Complaint Review: Brimley's White Glove Chem-Dry - Mesa Arizona
Brimley's White Glove Chem-Dry After cleaning our sofa sectional 3 times, it was ruined by incompetent technicians. Mesa Arizona
*Author of original report: Brimely's Customer Service is now hitting rock bottom
Prior to this cleaning, I contracted with Brimley's White Glove Chem-Dry to clean carpeting & furniture twice to our satisfaction. On 9/26/17 I contracted with them to clean our sectional sofa and our 9'x10' rug. unfortunately the prior technician was no longer worked for them. After the cleaning and later examining the sectional I denoted tremendous amounts of discoloration and staining in the bottom portion and streaking on several cushions. The stains & discoloration was not there prior to the cleaning, After complaining to the GM JoAnn Talbott, she would send out her #1 technician to take care of the issues.
The actual person that showed up had less than 3 years experience and brought a newbie trainee with him. I kept an eye on them and when the trainee was cleaning the cushions I denoted that he was applying a lot of pressure. After the cleaning they said they look great but check them out after they dry which would take 3-5 hours. It took over 2 days for the cushions to dry at which time I denoted a tear in one of the cushions plus there was still a lot of stains and discoloration. Again I complained to the GM only to be assured that this time her trainer/expert would be sent out to take care of the issues.
Upon arriving and after examining the sectional, the expert informed me that the stains on the lower section must have been caused by my wife's calves or our pet Schnauzer. My wife's calves?? Our pet is never allowd on the sofa, groom weekly and has her own two separate doggys beds to sleep in. He then insisted that it was the lighting that made the sectional appear stained. After it was cleaned and dried I examine it again only to find stains and discoloration throughout. I sent an email to the GM & complained & she requested pictures which I thn forwarded to her; She replied: It is clean and cleaned propery and offer to refund the cleaning price because of the inconveniece to two additional appointments and repair our torned cushion.
The following morning (Saturday 10/14/17) we moved part of the sectonal outside so we could shoot some pictures in the bright sun. Lots of stains & discoloration!! wqe then took part of the sectional and some cushions to 'Customers Own Fabric" where we had some other items upholstered previously. We met with the owner JR Ordinez, who has been upholstering furniture for over 40 years. He indicated that the fabric in the lower part felt crusty which indicated a problem. Without knowing the exact cleaning process and chemicals used, he indicated that it was either cleaned with water that it was too hot or the chemicals weren't properly mixed which resulted in either burning and/or staining the fabric.
Bottom-line: The sofa cost $4600 from Pottery Barn and is ruined and they won't take responsibility for their incomptence. I'm pursuing this company for reimbursement of the cost of the sofa as well as for the cleaning charges. I wouldn't recomend this company to clean even a dog house let alone anyone's fine furniture or carpets.
