Our History

From a one person shop in 1971 to our current staff of 150 plus during the busy season.


Gary Peterson began a carpet cleaning service called Rug and Carpet Caretakers, Inc. Gary’s business soon grew from one truck and one employee, to several employees and two trucks providing carpet cleaning services, janitorial services, and fire and water cleanup/restoration.


Gary added lawn service and snow removal. This growth required expansion into an office and shop facility. Rug and Carpet Caretakers, Inc. had developed into a 7 day a week, 24 hour per day operation.


We expanded the original building into a 2-story building and now employ in excess of 60 employees, 150 seasonally.


We expanded our services to include commercial and residential painting. On any given day, we have up to seven painters working on anything from residential painting to new construction painting to commercial painting.


In 2009, we realized that our name was no longer sufficient to support the many job functions that we were providing our clients. In 2010, we officially changed our name to The Caretakers, Inc.
