The Origins of a Cleaning Empire
Originally, Carpet Tech was started by my brother Chad when I was still in High School. He began the carpet cleaning business in order to make money to get himself through college at Texas Tech using a minivan with a small carpet cleaning machine inside. My brother was always my hero but as I watched him continue to grow his business my admiration became even greater. Then on December of 1995, our lives were changed forever.
My brother Chad, at the age of 23, was diagnosed with terminal cancer. When Chad was too ill to continue with the business, my father sold the minivan to a fireman in Lubbock while I graduated high school and accepted a scholarship to play football at Texas Tech. Chad did not make it another Christmas. He passed away in September of 1996 and I was devastated. I quit school, quit football, and had absolutely no direction. My brother was an amazing person. As fate would have it, it was not long before the fireman who bought Chad’s carpet cleaning van called and offered us the chance to purchase it back. We jumped on the opportunity and Carpet Tech was reborn in 1996.
In the beginning, I had no plans to grow the business; it was just something to keep myself busy. I then began to dream. I wanted to finish what my brother started using his vision as the foundation for Carpet Tech. He built Carpet Tech on honesty, integrity, and customer service and I had a plan to continue his legacy using his values and lots of hard work. So I began to push and sell and use all my energy to produce and grow the business in order to bring honor to his memory.
