Tile or carpet, makes no difference to Nick Flatt, as the Sunnyside man recently opened a floor cleaning business here called Von Flatt Carpet Cleaning.
The focus is on meeting the client's needs with his portable floor cleaning operation.
Flatt has been involved in the floor cleaning business on a part-time basis for the past three years and says in the last year he has pursued it fulltime.
He started in Western Washington, and with wife Alex relocated here when a friend in the rental recovery business opened up for business here in Sunnyside.
That has helped give Flatt a foot in the door to start his cleaning business. He knows to make it go it comes down to making the customer happy.
"Not many homes here have a lot of carpet flooring, so I've adjusted," says Flatt, a trained and certified floor cleaner.
As a result, his flooring expertise is not only available for carpet, but for tile flooring as well.
He is also experienced at cleaning drapes, motor homes and even boats.
Using a hot water extraction method, Flatt says he has had great success in stain removal from flooring surfaces.
Wax, ink, lipstick and crayon have all met their match with Flatt, who also uses a three-day pre-spray treatment process to get out the toughest of stains.
That pre-spray system is also helpful, he says, for thoroughly removing cat urine and its odors. That includes removing the scent so the feline isn't tempted to go back and "mark" the same spot.
Flatt's been in business here about six weeks and is offering an introductory special in which he'll clean up to 800 square-feet for $129.
He can be contacted by calling 509-703-0805 or 425-260-0884.
