About Advanced Cleaning Systems
By Jeff Yamaoka, Owner

In 1989, my father purchased his first business – Advanced Cleaning Systems. As his only son, I was "encouraged" to work with him often on weekends. I learned to develop the skills needed to perform such work as office cleaning, floor stripping and waxing, carpet cleaning, etc. While I didn’t always enjoy it, I truly learned the value of hard work and customer service at a young age. I realized that I had to "earn" my money, not just get an allowance from my parents.
By the year 2000, I decided to further my skills by working for a reputable carpet cleaning company. My goal to become the operations manager was accomplished after one year, gaining invaluable experience along the way.
In 2005 my father retired, giving me the opportunity of a lifetime. I was blessed and fortunate to continue a family business that my father successfully operated for over 15 years. I hope to make him proud!
