AA Super Klean has proudly been in the carpet cleaning business for 30 years! Through those decades, many things have changed in our industry, the town, the country, and the world. Today, we’re taking a trip down memory lane from 1986 to now.
Our Journey Through 30 Years Of Carpet Cleaning
From Pretty in Pink to the Challenger Explosion and the disaster at Chernobyl, it’s safe to say that 1986 had its ups and downs. While we were busy starting our business by cleaning the bright shag carpets installed during the ‘70s and the new styles of the ‘80s coming through, Halley’s Comet soared through the solar system and the first 3D printer was sold. The ‘80s are definitely a decade to remember.
The 1990s brought an incredible technology surge to the United States, and Casper’s population began to grow again thanks to advances in our coalbed methane drilling industry. More people meant more carpets to clean, which we were of course grateful for the increase in work. The ‘90s brought revitalization to home decor with the help of interior decorators (who appeared in relevance for a short period of time before homeowners had access to the many blogs on the Internet).
We survived the new millennium! I don’t know about you, but I was preparing for Y2K! Thankfully the carpet cleaning business kept thriving throughout the new millennium and the market crash of the late 2000s. While fewer people turned to professional carpet cleaning during the recession, there was still value placed on health and happiness of the American family.
Another interesting element that kept the carpet business moving was the Jackson Canyon Fire in 2006, which burned for 11 days. People came together to help people restore their lives after the fires, including cleaning up the homes.
Here we are in the present! We’ve made it 30 years so far in the carpet cleaning business, and we look forward to many more to come. Our equipment has been updated, our company family has grown, and Casper continues to grow and thrive.
Home styles have transitioned to more hardwood floors and further from unique upholstered furniture, but that doesn’t stop our work. People love the feel of carpet under their toes on a cold Casper morning, and AA Super Klean will gladly help keep carpets new and old in great condition.
