How many times have you stepped over that stain in the middle of your floor? Each time you walk into your living room or bedroom, you promise that you will take the time to call a carpet cleaning company to come take care of it for you. Somehow, it still never gets done! Probably one of the last things we put on our to-do list is having our carpets cleaned. As with so many things, it gets put off and put off again. Maybe you think it will be too much of a hassle. Maybe you aren’t sure who to call or who you can trust. Now, you can put your mind at ease and call a local company, Dri-Rite Carpet & Upholstery Service, located at 209 E. 2nd Ave. in Owasso.
Owners Kathy and Tony Jones and their son Joshua Wilson have been in the carpet cleaning business for over 15 years, and have been serving Owasso and surrounding area residents for the past 9 years. “We moved here so I could be close to my parents who were ill,” explains Kathy. “They have since passed, but we loved the area so much, we decided to stay.” They even have a daughter and five grandkids who live close by so “we have set our roots here!” laughs Kathy.
Dri-Rite is a company that offers much more to their customers than simply cleaning carpets. They are experts in many different areas, including carpet repair and re-stretching. “We only do power stretching instead of the normal knee-kicking style of stretching carpet,” explains Kathy. “This is a more professional process and will keep your carpets stretched for a much longer time frame.”
They specialize in many different areas of cleaning, all designed to create a cleaner and healthier home for you and your family. Dri-Rite can clean your air ducts, and even clean your grout and tile in your bathroom and kitchen areas. This process can make even the dirtiest tile look almost brand new, and for a fraction of the cost.
“We try to take the extra time to educate our clients too,” states Kathy. “There are so many options available to them when it comes to our services; we want to make sure they understand all the options that we have to offer. One such product is called Enzyme. This product treats the base of the stain and kills the bacteria so the stain can’t bleed back to the surface.” Dri-Rite also stands behind their services with a 15-day guarantee.
Owners of specialty carpets and rugs will be excited to hear that Dri-Rite can take care of those as well. “We specialize in cleaning Haitian cotton rugs, leather, silk, satin, Oriental and Persian rugs and many more,” says Tony. “A lot of carpet cleaners have to send those rugs out to a third party to have them cleaned. We have the equipment and expertise to handle them right here, so that is a huge timesaver for our clients.”
Tony and Kathy both express their happiness with the Owasso area and the local clientele. “We have never seen a town grow as fast as Owasso has. We are just thrilled to be able to be here and service this area.”
They have several well-known accounts in the area, including Re-Max and several of the other real estate companies. Because they are able to not only clean but also repair carpets, they make a very cost-effective solution to those trying to sell a home that has some damage to the floor coverings. “We have been able to save some homeowners thousands of dollars,” Tony states. “Many times they don’t have to replace their carpets; they can just have us clean or repair them, and they look just like new.”
If you ever have the need for any of the many services Dri-Rite has to offer, why not try a local company and keep your dollars here in Owasso? For additional information or to schedule an appointment, call (918) 274-0553.
