True to its name, On Time Carpet Service’s technicians guarantee they’ll arrive on schedule. But while they may be obsessed with time, they never rush through a carpet-cleaning session, making sure they do the job thoroughly and well every time. A premium option, the Rotovac 360 carpet cleaning system’s spinning brushes lift dirt and dust mites from deep down in carpet fibers, while blowers target just-cleaned areas to minimize drying time to just 3–4 hours. The staff can also clean tile, car interiors—even RVs—and leather couches, ottomans, or mattresses.

Not only does carpet cleaning have the aesthetic benefit of eliminating eyesores from the floor, it also supports a healthier living environment, terminating dirty germs, dust mites, allergens, and carpet's incessant nagging about your driving etiquette.

In addition to treating each item in its care to a through scrubdown, Thomas Dry Cleaners recycles hangers and wraps clothes in environmentally conscious recycled material, effectively preserving the Earth's precious few natural garment-bag deposits.

To the same eco-friendly end, they patch up ducts with the EPA-endorsed Aeroseal duct-repair system. This system is less invasive than traditional duct repair, saving energy and cost without sinking to such methods as sending a glue-covered intern crawling through them.
Employees invest in customer trust as well as the Earth's welfare—at each appointment, they discuss costs up front before tinkering with the pipework. Their written guarantee promises satisfaction with their work, not just that the equipment will function and will not come to life in their absence.
