At a City Council meeting in 1991, the City of Charlotte presented Tony with an award in appreciation of his community service for protecting it's citizens while off duty. Tony was injured while capturing an armed robber at 221 North Tryon St on March 20th, 1991.
The Charlotte Police Department presented Tony with the Meritorious Award & the Charlotte Fire Department awarded him the Distinguished Action Award.
Bernson's Rug Spa in Durham, NC & Carpet Care of the Carolinas in Raleigh, NC are where Tony got his first experience in caring for textiles. Both companies were owned by members of Tony's family. What was a summer job became full-time from 1984 to 1985. Tony started his own business in 1985 to specialize in fiber protection & specialty cleaning of fine fabrics & rugs. Tony was always active in the volunteer fire department & rescue squad. In 1987, Tony became a career firefighter with the City of Charlotte. He became a Certified Master Textile Technician in 1994. He also earned his journeyman designation in Fire & Water Restoration.
Tony retired from the City of Charlotte in 2012 as a Fire Captain, after 25 years of service. He began serving the community as a volunteer firefighter in 1984 while working with the family's textile service business based out of Raleigh, NC.

"I learned the importance of attention to detail working summers with a family owned business. I saw the importance of superior workmanship and attention to detail. That's why when I started my own business in 1985, my commitment was to offer uncompromised quality for those who demand the very best."
This certification (now Master Textile Technician) takes years of training, experience & dedication to achieve. Many technicians will never reach this status that Tony did over 20 years ago.
