opportunity to clean carpet head-to-head against Stanley Steemer. The
customer (Nadia M. of Aurora) saw the difference in service, quality and
professionalism and selected RugMedic.com at double the price. We
offered to place duct tape down the middle of the room and see who got
the carpet the cleanest... Stanley Steemer literally drove away. As soon

would be impossible to win.
|8.25.09 HANDS DOWN: Time and time again, we get customer and
fellow carpet cleaners wanting to view our Vortex carpet cleaning
machine when it's operating. The Big Red Truck definitely draws a
crowd when we're at a customer home, possibly from it's sheer brute
power, size and attention getting stance. We've had ZERO customer call
backs since we've started utilizing the Vortex and drying times are about
an hour or less. The carpets are all fresh water rinsed with 290 degree
water, leaving ZERO sticky residue & maximum cleaning power which
means ZERO call backs
