A Boutique Business

Definition of Bou·tique
2: a small company that offers highly specialized services or products

Hi there, I am Bill Soukoreff, the owner (along with my wife Eva) of Tapestry Fine Carpet, Rug & Upholstery Cleaning, a little boutique business in Victoria, BC. I am the ruggedly handsome one in the photo above! You will work directly with me. For over 30 years, I have advanced my trade. My certifications require extensive professional training and experience. I actively mentor other carpet cleaners throughout North America and do product testing and development. Sadly craftsmanship today is hard to find. Marketing gurus have seen to that. But it still can be found if you look for it! So if you are looking for the best carpet cleaner in Greater Victoria, BC, we need to talk! 

Eva works behind the scenes as you can see in the photo above. No doubt you can also tell from the photo that she is brains of the operation! You will probably never deal with her directly. Eva is also an accomplished oil painting on canvas artist and teaches piano lessons over Zoom. For more information please connect with her on Instagram: Eva Soukoreff. Eva has pioneered nanotech colloidal plant-based cleaning chemistry for over 15 years. It’s arguably one of the greatest advancements in safe and natural cleaning chemistry of our life time. Eva and I are thrilled to work directly with some of the greatest minds in the industry. 

Yes, Eva and I are obsessive-compulsive about plant-based cleaning. We also love esoteric business practices from the late 1800s and using them to advance our craft. Somehow along the way, we feel our society has lost what small local business stands for. You know, the mom-and-pop business model. The craftsman and the pride of a job well done. We want to help bring back boutique businesses that offer highly specialized services. Service businesses are unique as the level of service varies. People often call me to ask how much. As if the price is the only factor. Price, quality and value work hand in hand. We focus on value and quality. If you do too, then let’s work together. 

Good enough is the enemy of all progress.” — John Henry Patterson
In the post-industrial revolution landscape, sweatshops were the norm. Patterson understood a simple yet fundamental truth that shaped his business practices. A small business is a reflection of the owner. If someone runs a sweatshop, it speaks volumes about that person. Patterson was known to be a man of high moral character. It is not surprising that such a man cared about the working conditions of his employees. You can read more about this in our blog post: In the Land of the Blind the One-Eyed Carpet Cleaner Is King.

A Little History
In 2006, we opened Get Fresh Carpet Cleaning in Calgary, AB. We pioneered the absolute safest carpet cleaning known at the time based on synthetic chemistry. When we discovered organic nanotech plant-based cleaning technology, we knew it was time to start an efficient and sustainable carpet cleaning business model for the future. We sold Get Fresh and spent the next four years consulting and perfecting our process from the Shuswap (Eva’s home-town) to Prince Rupert and Haida Gwaii. Ultimately we knew Vancouver Island was a natural fit (pun intended).

Support Local Small Business
We believe that Victoria and Vancouver Island is leading the way in the revival of small boutique businesses and we are excited to do our part. Local businesses are more accountable to their local communities. They care about and are invested in the well-being of your community and its future.That is why we love and promote Support Local Small Business in Greater Victoria, British Columbia. Support Local BC is an initiative created to support independent businesses in local communities during the COVID-19 pandemic by selling gift certificates.

We Solve Problems

When McMillan Dubo Law Group had 30 defective office chairs leak grease on their beautiful modern white and grey commercial grade carpet tiles, they hired a couple of carpet cleaning companies. After the disastrous results, they lost hope. That is until we crossed paths with Cheryl Ens. We did some work for her in her home, and so one thing led to another and, well, best to let her explain…

We have white and grey carpets in our office. The first carpet cleaner we had in to clean our carpet just drove the dirt down. The second carpet cleaner we had pulled up all the dirt and grime the first carpet cleaner pushed down. The carpets looked worse after they were done than before. They were so bad that the carpet cleaning company couldn’t even charge us”.

We had Bill come in and look at the carpets, he is so knowledgeable about commercial carpets and how to clean them, he was confident that he could get them looking good again. His machines and products are so different from the traditional truck mounted machines it’s amazing to see how the carpets become so clean and without soaking them. They are literally dry in an hour.

Our carpets look like new, we were so impressed, from now on it is only Bill we call when our carpets need cleaning. You must call him, you will be amazed not only of how clean your carpets are but also how reasonable his prices are. Welcome Bill & Eva, we are very fortunate to have a great company like yours in our city.

Janet Donaldson, the President of Opal Apartments in Logan Lake, BC still asks us to come back every year to care for their three building, 5 story strata building’s carpeted common areas. Janet explains: “The carpets in our Strata Apartment Complex look new again after Bill’s service!  His attention to detail, stain removal guarantee, good pricing, and friendly, accommodating manner leaves the competition far behind. And the quick drying technique is a big bonus in a building where wet muddy work boots are commonplace. Tapestry gets 5 stars!”

When Leanne Erzinger in Victoria, BC was looking for a Carpet & Rug Institute SOA Approved Service Provider to clean her residential carpet, she hired Tapestry. Leanne wrote the following review on Google: “Our wall to wall carpet was due for a maintenance cleaning. We chose Tapestry based on their standard of high quality service, and their CRI certification and seal of approval on their cleaning products. The owner Bill was professional, easy to communicate with, easy to book online, and did a fantastic job cleaning and reviving our carpets.
We highly recommend Tapestry!”
