Most vile company I have encountered. Hard to say I worked for considering I worked but never got paid. Work you all night county to county only to say you gotta go back out in 30 minutes. Do not care for your safety. Cannot repair their vehicles with the worthless mechanic they have there. DO NOT EVEN APPLY TO THEM. YOU ONLY PRIVIDE THEM WITH FREE LABOR.
Do not, Do NOT, DO NOT by any means ever find yourself working for the company Elite Care, LLC. I was employed by this company for two months. I was told my first check would be held, so I worked for nearly a month and a half without a paycheck. Once my first paycheck was received (It actually came on time) it was short the hours I worked before I had an official employee clock-in number. My first check was 112$ that I worked nearly every day of 70 waiting to receive. Maybe it was just a mistake. I continue showing up, doing my job for my employer, as asked. (7 days a week, mind you, on an advertised 3-5 day a week gig, no complaints from me.) Next paycheck is due on March 12th. (Paychecks supposedly come the 12th and 26th according to the hiring paperwork) No paycheck the 12th. 17th it shows up. After being promise it had been sent the prior Friday (7 full days before) AND THEN on Tuesday, it shows up with a check stamped in Largo, Florida (origin) March 15th. Five days after original promised date of sending. I'm so excited. Finally my first full check after a lot of stress and wait. I open it up, it's less than half of what I expected it to be. I worked over 13 days that 14 day period and received a check for less than 5 days worth. Try to get "Kelly from Finance Dept" on the phone (the person lying about the checks) and now she suddenly won't answer. As you can see this company is not worth working for. You will spend more money and waste more time than you'll ever see in return. Also, if you are considering contracting Elite Care, LLC. as a company to service your retail store or any other establishment, DO NOT HIRE THEM. ESPECIALLY if you value your employees and believe people should be treated fairly and compensated justly for work they do.Just as the above poster, I, too, will be seeking advice from a lawyer and following up in small claims court to secure the money they owe me for all the time I gave them.Thanks for your time, Kevin McLean.
I would give them 0 stars. Terrible company to work for. Liars, frauds, crooks. They don't pay you. You literally have to call them constantly to get your money. The owner Leasa is rude and gives excuses as to why she doesn't pay her employees on time. Everyone is rude honestly. Very unprofessional. I have no clue why this company is still in business. Steer clear of Elite Care. I promise you will regret it if you work for them. I never worked for a company that didn't pay their employees. And then instead of trying to resolve the issue and get your check to you asap they get an attitude with you. Just stay away. If you see their ads on craigslist PLEASE KEEP SCROLLING.
My advice is to never let them take a rug away from your home. If it doesn't come back the way it should, it could take weeks to get anyone to do anything about it. If ever.
This company gave me a job when nobody would hire me. I working here for 3 years. The people treat me good.
The only other review on here is by the boss of the company tony, really ������������Nobody has anything to say that actually were a customer? ����
Went to work for this company they are crooks along with this man mark 727--656-4880 who told me to go to job to work and sign application month later still no check the usual run around don't even attempt to work for this company they WONT PAY YOU THEY MAKE YOU WORK FOR FREE ! I would not even give them a star but can't post review!
I would not even give this company one star. I worked for this company for one week. They were unprofessional. They waited two weeks after I had quit to send me my paper work to fill out. I was cleaning the Michaels arts and craft in brandon. That place was filty,mess I made it glow after four days. Well the forth day, someone was to be at the account by 6am, we'll he didn't get there till 645 with the propane tank, so I can run the machines but yet I had to be gone by 7am cause the don't pay you after that. So anyways he came in snapping on me, so I went off. First of all I own my own small commercial and residential cleaning business. I only took the little part time job for extra cash to privately buy my spouse a 1500 dollar engagement ring. I quit that day. I was so upset how he came at me. I been calling back to back about my check and now someone is answering when I was suppose to get it two weeks ago.very unprofessional company. My company name is 5 star legacy cleaning services. Serving Osceola Hillsborough and Polk. We have 5 star ratings on every website we are affiliated with. 813 6382323 get the job done right the first time.
I am extremely impressed with this company, Kenny and Sean were friendly efficient and reliable.I called on a Saturday and they came out the same day, repaired my broken a/c at a very reasonable price. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone.You won't be dissapointed!
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.
