My carpets have not smelled or looked so good since they were installed! Several great suggestions on carpet care and laminate care - thank you!

Mike is amazing. Fast to respond, accurate/fair pricing and does one hell of a job. Not only do the carpets look amazing but he helped educate me on the type of cheap carpet we have and how we can take care of it. I wish I had a before picture-we got a new puppy and the carpet was already in a bad state but he just added to it. It now looks soooo much better. Plus side? It dried so fast!!! Call him. You wont be disappointed.

Connoisseur carpet cleaning is hands down the best service I have ever gotten. We had a minor carpet emergency from one of our dogs and Mike told us he could be be there in an hour or so. He showed up, was very kind and had very reasonable rates. He really helped us out and did a fantastic job on our carpet. It looks brand new. Thank you again and I plan on using connoisseur for our cleaning service any time we need it. To anyone who reads this do not hesitate to use Connoisseur they are wonderful!

Professional, purposeful and diligent are words that best describe Mike Palliotet and his tile and grout cleaning/restoration service. Mike thoughtfully scoped the job and was extremely careful in all he did. He brings a wealth of experience and recommendations to the project. Very pleased with the results. Thank you, Mike.

Mike came to our house to clean a horrible stain in our carpet that was in a conspicuous place. He worked on it VERY hard and it is completely gone. He also cleaned our overstuffed chairs (3) and our sectional couch. The couch chaise was so worn and dark I thought I would need to get a new couch. It is about 9 years old and now looks brand new. He was also extremely professional, helpful and kind. Top notch. We plan to have him back for carpets and tile/grout. Thank you, sj

Mike was recommended by a Realtor friend of ours when I was looking for a new “carpet guy”. He is able to make our original, 4 year old, builders grade carpet look good every time he comes. He does a great job & his office always returns my calls in a timely manner. Customer service like Connoisseur’s is hard to find in N Nevada. I would recommend him to anyone.

Meet Mike & Paula

mike and paula

Mike and Paula Pailliotet have been involved in the carpet, upholstery and hard surface cleaning industry since 1986. Mike worked for two large cleaning companies in the area before he and Paula started their own carpet cleaning business in Santa Cruz Ca in 2001.

Their family run business is the highest 5 star rated carpet cleaning company on Yelp and wins “Best Of” awards year after year. Their son and daughter now run the day to day portion of business along with two great employees. Please check out our great reviews on Yelp.

Mike’s involvement on the education side of the carpet cleaning industry keeps him on top of the very latest in cleaning methods, solutions and equipment. He owns and operates the industry’s most popular and respected online discussion forum, which is credited for many positive and innovative changes to the carpet cleaning industry. Mike provides one on one training for new carpet cleaners and also hosts carpet cleaning seminars and conventions around the country each year.

Mike and Paula recently moved to Gardnerville NV to start part two of their life in the Carson Valley. Their family cabin in Bridgeport and a love for the Eastern Sierra brought them to this beautiful area. The new Connoisseur Carpet Cleaning “east” location offers the same great personal customer service and fantastic cleaning results of carpeting, upholstery and hard surface flooring. With 30 years of experience, innovative use of multiple methods and a heavy focus on eco-friendly cleaning solutions, you are sure to be thrilled!
