After 5 years of service to his country in the U.S Coast Guard, Scott Vandergriff set a goal to establish a service business in the area where he lived. Scott secured a position as a carpet cleaning technician with a local Franchise cleaning firm. Frustrated by inefficient systems to operate by and a lack of emphasis on the customers needs Scott decided to make his goal of opening his own business a reality. In 1995 Regal Carpet and Tile Care was born and began serving the Polk County area.
Scott immersed himself in attending IICRC continuing education classes, studying cleaning manuals, and networking with other professionals in the Lakeland area. He learned everything that he could about water damage clean up, carpet, fabric, and textile cleaning. As a result, he began to solve many of the difficult cleaning concerns for Insurance Companies, carpet retailers, designers, and homeowners. Most other cleaners and restorers did not know how to solve these problems, so it created a niche for Regal Carpet and Tile Care. Over the years, Scott has continued to build the company through customer service, and quality work.
In January of 2013 Quick Dry Emergency Services was established. Scott had teamed up with Mike and Alan Green, owners of Green Construction Services. With very similar business philosophy’s, we wanted to bring the knowledge of the cleaning and restoring side of Regal together with the restoring and building/remodelingside of GreenConstruction. This formed a true “One stop shop”. From the point of frantically standing in water, to the smile on your face from your home being put back together, we are with you every step of the way.
