3 Ways To SAVE Until August 15

Rug - rug cleaning contrast

Your oriental rugs deserve more attention than your wall-to-wall carpeting. Why? Because of the natural fibers, rug constructions, and multiple colored dyes. Many rugs are sentimental and have a story behind them. Our unique and safe cleaning process includes pre-inspection, testing for color stability, removing dry soil with the RugBadger which delivers 40,000 harmonic vibrations per minute to your rug to loosen and remove abrasive, gritty soil from the foundation of your rug, cleaning your rug and fringes, removing spots, grooming fibers, fiber protection, speed drying and final inspection. We also have a successful procedure to remove pet urine odor.

Take Advantage of Our 3 Rug Cleaning Specials – Hurry Offer Expires August 15!

  1. Free Rug Pick-Up and Delivery ($50 value). Valid in Allen County on rug cleaning orders over $300.
  2. 50% OFF Scotchgard Protector Application on rugs you drop off at our shop.
  3. 10% OFF High-Quality Rug Pad – Custom fit to your rug. Valid with in-shop cleaning


Since 1977, Referral has cleaned thousands of rugs from around the world. Call us at 260-483-4383 to schedule your rug cleaning today! Visit our Rug Cleaning Process page on our website to learn more about how we can care for your precious rugs.

BLOG - Paint Removal After

A few weeks ago, one of our longtime customers frantically called us after she accidentally spilled paint in her bedroom. We treated this as an emergency and were able to arrive quickly and completely removed all trace of the stain. Our customer was so happy – in fact, there were many hugs given!

Testimonial of the Month

BLOG - Testimonial

“On Monday June 13th, I decided to paint window trim. I had my drop cloth down with my step stool and my can of dark brown paint. As I slid the drop cloth just a little the can of paint flew (like slow motion) over the drop cloth and landed, opening and spilling the dark brown paint on the beige master bedroom carpet. I rushed down stairs to grab something to wipe it up with and much to my great concern I realized without even a second thought, I better just call Alan at Referral, he’ll know exactly what to do. I dialed the number and low and behold who should answer but Alan himself. He said he would be to our home as soon as possible and to apply damp towels to the paint spills. Within 30-45 min he arrived and went straight to work. I could not believe he was able to remove all the paint from the carpet. Referral really is SECOND TO NONE in customer service, customer satisfaction and restoring your carpets to new. Thank you again Alan and everyone at Referral. In todays world there is such a lack of customer service, However you guys are SUPERB!!!!”
