Meet the Team

Chantal & Tiki in the office

Being a small business, we value customer service above everything else. We believe that who answers the phone has just as much of an impact as the technician knocking on the door. Depending on when you call, you’ll be speaking to either Tiki or Chantal.

Tiki is the co-owner of the business. She has a heart for helping others, something she gets to act out in her day-to-day time in the office. She always knows how to ask just the right questions in order to provide you with the most accurate estimate of cost and time.

Chantal came to A+ Carpet Cleaning in the Fall of 2022. She loves organization, spreadsheets, as well as being of service to others. She has a background with family-business, and believes in the A+ principals of going the extra mile every time.

Mike is the founder and co-owner of A+ Carpet Cleaning. He has over 20 years of experience with carpet cleaning, and is a wearer of many hats. He started the business with true customer care in mind, feeling that he could provide excellent service to the community and have fun providing that service for neighbors. He has appreciated that running a business gave him the opportunity to raise his sons with work ethic.

Mike enjoys treating other people’s homes with the same care and intentionality he does his own. He is always happy to answer questions and educate others on carpet care, and his precision and attention to detail cannot be matched.

Amber is our office pup! She was born into A+ Carpet Cleaning and has brightened the environment with her sweet demeanor. She loves getting to meet new people when they come to drop off area rugs. She is also a volunteer with an assisted living facility and a youth group. When Amber isn’t out in the world spreading joy, she’s often in the office, under the desk, where she likes to rest (as well as secretly supervise our office staff).

Bringing Amber into the family coincidentally introduced some hands-on experience with dealing with pet accidents. Now we can speak from both professional and personal experience when it comes to cleaning a home with pets.

Carpets should be deep cleaned every 12-18 months to keep them in good condition and extend their lifespan. It is also recommended to deep clean carpets if they are heavily soiled or stained since vacuuming alone will not be enough. Regular vacuuming can help maintain the carpets between deep cleaning sessions.

Air ducts should be cleaned because they can accumulate dust and debris over time, which can lead to poor air quality inside the home. Cleaning air ducts helps to reduce the amount of dust in your home, as well as improve indoor air quality. It is also recommended that air ducts be cleaned if there has been any recent renovation or construction work in the home, as this can cause a lot of debris to accumulate in air ducts. It is important to have your air ducts cleaned regularly, as it can help improve energy efficiency and reduce utility bills. Additionally, having clean air ducts helps to extend the life of your HVAC system.

Carpet cleaning is a job best left to professionals, as they have the right tools and techniques to thoroughly clean carpets without damaging them. Professionals can also clean hard-to-reach areas of the carpet that may not be accessible with DIY methods. Additionally, they use high-quality cleaning solutions that are specifically designed to remove dirt and stains while also protecting and preserving the carpet’s fibers. Professional carpet cleaners can make sure your carpets look new and last longer. This is an important investment in the longevity of your home’s carpets that you should not overlook.

Carpet stretching is an important process used in the maintenance of carpets and rugs. It is used to extend or stretch out carpet that has been damaged by age, wear, or improper installation. Through this process, the tension on the carpet is released and it can be repaired using specially designed tools.

Upholstery cleaning is an important part of overall home maintenance. Professional upholstery cleaning extends the life of your furniture and helps you maintain a clean, healthy house. Professional upholstery cleaners can effectively remove dirt, mildew, dust mites, and stains that are difficult to remove with regular vacuuming alone. Thank you Advanced Cleaning Service for providing this information!

When it comes to repairing your carpet, there are some general guidelines to follow in order to maximize the longevity of your carpet. If you notice any signs or symptoms of damage or wear and tear, then it is best to address the issue as soon as possible.

Spot carpet cleaning is a process of treating localized spots and stains on your carpets. It takes less time than traditional deep cleaning methods, but can still be quite effective in removing dirt, odors, and other contaminants. Spot carpet cleaning works by applying a powerful solution to the affected area which effectively breaks down the stain/soil particles. The soil is then extracted from the fibers with high-pressure suctioning equipment that leaves little residue behind and prevents any further damage from occurring.
