About Us

Back on a cold February morning in 1985, two Pompton Lakes Police Officers were in the Pompton Bakery listening to the owner complaining that his floor maintenance man had retired and left for Florida. He was trying to find someone that would wash his bakery floors and could not find anyone. These two officers, Steve Seifried and George Lucietto, told the owner that they would give it a try since the salary of a police officer in 1985 was peanuts. The owner agreed and hired us. Our next problem was that we had no idea where to begin with floor maintenance and what was involved. We stopped at Northeast Janitorial Supply in Pompton Lakes and spoke with the owners, John and Andria Kliphouse and explained our dilemma to them. These folks took the time to explain the art of floor waxing and the necessary machines and chemicals that are needed. As luck would have it, Northeast Janitorial Supply had all the necessary items needed and G & S Floor Service was born. I was impressed with the outcome of our first floor waxing job and apparently so were many of the bakery's customers. In a short period of time the telephone started ringing with customers and this advertising was all word of mouth.

 

One of these customers asked if it was possible we could clean a carpet in her family room since she was having a party several days later and asked if we would clean them. Back to Northeast we went and again John and Andy explained the details of carpet cleaning and rented us our first carpet cleaning machine. This customer was thrilled with the outcome and started telling friends about our work ethic and reasonable prices. A few weeks later we ordered our first carpet cleaning machine and shortly thereafter a vehicle was needed for our equipment.

 

Approximately 1 year after our business started rolling, George felt too much pressure working shift work and balancing the business jobs therefore he told me that he was leaving the business. Since we already had business cards printed up and bill heads made I felt that I would leave the business with the same name. Due to the overwhelming amount of work being requested I needed to get additional help therefore I asked family members for there help along with long time friends and onward we rolled.

 

As of this date G & S Carpet Cleaning and Floor Service is a family owned and family operated business. Customers are surprised to see Joyce or other females show up at customers homes and are impressed to see how they handle the equipment needed to clean whatever needs cleaning.

 

This company went from cleaning a small bakery floor to a total maintenance schedule for schools, municipal buildings, department stores and residential homes. G & S Carpet and Floor Service and the Seifried family are committed 100% for customer satisfaction and the growth of our business proves it. There is no job too big or too small for us too handle.
