I had such a great experience with Pinnacle Eco Clean. I had exterior paint spill on my brand new custom area rug. I called Pinnacle in a panic and they came out within 45 minutes, grabbed my area rug, took it back to their shop and cleaned it all within 6 hours. I can't thank them enough for being so understanding and caring during my panic filled phone call. Their service is amazing!
