Jhane Austin –

“Gulf Coast Restoration 1 did an excellent job on our carpets. I haven`t used a professional carpet cleaning service ever since we moved to our house in because I thought cleaning the carpet by myself was good enough for us, but there was a big difference between how I cleaned the carpets and they did. Now the carpet looks brand new, and I`m thinking of using their upholstery cleaning service to clean an old sofa I have.”
