Watch What’s Revealed When This Carpet Is Pulled Up and Removed
July 11, 2018
I’m wondering how many of you have ever had an experience like this.
A family decided it was time to finally replace their living room carpet. (If you’ve ever pulled up carpet before, it’s a lot harder than it looks, so my hat goes off to them.) After they were able to roll it out of the room, they were shocked to find what was hiding underneath their carpet. They certainly weren’t expecting as much dirt as they found.
“This is what years and years of dirt build up looks like,” they wrote under their video on YouTube.
Now here’s where the value of the video becomes even more alarming. This video captured years of a home, where one family had been living. What do you imagine it would look like if this was an office building that has more than five employees? What about 100? 5,000—all who are bringing in different levels of dirt and bacteria from their shoes into your building each day?
Carpeting in your office can be a major expense and investment, so it’s important to make sure the proper carpet care is taking place on a schedule. (Hint: This means way more than just a daily vacuum session.)
That’s where City Wide can help you. We’d love to come to your office and customize an annual maintenance program that will help you avoid the dirt and grime build-up happening on a daily basis.

I wanted to pass on to you that the gentleman working to remove rust from beneath the walkway is doing a fantastic job. It is a labor intensive project and he seems to be very well qualified for the job. His past experience was evident when we spoke this afternoon with the architect who came by to check on progress. They discussed the need for sandblasting before prime and paint, and your worker was very well versed in the different techniques. I feel lucky to have him working on the walkway. In spite of the rain, the crew has worked most all day today. Thank you.
Thank you! Your crew did an outstanding job at Taste of Leawood. Very professional, hardworking, and made sure everything was taken care of. I look forward to working with you again in the future.

We have a great relationship with City Wide – there is no comparison to the other companies we have used in the past. They adapted very well to a food safe environment and are great about getting things done in a timely matter. Their people have been very good to work with; when we have special needs they are quick to get quotes and get the work done. We are very happy with City Wide.

City Wide does everything I need and I love it! If my facility needs attention, I reach out to my City Wide contact to see if it is something they can help with, and I haven’t been told ‘no’ yet. It’s refreshing and a time-saver to have one contact who can manage so many services for me.

Since City Wide took over our building maintenance, we’ve noticed positive changes. The cleanliness of the building has improved, staffing has been much more consistent, and communication with our team is greatly enhanced. It is very apparent that City Wide is committed to provide the highest level of service possible at every level. Their management team is truly engaged with their teams in the field and in touch with all the challenges and obstacles at our facility. They are flexible and quick to react to the needs of our facility as they arise and change. They have exceeded our expectations, and it is truly a pleasure working with our partners at City Wide.

Ever since hiring City Wide in July 2014 the service has been exemplary. We have had two account managers during that time and both have been phenomenal. The cleaning crews always do a great job and assist me in remembering to order supplies. City Wide offers all the extras as well which saves us time as we don’t have to shop around and we can just have the services done when needed. You cannot ask for a better facilities solution.

I greatly appreciate City Wide’s business model and services they manage. City Wide acts as an extension to my maintenance team which is a major weight off my back. It is very nice to know that each and every time any type of facility project steps outside of my maintenance team’s scope, City Wide can be there to step in and do the job needed without me having to manage it. Thanks City Wide for all you do for us!
Distribution Coordinator Pure Fishing
Just a note of appreciation. Our Facility Services Manager has made sure I receive the best service that my company deserves. Your crew does a great job and we are very happy with their work. I am sure I’ve put you to the test in the past and you have not let me down; you always make me shine. From cleaning our offices and windows to landscaping and snow removal, you are number one with me. I commend City Wide for their commitment to outstanding service and would recommend City Wide to any business.
Office Manager MAAA
Thank you for all of the hard work. Those who help us with the handyman services and furniture moving were fantastic and did a great job! I know we will have more in the near future and will be reaching out again.

We have worked with City Wide for over 25 years. I have always found them to be an open book on their pricing and willing to go the extra mile on the execution of their work. If there is an aspect of their work that I don’t understand, we discuss it until we find a solution acceptable to everyone. We will continue to use them for our tenant finish needs and maintenance work.
