CARPET CARE AND MORE FROM DUSTPLUS
Casey Ivy of Dustplus Cleaning and Carpet Care didn’t plan to get into the carpet cleaning business after graduating from Grants Pass High School. It just happened that way.
“Out of high school, I got employed at a local lumber mill (Spalding’s) and worked there for several years before the industry started to collapse,” said Casey, whose parents moved to Grants Pass as teenagers and never left. “I got the opportunity to go back to college but while I was doing that, a random thing happened involving a vacuum cleaner and that’s what sparked my wife and me to begin our business. We had no background in cleaning, and no plan whatsoever. However, we both came from entrepreneurial families and weren’t afraid to work hard. Twenty-four years later we are still at it.”
Dustplus started out with just residential cleaning services, and they later expanded as they saw a need.
“Our cleaning services include carpet cleaning via a HWE (Hot Water Extraction), truck-mounted cleaning system, which is the industry standard,” Casey said. “We also provide VLM (Very Low Moisture) encapsulation cleaning. We do tile/grout cleaning, upholstery cleaning, carpet repair/stretching and even window cleaning.”
Clients can expect to be greeted warmly when calling.
“Often times I’m able to give a quote for services right over the phone,” Casey said. “If not, we also provide free in-house estimates. I really like to educate clients on different aspects of what we do and why. I feel that’s one thing that sets me apart from others. My goal is to extend the life of my client’s largest investment—that being their homes. Whether it’s carpet, tile and grout, upholstery, etc., when maintained properly, the life of these items can be greatly extended.”
Dustplus Cleaning and Carpet Care also provides pressure washing services, including garage floors.
“We also do residential house cleaning,” Casey said. “That is offered as a one-time service or we do weekly or every other week.”
