ALBION – The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle put a call out to its readers, seeking their favorite businesses for a variety of services and products, including the area’s best carpet cleaner.

When the votes were counted, an Albion business won a Silver Award in the 2013 Rochester’s Choice Awards.

John Burris started Burris Cleaning Service in 1991 when he was 21. Burris has one employee, Mark Proietty. They do about 80 percent of their work in Monroe County near the city of Rochester.

The business is based from Burris’s home on Route 98, just north of the bowling alley.

Burris said he is grateful the business has built a following and a good reputation in the Rochester area.

“We do things other cleaners won’t do,” he said. “We vacuum everything before we clean and the carpet is dry before we go.”

Burris has attained master certification in the industry for cleaning carpets, upholstery and oriental rugs. The 1988 Albion graduate travels to see customers in “The Vac Van.”
