April Cleaning Special
Referral’s Spot Out makes short work of unsightly spots. This water based problem solver takes out most oil and water based stains when used on wet cleanable carpet, upholstery, and clothing stains. It’s safe on all carpets so you don’t have to worry about permanently bleaching and ruining your carpet. Spot Out leaves everything fresh and free of sticky, soil-attracting residues without any rinsing.

Testimonial of the Month
“We had a rug cleaned and were so pleased with the results, so we had a second rug cleaned. Then we had two chairs cleaned that no one else would even attempt. We never dreamed they would come back looking like new. Before moving to Fort Wayne, I called many upholstery cleaners in Arkansas, and they would not even attempt to clean our two chairs. Referral spent a lot of time on the chairs and brought them back to looking brand new. I cannot think of anything you could do to improve your service! Everyone from the telephone representative to the technicians were friendly, helpful, and provided great service and excellent results.” – Mrs. Peiserich
Mrs. Peiserich had her choice of a $25 Cleaning Credit or a $25 Hall’s Restaurant Gift Card for writing The Best Testimonial Of The Month!

What Makes Referral Different Than The Competition?
Below is an actual review from a real carpet cleaning company.
Referral’s cleaning technique does not leave your carpet feeling sticky. We will leave your carpet feeling soft and fresh. The IICRC sets standards and certifications for the cleaning industry. Carpet manufacturers require that consumers choose an IICRC-certified firm to clean their carpet and flooring. Referral is an IICRC-certified firm and so are our technicians. Alan, our general manager and trainer, has over 15 IICRC certifications, including the highest level of certification. Alan passes on the knowledge he has acquired over his lifetime in the cleaning and restoration industry to each and every technician while personally training them.
Carpet manufacturers recommend the hot water extraction from a truck mounted unit (some refer to this as “steam cleaning”) cleaning method. This provides the best possible cleaning for your carpet and flooring investment. Using any other method can, in fact, void your carpet warranty. This is the method that Referral has used since 1977 to keep your carpet and flooring clean and fresh!

Before & After Pic of the Month
WOW! Referral saved this couch! An unsightly stain on a white couch could be a tough situation for some cleaners. However, with Referral’s years of experience, numerous certifications and training courses, this was no problem for our technicians!

What’s Up At Referral?
Please welcome our Office Assistant, Jennifer! Jennifer brings a lot of experience and positivity to the Referral team. In fact, in the past, she spent years teaching children at a school in Africa. We only had to spend a few minutes with Jennifer to notice that she radiates kindness and understanding. While she grew up in Fort Wayne and has lived various places around the world, Jennifer is now happily settled with her family in Fort Wayne again. We are so happy Jennifer found us and we know you are going to be impressed when you speak to her on the phone.
Angela Visits Graceland
Our office manager, Angela, took a well-deserved weeklong vacation in March! She and her fiancee, Dan, are big Elvis fans, so they were very excited to visit Graceland, Memphis, and Arkansas. They enjoyed some Memphis BBQ at B.B. King’s restaurant on Beale Street and had some fun at Sammy Hagar’s bar and grill. Plus, it was 75 and sunny all week. We are so happy Angela enjoyed herself and we are glad to have her smiling face back in the Referral office!
