Steven began working for the family business when he was just 12 years old! “That first summer, I worked as a carpenter’s helper (it was more like a ‘go get me this boy’ job) with Jim Ferishoni,” says Steven. “By the end of the summer, I could really swing the hammer. That was an important summer, many of the things I learned have stayed with me today. I still have Jimmy’s Hammer. He was like a grandfather to me.”

In August of 1988, after Steven graduated college, he began working full time as a cleaning technician – cleaning in customers’ homes and businesses and learning many other aspects of the company.

At just 24 years old, in November of 1992, Steven took on the role of Rug Plant Manager. Since then he has earned several certifications from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration. He is also a Certified Rug Specialist from the Association of Rug Care Specialists and currently serves on the Board of Directors.

Steven says his favorite part of the job is being able to work with family!

Steven’s Expert Cleaning Tip
If your rug is movable, have it cleaned in-plant. Everyday soil, occasional spills, dust, unhealthy allergens and even insect larvae can penetrate deep into rug fibers. Only will custom in-plant cleaning can we clean throughout the carpet and not just its surface.
