Our Story: Where It All Began
Floorcovering Technologies had its humble beginnings in Largo, FL as Harpe’s Professional Carpet Cleaning in 1974.
Larry Kessie bought the business from his new father-in-law in 1983, working under that title until he and Lori expanded their services to include commercial office cleaning under the name, SPRINT Cleaning Services. In 1999 the mountains of Tennessee were calling the Kessie family of 7 to relocate, making Crossville, TN their new home.
Cumberland County has been good to the Kessie family as they
started “from scratch” building on Larry’s experience in carpet, upholstery & ceramic tile cleaning.
Excellent customer service, including promptness and work quality
guarantee allowed expansion into Water & Flood mitigation services. In
2008, Larry along with his son Josiah opened Innovative Restorations and purchased the facility that both companies now share @ 6775 Hwy 70 N Crossville, TN 38571. Today, Floorcovering Technologies specializes in In-Plant Oriental & Area Rug Cleaning.
Our Pick-up & Delivery Service offers the homeowner Door-to-Door convenience in Cumberland County and the surrounding Cumberland Plateau communities.
Floorcovering Technologies has more than 33 years of hands-on experience and (to toot our own horn)… has the satisfied customers to prove it. We have built a business that’s flourished with very little advertising, relying mostly on word of mouth promotion and the recommendations from friends & neighbors.
We consider our reputation our most valuable asset and guard it with all diligence!
