During the hottest months of the year, keeping the air inside your home or office cool is of the utmost importance.
I absolutely LOVE this place and the guys that work here!!!!!! I started going here almost 2 years ago right when Philip took over after my friend recommended them. I am SOOOOOO happy I did. These guys are honest and truly care about their customers and the work that they do! I am always satisfied with the work that they do. Being a girl, I feel extremely comfortable going into this shop and know that they aren't going to rip me off. As far as the last review it seems like you should be more mad at the second shop you went to who ripped you off and you should be writing a negative review for them not for Best Valley since they did not perform the work. Im sure if you just had your brakes done they didn't do a complete overview of every inch of your car and the diagnostic you are referring to was probably a recommendation...they often recommend things to me that I should be looking to get done in the near future. I speak from experience that if these guys recommend a part and then upon going to fix it they realize it might not have been as bad they thought it was will leave it up to me to make the call on if i want to pay the money to fix it or wait, they won't just steal your money like it seems the second shop you went to did. Do NOT let this one last negative comment result in you not visiting this shop, all of my friends and family go here and we have NEVER had a complaint. Philip and his team always go above and beyond with ALL of their customers.
I hired Fakumoh Angbare to fix the air conditioner for my tenants out in Azusa, California. He supposedly fixed it, but my tenants called me back within a few days & told me while he fixed it, he caused More Damage in the ceiling. When I asked the contractor to come out and fix his Additional Damage, he only partially fixed that damage he caused, but Never Admitted Any Fault even though these long term tenants wouldn't Lie to me about something like this & they even supplied me with pictures/statement. The situation did Get Worst because His Work That He Did Had To Be Redone & I had to hire another contractor to come out here to Redo and/or Fix The Work that this contractor Refused To Do meaning that when I told him that the Problem Repeated Itself and asked him to Come Back since his work is supposedly under Warranty, the Contractor Refused and asked me to find myself another contractor. This Contractor Sucks! Howard Paul Shore Angry And Upset Customer
Went here today for a smog check and from the start in walking in, very friendly greeting/staff, very knowledgeable, understandable. I wasn't able to print out a coupon because I had no ink in my printer at home and over the phone they told me to just take a picture of my monitor with the coupon screen loaded on my computer from their website from my cell phone and show them and they counted that as a coupon, which by far very few, (IF ANY) other places would do that i'd be surprised!!! Awesome service and never had a Smog check done so fast. 15-20 minutes. I'm definitely recommending Prieto Smog Center and definitely coming back! Thanks guys!
This is my first time smogging my vehicle and the technician made it very simple for me, he notified me of the process and the options if my vehicle were to fail. He notified me that i would have to pay if my vehicle fails, but that's fine why should anyone work for free. My car passed really well he said, I was in and out in no time. I will highly recommend them to friends.
I would definitely recommend Neighborly heating and cooling to anyone and if need be I will be calling them again. The technician Otis was very helpful, patient, and efficient. He had no problems with answering all of my questions and clearing up any concerns that I had. If your looking for fast, helpful, and honest, this is the business for you.
The young man was very precise and told us exactly what had happened. He told us never to use the oven cleaner. It heats up to much and causes the panel or thermastat to break. So back to scrubbing manually ugh. He was clean and got the job of bringing the oven back from the dead. i would recommend highly. Very resonable too.
I went in to get my first ever smog check and when I was told the total price was ready to forget about getting my tags!! The guy offered to give me the coupon discount and had no problem answering my 50 questions as he completed the test. I would recommend this shop to any and everyone I know who needs a smog!!!!
They have the best deals when you take advantage pf the coupon. There very fast! Now I no the difference between test only and test and repair. They were very friendly really professional great costumer service! My experience was great with them. Thanks Prieto smog! :)
Responsive, Knows their craft, Fair and will not try to sell you something you don't need. Based in Moreno Valley and I live in Fontana that should say it all. //s//David Huber
I brought over two cars and the tests was fair and accurate. I recommed this place to any one looking for exeptional smog service thats quick and well managed.
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.
