Company History

Bowerman Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning was founded over 45 years ago by Michael Bowerman Sr. He began his work in the industry during the early 1970’s when he successfully operated a carpet cleaning business and managed a dry cleaning store in New Rochelle, NY. Michael used a truck mounted, steam cleaning system and was among the first to provide this service to the area. His success with carpet cleaning led him to establish his own company, Bowerman Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning. Not only did he specialize in caring for carpets, upholstery and drapery, he also began cleaning and caring for specialty area rugs. He then expanded services to include emergency water extraction. His hard work, determination and attention to customer satisfaction ensured our family’s respected reputation in the cleaning industry.


Michael Sr. established a loyal following of customers, most of whom still use our services today. Michael Jr. began working with his father part-time, learning about the family business first hand. For several years, both father and son worked together to solidify our reputation as a quality company providing exemplary work and ideal customer service. After earning his MBA from Iona College, Michael Jr. became sole owner of Bowerman Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning. Thus he realized not only his own dream, but the dream of his father to pass down the family business. Michael Jr. has further expanded the family business and established Bowerman Restoration, a full service disaster restoration company. He owns and operates both companies giving him an edge above the rest. Michael continues to maintain the three core business values that Bowerman Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning was founded on: Customer Satisfaction, Quality Work, and Integrity. We dedicate ourselves to providing outstanding service and superb results to our customers.
