google is constantly changing the factors it uses to rank sites. it's hard to say how long it will stay this way of if it's just temporary. the same thing happened to one of my sites on this last update. time to get back to work on the seo. start linking, writing press releases and getting citations. with a few hours of work it should pop back...eventually

there is no such thing as a perfect website. also, as shane said have others look it up and try it on your phone in various places around town. local results usually change depending on location. this is especially true if you just google "carpet cleaning"

Your site has only 8 pages, google loves constantly growing content, maybe add a blog and add a post once or twice a week.
Also you have week backlinks, this is the hard part but if you were #1 probably just add more content.

Your number #1 in Dallas too. There is also very low competition in the 7 pack places listings. You should be able to get listed there easily. That would give you two links on page one.

First, I don't think anyone is "ripping you apart' by pointing out where you show up. But one point id like to make is the people here who are checking your rank are likely just checking 'carpet cleaning your city" and it sounds like you are possibly getting work from other search terms like pressure washing, pet odor, etc. Which is great but there could still be room for improvement onvthe main carpet cleaning search. Just a thought.

you're probably showing up in the page 1 locals for a term like "carpet cleaning" but on page 2-3 for carpet cleaning city when the guys look. a LOT of customers just type carpet cleaning and let google do the rest.
