Greetings From Your Friends at Referral Cleaning & Restoration!

Is your spring cleaning in full swing? Referral would love to help you get a jump start! Give us a call if it has been awhile! Read on to get the latest news from Team Referral…
What’s Up At Referral
Referral Is Hiring
We are still hiring at Referral! We are hiring for a full-time cleaning technician and for a part-time office assistant. We are very particular about who we bring onto the team here, so we have been taking our time, trying to find the best candidate. We want the Very Best People who can provide the best service to our awesome customers. If you have been thinking about applying or know someone who may be interested, now is your chance! Visit www.ReferralCareers.com today to see how to apply for either position.
Administrative Professionals Day
On Wednesday April 27, we celebrated our amazing office manager, Angela. She has been with us for three years now and we are so grateful to have her! Angela is more than likely who you will speak to when you call Referral. Behind the scenes, she is an unsung hero here. In her free time, Angela loves hanging out with her fiancee Dan and their dog, Elvis. They both love music and love to karaoke on the weekends around Fort Wayne. The next time you call Referral, let Angela know what a great job she’s doing!

Each customer who has used our services in the past and leaves us an online review between May 2 – 31, 2016 will be entered to win a $25 gift card to Hall’s Restaurants!

Heavy Rain = Flooded Basements
Now that spring is in full swing and summer will soon follow, we expect to see more weather events, specifically, RAIN. If you have ever been the victim of a flooded basement or just a small water damage, you know how chaotic and emotional the experience can be. We don’t wish this event on any of our customers! Read our water damage prevention tips to make sure it doesn’t happen to you.
However, if water damage does occur, rest assured that Referral can get your life back to normal very quickly. Even if you call us at 260-483-4383 in the middle of the night, you will be forwarded to Alan’s cell phone (our general manager) and he will take care of you!
Watch the video below to see what makes Referral different than other local or franchise restoration companies.
Don’t Sweep It Under The Rug!
Referral has been busy with lots of rug cleanings lately! With the trend of hard surface flooring gaining momentum, we know that most people are getting into rugs as well. We love that many of our customers have rugs that have been in their family for decades and they always have an interesting story to go along with their precious rug! Read more about Referral’s various rug cleaning processes.
For rug care tips, check out our Rug Care Tips page. In order to get extended life out of your valuable rugs, they require precious time and attention. When your rugs require more than the average vacuuming, call Referral to take special care of your rugs!
Before and After Photo of The Month
This property had some careless previous tenants! The homeowner put the home up for sale and figured they would need to replace the carpet. However, the carpet just needed the Referral touch. We were able to tackle the job and make it look almost brand new again!
Time and again, we hear people say that they are just going to “rip all the carpet out” of their home because it looks dirty or worn. And time and again, we get to surprise our customers by just giving their floors a thorough, detailed cleaning and thereby saving them HUNDREDS of dollars in new flooring costs.
Testimonial of The Month
“Referral is by far the best floor cleaning company we have ever used! They listen and remember what you want done. The technicians were professional and didn’t run into walls and furniture and did not bang doors shut. We trust their products. We have no complaints! We loved their work ethic.” – Mr. and Mrs. DeCamp
To be entered to win a $25 gift card to Hall’s Restaurants, leave Referral an online review at any of our online sites below between May 2-31, 2016. The winner will be announced Thursday June 2, 2016!

It’s that time of year, finally! We are huge fans of gardening at Referral. Each year, we can’t wait to get our plants in the ground and watch them grow! Audrey (our marketing rep and e-newsletter writer) loves making gallons and gallons of salsa each summer. Check out the two articles below whether you are a beginner or an advanced gardener!
