I would recommend Lowry's Carpet Care to anyone that requires quick, reliable, and professional service. Lowry's replaced carpeting in our Conference center. We were most impressed with their follow-up after the sale just to make there were no loose "threads". We value the special attention we received from the staff at Lowry's Carpet Care.
