A Chat with Harker and Son Carpet Care, LLC
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We offer an environmentally friendly carpet-cleaning service that uses dry extraction to deep clean your carpet. It removes dry, loose dirt, hair, and allergens, [offers] intense scrubbing on tough, oily, and colorful stains, and leaves your carpets thoroughly cleaned and dry by the time we are finished.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Having several combined years in flooring-installation and carpet-care experience, I have seen time after time what lays on top, in between, and underneath residential and commercial carpets. Based on my experience, this is the one of the safest methods for cleaning while still being effective.
What do you love most about your job?
I have three cats, two dogs, an infant, and a house full of carpet. This gives me a testing ground to see how the cleaning process stacks up against common messes. I love using a product I know is safe for my pets and children and that still does a great job, and nothing beats having dry carpet when you’re done!
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
That the carpets look and smell great; they’re amazed they can put their furniture back immediately. They couldn’t believe the amount of pet hair I showed them in the filters from a small section of their living room. [The hair was] from a dog they only sometimes watch!
