The owner has been the owner and manager of Tinney Rug Cleaners since 1986. He is the third owner of this business that has been operating in St Petersburg since 1920. He began his first carpet cleaning business in 1972, doing steam cleaning in Pinellas County as a price merchandiser. After several years in this business, he expanded into insurance restoration, water damage, smoke damage and odor removal. His was the first company to provide dead body odor removal. During this time, he also served as an instructor for the Fiber Cleaning Schools of America, where he taught upholstery cleaning.
The owner is terrible to work with. Our carpet was returned to us after a week and still had dog hair in the carpet and was matted down. We were told that it was fibers from the back of the carpet. When I pulled the hairs out and compared it to the dog, the delivery men agreed and took it back. Tried talking to the owner and he basically pushed my husband off the phone after interrupting him and arguing that you "can't get everything out". We called again the following Monday to try and speak with them again. The owner was even ruder and kept arguing they were just fibers. When we said even his delivery men agreed it wasnt done right, he continued to interrupt. Paying well over $200 for a rug that was barely cleaned and arguing with customers is not good business.
Just picked up my area rug and it's beautiful again, thank you for doing such wonders. so grateful Great employees, great price! A+
