Eric and Larry are from Maine and New Jersey respectively. They met at Keene State College in New Hampsire as undergrads getting their BS in being muscleheads. They cared more about the gym than most other things. They trained at the Fitness Factory in town and the walk wass about a mile from campus, sometimes a cold mile in rain, snow, and wind. Eric and Larry walked through a blizzard one Saturday to get to the gym to find out it was closed because of the weather.
They staying touch over the years. Eric moved to Utah, got married and started a family. Larry moved to California, got married ,a started a family. Larry was visiting Eric in Utah in 2007, when Eric wass starting an air duct cleaning business called Shamrock. Eric talked Larry into helping with a job in Park City, Utah. Aig house, lots of work. Then he talked Larry into joining his venture into entrepreneurship.
Eric and Larry were going to focus on spectacular service with a great attitude, and work ethic. Nothing was going to stop them! They started in January 2008, right when the economy was taking a large turn. Shamrock expanded the air duct cleaning business to California where Larry was in Rancho Cucamonga, expecting the work load to be large enouph to go back and forth to Utah.
Shamrock also changed the name to California Healthy Home. The work load was large for about 2 months, then the economy turned more. They were in survival mode doing any job they could get, from janitorial service all night long to trash outs all day. They started getting requests to clean carpet so they started that, then tile, and uplostery. They even went to a school in Canada to learn to polish stone. Work improved with all the services, the chamber of comerce in Rancho Cucamonga, Upland, and Claremont helped also. Then a big restoration company asked Eric and Larry to clean carpet for them. They would go to a job and the client would be so angry with the restoration company but like us a lot! They were not getting good service so Shamrock decided to give good service to the restoration industry also. Eric and Larry go certified in water damage and mold remidiation, bought some equipment and were in the restoration business too!
Shamrock has grown over the years to over a million dollar company per year. They have strived to make Shamrock’s clients happy and have a referral based company. There are many stories that can be told about interesting clients, special team members in many ways, and situations that could not be made up.
This is Eric on his first day of Shamrock! Ready to clean air ducts.
