Uli was great. He came on time and did the job fast. We cleaned 3 rugs and an ottoman. He was the cheapest quote by far that I got when I was shopping around to get this done. I read his reviews online and I was not disappointed. Very happy with the results.

I had the carpets cleaned at my office after a number of years wear and they came out looking great. They were fast to respond to my request and quick in getting the job done.

Uli was very thorough in his work. He took the initiative to clean a few upholstered chairs that also had stains on them, something we didn't even expect! I would definitely recommend his to other businesses in the area.

We had the carpets in our office cleaned before fully moving into the space. Uli was through and did a great job! Being able to clean the carpets instead of replacing them saved us about 6k, so we were extremely happy. Highly recommend!

Great experience with Uli and Lightning Clean Carpet. I was kinda worried as we had several spots from cat vomit on the carpet, which we’d unsuccessfully treated many times. I was new to the encapsulation technique, but Uli explained how it worked... and I’d be hard-pressed to go back to wet methods. We had our floor back within an hour with no signs of moisture. We were able to move furniture and get back to normal within an hour and a half... compared to 24 hours that we were thinking we’d have to wait with a wet wash. Uli is a total pro - polite, accommodating, and not disruptive. A very pleasant experience and we’ll definitely be back. Also appreciated the precautions he took for Covid-19 safety, keeping distance and keeping the process contactless.

Uli did a wonderful job! Trust is something that I’m always looking out for when hiring technicians to come to my home and I will confidently say Uli is trustworthy. Not only that but he did an outstanding job on our carpet! To quote my wife, “Our carpet looks 1,000,000% better!” Uli is now my go-to guy and I will refer him to everyone else.

At Lightning Clean Carpet, we know you want a clean work or living space. In order to do that, you need occasional help cleaning your home, business, or church. The problem is, sometimes you just can’t get the job done on your own, which can make you feel embarrassed and dirty.
We believe you deserve a clean home or office. At Lightning Clean Carpet, we are committed to your satisfaction. Our ultimate goal is to earn your respect and then ongoing business. When accidents happen, you won’t need to feel anxious or overwhelmed because you know you have a cleaning expert just waiting to be called.

Here’s how we provide what we call a “transformational cleaning experience” for you. So what was once dirty is made clean once again:
Step 1 – Schedule A Cleaning.
Step 2 – We’ll deep clean your carpet, upholstery, or tile and grout.
Step 3 – Check it off your list, relax, and enjoy your clean space!

So, Schedule A Cleaning. And in the meantime, download this FREE coupon to SAVE $25 on your next cleaning. So you can stop feeling embarrassed and instead enjoy your fresh, clean space.


A spill improperly treated can actually seal in the dirt and grime making it a permanent stain.

If neglected, your carpet or flooring will become permanently damaged.

You should probably Schedule A Cleaning...or, I guess you could just try not to look at it and avoid that part of the room?
