  • 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!

    I recently contacted Gary at Advanced Carpet Cleaning to get my living room and hallway cleaned before putting the house up for sale. Gary was excellent to deal with and the crew that came to my house was very respectful professional. The carpets look great and I was very impressed with the level of professionalism by the company. Appointment time was made with ease and the communication before and after was great. I received a follow-up phone call from Gary on a Saturday checking to see how the service was. I will definitely be using this service in the future and recommend them to anyone looking for service!!
