Jay C., CEO

The morning the pipe burst in the Children’s Museum, Spectrum was on the scene within an hour of being called. . . . Each and every person who we worked with demonstrated a calm and professional manner that was exceptional during a period of such loss and adjustment for the Museum staff. . . . I couldn’t imagine a better group of people to work with through a situation like this.

Kimberly S., Director of Exhibits and Operations

The clean up team was courteous and worked so neatly, swiftly, efficiently.  In the midst of a “sorry” situation, their cheerfulness and compassion for (name deleted) residents was endearing.  An impressive company indeed.

Spectrum cleaned after a wine spill on our light tan colored carpet. They did a phenomenal job! The techs were friendly and efficient. They got the stain out completely and the rest of our carpets, and our furniture, look fantastic! I would highly recommend Spectrum!
