Carpet Cleaning FAQS


At Like New Cleaning Sarasota/Bradenton we realize there is a lot of information you need, to make an informed choice about who to clean your home and how will it be cleaned.

So, we put together this Carpet Cleaning FAQS page together to assist you in making the best decision possible. If you have a question that you don’t see the answer to, please do not hesitate to give our office a call at (330) 244-6213



How long have you been cleaning Carpet?
Our owner, Kevin Stolicny has been cleaning carpet since 1997. He also has done speaking appearances for clubs like Kiwanis, Mothers of Multiples, Rotary, and been an expert guest host on numerous radio and TV shows. He also hosted his own radio show called “Carpet Guy Radio” in
Canton, Ohio. He has taught numerous spot/stain removal classes for schools, businesses, and church janitorial staff.

Do you send technicians to clean or does the owner come?
Our owner is also our primary cleaner. We do have an excellent partner here in Sarasota that sometimes handles jobs for us, and we stay in close contact with him when he is doing jobs for us (which is VERY rare!). He also is fully insured (see below).

Are you licensed, bonded and insured?
We carry full service liability insurance (which has only been used once in over 20 years).
The state of Florida has no licensing requirements for carpet cleaners. We are not bonded as bonds only cover employee theft, and we have no employees. Our liability insurance covers us as an owner
operator, just like a bond would if we had employees.

How long does it take to schedule an appointment?
All clients are called back within 24 hours after they submitted their info to our
Website Estimate Form OR you can call (330) 244-6213 now to setup an appointment sooner.

How long does it take to get an appointment and get serviced/cleaned?
Most clients are serviced/cleaned within 3-5 days.

Are evening and weekend appointments available?
Yes, we are more than happy to serve your home when it’s best for you.

What cleaning system do you use?
Primarily we use low moisture bonnet cleaning with encapsulation detergents, but the
condition of the carpet, and issues it has determines which system is best suited for the best results.
Truck mounted and portable hot water extraction is also available, and used when needed!

Are your cleaning products safe?
We have over 20 years of combined experience, and have cleaned over 3,000 homes and businesses in over 15 states. In that time, we have never had an issue with unsafe products.

Do you do rugs on site?
We only do rugs on site. Our cleaning systems are designed to keep the moisture in the rugs to a minimum so your don’t have the extra expense/risk of us transporting your rugs!

What do I need to do to prepare for my cleaning?
This is one of our favorite parts of the Carpet Cleaning FAQS here at Like New
and we have dedicated a whole page to it. Just click on How to Prepare for a Like New Cleaning
