thorough cleaning of every inch of carpet in my home. When it became necessary to clean the carpets in one of our large facilities, I was thrilled to learn that Advanced Carpet Care had been awarded the job. Once again, they knocked the ball out of the park. They completed the job in a single night and were able to remove all the soiled spots in the building. Their customer service team demonstrated a high level of professionalism and friendliness and has become one of our preferred vendors. Great work Advanced Carpet Care!
