Bill Hoerr – Founder of Hoerr Carpet Cleaning

Bill is a master cleaner in carpets, furniture, tile, and is certified in water restoration and structural drying. With 31 years’ experience in carpet cleaning and water restoration, he has devoted himself to fulfilling his motto with his customers: “Be honest. Give every customer a great carpet cleaning experience, exceeding expectations.”

After five years working as a cleaning technician for a friend’s company, then eleven more years as the owner of a multiple-truck carpet cleaning operation, Bill moved to the Peoria area in 2000, and founded Hoerr Carpet Cleaning and Restoration. In the next ten years the company went from a one man operation, to five men and five trucks. Bill credits the growth in the company to hard work, fair, honest pricing, and a determination to give the customer more than they expected or asked for.

Because of these high standards and customer satisfaction, Hoerr Carpet Cleaning and Water Restoration has realized growth every year for the past 15 years in Peoria.
