Our goal is to meet and exceed your expectations when it comes to restoring the look and value of your investment.


We are a family-owned, owner-operated carpet, fabric and Oriental/Persian rug cleaning company that understands the value of your investment. We were established in 1995, in Huntington Beach, California. I joined the original business owner in 1998 and operated my own carpet cleaning van. I worked mainly in small homes and apartments, cleaning and restoring some of the filthiest carpets imaginable. In early 2007, I assumed full ownership of the company and chose to restructure and expand the company’s services.

I began to implement my own vision and direction for the company. I wanted to keep the company small, and family-owned. I had no desire to create a large company that just sends out “trained technicians”; after all, “The Specialist” is not just a name- it’s who I am. I decided I would personally service every one of my clients to ensure that every job would be completed the right way, the first time around. With one van and one exceptional truck-mounted steam cleaning machine, I set out in 2008 to start building solid relationships with my clients.

By the end of 2010, my plan to restructure and reorganize the way our company conducts its business services was complete. I have taken the time to increase my extensive education, becoming certified in: Carpet Cleaning, Oriental Area Rug Cleaning, Upholstery Cleaning, Odor Removal, Color Restoration and Water Damage Restoration. I am an EPA Certified Renovator and a Certified Flooring Professional. Additionally, I am a member of many respected associations, such as the Better Business Bureau, the World Floor Covering Association, The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification and the Carpet and Fabric Institute.

Integrity, Quality, Communication and Professionalism are the cornerstones of my business. I look forward to developing a life-long partnership with you, servicing all of your home textile cleaning needs. Call on me when you want the best!

Your friendly neighborhood carpet, upholstery and rug cleaning “Specialist”.
