One, eight, four, nine, four, seven, zero nine. Three. One of the questions that get asked often is, um, how did you get started in this business? They would go back to a very far early point. Uh, my father was in the same general industry and so I learned a lot of the stuff through just getting to be around him, watching what he did.
Um, so if you wanted to go and hang out with dad or go do something with that, a lot of times that normally meant that your, Carpet Cleaning Tulsa, whatever it is that you wanted to go do was going to get interrupted by work that he had, that he had to go do a scene that he had a lot of emergency type situations for the work that he would do a plan to go get dinner or to go to see a movie or something that could more often than not get interrupted by a, an emergency call for somebody that needed a carpet cleaning done for, attended. That was gonna move into the next day or a water damage that just got called in. And so there was plenty of times where even on a Thanksgiving or Christmas Eve, you ended up getting to go and spend your time that you’re playing with that are taking a, hanging out with that and bi going into it.
A little bit of some small job that turned into a big job shortly after. But it allowed me to get experience and connection and all these different, um, access access points for carpet cleaning, carpet repair, a water damage, smoke damage, fire damage, restoration work. They, all these different aspects that I was able to grow up in and getting to cover and do. I actually had the opportunity. Um, I started my own company, uh, in high school, uh, but actually the beginning of my, um, my first freshman year in College, my dad actually had a, um, a bad accident where he burned both of his legs and because I had worked with him throughout all of all of those years previously the, you know, 10, 15 years before that time, I was actually able to go and just take over his schedule for them. And for two months while he was in the hospital getting is, I’m getting his legs fixed to you Carpet Cleaning Tulsa.
I’m just, I’m at both of them on fired an accident with some gas that caught fire and then actually burned both of his legs really bad. Um, I was able to take two months off and I just went in there and did all of his work for him so that he was able to make it through that process without losing its customers, without losing his income during that time. Carpet Cleaning Tulsa so I was very fortunate to be able to give back to my dad and that way from all of the stuff that he had taught me because I knew all of his systems and the way that he did things until I was able to fill in for him I’m interested is a perfect match for a couple of months while he recovered. And so there’s part, I think about passing on to my kids that I’ve wanted to do the same thing to be able to give, impart to them, not that they needed to do my work, but that they could learn that work ethic.
They could learn what it’s like early so that, you know, if it was called on them. Carpet Cleaning Tulsa I just happened to be able to be fortunate enough to be able to step up to the plate in this case. But, um, you know, if I ever did have a problem that my kids would have the capacity to fill in for me possibly or someone else would have the capacity because really if it wasn’t for me, there was no one else who could have had a moment’s notice jumped in and helped my dad out for that two month period while he was recovering in the hospital that his business didn’t have to just all disappear or I’ll go to his competitors because of they were available and could get it done and he didn’t have anyone to be able to get it done. So sometimes just knowing, learning that and be able to have at an early age have that capacity.
I just figured that was normal. And as I’ve gotten older and tried to hire people, I’ve realized that finding a 17, 18, 19 year old young man who has the capacity will take on a schedule and do it all himself is actually fairly rare. And so, um, I, I want to be able to impart that into my own kids so that they have that, um, that capacity that, that um, that edge in the marketplace carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998. We’re talking about some of the stuff that happened that was in 2000, I believe when he had burned both his legs, but I was talking more about some of the stuff that happened before that period of time. What, what got my interest or how did I end up in the carpet industry? Um, and in a really odd twist of things, I grew up not wanting to do anything to do with the carpet cleaning side because I always saw it as the thing that took my dad away from, you know, hang out with us.
We got a plan to go to a waterpark, we’re going to go to big splash this weekend. And so we’re going to head out at 1:00 and get spent the whole afternoon at the big splash at big splash and joined stuff. And at 12:00 a phone call comes in and he’s like, well, nope, sorry, we’ve got a big water damage. You’ve got three units that are wet. We need to go and get that taken care of. Then we can go to the waterpark and, and most of the time we eventually make it a water park. But there’s been at least four or five different times I can remember where we went and I would go and help them because I wanted, the faster he got done, the quicker we could go and do something. And um, so we’d be there. And then that one water damaged turned into two and then three and then six hours later we finished up the water damage.
It’s now 7:00 at night and it’s not really, you know, I guess you could go to a night splash, but you know, you’ve, you’ve gone through. And so I wanted to find something else that I could do some other thing that I could do with my life. A carpet cleaning Tulsa. Since 1998, I’ve tried, I tried many different things before I actually decided I would go into the carpet side of things I always did and helped my dad in that aspect because it was an easy way to make money, but also a lot of times it was necessary as a family business. There was times where I just needed to help because that’s what was expected of me. Um, and so I always tried to find something else that I could do to kind of put my own stamp on. I wanted to be able to not just specifically be my own bank.
I didn’t want to be connected to my family, but I wanted to have something that out there that you could go out there and put your own mark on. You want to say that I accomplished this because of my own merits, not just because of what something else someone did. Carpet Cleaning Tulsa in the next episode I’ll cover some of those early things that we went through and tried and did and I’ve covered them in previous episodes, but maybe just give another take or a little highlight or an idea on what it was that we could do. A lot of us, a lot of those early times where I got to stuff that very first time I remember doing any carpet work at all was when I was around for almost five years old and my mother was pregnant with my littlest sister and we were moving into a new home and we’re having to.
My Dad was installing the carpets as part of the, um, the arrangement, I guess we’ve moved in quickly and they didn’t have carpet in it. So he’s gonna install carpet himself to get it done quickly and in budget. And also because my mother was just about to have my little sister. And so this needed to happen like this weekend because she was wanting to nest and we were wanting to move. And I can’t imagine, you know, currently if I was to try to tell my wife while she was nine months pregnant that this is when we’re going to move into a new house because you know, you’ve got all of your stuff already set up into to try to undo all of that stuff and reset it. I’m just beyond my imagination of trying to deal with. But it is a five year old child. It was. It was great to stay up all night long with that to help them install the carpet.
