Since 1989, Curtis-E Carpet Cleaning's licensed and certified fleet of carpet caretakers has been attacking grime with steam baths that leave homes free of pollutants and dust. Today, the cleaners gussy-up approximately 10 million square feet of carpet each year. Their trained technicians defeat dirt using top-grade equipment including a large fleet of vans installed with high-efficiency mounted extraction units. The team specializes in commercial and residential carpet cleaning, scrubbing every inch of rug-covered space including hallways, staircases, and carpet-lined bathtubs. They can also provide special treatment for sullied floor coverings such as spot removal, wax removal, seam and burn repairs, and water-damage recovery.
From major auto-body repairs to mold removal, the technicians at Ace Car Reconditioning handle nearly all automotive needs, and they do it with enough care and expertise to show off an Angie’s List Super Service award. At three locations in the Portland area, the crew spruces up exteriors with Llumar window films and revitalizes interiors with carpet shampooing and an ozone treatment that removes odors left behind by pets and hitchhiking dumpster divers. Dents and dings pop right out with paintless dent removal, and the team makes scratches disappear with Applied Colors’ paint-touchup system. Aside from superficial fixes, the Ace squad ensures cars are safe and sound with auto-body repairs such as hood and bumper replacements.
