In 1962 Jose Hernandez reached the shores of America from his native Cuba with little more than the clothes on his back and a dream of owning his own business. Mr. Hernandez performed a variety of jobs as he worked towards his dream. Several of these jobs were with cleaning companies where he learned there was a tremendous and growing need for quality carpet and floor cleaning services. Mr. Hernandez approached his then employer with a proposition to become an independent contractor in the special services department. Top notch supervision of these services had long been a problem as experience was hard to come by in the new and evolving industry. Over the next 26 years Jose built a reputation for quality and customer service that always has his personal guarantee.
