Rug Cleaning

After a few disappointing encounters with this company - initially, the technician didn't improve the stain that I hired them to clean and managed to make an additional stain that was even more visible - the owner and technician made every effort to right their mistakes and return my rug in great condition, which they did. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is that I wish they were a little easier to get ahold of - I typically got a machine instead of a human most times that I called - and it was kind of a stressful process from beginning to end. I really do appreciate their efforts to correct their mistakes and leave me satisfied. All's well that ends well.

Mattress Cleaning

Both gentlemen were courteous and very professional. Probably the best (and quickest) mattress cleaning I’ve had done in the city. Highly recommend!

Pete, thank you so much for your kind and honest review. It truly means the world to us! It was really rad meeting these fellas and having the opportunity to steam wash a mattress for them. Could not ask for better customers and positive atmosphere to work with!

Upholstery and Furniture Cleaning

Had a bit of a hiccup at the start because they didn’t bring the right chemicals but totally worth them having to come back— they also threw in a discount too for the mistake. Would (and already have) recommended to friend!

They did a very thorough job and my sofa looks like new. Stains were completely removed. Very happy with their work and would totally use their services again..

Margo, we sincerely thank you for this review, you are truly most appreciated client, who despite being frustrated for our 30-min delay the day of the steam cleaning appointment in New York City, still gave us the chance and opportunity to steam and sanitize her upholstery, giving us the opportunity to win her trust and confidence in our service, this time, and for many years to come. We couldn’t be more delighted when our clients receive the steam cleaning experience they deserve. Above all else, we aim to deliver excellent customer experience to each and every New Yorker, and if we come short, we will always and forever make it right. For the love of our client, their happiness and health. 1 Guy With A Vac, New York City Fabric Upholstery Steam Cleaning Specialists

1GuyWithAVac was incredible! Our couch has become a mess with having a dog and children, but he came to our rescue and it looks better than ever! I highly recommend 1GuyWithAVac. If I could give 10 stars I would. Incredibly professional, prompt, and courteous!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Removing dust-mites, bacteria and allergens, as well upholstery steam cleaning and extraction of grease and dirt stains from your family’s everyday home soft-surfaces may not always be on top of mind cleaning chore. Yet, it’s something infection and dermatology doctors say we should do regularly to eliminate the irritants and germs from our home. Our prices reflect an accurate, and fair value, to professionally steam, sanitize and restore your fabric soft-surfaces and upholstery, without compromising on technician expertise, premium solvents, detergent and shampoos, as well as the maintenance and up-keep of the machines used to clean the fabrics.
