We’d like to introduce Mike and Paula Pailliotet of Connoisseur Tile & Grout Cleaning. Connoisseur is a quality minded company in the Santa Cruz area (Aptos, Capitola, Watsonville, Corralitos, Scotts Valley, Felton, Boulder Creek, Ben Lomond), also serving parts of Santa Clara county including San Jose, Saratoga , Los Gatos and the Summitt area (minimum charge) . They began Connoisseur as an owner operated company in May of 2001, and continue strong by gaining trust throughout the community.
Although it is a relatively young company, Mike has quite a bit of experience in the industry. He began in the field in 1987, in the L.A. area, working for a large company. With a new family to support (baby Monique on the way), Mike was lucky to find his niche. How many people do you know who truly like their job? In the fall of 1988, the family of three moved to the Santa Cruz area, and Mike began working for a large carpet and upholstery cleaning company in the Bay Area. Not long after that (in 1990) their son, and future employee, Davis was born.
For the next 12.5 years, while working for the large company, Mike gained much experience. He became certified by the IICRC (http://www.certifiedcleaners.org) in Carpet Cleaning, Upholstery & Fabric Cleaning and Stone. (He is now also certified in Stone, Masonry & Ceramic Tile Cleaning.) He was involved in research and development of new equipment, products and techniques. He became confident in cleaning all sorts of carpet, upholstery and area rug fibers, even the ones most cleaners shy away from. He was also the most requested technician, asked for by most of the customers in his territory. Not only were people attracted to his skill and expertise, but also his friendly manner and sense of humor.
Mike put all this experience to work for him in his own business, Connoisseur. Super technicians-extraordinaires Davis Pailliotet and Clayton Knipe are also on board six days a week to help your job get done in a timely manner.
They would love to show you why all the best flooring retailers in town ONLY refer Connoisseur to their customers. Please read through the web site and you’ll find that they are not only the best equipped and most knowledgeable cleaning company in town but also the most respected.
Advance appointments are recommended.
Thank you for visiting.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
One look in our truck is all it takes to know that we are not your regular carpet cleaning company.
We have the equipment, knowledge and passion to get your floors and upholstery as clean as possible. We spend a fortune on equipment to stay on top of our trade, and it shows. We invite you to discover the best kept secret in carpet cleaning in the Santa Cruz Area.
DIFFERENT CLEANING PROCESSES
Steam? Shampoo? Dry Cleaning? They all have their place and we do them all.
Don’t be taken by the many “One Method” cleaners in town. Whichever cleaning process we choose to best suit your carpet or upholstery, rest assured, we will take the time to do it right. You’ll never find us rushing through a job. We know how important each and every happy customer is.
We have the knowledge, equipment and techniques to get your carpet looking it’s best. We will safely and quickly get your carpet cleaned and dry. When it comes to Hot Water Extraction cleaning, our Vortex Cleaning Machine and Judson C4 deliver results like you’ve never seen before. In most cases our “wet” cleaning process will dry quicker than our competitor’s “Dry” process. And you get the benefit of the sanitizing effect that only super hot water can provide. Our Vortex also allows us to clean further away from our truck than any other company in town. We also have a regular sized Cargo type van with a VERY powerful Hot Water (Steam Cleaning) unit inside for getting to more remote locations or for when we have just one person working.
When the going gets tough we use Rotary Extractors to really get to the bottom of things..
Cleaning your carpet to help maintain its looks and to prevent wear is very important. But what is even more important is to keep your home’s filter, your carpet, as clean as possible. Nothing affects in-home air quality more then having your carpets properly cleaned on a regular basis. Studies have proven time and again that clean floors will play the biggest roll in improving your allergen related problems.
The finest flooring retailers in town refer only us to their clients because they know our results cannot be beaten.
“If you are looking for the cheapest company to clean your carpet, don’t look here. If you are looking for quality, dependability, and integrity in a company because you value your home or business and care about extending the life of your carpet and care about how it looks, you are in the right place. Paula and Mike run a top notch service with all of the latest know-how and some incredible work ethic thrown in. They have never disappointed me, and I’m told that I’m picky. I prefer the word discriminating. My time is valuable to me and they are great at respecting my schedule and keeping their end of our bargain. I hope to do business with them for a good while.”

“We have been using Connoisseur for the past eight years to clean the carpets at our 3 real estate offices. Mike and his team are professional and provide quality service. Many of my Realtors also use his service. I would highly recommend Connoisseur for keeping your carpets clean and in top shape.”

“I can not say enough about Connoisseur Carpet, Upholstery, Tile, Stone and Grout Cleaning. I have used them to clean carpet and upholstery and I will never use anyone else again. Mike and his staff have always been timely, pleasant, and informative. They are very accommodating to my schedule, they do not disrupt the rest of the house and prices are very competitive. We have 2 golden retrievers and white carpets and only Connoisseur has been able to (a) get the spots out and (b) leave the carpet so that it actually is dry by the end of the day. Again, I can not recommend this company strongly enough. If you care about your carpet, you will use Connoisseur.”
We gladly service all of Santa Cruz County, including Santa Cruz, Watsonville, Corralitos,Aptos, Capitola, Soquel, Scotts Valley, Felton and all of HWY 9. We also service Santa Clara County, San Jose, Saratoga, Los Gatos, the Summit Area.
