Hey Everyone! Tyler here-

Now I know I usually write about awesome things to do and see, right here in Texas. However, I am going to do a little something different this time.

So my sister in law just experienced some major damage to her carpets. My two-year-old nephew is a one-man demolition team and an expert at grape juice launching. How can such a little person make such a mess? Why she ever thought that choosing beige carpeting was the way to go, is beyond me. Anyway, she was telling me how great the people at Rockford Carpet Cleaning are and how they managed to save her carpet when she was sure that it was a lost cause.  I thought that it deserved a shout out.

I looked at their site and spoke with them, too. The owner said, “Tough stains and odors are no match for us!” and he wasn’t kidding! In fact, I asked him to tell me a little more about his company and here it is…

So what do you think the biggest challenge is for people who call you?

That’s easy, they work hard at keeping their home looking clean, but the flooring is still looking old and dirty. Maybe they’ve sprayed air freshener a thousand times and the home still smells musty. They wonder how they are ever going to get the home looking and smelling fresh again. This is where we come in.

What is the toughest to work on?

Stains that have been allowed to sit and saturate, oily stains and liquids allowed to penetrate through to the carpet’s padding. However, that is where we use our equipment that has been specially designed for commercial and residential use. I don’t care what they tell you about a home carpet cleaner…it is good for touch up but when it really matters, go with the pros. Those machines you buy from your local store are just not going to give you the same results. Don’t even get me started on the machines you rent. You have no idea how old they are or how well they are maintained. You might just end up with a soggy mess on your hands.

Are there and stains that you won’t tackle?

We clean everything from moon dust to food stains and ground in dirt. Whether you’ve tracked mud, spilled a beverage, or dropped some barbecue on to your carpets, ROCKFORD CARPET CLEANING can clean it. Don’t struggle with trying to handle tough stains with store-bought cleaners. Let the professionals at ROCKFORD CARPET CLEANING take care of it.

So, there you have it. You can trust them to take care of whatever your problem is with your carpets.

  • Pet Stains
  • Pet Odors
  • Food and Beverage Stains
  • Dirt
  • Paint
  • Stain Protection
  • Deodorizing
  • Area Rugs
  • And more!

They are Toddler Tested and approved by (my) big sister!

When you need the best carpet cleaning company in Rockford, IL, you need Rockford Carpet Cleaning. They have the knowledge and experience to clean your carpets faster and cheaper than anyone else. Their trained carpet cleaning technicians use only the best in deep-cleaning carpet equipment to get rid of any stain and odor. Tell them Ryan sent you!
