The History of Gerlach Cleaning Systems, Inc.

Gerlach Cleaning Systems, Inc. was established in 1978 by Andy Gerlach. While attending Ohio State University, Andy was cleaning carpets part time to make ends meet. At the time he was cleaning with a portable machine (like the kind you can rent now) and the truck powered machine had just come to market. After seeing the incredible results this machine performed, he decided to launch Gerlach Cleaning Systems, Inc.

From the beginning, Andy realized the value of an IICRC education and certification. Andy immersed himself in attending continuing education classes, studying cleaning magazines, manuals, and networking with other professionals in the Central Ohio area. As a result, Andy, along with Gerlach’s exceptional staff, began to solve many of the difficult cleaning concerns for carpet retailers, designers, and homeowners. Over the years, Andy, and Gerlach’s exceptional staff has continued to build the company through education, customer service, and quality work.

Gerlach Cleaning Systems, Inc.’s staff brought a service level that surpassed their client’s expectations, earning the company an outstanding reputation. Because of the quality of their work and customer service, Gerlach Cleaning Systems, Inc.’s customers have requested that additional services be provided.
