Testimonial Of The Month
“The staff is very friendly and helpful. Alan explained everything to me. Angela, the scheduler, was kind and kept me informed. The cost is more than other places, but so worth it!! My carpet looked at least three shades lighter and all of the stains were removed. My very dirty white vinyl floors now look brand new! I was also very pleased with how they protected the corners and cleaned by the baseboards. Amazing service. I was so comfortable having them in my home, I even left. They locked up my home and left it looking great! They called and let me know they were done and told me how to reach them if I had any questions. Finally, a company that strives to provide excellent customer service. They exceeded my expectations! I will use them again. Great company to work with!!” – Mrs. Rife
Mr. and Mrs. Rife had their 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 online review of a franchise carpet cleaning company
How does the Referral team ensure that this doesn’t happen to our customers??
Over the past 40 years, Referral has been dedicated to paying attention to the details. This customer complained of a “gray border” remaining in the rooms that were cleaned. Referral uses a special treatment pre-spray and then a small three-inch hand tool to clean the dirty, dark edges of the rooms that we clean. The “gray border” are air filtration lines that are caught between your carpet and your walls. We use the same three-inch hand tool to clean around small objects, such as the wrought iron railing mentioned above. And we have several specialty spotting solutions to remove a variety of spots and stains – including cat vomit.
Referral doesn’t just zoom over your carpet and leave. We take the time to inspect all areas before beginning to clean and we take the time to clean in the “nooks” and “crannies” of each room. When you call Referral, you will get what you pay for!
Before & After Pic Of The Month
Recently we cleaned at one of our favorite downtown restaurants – Wine Down! They experienced frustration when trying to keep their lightly colored carpet clean themselves. The professionals at Referral made the carpet look brand new again. The next time you’re at Wine Down, look down and check out our handiwork!
What’s Up At Referral?
Kory Celebrates One Year
Kory celebrated his one year anniversary at Referral in June. We are so thankful to have Kory as part of our team. He is an excellent technician, an extremely hard worker, and he always keeps us laughing. Kory previously earned a full-tuition scholarship and will be enrolling at IPFW in August while continuing to work at Referral part-time. Happy anniversary, Kory!
Welcome, Ben & Jacob
We are so excited to have Ben and Jacob joining the Referral team this summer! You are going to be very impressed when they clean for you. For the next few months, they will be training with Alan, as he teaches them the extensive knowledge he has gained in his 30 years in the cleaning and restoration industry. Please give Ben and Jacob a warm welcome when they clean for you!
We also want to welcome Alexis to the Referral team! She will be maintaining our equipment at the office. This involves keeping our vans stocked and squeaky clean, keeping all of the carpet and floor cleaning equipment that we use each day in good working order and ensuring that our shop garage is organized. We are so happy to have Alexis as part of the Referral team!
Alan & Audrey Bring Home Wrigley
Alan and Audrey brought home a new puppy recently! They chose a Yorkshire Terrier from a breeder in Warsaw, IN (Visit the breeder’s website here). Audrey has been big Chicago Cubs fan her entire life, so they chose to name him Wrigley. They are so excited for their new little fur baby to join their family!
Life Hack Of The Month
Fort Wayne has kicked off the largest construction and public investment project in the City’s history. The Three Rivers Protection and Overflow Reduction Tunnel (3RPORT) will extend for five miles underneath the city at a depth of 200-feet below the earth’s surface. This should reduce the amount of neighborhood street flooding and basement back-ups. Read more about the project here. In the meantime, check out Referral’s Water Damage Prevention Tips to make sure you and your family are protected against flooding!
