Persistent ear infections were once a big problem for Lewis, VioClean owner Trung Nguyen's dog. Despite following the vet's advice, Lewis's eardrum blew out—a complication that led to a surgery with no explanation for the cause. At first, it didn't occur to Trung that the cause could be related to his carpets. After all, he worked for a carpet-cleaning company while in college, cleaned his own carpets regularly, and flossed them every night before bed. What could the explanation be?
Eventually, Trung looked to the environment inside his house for the answers, which led him to seek out natural cleaning products. Soon after making that change, he was inspired to leave his accounting career and start a carpet cleaning company using only non-toxic products. Now he and his techs offer cleaning services that range from floor cleaning to indoor environmental testing and mold remediation. Their Green Seal-certified products don't leave sticky residue behind, dry quickly, and are safe for children and pets.
