The company performed services in all aspects of carpet cleaning, carpet maintenance, water damage restoration, color repair (spot dyeing), carpet repair, and carpet installation.

He presently works on the Certification Council of the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration as the chairman of the Senior Carpet Inspector committee. Certified by the IICRC in many categories, Mark is a regional supervisor for the organization.
