Client Reviews & Testimonials

google logoI hired Everette to clean and repair some heavily damaged and soiled carpet. I really didn’t have much hope that it would ever look good again, but it looks great. I was very impressed with their work and they were very patient with me as well. I had to cancel with them twice, but they worked with my busy schedule to get it done for me. I highly recommend them. They are also a family-owned, small business. A big plus in my book.

google logoJamal and Quincy were fantastic, friendly, and professional from the first call, quote, and through the repairs as well. They’re pricing was fair and their work was done quickly and extremely well. I highly recommend this company.

I’ve used Everette Carpet Care twice at my rental property. The first time was to stretch the carpet, and they did a great job for a fair price. Jamal showed up on time, explained the process, and got the work done quickly.

I then had him come back to clean the carpets in my basement. I called him yesterday and he was able to come out today without any issue. He did a fantastic job, and got out all the stains (of which there were many), and the price was very reasonable! They are very professional, hard working, and provide great customer service.

~ Rick Hoydis

google logoWe recently purchased our home and needed the carpets throughout deep cleaned and some carpets stretched. Jamal, Donovan and Quincy arrived on time and walked the property with me thoroughly inspecting the carpets. Our master bedroom had two particularly tough stains to remove. Jamal tried several different techniques all of which helped but the carpet was just too far gone. To our surprise the company policy is “if they can’t clean the carpet-they’ll install them for free!” We now have beautiful new carpet!

My Apartment told me they would have to replace my WHOLE carpet for 4 inches worth of damage. These guys were phenomenal and did such an AMAZING job! Thank you so much! I will be using your carpet cleaning services soon!

~ Laken Harper

google logoContacted Everette Carpet Care & Restoration for carpet cleaning. My family recently welcomed a dog into our home and he had an accident. I wanted to get the carpet cleaned immediately. Jamal reached out quickly after I submitted my appointment form, understood the urgency of my request, and scheduled carpet cleaning within the next few days. Jamal and team showed up for the appointment enthusiastic and ready to get to work. They truly care about the quality of their work and took their time. It shows as my carpet looks newer than ever; pup accident odor and stain has been completely removed.
