“These guys went over and above. They were the most professional carpet cleaners—and nice too. I'm in a condo, and they got the vacuum hoses to reach inside when all other carpet cleaners I called said they wouldn't attempt it. I will use them again in a heartbeat. The carpet came clean, and it's older carpet in a rental, to boot.”
“Smart Choice Cleaning explained how they would clean my carpets and upholstery. They took extra care to pretreat heavy-traffic areas. Everything looked clean when they were finished. They provided excellent service.”
“They were great—wonderful. They cleaned rugs and also steam cleaned the bathroom floor. They're an A+.”
“Smart Choice did an excellent job. I highly recommend their services.”
“They were very professional and got the job done as promised. They were cleaning carpet in the apartment before I moved out. They did one room and a hallway. I chose them because they had both the carpet cleaning and the regular cleaning services. I think they're excellent.”
“Smart Choice Cleaning cleaned our rugs for us. They were very helpful in giving us ideas for little spots and things, and they told us what to do if we spilled something later. We had just moved into our house, and we wanted the carpets cleaned before we moved in. We had used them before at our other house for their house cleaning services. I had a good experience with them then as well. I would give them an A.”
“They were thorough. We had the rug in one room steam cleaned. Their customer service was fine. They came in and did their work. I would say they're an A. I had no complaints about what they did.”
“It was pretty good—Smart Choice Cleaning was thorough and clean. I had the carpet steam cleaned in the basement. It was a big bedroom, a small bedroom, and then the stairs. They were pretty nice. They answered all the questions, and they came on time. I heard good stuff about them, and one of my other friends had used them before. I would say they're an A-grade company.”
“It was fine. The person who did the carpet was very friendly. They cleaned two rooms for me. They're an A-rated company.”
“They cleaned the carpets. They did a good job and showed up on time, and everything was fine. I really didn't deal with the customer service because I didn't have a problem. They were in and out with no real interaction. The work was just in my basement—it was two rooms and a hallway. They get an A. They did fine.”
“They're prompt and professional, and they did a satisfactory job. They were doing carpet cleaning all throughout the house. I interacted with the workers, and their customer service was very good. I'd rate them as an A.”
“It was great. Smart Choice Cleaning did a really good job. They weren't able to perform one of the services, so they didn't end up charging me for it, which was good. They cleaned my carpets, and they were going to do my hardwood floors, but the machine broke. I believe they were cleaning two carpeted rooms, and I believe they did two sets of stairs as well. I think I would give them an A.”
“I didn't dislike anything. They were pleasant and professional. They did area rugs, I think. I chose them because another company no longer does area rugs. It was a pleasant experience. I guess I would say they're an A-grade company.”
“I was satisfied with the job they did. I didn't have any problems with the folks that actually performed the service. They showed up on time and did the job pretty quickly. They were cleaning my carpets all throughout the house. Smart Choice Cleaning gets an A.”

“They did the job they said they would do, they came on time, and they paid attention to my concerns. They cleaned the carpeting in about five rooms. They did it very efficiently, and they were very careful with our furniture and our stuff. An A rating sounds perfect for their service.”

“I've used Smart Choice about five times, but I've actually never meet the technicians because I'm never home when they are cleaning. I would grade them as an A+.”

“Smart Choice Cleaning cleaned my rugs with a water-based cleaning process. They were really good—A+.”
“It was a move-out cleaning for a rental. I guess the service was good. They showed up when they said they would and did what they said they were going to do. When it's wet, it's kind of dark, so we couldn't see what it was going to look like when it was dry. It wasn't an inconvenience or anything because they did it right before our turnover. They deserve an A+.”

“They cleaned the carpet. They were on time and very professional. They got the job done; they didn't mess around or anything. For a while, the carpet was kind of sticky and wet, so I left the house for a couple of hours for it to dry completely. Everything was OK. The only thing I didn't like about it was that the carpet felt kind of stiff after it dried. I got my vacuum cleaner out and went through the house with it, and it kind of softened up a little. They get an A+.”
“Smart Choice was wonderful. They were knowledgeable and did a really good job of cleaning the carpet. They were respectful of the house. I was very happy with the outcome.”

I would use Smart Choice again, and I would recommend them. They did a good job in our apartment, and it was good, quality service. I would rate them an A.”

They cleaned my stairs, and they cleaned a sofa, which my cat decided was going to be her litter box because she was mad that I was dog sitting for my daughter. Then the technician cleaned the other sofa and made it look like it was only five years old as opposed to fifteen, so it was good. It was overall a really good experience. I would give them an A+.”

Everything went very well. They were prompt, they did a great job, they got things cleaned that we didn't think would get cleaned, and they did it all in one day.

John, the owner, was personally here overseeing it and everything, so it was very good. I would give them an A.

They were great. Absolutely perfect. They did a good job and were friendly. I'd give them an A.

They're very good. If I need service again, I'll call them. They deserve an A.

They did a great job. We were very happy with it. It was a while ago, but everything went OK. From what I recall, it was really convenient. I think we contacted them on short notice.
