About Aqua Cleanse


Owner & Founder of Aqua Cleanse

I started carpet cleaning in 2003. Prior to Aqua Cleanse, I worked for another carpet cleaning company for 2 ½ years learning the ins and outs of the job. In June of 2008, I started Aqua Cleanse, servicing the greater Orange County area for over 10 years. I’ve been dedicated to creating a reliable and trustworthy cleaning service since the beginning. My other passion is my family and friends. When I’m not cleaning your carpet, tile, or upholstery, I’m spending as much time as I can with my beautiful wife, Amanda, our amazing daughter, Alex, and our extended family and friends.


Aqua Cleanse Partner & Restoration Expert

Prior to working in the carpet cleaning industry, I was an electrician for 4 years. I wanted to try a new career, so I decided to change my emphasis to restoration and carpet cleaning in 2008. My goal was to learn the business and help others by restoring and cleaning their homes. I started with an open mind and developed a passion to learn everything within the industry. I’ve become one of the top contractors in the restoration and carpet cleaning community. I’ve learned so much about cleaning and providing the best customer service possible. Over the years, I’ve serviced Orange County, San Diego County and Los Angeles County by providing a trustworthy, reliable, and honest approach toward every customer I’ve served. I plan to dedicate my service for Aqua Cleanse clients for years to come. When I’m not working, I’m spending quality time with my family and friends. I have a wonderful 9-year-old daughter named Presley. She is the light of my life and definitely keeps me on my toes!

What to Expect from Working with Aqua Cleanse

I’m big on communication. I’ll give you as much information about my process and the expected results as I can. I’ll always stand by my quotes, never trying to upsell you on anything.

 I ONLY use top of the line organic products, mainly consisting of citrus and alkaline water.  Astonishingly, I can still get amazing results without using harsh chemicals.
