Reviews From Around The Web

I was incredibly impressed with the service I received from Connoisseur Carpet Cleaning. Light cream carpet and two large dogs in my home is not always the best combination. Mike was not phased at all by the state of my carpet. He meticulously went room by room conquering every stain as if it was his own home. The results were remarkable! He was a joy to have in my home. I couldn't be happier. I will definitely be calling him in the near future.

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.

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 does excellent work, and is very well equipped for almost any job. Last year he cleaned up a large, grease and oil stained garage floor for me. I was surprised at how well it turned out. This year, he re-grouted our shower floor, cleaned the whole inside including the the water spotted glass, and sealed the grout. Almost like new. Plus, he shows up.
