Gerritt 1 crop | Carpet CleanersHey there I’m Gerrit Van Halteren.

A little bit about me… I have always been known as a hardworking, enthusiastic, and a friendly person. Growing up in Lindsay Ontario watching my family run, own, and operate their own music store from an early age gave me the drive to want to be a entrepreneur and inspired my passion for family and music.

After working for Chem-Dry of the Kawartha’s for several years I knew I had found a product and service I could stand behind 100%. When the opportunity arose I did not hesitate to take over this well established business with my good friend and co-worker Bradley Mackay
