Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.
A. Three recent jobs we had:
1. She was a regular customer (elderly) and we have serviced her carpets for many years. After the cleaning she stated that she did not have money on her due to her checks still coming in the mail. We did not mine leaving her house without payment because we understand things happen and we know our customers are good for it. Sure enough, she sent us a check via mail, along with a " Thank you" card and how she was pleased and always pleased with our services and states how she loves talking with our Tech ( Nathan), he's very friendly.
2. We just did a major clothing store called DOTS and they need VCT ( Strip and Wax ) and Carpet cleaning. 48 hours after the work was completed they emailed our management company stating how the floors look great!
3. This customer was a return customer from a special we ran on Groupon several months ago for Carpet Cleaning. She stated that she has found her Cleaning company and loves our prices even when we are not running specials.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. Do you warranty all your work and what does specials entail? Some times specials can exclude certain items due to the process used to complete the service. Steps and Area rug are typically not included in the specials. Steps are cleaned individually and are a time consuming process to be cleaned correctly. Area Rugs can range from contemporary poly blend to hand woven wool. Many Orientals and hand woven need special attention and are hand cleaned with special equipment.

A. If a company is insured to protect you as a homeowner.
What type of specials do they have and what does it include?
How long have they been in business?
Do they warrany their work?
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. Our work stands out above other because we offer very good prices compared to other local listings and even the bigger company's. People tell us our technicians are friendly, work hard to please our customers and they can't get over the priced compared to others.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I love dealing with the customer's. We meet a variety of different people everyday and they talk to us as if we were family and I love hearing their stories such as where their from or their kids, etc. I love interaction, I feel as if the customer is more then a client, they are a friend.
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. Most customers ask what's the difference between dry foam method and steam cleaning. Basically dry foam does not soak the carpet and dries within 1- 2 hours and reduces the time the customer is unable to return to their normal routine. This process reduces the chance of mold growth in the under padding of your carpets. Many modular and mobile homes have sub-flooring which can be damaged due to excessive moisture dry foam uses very little water to activate the foam.
Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?
A. One of our customer's who has been using us since we opened gets her carpet done every year before the holiday's and one this year that has past (2011) she could not afford and because she has been a long time customer, we gave her a free cleaning. She was so thankful and she made our day by just her smiling.
Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. My Uncle owned the company before us and we all work together. In 2011 my Uncle became ill and we didn't want to see all his hard work go down hill, so my Mother ( Susan Cantone ) and I (Sonia) decided to take over the company and give it a make over. Before we only did carpet, now we offer all kinds of services such as Tile and Grout, VCT ( Strip and wax), Upholstery, wood flooring etc. We can do almost all types of flooring. What makes our company one of the top small businesses in our area, is the fact we are a Family Owned and Operated Company and we treat our customers as family. I feel that is why customer's have stayed with us since the beginning ( 2002 ).
Q. What are you currently working on improving?
A. We are currently working on our Office we just opened in Hudson ( 12378 US Highway 19 N. Hudson, FL 34667 ).
We want to make our office customer friendly and let them know they can come and ask questions or even if it's just for a chat. We also have Pick up and Drop off service for our customers with area rugs. Beacon Woods Restaurant that is very popular and has great food is located in the same plaza.
