About Us

aboutUs Image

My name is Jeff Manuel, and I have been the owner and operator of Hydra Clean since April 1, 2015. Hydra Clean was founded in May, 1975 by G.E. “Scotty” Scott. Scotty owned Hydra Clean for 8 years until he retired. Dan Ausili became the new owner and operator and continued that role for 32 years until retirement. Hydra Clean was one of the first carpet cleaning companies in central Illinois to use the newly developed truck mounted hot water extraction carpet cleaning system. This new technology revolutionized the carpet cleaning industry. Carpets and furniture could now be thoroughly cleaned in the customer's home with better results and faster drying time. Hence the phrase “Mobile Carpet cleaning plant” was born. I worked for Dan for two years and learned a great deal from him.

Since its founding, Hydra Clean has been known as a quality oriented cleaning company. We strive to achieve total customer satisfaction, and to be the best in our business. Our equipment is always clean and meticulously maintained. The cleaning chemicals that we use are formulated by professionals and thoroughly tested. They are environmentally friendly, and they are safe for your carpets and your home. Our technicians are always well groomed, well trained, courteous, and honest. We are prompt, very careful when we work, and we take the time necessary to achieve the highest level of results. We listen to our customer's needs, and provide solutions to their carpet and upholstery cleaning problems. Advice is always free, and we never try to sell an unneeded service or product to our customers.

Mr. Scott and Mr. Ausili achieved a high standard of excellence when they operated Hydra Clean, and that tradition is carried on today. Continuing education is a priority at Hydra Clean, and we stay abreast of the technological advances being made in the carpet and upholstery cleaning industry. Newly developed carpet fibers and upholstery fabrics need to be cleaned with specially formulated chemicals and cleaning techniques, and we are proud to be able to clean these effectively and safely.

Our customers are truly number one. I look forward to serving you soon!
