Buyer Beware! I worked with David Perea. I was connected with him through a referral, which I later learned my friend had worked with his son, not him. His son, since quit working with David and went back to commercial real estate. The overall workmanship probably warranted a 2/5. However, David's professionalism and disregard for customer service warranted a 1/5. ISSUES: - Broker sprinkler system in multiple spots and never repaired. Never covered my cost to have it repaired. Initially told me it wasn't his guys. The sprinklers were running fine before. - Used profanity at me when I asked him to reimburse me for the sprinkler repairs. Told me we were "even" since he added a gutter pop-up under the sidewalk, which I reminded him about multiple times from the first bid. - Two sink holes in the dirt around one of the window wells. After 3 weeks of calls, my wife and I filled them. - Trim around windows was never caulked where it meets the wall. - On multiple occasions tried to add things to invoice that should have been included or said he would cover. - Tried to collect 2/3 of the cost up-front. Did the job, but left multiple details unfinished. - Our engineer Specified steel lentils for support, which David bid. I caught his guys trying to get away without doing the steel lentils and leaving only the existing wood lentil. One was carrying 2 floor joists and since they widened the window opening, wasn't even supported any longer. If I hadn't caught this, they would have left a dangerous structural condition on one of the two windows. Totally unacceptable!! Stay away. I think they try to do decent work, but will cut corners if they can. Even worse is David's lack of professionalism. If you hire him, make sure every single last detail is in the contract, force them to pull permits and finally, don't expect David to be very professional. He is very good at saying the right things to get the job, but he is not good at delivering on his statements and honoring his word.
I had broken the inside pane of a double pane window, other places had quoted me through the roof! After calling around Angelo took care of me, very experienced and family owned. The two guys that came out were very nice and did a great job installing. Angelo's business card saved me %15 percent on my invoice, honestly another reason why I went with them. I will always use them for future glass needs, quick and affordable. Just be sure to have work done during their normal business windows (no pun intended) or you may get an "overtime rate" but not without approval.
We had our master bathroom remodeled and used Angelo & Sons to install a new frameless shower door. We could not be happier or more satisfied with their level of professionalism, promptness, and quality of work! Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable, from those answering the phones to the installation team. After a terrible experience with another local contractor, it was a breath of fresh air to use this company. We highly recommend Angelo & Sons!
Dave handled the work on my clients entire remodel, wood flooring, tile work, backsplash, trimming door frames, and even brought in a painter to do the required painting. He kept his promises and was great with explaining the timing of the deliveries. VERY satisfied! I think it is sad how people are quick to claim bad service when I know his employees are such great workers. Job well done. I will be using Dave and his team on my own home too.
Angelo and Sons installed our new garage door along with window screens and new glass in a window as well as beading on our windows.The techs were on time and did a very thorough and efficient job. The techs were courteous and respected the inside of our home by removing their shoes without being asked.. Very competitive in pricing. Definitely would recommend.
Angelo & Sons came out to repair a window panel after my dog put his legs through it barking at a squirrel. They arrived quickly, estimated the cost carefully, and completed the work in a ridiculously short amount of time. It was flawless work and the invoice was spot on against the estimate. I can't recommend them enough.
I was very impressed with Angelo's work. I had a difficult project with some old windows and Angelo did a great job for a reasonable price. Most important, Angelo stood behind his work, making sure everything was done to my full satisfaction. This was impressive because my project was very tricky and time-consuming.
Ramiro and his team are amazing! I love my "new" home, better than I ever dreamed possible. I have attached pictures of part of our remodel, fireplace and full kitchen remodel. Also popcorn ceiling removal, can lighting install, full bathroom remodel, paint interior. Recommend highly! A++++
This company was great! We hired them to finish our basement and they did a great job. They pulled the permit, walked us through all the steps and kept us involved in the design process. They responded to every suggestion we made. We will definitely be recommending them to everyone we know.
My husband & I hired moline street remodeling in December 2016 to finish our basement. They added a laundry room and a full bathroom. They walked us through the design process and helped us with any questions we had. They finished in a timely manner. I will definitely be recommending them!
Mistakes happen, and when it comes to owning a carpet or rug, mistakes usually mean stains. The plush softness of carpet and rugs comes with a price: the time and care required to clean them. Cleaning your carpet or rugs can require some extra work and special techniques that differ from typical hardwood or tile floors. In some cases, you may even need to hire a professional to get the best results.
For minor stains or routine cleaning, it's possible to effectively treat a carpet or rug yourself. If a thorough vacuuming doesn't get rid of dirt in certain areas, here's how to tackle them on your own.
A number of liquids can stain carpet or rug materials, including wine, coffee, nail polish, or blood, to name a few. Depending on what caused the stain, the carpet or rug's material, and how long it's been there, you may need to use different techniques or cleaning supplies to get rid of it. In general, though, keep the following ground rules in mind for stain removal:
Take these steps to remove a stain as soon as possible to prevent drying.
Some stains may come out with little more than water or a mild soap. More serious stains may require a solvent to make removal easier. The best solvent to use depends on what caused the stain.
-Water-soluble stains: These include berries, cola, food dye, jelly, mud, washable ink, or wet paint. Mix a solution of 1/4-teaspoon nonbleach detergent (or white vinegar) with 32 ounces of water.
-Dark water-soluble stains: Chocolate, coffee, mustard, tea, wine, and bodily fluids often stain much more readily than other water-soluble materials and need a different solvent. Use 1 tablespoon of ammonia mixed in 1 cup of water first. If this doesn't work, try combining one part chlorine bleach with five parts water. These solvents may remove color from certain fabrics like wool, so check with the manufacturer for the best cleaning method.
-Oils and waxes: This would include glue, gum, nail polish, and cigarette residue. The best way to clean each of these varies - some may need to be simply scraped off or, if possible, frozen to make it brittle and then chipped away. Most glue can be dissolved and removed using a solvent like rubbing alcohol. Nail polish may also be dissolved using rubbing alcohol or with nail polish remover containing acetone.
Unfortunately, some stains may prove difficult to remove using household products. In any case, vacuuming and spot cleaning may not be enough to get your carpet or rug looking like new again. That's why many homeowners opt to hire a professional carpet cleaning service on a regular basis, around once every 12 to 18 months.
When it comes to heavy-duty carpet cleaning, you have many options to pick from. The two most common methods for cleaning carpets are steam cleaning and dry cleaning.
Steam cleaning is a common method for professional carpet cleaning, but the name is somewhat misleading. Steam-cleaning services use machines that utilize hot (but not boiling) water in combination with a vacuum. The water is heated inside the machine and sometimes mixed with detergent before being sprayed directly onto the carpet. At the same time, a vacuum sucks up the water almost immediately after hitting the fabric. The hot water extracts far more dirt and stains than would be possible by hand.
Cleaning machines using hot water extraction can be purchased or rented for home use, but they aren't always as powerful as what professional cleaning services use. Improperly drying the carpet may also cause bacteria or mold growth. Professional cleaners also employ a number of other methods to pre-treat the carpet and ensure adequate drying. For these reasons, professional carpet cleaning may be preferable to do-it-yourself methods.
Carpets or rugs can also be thoroughly cleaned using a dry-cleaning method. As the name suggests, there is much less water involved in dry cleaning, which means the carpet can be ready to use in less time. Using powerful solvents to break down dirt and stains, dry cleaning puts less physical stress on the carpet, and thus might be better in the long run. However, dry cleaning is usually more expensive than hot-water cleaning services. In addition, the chemicals used to dry clean carpets might irritate pets, people with sensitive skin, or anyone sensitive to strong odors.
Before choosing a professional carpet cleaning service, make sure you will be getting what you paid for by asking the right questions and doing your homework.
Again, there are pros and cons involved in using a hot-water-based cleaning service or dry cleaning. Take into consideration not only cost, but how long the process will take from start to finish, including drying time. Also take note of the material your carpet is made from, and consult the manufacturer if possible to learn about the best ways to clean it. If you or your family is sensitive to any chemicals, be sure to keep this in mind and ask about what chemicals are used.
You can find reviews of most professional carpet-cleaning services online, as well as information about a company's specific process, the chemicals used, and cost. It's also wise to ask friends and family members about services they've used in the past to get a recommendation. Don't always go with the service offering the lowest price, or hire a service who advertises door-to-door or over the phone, unless you have done thorough research on them.
Carpet cleaning services will be entering your home, potentially while you aren't there, so you want to feel comfortable with the business you trust with this responsibility. Ask if the company conducts background checks on employees, as well as if they are insured in your state. Without liability insurance, a mistake that results in damage to your home or furniture may be your responsibility to pay for.
If you've found a carpet-cleaning service you can trust, ask to get a quote. This may involve specifying exactly what services you would like performed, as well as the size of your home's carpeted area. Make sure you understand exactly what is included in a quoted price. Some businesses may charge extra to move furniture, clean stairs, or use special treatment methods. It's also common for businesses to sell customers on products and services they don't need. Don't hesitate to ask questions if any detail about the quote is unclear.
If you instead want to rent or buy a carpet-cleaning machine to use yourself, you have many options to pick from.
Since heavy-duty carpet cleaning isn't a frequent activity for most homeowners, many choose to simply rent one of these machines. Of course, renting is usually much cheaper than owning a machine or hiring a service, which is the biggest advantage in this situation. But not all rental units perform equally, and some might require extra drying time or the use of special solvents that will cost more. There's also the time and effort that goes into carpet cleaning - renting a unit means you must also move furniture yourself and pay close attention to ensure you're operating the unit correctly. Making a mistake could mean damaging your carpet or the unit itself. Also, improperly drying carpet could allow harmful bacteria and mold to grow. Before renting a carpet cleaner, make sure you're up for the task at hand.
Homeowners can purchase carpet cleaners ranging from compact units to full-size industrial-strength machines. Besides price, take note of the features of a unit and compare them to what you most need from a carpet cleaner. Some models specialize in removing allergens from pet hair, while others may work better on tough stains, for example. Another key consideration: Make sure you have room for it. Some carpet cleaners can be bulky and require ample storage space.
Other features you may want to look for in a cleaning unit include:
Make the right choice in carpet cleaners by considering all the options available to you and how they fit into your needs and budget.
