Carpet cleaning and restoration is a big part of the business at Jimmy Stuart’s carpeting and flooring in Warren, R.I., and owner Jimmy Stuart said he’s never been busier in the 20 years he’s been doing this kind of work: He’s booked about four weeks out for restoration work and the calls keep coming every day. “We’re trying to get to people as fast as we can,” said Stuart.

The flooring covering and cleaning business at 325 Market St. is a one-stop shop for remediation of flooded basements for its customers in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. In addition to the cleaning and restoration services, the retail store also sells an array of carpets, ceramic and vinyl tiles and laminates. “We do it all - from start to finish,” said Stuart.
