Introduction

Joseph Handlon is the founder of NuWave-Carpet-\Cleaning. He served in the USAF as a medic in the Flight Surgeon's Office 1955-1962.
Upon discharge he went into direct sales (door to door) with Fuller Brush Co.

One snowy day in Ohio he knocked on the door of a Meat Plant Owner and was hired on the spot to be a "Food Plan" salesman. He stayed in this type of business until 1994 selling a variety of products and services, vacuum cleaners, cemetery plots, water conditioners, baby furniture, news stories on plaques over the phone etc.

In 1994 he started working for a carpet cleaning company in Tampa Fl making appointments for the technicians, after four months he started his own Carpet/Upholstery Cleaning Business which has grown each year for the last seven years.
