Company History

Empire Cleaning was formed by Mel Marcino in 1987. Since then, we have amassed many certifications, from carpet and upholstery cleaning, odor removal, basic carpet repair and reinstallation, smoke from fire, carpet inspection, and that of Master Cleaner.

In the spring of 1992, Mel went off to Chattanooga, TN and Dalton, GA to study to become a certified carpet inspector. He studied carpet fiber types, construction, dyeing, coatings and cushion. He studied mill-related defects, installation problems and maintenance issues. Touring several carpet mills to see the entire manufacturing process of wall-to-wall carpeting and area rugs was an eye-opening experience.

In 1993, having studied and and experienced many different cleaning chemicals, a move was made to shift from using tap water to using softened water, and in some cases, ionized water, to allow safer cleaning solutions for not only the people involved, but the products that we work upon. The professional cleaning industry has made great strides in the last 10 years with better and safer cleaning solutions than ever before. Many of the harsh solutions are still around and sometimes they have to be used in order to get results that customers may demand. However, we understand in these circumstances, the safest procedure possible is required.

We’ve been going green ever since, long before most people had even heard of the term!
