Student Success Stories

“Carpet Cleaning Academy has been in business for more than 17 years. In that time, we have trained countless students to take carpet cleaning to the next level and make it a reliable source of income. Carpet cleaning is a trade that is still in high demand even in the worst of economies.”

Johan Jana, Fortune Cleaning Company, Las Vegas, NV
“The CCA had helped me so much in getting started. Deon was very informative. I’ve had my doubts before we even started the business, but with Deon and the CCA support, I was able to understand more about the concept. And with his book, he just went deeper into the business so everybody can find their ways to success.”



Kareem Muwwakkil, Owner of Tykoon Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning

“New to the industry, being aligned the Carpet Cleaning Academy, has given my company instant credibility that I wouldn’t have been able to afford on my own. Out the gate, there’s no job that’s outside of my capacity being that I can rely upon this immense network of carpet cleaning expertise – individuals who are there to help upon request. It’s empowering for a young company to be associated with the Carpet Cleaning Alliance. Deon is just a phone call away to answer any questions. Years of valuable industry experience and technical know-how is at my disposal because of the Carpet Cleaning Academy.”

Curtis Lindsay, Owner of Curt’s Carpet Cleaning

Curtis“I met Deon in early spring of 2007 through a mutual friend of ours. I had explained to our friend that I was interested in carpet cleaning and asked if he had known anyone. Well, he put me in touch with Deon, AKA Carpet Cleaning Academy! That first day we met, Deon and I must have talked for about 3 hours or so. Granted, Deon just met me. Deon had clients that he needed to get to. He didn’t have to give me the free top end advice for owning and operating a successful carpet cleaning company, but he did! Talk about a great first impression! After that day, Deon was committed to taking me under his wing and showing me all the things to successfully¬† operate my carpet cleaning business, Curt’s Carpet Cleaning. Since I had a full-time job, I could only meet with Deon on the weekends. I had to sacrifice my Saturdays and Sundays but that sacrifice turned out HUGE in my business’s favor. After a few months of OJT, I had the privilege of working along side Deon and performing real carpet cleaning for REAL clients!!

Well, nearly 6 years have passed since that fateful day of meeting Deon and we remain very good friends to this day! Without divulging how much money I’ve made since training under Deon, I will say that should I decide to leave my full-time job and just concentrate on carpet cleaning, I wouldn’t have any doubts of taking care of myself and my family. Deon is very thorough and knowledgeable about the business and industry. He will show you everything you need to know in order to succeed with your own carpet cleaning business. I speak the truth and if you know me, you know I don’t lie just to pump up someone’s image. Deon is honest, respectful, and most of all, PATIENT! Do not hesitate to ask Deon questions, no matter how “stupid” or “silly” you think they might be. They’re not! Remember, this is YOUR business! You decide how far you will go.

One final thought: You’ve made the best decision to come to Deon! Now you’re only half-way to owning and operating your successful carpet cleaning business. Congratulations on a great start!”

All American Carpet Care, Alex Logan

Alex“From the day I met Deon, he has continuously taught me several things. I met him through Charon Russell (Owner of Mr Fresh Carpet Care). I was down in Sacramento at a class when I was told I need to speak with Deon at the CCA. At lunch we went outside to call and it was great from the start. I soon scheduled a window for him to come to Redding, CA and we worked on every angle of the business. If you are looking to learn the business the right way, you must call the CCA. I even landed jobs during our time together. Including a uniform shop in which we negotiated free uniforms in the deal.”

Josh Raymond, Owner of Eco Pro

Trojan Carpet Care, Yohance Joseph

Yohance“I met a representative from CCA in Las Vegas at a ISSA show. The rep gave me some literature on CCA and explained a little bit about their firm. After doing some of my own research I decided on taking a course with them. The main reason I took the course is they teach you how to clean carpets and get customers. This was the only firm that I found to help you in the field of sales with carpet cleaning. After attending the course I was able to land 4 commercial accounts in 6 weeks. I plan on sending my techs to CCA in the future.”

Cha’ron Russell, Mr. Fresh Carpet Care

Charon2“Deon at CCA gave me a great start to a successful business. They showed me techniques to carpet cleaning, how to get clients, keep clients, and build as a small business. Special thanks to Master Instructor Deon.”

So much so, we send new employees there upon hiring and when they return they are equipped with the knowledge of techs many years their senior. Oh and the price is very reasonable for the education you receive. Ideal for small business or large companies. Thanks CCA!”
