Brett, the owner of the company, takes care of you throughout your experience with A1, from an initial rough estimate, scheduling, final estimates and the actual cleaning. He was great! He was punctual with the actual cleaning appointment and when returning all my texts and calls.
The day of the cleaning, before starting he measured all the rooms and was able to quickly put together 4 quotes for different treatments, including a green option. The cheapest option was very cheap. I went with the second cheapest option and I was very happy with my choice.
With regards to the actual cleaning, we had just over 1,500 sq ft of carpet to be cleaned in our newly purchased home, and there were a lot of spots. I didn’t think Brett was going to be able to take care of them all but I would say he got around 95%, the remaining spots being paint splashes. He did a great job and was very fast too, finishing under 2 hrs. I was very happy with his job and would absolutely recommend his carpet cleaning services. A great overall experience, with great results for a reasonable price!

Had a wonderful experience with Brett this morning. Brett was on time, let me know when he was on his way. We went over options with no pressure to upgrade. He was thorough but also 'kwik.' He was also able to show me what grossness had been in my carpets. I would recommend his service to anyone.

Brett was super fast, and managed to fit us into a quick last minute time slot. He was very professional and the carpet looks fantastic. 10/10 would recommend!! We are moving and this took so much stress off our plates.

This is the second time I have had Brett here to clean the carpets— he has done an excellent job! The first time he came our family was hit by the flu, he wore a mask and still got the job done!
I have also used other commercial cleaning organizations and I was really unhappy. I highly recommend A-1 Leila dry!

One of the biggest questions we get asked is: "How can I safely maintain my tile and grout?"
After answering the question many times we have written out step-by-step the do's and don'ts of tile and grout maintenance.
Step 1: Sweeping and dry vacuuming - before you consider getting your tile and grout floor wet you should use a broom and dust pan or a dry mop to remove as much dry soil as possible. Our cleaning processes rely heavily on the importance of vacuuming and just how effective it is at removing and lessening soil load on your floors. Sweeping and dry/dust mopping multiple times a week will help keep soils from embedding deep into the tile and grout pores. This ensures that you're not just turning easily removable soil into mud and smearing it around your floor. The mud may not be visible to the eye but can cause staining of your grout and actually attract more soil making your tile and grout become dirtier more quickly.
Step 2: Choose the right cleaning solution - we recommend that you use a neutral floor cleaner that is designed to clean tile and grout. There are many products available for you to choose from and many of them work well without having to reply on harsh chemicals to keep your floor clean. Using harsh products including bleach can actually damage your tile and grout as well as leave residue on the tile face and in the grout lines that will inevitably attract soil making your tile and grout dirtier more quickly. Your natural reaction is to use more product for more cleaning power and this actually compounds that problem and can cause damage. Removing this residue professionally can be time consuming and require restoration of your tile and grout which is more expensive than traditional maintenance cleanings.
Step 3: Look for damaged tile and grout - this is probably the top neglected part of tile maintenance that we see. Cracked tiles or missing grout can become a growing problem. The cracks and missing grout allow dirt to travel deep down and even underneath both the tile face and the grout. When you clean your tile the deep soil becomes wet and as the floor dries it makes it way to the surface causing your floor to look blotchy and still dirty. If you notice damage to the tile or grout you should have it repaired right away.
Step 4: Professional Cleaning - although probably obvious, professional tile and grout cleaning is a great way to maintain the great look of your tile and grout floor. The benefits to our tile cleaning service is that we use very hot water and pressure to loosen dirt and soil from deep within the tile and grout pores. The heat is great for sanitizing and removing stubborn grease and oils from the floor. Our cleaning process also removes residues leaving you nothing but a fresh clean sparkling floor.
Step 5: Protect Your Investment - For natural tile we can seal the whole tile face and the grout with an impregnating sealer. As the name suggests the product penetrates into the tile and grout and creates a layer of protection that makes liquids and dirt difficult to absorb into the tile. Natural tile is more susceptible to soiling and staining so we highly recommend having it applied. Man-made tile such as ceramic and porcelain do not require that the tile face be sealed as they come with a protective glaze to stop soil from getting through the tile face. However, grout is a cement mixture that is extremely porous and can still be damaged by liquids and dirt. We can apply our grout sealant to your grout lines to make maintenance and future cleanings a breeze.
Step 6: Skip the wax and other topical coats - We understand the want to protect your tile and grout but we urge you to do it properly. Topical coatings such as wax degrade over time and often yellow in high traffic areas. Wax and other topical coatings are at times difficult to remove and require us to strip the floor which is very time consuming. Wax is meant to be used on floors such as vinyl composite tile(VCT) for protection and shine. In our professional opinion with over 20 years of knowledge and experience, wax does not belong on tile and grout for any reason. The expensive of removal and maintenance of wax on tile and grout far outweigh and advantages of protection it may bring.
