We have used Van's Carpet Cleaning service for both wall-to-wall carpet and area rugs. Both time they have given great results accompanied by great personal service. They treat your carpet as if it was their own.

You can't go wrong with Van's Carpet Cleaning.

Default Van's Carpet Cleaning

We called Van's on the recommendation of a local area rug store and are glad we did. Ivy is a dream to work with and Ernie is a true pleasure to have in your home. The work was done professionally and quickly. Even though there was one little mix-up when returning the wrong area rug taken out to clean, Ernie and Ivy went out of their way to bring back our rug and make us happy. A definite return customer here!

Default Highly recommend

We are in possession of a Chinese needlepoint done on silk that was given to my husband's parents in l938 by husband's father's brother, Uncle Richard, who was a missionary priest with the Passionist Fathers. He served in China from 1935 until he became a prisoner when China fell to communism and was imprisoned for seven years before his release. Over the years, this needlepoint (16" w x 48" long and framed) suffered what appeared to be rather severe water damage running about 15 inches from the top down. This piece had been made especially for Uncle Richard and was something that my husband has loved since he was a small boy. We contacted Vans Carpet Cleaning and they made an appointment to stop just to look at it. With no promise...Ernie took it with him and promised there would be no charge if it could not be cleaned. WELL....Ernie just brought it back to us and it looks WONDERFUL!!! I cried...my husband was speechless!! Ernie tried very hard as he knew the story. I asked him how long it took and he told us three house with Q-tips!!! The cost $149.99 plus $50.00 to preserve it to prevent any future damage. We would have paid so much more!! And we smile every day as we look at it proudly hanging!! THANK YOU VANS CARPET CLEANING!!! Marilyn and John White

Default Vann's Carpet

I recently hired Vans Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Service to clean my living room furniture and some oriental rugs and was thrilled with their service. I was very impressed with their responsiveness and attention to every detail as well as the excellent quality of their work. Customer service is not just a marketing slogan at Vans. They really deliver and I highly recommend them.

Default Vans Carpet Cleaning

I recently had my tile floors stem cleaned and the grout revealed. They did an amazing job. My tile sparkles. They also cleaned the bedroom carpets and were able to get the pet stains out.

They are highly professional and very customer oriented. Ivy was a pleasure to deal with on the phone" I have already recommended them to some friends.

Do You Have Wrinkles?

Occasionally, we get calls from clients who have wrinkles or ripples in their carpet. Sometimes it is in a fairly new carpet that has had little traffic. Other times it is an older carpet that developed ripples over time. So what causes these unsightly conditions, and can they be fixed? WRINKLES are usually seen in new carpet immediately after installation and are localized to one end of the carpet. Carpet wrinkles are areas where the carpet has been folded or crushed during storage. It is best if this condition is identified before the carpet is installed. If possible the wrinkled portion of the carpet roll should not be used.

The carpet retailer or installer may tell you to wait and the wrinkles will relax over time. However, this is not always the case. Wrinkles not only affect the surface yarns, they go all the way through the carpet backings and may be permanent. Steaming and grooming the carpet can improve this condition, but results will vary based on the type of carpet yarn, backing, and the severity of the wrinkles. RIPPLES are small waves that usually appear from few months to a year or more after the carpet is installed. The most common reason that carpet develops ripples is installer error. Often an installer will save time by using a kneekicker rather than a power-stretcher. This results in inadequate stretch and the potential for ripples to develop as the carpet relaxes.

Another reason for ripples is carpet that was not properly acclimated to the structure prior to installation, especially if the carpet was installed in cooler weather. A carpet needs to acclimate to normal room temperature and humidity for at least 48 hours before installation. It is difficult to stretch cold carpet, so as the carpet warms and absorbs atmospheric moisture, it will relax.

Occasionally, carpet will develop ripples immediately after cleaning. The cause is moisture absorption into the adhesive layer between the primary and secondary backings of the carpet. Even though the ripples appear after cleaning, the root cause is improper stretch of the carpet during installation. Once the carpet dries completely and acclimates to the normal temperature and humidity of the home, the carpet will lie flat. This can take up to 48 hours. In rare cases, the ripples may persist.

The only way to fix rippled carpet is to stretch the carpet again. Re-stretching requires training and patience. Often it is more difficult to re-stretch a carpet than it is to stretch it right the first time. If ripples are ignored for too long, the carpet will develop buckles.

BUCKLES are large ripples that form peaks and or wrinkles through the face yarns and carpet backing. Even if the carpet is re-stretched, the damage from buckles may still be apparent. Steaming the carpet and grooming the pile yarns may help to minimize the appearance of the damage. Not all wrinkles are quite this cute!
Have a Safe & Blessed 4th of July!

Default Van's Carpet Cleaning

Have to share what a great experience I had working with Van's Carpet Cleaning. I had 11 oriental area rugs cleaned including the micro seal treatment completed and was very satisfied in all areas of customer service. I would definitely recommend this company!!! Joyce Beeman

Van's was on time, 8:00am and did a perfect job on cleaning our carpets. Ernie explained everything he was going to do and did a better job than anyone we have hired since living in the Villages 10 years. A great company to hire.

Default Vans Carpet and Upholstery Outstanding

Recently had this company come in to remove some type of coating the original contractor had put on our tile. It was coming off leaving a terrible look on the floor. Vans came in, diagnosed the problem, determined the correct solution to remove the coating and did a thoroughly professional job.
Would highly recommend them. Service was excellent, price reasonable and staff was very courteous, timely and friendly.
