Some staff changes at Connoisseur

Our employee of the last 6 years, Oswaldo “Oz” lee as moved to Long Beach to pursue other interests. Oz developed a nice fan following by many of our customers over the years and I’m sure they’ll miss him and his hard work and big smile.

Taking over his position will be my son, Davis Pailliotet.

Davis has been involved with the business since he was 12 years old and from what I’ve seen so far, he has a better attention to detail than his old man does.

We also just hired a new young cleaning star, Clayton Knipe. Clayton was hired over hundreds of applicants because of his enthusiasm, youthful energy and the fact he had zero knowledge of the carpet cleaning industry.

Only thing harder than training someone about all the fabrics, stone types, cleaning solutions, safe use of the equipment and so on would be the brain washing of a carpet cleaner from another company who is loaded with bad habits and trained to take short cuts and sell sell sell!

Expect to see him out on his own in one of our trucks in maybe 6 months. In the mean time he’ll be learning from the best…


Clayton and Davis


I would like to compliment the young men, Davis and Clayton, who came to our home to clean our carpets on Monday.  They were very professional and did a beautiful job on the carpets.  They were able to remove some stains upstairs that had been there for a long time.  The carpets dried quickly, as they did not leave them really wet.  This whole process went very well.  Davis told me he is your son.  He is a great young man.  I’m sure you are very proud of him! Thank you!!
