From our clients

“I think everything they’ve done for us is excellent. They’re efficient, prompt, and the price is always right. I’ve always had a positive experience. They’re always very timely.”

Alice S.

“Scott is very knowledgeable, and we use them quite a bit. We have two dogs, and we generally use them several times a year. We have always been satisfied. I also like Scott personally.”

Julie P.

“They responded very quickly to my request for service. They were on time, courteous, and they cleaned up very well. They price was also very reasonable, and they did a good job. They pinpointed the stains and got the job done. They are honest, and they have integrity.”

Petra B.

“I’ve had my carpets cleaned by many companies throughout the years, and every company pales in comparison to Start Fresh Restoration & Carpet connoisseurs. Scott will definitely get your carpet clean. The machine he uses sucks the water out of the carpet so it dries extremely fast.

He always shows up on time and does a thorough job. I’ve been using them for about 25 years.”
