Everyone is used to having preventative maintenance done on their car. We schedule preventative care appointments with our dentist. We even perform preventative maintenance on our homes, but on our carpets?
According to Kathy Jones, owner of Dri-Rite Carpet & Upholstery Service in Owasso, scheduling maintenance cleanings once a year just makes sense. “I encourage all my customers to make sure they have their carpets cared for at least once a year, but especially after the winter months,” explains Kathy. “Cold weather months are so hard on our carpets. Our homes are closed up for months and the dirt, dust and grime that is tracked in or in the air after we dust has nowhere to go, so it falls downward into your carpet fibers.”
Located in Owasso for 16 years and family owned and operated, Dri-Rite is proud to say that they have been able to outlast a lot of other companies by providing excellent customer care and a personal touch. “A family member will always be there for every job we do,” Kathy says proudly. “We want to be sure each customer gets the results they desire.”
Dri-Rite’s owners, Kathy and Anthony Jones, are both licensed carpet care technicians. They are certified by IICRC (Institute of Inspections, Cleanings, and Restorations) and have undergone extensive classroom and on-the-job training by the best in the industry.
This experience shows when you begin asking questions regarding their cleaning process. They explain how the dry foam process they utilize picks up 91.3 percent of dirt compared to steam cleaning, which only gets 15.6 percent. That is amazing, and when asked how long your carpet should stay clean afterward, the difference is staggering. “Dry foam cleaned carpets will stay clean on average 12 to 16 months before you will need to call us out again; steam cleaned carpets are in need of attention in only two to three months.”
Dri-Rite is prepared to tackle just about any job including commercial as well as residential. But carpets are just one area of specialty. They can also clean your tile and grout, purify your air ducts, and repair and install carpet. And, for those of you with indoor pets, they are the perfect go-to people for stains and pet odors.
Kathy remembers a time when locals had to send their Oriental and Persian rugs out of state to get them properly cleaned. But Dri-Rite is fully equipped and experienced to handle all exotic rugs including those that are naturally dyed. If that isn’t enough, they are the company to call if you ever experience damage to your home due to flood or fire.
An important key to their businesses success comes from the enzyme that is used during their cleaning process. The enzyme kills bacteria in your carpet and literally pulls it through the backing to the top of the rug. If you have pets or small children in your household, breathe easy knowing that every product Dri-Rite utilizes is safe. The cost of this service varies depending on the extent of contamination. They will provide you with an in-home quote.
Customers are often pleasantly surprised when they learn that their carpets will be dry in only two to three hours, and Dri-Rite staff will happily move furniture, pre-vacuum and clean baseboards, if needed. Your home will receive the white glove treatment from the experts at Dri-Rite. Why not trust the team that has been caring for carpets in homes all across northeastern Oklahoma for 16 years? Call Kathy, Anthony and the rest of the Jones family and your carpet will thank you!
