Baltimore carpet cleaners give the royal treatment
Whether you live in Columbia, Ellicott City or Annapolis, you’re looking for great service, especially with stained or dirty carpets.
Here’s the latest Post of Happiness for great service from Baltimore-area carpet cleaners as selected by the Angie’s List Newsroom staff.
The royal treatment
George Kafkakis, owner of Royal Carpet Cleaners of Bel Air, treated Andre Kirnes like royalty. “Royal Carpet Cleaners is an exceptional company,” Kirnes says. “George came and cleaned all the carpets in my house along with a couch and recliner in my family room. He was able to get a stain out of the carpet in the basement that a previous carpet cleaner said they couldn’t.
"On top of that, I had an issue with water flooding in the basement later that afternoon after he had finished cleaning the carpets and left for the day," Kirnes says. "I called him back and he was at my house within a half hour cleaning the flood for me.”
Before and after
MJ Home Services & Flood Restoration of Glen Burnie swept away Daphne Clem. “They were very punctual, arriving well before the promised time,” she says. “They were also thorough with what they were going to do, how they would go about doing it, and a preview of the results — in that they did a small section of the carpet in each of the three rooms as a before and after.
"Since my carpet is light-colored, old and soiled from high traffic, the difference was dramatic," Clem says. "They did such a good job that I had them do my stairs and hallway. It was an extra cost, but it was worth it.”
A full head of steam
Baltimore Steam Cleaners shocked Fred Tuerk with their results. “My carpets are 15 years old,” he says. “The really dirty steps to the lower level, after being cleaned, look almost new. The rest of the carpets they cleaned do look new. They used real steam and the carpets smell clean — no chemical smell. I used another so-called steam cleaner in the past and there is no comparison.”
Chem-Dry of Annapolis solved Alexander Berberian’s dirty carpet dilemma. “They were great to work with,” he says. “They were able to fit into a busy moving schedule. I like Chem-Dry over regular steam cleaning because the carpets dry quicker.
"I had them do cleaning at two different places," says Berberian. "Their process works great on plush carpeting. They were very polite and friendly. I was able to leave them in the house without supervision. You won’t be disappointed with them.”
