Before the "Tonight Show" first aired, before Disneyland saw it's first visitor, and even before the first Mcdonald's servered it's first hamburger, Cartozian & Sons was long established company in the Puget Sound area. Cartozian's was selling carpeting and area rugs and also specialized in cleaning oriental rugs, upholstery and carpet throughout the Puget Sound area.  With the growth of two divergent sides of the business, the founder, Edward Cartozian found himself concentrating on the sales and installation side of things and decided to make a change.  So, in the 1960's Ed Cartozian sold the cleaning portion of Cartozian's to two of his employees; Bob Hammond & Eugene Knoll. They quietly renamed the cleaning business Hammond Knoll.

In 1987 when Matt O'Haleck purchased the company from a retiring Eugene Knoll; he had the same (well, maybe even more so!) the passion of the Ed and Eugene to provide a unique experience-one with only the highesty level of integrity and service.

With the passing of the torch firmly to the"Hammond Knoll" name, Matt's vision for the company has never altered from providing the highest level service possible.  Hammond knoll treasures our reputation as a amazing place to work, where people continually develop new skills and are allowed to become their best. We never take for granted that Hammond Knoll has become known as the most respected and trusted cleaning service in the Puget Sound area.  78 years and we're still getting better!
