It Runs in the Family
Dave’s experience extends far beyond the launch of his business. He remembers his mom owning a cleaning business as he was growing up and continued in her footsteps, but with some added services he is proud of. Prior to opening his own business, Dave delivered pizzas in the evening and sold vacuums during the day. One of his customers introduced him to a family member in the carpet cleaning business, which he then began sub-contracting for. This new-found interest in carpet cleaning ignited a fire inside of him and a desire to go out on his own.
“Repeat customers are what helps us keep growing,” Dave explained.
“They make up 60-65% of our current customer base.”
The relationships he has built with his repeat customers over the years has sparked a desire to gradually add new services based on need. If they asked about a service that he didn’t currently offer, Dave would do some research and find the most efficient and cost-effective way to add this to his portfolio.

He hopes to continue to pursue community efforts and get more involved in his local chambers as well.
