Carpet Cleaning expert Joe Gradwohl

Joe Gradwohl

Hello, I am Joe Gradwohl, owner of Buff N' Shine, a professional textile, carpet cleaning , and floor care business serving homeowners in the Lansing, Michigan area since 1984. As a long-time resident of the area and graduate of Michigan State, I enjoy exceptionally strong ties to and involvement in the local community. I also enjoyed raising my two grown children here and spend my free time gardening, golfing, cooking, and managing my investments.

At Buff N' Shine, we take great pride in our work. We are committed to providing the highest quality workmanship in carpet, rug, upholstery, tile and grout, marble, stone and wood floor care for the discriminating homeowner.


What Buff and Shine customers have to say…

“Joe - Sandy and I are really pleased with your service. You and Manuel did a fine job (again!) and the carpet looks great. We will certainly recommend you to our friends and would be happy to serve as a reference – though I suspect that you already have lots of those. Great job. Thank you/”
-John, Ingham County

“Quality of service is important to my wife and myself. Joe and his staff did a excellent job of cleaning the carpet in our home. In addition to our carpet being CLEAN, they were also very neat and professional. I would strongly suggest if you want a quality carpet cleaning done right, call Joe Gradwohl at Buff N'Shine.”
-Ron, Grand Ledge

“Having had our wood floors professionally treated by Buff N' Shine for three consecutive years with excellent results, I felt comfortable entrusting the carpet cleaning to Joe and his staff. We were not disappointed because the carpets were cleaned with the same professionalism as before.”
-Elaine from Okemos

“Joe was happy to come clean my carpets on Saturday with short notice. He and his crew took great care of my furniture and conquered many unidentified spots and stains. Made a 14 year old carpet look great.”
-Karen from Holt

-Julia Allen, Dimondale

“Have used Buff N' Shine five times to clean my carpet. Service very good, employee very polite.”

“I will be a repeat customer. The patience shown to myself as an older person. As the carpet was cleaned I was allowed to ask questions as to the chemical use in carpet cleaning.”
-Jean Green, East Lansing

“Prompt, courteous, professional, careful. The fact that you call ahead and that your service people wear shoe booties to protect against dirt tracking.”
-Sandy from Okemos

“Decent people who are conscientious and do a good job. I am glad that I learned special maintenance tips, like to change my vacuum cleaner bag sooner than I realized.”

“I really enjoy the prompt and timely service. We wanted a good job done—couldn't stand looking at the dirty carpet any more. I called and you came the next day on time, inspected and cleaned well. I am happy and satisfied with my clean carpets.”
-Adrianna Brennen, East Lansing

“You do a very thorough job! Each time it amazes me how nice the carpet looks and the stains I thought would never come out, do!”
-Melissa White, Mason

“They’ve taken care of the pet odor problem by applying enzymes & cleaning both sides of the carpet. Very professional, punctual, answers questions thoroughly, comes back promptly if there are any problems, quick job but good job.”
-Toni and Steve Whittaker, Haslett

“Good people—did a great job on my carpet…my bedroom carpet seems like new.”
-Jim Seegraves, East Lansing

“We are happy with the friendly, courteous, and respectful way everyone treats you.”
-Vane & Libby Jory, Lansing

“I decided to use your company to clean the carpets at my house when I saw what a great job you did in the apartment that my company manages. Apartment tenants with and without pets can get really messy and leave some stains. The third time I saw how clean you got them, I decided to call for my house. What made me happy with the service I got were three things: 1) the edge of the rooms where dust builds up were very clean, 2) sometimes spots disappear once they are cleaned and reappear a week or two later. This time they didn’t, and 3) they left my house clean and undisturbed when they were done.”
-Shelley Lowe, Okemos

“I was very satisfied and my carpet looks new.”
-Emma Jackson, Lansing

“Some places leave dark edges & corners. I think your company is exceptional since you try to take care of this.”
-Shelly from Dewitt

The Personal Floor-Care Approach

One of the great advantages of using Buff N Shine is that it is an owner-operated business. Joe Gradwohl is the one who will be cleaning your carpets and upholstery personally each and every time you call. Don't settle for a different, unknown, untrained person every time you need your carpets and upholstery cleaned.
