    They bid on my project and based on the reviews here, I picked them.

    At pickup, the quote provided shot up from about $500 to over $1,800 with a claim that there was mould on one of the rugs and that the rugs (2 Bokhara and a Moroccan Kilim that I had fully described in my project) were too delicate for the cleaning method quoted. He then tried haggling down to $900.

    Classic bait and switch. I declined and went with another bidder. My rugs are back, and look fantastic.

    I paid just over $700 for the 3 rugs (including some minor rebind repair on one). I was not looking for the cheapest bidder just the most professional one. And in my experience Sunlight was not that. Be careful.

    Haim S. from SunLight Fine Rug Care & Restoration replied to this review on December 17, 2014:

    To those claims and accusations, of Mr Olu, i can only say, that when he contacted us we specifically told him that in order to give him an accurate price we need to see the condition of his rugs. He insisted to get some kind of quote, and my brother Ben who was corresponded with him told him that the rate of $3 was only for basic cleaning, however we can not give you an exact quote based on sizes. Mr Olu than determined that the price was $500 based on that rate. Here is a quote from his correspondence.

    that is exactly why we offer free estimate on site so we can see the rugs condition and give you an accurate quote.

    Can I please get a quote specific to my 3 rugs which I fully describe as below, or confirm that your quote is $489. I don't want to select based on one price, and have to pay another:

    3' x 5' Moroccan Kilim (Wool)
    5' x 8' Wool
    9' x 12' Wool
    Ok. What would you need to provide a free onsite estimate?

    More than that, Thumbtack decided to remove his review saying that his review don't meet there criteria they have decided to remove it, but Mr Olu felt he insisted by checking it daily to make sure its still there, after he noticed its not he called them and complained and they agreed and put it on. What a shame.
    If a client has gotten a crapy service from us, if we ruined his rug i can understand, but in this case, Mr Olu got a better quote, and i am happy he did, so saying all of that about a company you didn't even had service with?????

    Upon checking on the review, and your communication with the customer (done through Thumbtackmessenger), we determined that the review does in fact not meet our terms of use, and therefore we removed the review.

    Excellent service and great communication.

  • 4/5 stars July 3, 2014

    Good job overall. It turned out to be more expensive than initially guided, but worth the price in the end.

    Sunlight did a great job on our two oriental area rugs. One was LONG overdue for a cleaning...it came back looking wonderful. We also appreciated the customer service (pick-up, delivery). Haim was on top of everything and delivered just when he said he would right after our move. He knows his stuff! Thanks again.

    SunLight Fine Rug Care & Restoration is one of an excellent carpet cleaning companies. I tried many carpet cleaning companies, but I am not satisfied by their work. I heard a lot about them and they provide me with a best carpet cleaning service and complete the work on time. I highly recommend them.

    Couch looks great.

  • 5/5 stars March 4, 2010

    I contacted Haim to clean my couch. His estimate was accurate, he was flexible on timing, showed up when he said he would, and did excellent work.

    I'd highly recommend him.

Question and answer

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. i don't subcontract my work, i do it my self, its a family own business, we do all cleaning restoration for oriental rugs by hand we don't use machinery, our work is guaranteed, and been supervised by Haim the owner him self. We care about the work very much, most of our clients are referrals of word of mouth.So at the end we want to see you only calling us for more, and be a part of our family, we try to create a community of people who have interst in what we do.
