The opportunities for education available in this industry are incredible! I have certs from Dying carpet to flood restoration, odor control to upholstery cleaning
Having the tools gained from classroom and hands on experience with trained instruction from the likes of Ed York and The Pembertons is worth every penny I spent. Imagine trying to learn this business from YouTube and internet forums. Yeah right.
My Start in the Carpet Cleaning business began in San Diego in 1986. I had just been discharged from the U.S. Navy after serving 4 years. My master plan was to get a fill in job until I found a career using the skills that I had learned in the Navy. I answered an Ad in the San Diego Union, for a carpet cleaner. I'll never forget the ad boasting I could make $1000.00 a week cleaning carpets!! I figured, what the heck! I put on a nice suit and tie, and went for an interview. Wow was I impressed! These people wore suits and ties , the technicians were well groomed friendly, uniformed just like the picture on the home page. I went to work on Monday.
