Recent Review: We came home from a long vacation and saw our house with new eyes and realized that there was a lot of cleaning and repair that needs to be done. My husband and I work long hours and just don't have a lot of time for DIY projects anymore, so I hopped onto Angie's List to start research on cleaning our carpets and fabric sofas, which hadn't been done in almost 5 years, and our grout, which had never been cleaned since we bought the house almost 9 years ago. I did not seek multiple bids from various providers, but gauged an average price from reviews and read reviews for cleaner details before determining I would try Carpet Wizard first. I knew what I wanted to pay and what the typical rates were looking like, and unless the quote was a complete surprise, I was happy to save time and book with one quote. Gus contacted me to set up a time to stop by to give a quote. We arranged this by text. Gus accommodated our request to meet with him on a weekend since we both have difficulty finding time to be home during the weekdays due to our work schedules. After the quote, which I felt was very fair given the amount of time it would have cost my husband and I to try to do the work ourselves (with less professional equipment), we scheduled a work day. Gus arrived on the scheduled weekday with his co-worker, Martin, and they promptly got to work. Both men were friendly and professional. I didn't think our staircase would look ok because it was so dirty, but it looks great. Our sofas are a light linen butter yellow color and we know they will never be really clean again, so the improvement that Carpet Wizard made was notable and great given what they had to start with. There was a large juice stain on one of our dining room chairs that was gone afterwards and the chairs look great. Our area rug, which is a medium pile zebra print had a lot of grime on the white areas, which look clean and clear now. But what was most impressive was how clean our grout was after they finished. We sealed the grout ourselves afterwards so I was up close to every inch of the grout afterwards and will say that I was delighted by how far into corners and along the kitchen cabinetry kick boards they went to really clean the grout. I don't know that I would have been that meticulous if I tried to do it myself. They cleaned grout where I never noticed there was grout. They also buffed all the floor tile which really made it all look fantastic. Remember, this is grout that was near white to start and was almost black through much of the kitchen when Carpet Wizard arrived. All is light and bright now. Finally, if it is of concern to the women out there...I was home alone with Gus and Martin and felt no concern about this at all. Very nice people with pride in what they do.
