May Cleaning Special
What “yuck” is hiding in your furniture? We all clean our bed sheets but imagine how many allergens, oils, and dust would accumulate if we did not clean them regularly. When was the last time you had your upholstery professionally cleaned? Professionally cleaning your furniture will extend its life and protect your family’s health. Referral has been cleaning upholstery and fine fabrics in Fort Wayne for 40 YEARS!

Testimonial of the Month
“First and foremost, the quality of work and service is outstanding. We feel very confident that our carpet has been restored to ‘like new’ condition. I can’t imagine trusting anyone else to clean our carpet. Other companies engage in traditional ‘bait and switch’ practices. They draw you in with the promise of a low price, but then add, add, and add to the bill. The old adage “You Get What You Pay For” is represented by those other companies. Referral may cost more but you get more. I can’t think of anything to get better service. People say all the time to give 110%, which isn’t physically possible. But when you get 100%, that’s still amazing!” – Mr. & Mrs. Stinson
Mr. and Mrs. Stinson 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 from a disappointed customer who used a franchise carpet cleaning company.
We Never Rush Our Work! It takes time to get the job done right and to thoroughly perform our services. We always care about the results of the areas we are cleaning and we prove that by the time and effort we take to do our cleaning right the first time. We even take our time to clean the edges of the rooms we clean!
We are also experts at stain removal. Anything from Kool-Aid, gum, tar, wax, grease, paint, air filtration marks, red wine, and pet urine stains can be removed. We have literally seen it all in our 40 years of experience. We have safe and effective ways of removing spots and stains and our technicians love a good challenge!
For even more reasons, read Why Trust Referral on our official website.
