Our History, Certifications and Guarantee
CLEAN Choice is a locally owned and family-run company for over 29 years. Shortly after our family began working in the local carpet cleaning industry, we quickly realized that most Baltimore carpet cleaning companies did not provide good customer service, honest upfront pricing or quality workmanship and they didn’t seem to know much about proper carpet cleaning, equipment, or pet odor removal either.
Our mission is to “WOW” every customer, and we have been doing just that since 1989. With so many carpet cleaning companies in Annapolis, Baltimore, Columbia and the surrounding areas to choose from, may we suggest that you examine 3 criteria in making your selection:
Equipment, Training and Service Do Make a Difference!
1. Equipment – Our service vehicles are powerful $90,000 state of the art 250º degree eco-steam cleaning machines. The large vacuum blower, essential to removing maximum soil, contaminants and rinse water, is powered by a 340 hp Chevy truck engine. Most carpet cleaning vacuums are run by your electric or 8 to 20 horsepower engines. The difference in cleanliness, dry time and long lasting beauty and freshness is astounding.
2. Training – We have been IICRC certified firm since 2006 and a CRI-SOA certified service provider since 2008. Look up our qualifications online at www.iicrc.org, www.cri.org, and see our long list of certifications. Also note, how very few companies in our area are certified by anyone. The residential and commercial green carpet cleaning industry is ever evolving with new technology and better cleaning methods, science, and practices. That’s why CLEAN Choice invests heavily in continuing employee education through a variety of cleaning industry certification seminars as well as in-classroom training and IICRC certification programs yearly.
3. Service – IICRC Certified Technicians on Every Job, Each certified carpet cleaning is handled according to industry certification protocols and best green cleaning practices by having at least one Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certified technician on every job! We only select the type of personnel you yourself would invite into your home or office, and we train our service technicians to be experts in their field. We believe in sharing our education with every client so they understand the true importance and value of proper carpet and fabric care. We offer a 10% Referral Rewards Program that earns clients FREE CASH or FREE SERVICES for every referral.
Aren’t All Carpet Cleaning Companies Basically the Same?
No! Reputation, Experience, Education, Systems and Guarantee are the 5 most important considerations when choosing a service company to come into your home or office.
We offer clients a carpet cleaning company that truly performs services with ethics, integrity, and skill in order to provide the highest level of reliable customer service, education, and professionalism every time you need us or refer us.

How To Avoid Getting Ripped Off!
It’s sad but there are people who are just out to get your money without providing a service of any value. But they would not have as much opportunity if there weren’t individuals who they felt could get something of value for a ridiculously low amount of money.
Did You Know? The only requirement to obtain a Maryland business license
“LET THE BUYER BEWARE” is the old adage that rings true when talking about ‘too good to be true’ prices. If you see an ad for carpet cleaning for say $9.95 per room or a $99.00 special … Beware!
These are the “Bait and Switch” carpet cleaners that give our industry a bad reputation. The bait is the low $99 price quote, but when they get to your home the 2 rooms you thought you were going to pay $99 for has grown to more than $300.00 with the high pressure add-ons.
In reality, when you add up the cost of fuel, the truck-mount equipment ($25,000 to $60,000) , the service van ($35,000 or more), employee wages, health insurance, workers compensation, business insurance to protect you, equipment and vehicle maintenance, fuel, office staff, shop, education and certification classes, and many other overheads, it costs the average reputable company over $160.00 just to send someone to your door. And that’s before they do any work. So how can they clean for that price? They can’t! And if you insist they do what they the job for the advertised price, they will either leave, try to get a minimum trip charge for coming out, or you will not get a good job. In fact, they will damage the fibers, contaminate the carpet pile, create a mold farm in your pile, and even void your carpet manufacturers’ warranty.

Keith is extremely passionate about his job and very dedicated to providing the best service possible. I have already referred them to several of my friends and will continue to do so in the future.”Elizabeth Bare in Columbia, MD
