Kiwi Carpet Cleaning / totally disappointed

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

The driver showed up late with the excuse of "I ran out of gas and had to push my truck to the gas station." Brought in a pump up sprayer a grey dingy looking bonnet and a buffer. Made the statement that he would start in the master (the rear most room) sprayed the entire room with his sprayer (he had not vacuumed nor brought a vac. in the house) he said "I can't get these spots out." We replied then why are you here?" He said "I'll try one spot" He proceeded to smear one spot and proclaimed "see it won't come out" at that time I went to the kitchen and picked up a bottle of woolite carpet spray sprayed a similar spot and wiped it with a sponge it lifted spot. He still claimed he could do nothing with the carpet. At that time we asked him to discontinue service he replied "I'll call my foreman" At that time I called Kiwi to express my wish that this gentleman leave my house. The operator tells me that the driver is telling a completely different story (ya think?) The unprofessional service is one thing but if he is going to bold face lie about the series of events then I really did not want him in my house. My wife and I had moved furniture and electronics to accommodate this service where is our motivation to not to tell the events as they happened. I wanted the carpets cleaned that is why I called a service to do it. I ended up going to Lowes renting a carpet dr. and doing it myself. I have before and after pics to show results (all spots removed). Offering another crew (one man?) on another day was totally unacceptable what were supposed to do move furniture back and move again for service?

    I have been cleaning carpet professionally for almost 30 years, and I wouldn't clean my carpets any other way then steam cleaning
    Steam cleaning is also recommended by all major carpet makers with Kiwis cleaning method they never extract anything except with there initial vacuum, which you could do yourself! imagine your dog peeing on your carpet and all you do is vacuum it then buff some shampoo into and leave it there! would you like to lay on the carpet when there done! I honestly wouldn't clean my carpets this way for free! Im not presently affiliated with any type of carpet cleaning company at this time so Im not trying to sell steam over dry cleaning for any other reason that I don't want people ripped off! don't use the kiwi method
