They understood exactly what needed to be done, and they gave advice and different options as we went along. They're an A+ company.”

“I've used them in a couple different houses over the last 15 years, and they're just very good. I like their process—it's non-toxic, so you don't have any bad chemical smells in your house when they're done cleaning your carpets. They're reliable, and you can get an appointment relatively quickly. I'm pretty sure I found them in the Best Pick Reports. I'd give them an A.”
“I did carpet cleaning, and it was very positive. I mentioned to the man who did the estimate that I wanted the stairs to be vacuumed because the last couple people didn't vacuum them before they cleaned them, and he went and got a little hand vacuum because they didn't have one on the truck. They deserve an A.”

“I've used them for several years now. They did carpet cleaning in several rooms. They do a good job, and they are very prompt and arrive when they're supposed to arrive. They do the job with minimal worry to me—they move my things back for me and so on. They communicate well, too, and they stay in touch.

“I like the way in which the office personnel set up the appointment and follow through. The person who came out to clean the carpet came out promptly, did what they needed to do, and got out. They did a great job. We had used them one other time, and obviously that was a positive experience or else we wouldn't have used them again. I first heard about Hughes through a friend of mine. They rate an A+.”
“A neighbor of mine had recommended Hughes Dry Professional Carpet Cleaning; I had never heard of them. I got ahold of them, and a fellow came—I think the owner—and gave us an estimate. We had some tears in our Berber carpet that needed to be repaired. We also wanted the Berber carpet cleaned on the stairs and the entire upstairs. The technician came, worked quickly, and cleaned up. We're very happy with the results. I feel like they deserve an A+.”
“I think Hughes Dry Professional Carpet Cleaning would get an A+.”
“Firstly, your carpet is not wet when they leave. Secondly, I thought the guys were really nice; they worked really hard to make sure I was happy. I think we've used them twice. I don't know if my husband got an email, but somehow, he said, 'Here. Try these guys,' so I called them. I think one time, I had called them in an emergency because we had a sick dog accident. The gentleman that owns the company is very, very nice. That's my experience. They've earned an A+.”
“The carpet cleaners are great. I've used Hughes Dry for years—right out of the Home Reports book. I have referred them, and three other people have used them; they're great. They come out once a year. I have different areas of the home to have done, so I'd rather have them come out twice a year. I mean, they're great—really professional. They come in, do their job, and roll out. I grade them an A. On a positive note, I use the carpet people every year.”
“I like that the carpet turned out really nicely, and the technician was very good, thorough, and polite. He was a really hard worker. This is the first time I used Hughes Dry Professional Carpet Cleaning. Someone referred us to Hughes because the original person was going to be out of town. They were great. They deserve an A.”
“Hughes Dry Professional Carpet Cleaning is actually coming again. I like the dry cleaning, instead of the water or steam. It's dry, and they're absolutely wonderful. That's the first time I used them, but they're coming again next week. I was looking for somebody that would clean carpets without using steam and water; they were the only ones I could find. They're going out of their way to send an extra person to help move the mattresses off the beds because I wanted the bedrooms cleaned, but the one fellow could not move the mattresses. They're sending two people next week, so they are absolutely wonderful. I can't say enough good about them. I'll give them an A+.”
“I was very happy with the work they did for me. I'm just not ready to have my carpet cleaned again right now, though; everything is fine. Mr. Hughes came out and spot-cleaned a couple of places—Mr. Hughes came out himself to do it personally. I've only used them the one time, but I would tell another homeowner they're definitely good people. I'll give them an A.”
“Hughes Dry had nice people; they were responsive and stayed until it was finished. I've used them maybe three or four times, and I'm actually getting ready to call them again. I chose them because they were referred by a neighbor. The people involved are very, very nice and responsive. I would definitely recommend them to another homeowner. I'll give them an A because I keep calling them back.”
“What I like about Hughes Dry Professional Carpet Cleaning is that they got the stain out that was bothering us. We've used them before; our relationship dates back probably about five years. Home Reports is how we first got acquainted with Hughes. They were fine in the customer service aspect—friendly and professional. They get an A.”
“The end result was really good, and their customer service is good. This was the first and only time I've used them. I would recommend them. They deserve an A.”
“They did a good job. The carpets came out great. The technician was really nice and explained everything he was doing. I think he did a couple of extra spots for me; he was nice. They were really friendly. I've used them at least once or twice—it may have been two times. I've never had any issues I've had to take up with them. I would give them an A.”
“They've cleaned one rug; they came to the house to clean the rug. They were just very professional. There were instructions on the back of the rug that said it had to be dry-cleaned and to call a certain number to get a local referral. I called that number, and they referred me to Hughes. Every aspect of it was by the book and to my standards; they earned an A.”
“They're very professional. They were very much accountable in terms of what they said they would do and how they did it. Everything that they said they would do has worked out, which is nice. I haven't used them on more than occasion; this was the first time. I heard about them from the Home Reports. If another homeowner, a friend, or a neighbor asked me about these guys, I would recommend them. I'd give them an A.”
“They do what they say. They're very nice people. They do a good job, and they always follow up on the work. My wife likes the technique that they use. If I remember, we heard about them from a neighbor. We've used them more than once. Most of my feedback is from my wife, but it sounds like they're doing it right. I would rate them an A.”
“They came when they said, and my carpet wasn't soaking wet. The serviceman made some recommendations about some seams. He was telling me that their company does that, which is something that I didn't know. I thought I had to live with my carpet like this, but he made some suggestions. I heard about them from a coworker of mine. She has animals, and she's always getting her carpet cleaned; I know she has allergies, so I had to ask her who she uses. They earned an A. I was happy and have no complaints.”
“I like their friendliness, courtesy, and determination. The customer service is very good. I have not used them more than once. I found them through a referral. I'd recommend Hughes Dry Professional Carpet Cleaning to another homeowner. They deserve an A.”
“They did a good job. They were very professional and quick, and they went the extra mile; they did a little section of my carpet that I hadn't asked them to do; they went ahead and did it. They just did a really good job. This was the first and only time I've used them. I think I saw them in the Home Reports. I liked the fact that they didn't use water. They get an A.”

Hughes Dry was very professional; they did a really great job and got the carpets really, really clean. I like that they use a dry, organic formula that doesn't leave the carpet wet. That's very important to me. The carpets looked awesome after they left. They're an A+.

The way Hughes cleans the carpets is good. My carpets are never wet, and they get it clean. We get the same person every time, and he's phenomenal. I've used them for several years now. They've never let me down. My husband is very picky too, and he's very pleased. I'd give them an A+, for sure.

I’ve used Hughes Dry Professional, and they are great. When we moved in, our basement had all these crazy mystery stains down there, and I was like, ‘I’m sure we’re going to have to replace this carpet, but let’s just try cleaning it and see what happens.’ It cleaned up like new. Everything came out.

We used Hughes. Their method is some kind of dry treatment that they put down and vacuum up so there’s no waiting for the carpets to dry. They were awesome. I would use them again and recommend them.

Hughes—we loved them. They cleaned our carpets. We really enjoy the tech. We had the same one three times. They've been upstairs twice and then downstairs where the dogs were. I think they deserve an A grade, and we've already recommended them to family and friends.

I called them in to stretch my carpet, and they did a terrific job. I would use them again in a heartbeat. They deserve an A+.

I go in Home Reports to look, and I found Hughes Dry Professional Carpet Cleaning. They're great. They stretched the carpet for us. It was hard to find someone; not all of the carpet people in these home magazines do that. They clean or install, but they don't stretch. I was very happy to get someone to stretch my carpet. It's held up great so far. I'll use them again at some point. They get an A.

I had some carpet cleaning, and we used Hughes Dry Professional out of Home Reports. They were fine. They'd get an A grade.
