We coaxed Jeff Bishop out of retirement to give us some insight from his long service and unique perspective of the professional cleaning and restoration industry. From the 1950's to 2018, Jeff was a force in the carpet cleaning industry. He commanded attention in everything he was involved with, from his early days in cleaning to his military service during the Vietnam war, Jeff marched steadily forward through it all.
In our interview he gives insight into how he found his talent for writing during his military career and how that affected his management of Bishop's Clean Care's multiple locations in the Southeast. His technical training programs were one of the founding ideas behind the IICRC Standards development for multiple industry standards.
His volunteer efforts during and after managing his cleaning empire brought about major changes in how industry training programs were built and sustained to this day. He has written volumes on how to clean flooring, especially carpets and wrote many of the beginning procedures for fire and water damage restoration.
This wide ranging interview allows Jeff to give us some sage advice and is part history lesson from someone that has quite frankly "seen it all". Listen in on Jeff to get some free info on how he managed his business from the ground up.
