Help with my website.. BRUTAL OPINIONS!

I run a Houston carpet cleaning business and think my sites needs a bit of
optimizing. I've had a lot of people say it was very warm and pleasant, but I think I need a bit of real honesty from fellow owners. Be brutal if you truly feel you have to. What do you like or dislike about it? Thanks!

the first thing i noticed is that the images on your slideshow seem a little warped, like they're flattened out a bit.

another thing is you don't have a sitemap, sitemaps can help search engines in crawling your entire site and therefore increasing your rankings.

Thank you. I never thought about site map. I'll create one today.
You would have to be crazy not to notice the warpness of the pics lol.
Until I get a wrap for my van, I have to stick with these images!

Thanks again

Thanks.. I had to revise the whole site due to unfortunate circumstances. Very frustrating. In the process of re-writing content and blogs.

I think your website looks very nice. The only thing that really stuck out to me was the picture with the company name on the work truck. You can't read the company name on the sign, only the phone number. And the sign is a little crooked on the truck as well but it might just be me who notices things like that!
Otherwise it looks very nice.
Good luck!

Haha, yeah! That pic was old. We were testing the slider! We are getting our van wrapped soon and that will replace the old pic with a much more HD pic. Thanks for the input!

The logo looks good!

I would take the services text ("Carpet Cleaning | Upholstery Cleaning | Water Extraction"), phone number, and email address out of the image and place them in the actual page as text.

This a) allows search engines to see them so you have a chance of ranking for those keywords and b) allows users to copy/paste your contact info and mobile users can click on the phone number to instantly dial.

That's a good thought. However, the number and those words are every where on the site lol.

I like the site, my company sells a similar site except its proven to bring in new customers each month, and its only $99 a month. Its a great way to make any cleaning business grow.
