  • I can't recommend Advanced Carpet Care enough. Their work is excellent and the prices are great too. They came with 2 workers, which really speeds things up. They also helped move all my furniture out of the way so they could clean as much carpet as possible. I typically see carpet cleaners just go around obstacles, but these guys actually move stuff so they can be very thorough. After they left, the carpet looked like new and smelled fresh. We've been putting off a carpet cleaning because of the chemicals, but these guys can use non-toxic solutions and still leave you with really clean carpet. If you need a little more cleaning power, they can use a mild detergent that is still very earth-friendly. Lastly, they are a local business, and I prefer giving my money to the smaller, service-minded businesses over a huge corporation.

    Just wanted you to know what a GREAT job your men did on cleaning our carpet last week! This was the first time I tried your company and I was thoroughly impressed. Your men came in and asked if there were any stains that they needed to pre-treat. They gave special attention to those areas, getting them to look just like new!I would highly recommend your company! And your employees were extremely professional.

    Gary and his cleaning partner did an outstanding job deep cleaning our entire house. They were prompt, wore masks inside our home and worked very quickly and efficiently for almost 2 hours. Both gentlemen were engaging, polite and very professional. Our carpets look brand new! My husband and I are very pleased with the job that Advanced Carpet Care did and would highly recommend this service to anyone that needs their carpets cleaned!
