Meet the Locals

Check out these local businesses


Serious Carpet is a locally owned and operated by Joe and Angel Morenz. They previously owned a successful automotive detailing shop called Cory’s Car Cleaners for 11 years. They sold that business in 2004. They loved being in business and after a short break decided to get back into business. They had previously had their carpet cleaned by another local company. Not being very satisfied, they decided to get into the carpet cleaning business — figuring if they were unsatisfied then others must have felt likewise.

Joe and Angel put their experience from the auto detailing to work and researched all the equipment, cleaners and training involved in carpet cleaning. They now feel that they have the best carpet cleaning vans in the area with the right cleaners and the knowledge to know what are the best cleaners and techniques to use. They are certified technicians for both carpet and furniture by the IICRC (The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification). They take continuing education to keep up with new types of carpet and flooring. Most recently they have been certified as Odor Control Technicians. Recently, they purchased a building at 124 W. Washington St Lisbon where they clean area rugs. You can reach them at 330-420-0125.
