Great Divide Cleaning Service: Owners no scrubs when it comes to good work
It’s a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it and do it well.
The staff members of Great Divide Cleaning Service are those people when it comes to keeping the floors of Northwest Colorado spiffy as the Best Carpet Cleaners of Moffat County.
Dale and Andrea Camp have owned the business since 2001 and provide cleaning of all sorts to Craig, Meeker, Hayden and even parts of Wyoming, touching up carpet, linoleum, tile, upholstery, concrete, vehicles, boats and plenty more.
“You just gotta know your stains,” Dale said of the different types of challenges he sees in various forms.
Since purchasing the service from previous owner Steve Herman, they’ve also expanded the ductwork and water and fire damage restoration elements, Andrea said.
Ironically, one of the few floors for which they can’t provide professional cleaning is in the office/living area of their home and headquarters on Craig’s East 10th Street, the wooden flooring requiring a different type of process than they use.
Don’t worry, the house and floors are still immaculate, and the space allows them to stay close to family.
“It works well, because then you don’t have the added expense of having an extra location and it’s all in one central location,” Andrea said. “All our vans, all our equipment is right here, so that makes it handy for us.”
The Camps also have recently seen employee Tanner Snyder step up and help run things while Dale was temporarily unavailable to work in the past month.
“Kudos to him for all he’s done for us,” Dale said of Snyder.
The most important thing about a business of any type, cleaning or otherwise, the couple said, is to keep a squeaky clean relationship with the customers. Both Andrea and Dale grew up in the region, and being part of the scene allows them to serve the community that has given them so many great experiences throughout the years.
“Interaction with some great people is the best part of it by far,” Dale said. “We love our customer base. There’s great people in Craig.”
