I had an excellent experience with Wiz Team. doing a full air duct cleaning service in my home. From the first phone call, I knew I was in good hands. The customer service was top-notch, and the technician was very knowledgeable. He arrived on time with all the necessary equipment and got to work immediately. He was very thorough and explained the process every step of the way. The results were amazing! I was shocked about how dirty it was, but after the service was complete, there was no more dust in my house. The price was also very accurate. I highly recommend it for its excellent services!

I hired Wiz Team to clean my carpets, and I am extremely happy with the results. They arrived on time, were very polite and courteous, and worked diligently and efficiently. They prepped the area before starting, vacuumed all the carpets, and were able to get rid of all the tough stains that had been on the carpets for years. They also did a great job on the furniture they had to move in order to get to the carpets. The carpets look great, and I am very pleased with the results. I highly recommend it for any of your carpet cleaning needs.

They were very prompt and accomodating of my being a few minutes late. Very friendly staff. I was greeted with a smile and a handshake and introduced to the entire team that would be working on my ducts before they began. They were professional and assured me of all my concerns before the work began. This included the use of rug runners, booties for shoes, corner guards. Professional clean up as well, its like they werent even there aside from the clean ducts. Afterward he walked me through the house with before and after pictures. Like I said extremely thorough. These guys came highly recommended to me by someone whos known for never settling for anything but the best and he was not wrong again this time. Definitely use these guys!!
