Luke Smallwood, owner of Fiber Masters Carpet Cleaners, grew up in the carpet cleaning business. His uncle, Pete Johnson, was in the business and Smallwood would accompany him to many of his jobs.

“He trained me to do it,” said Smallwood. “I worked for a couple of other companies, learning the logistics of it, and when I turned 25 I decided it was time to open my own company.”

That was in 2008. Smallwood said he’s had six successful years.

Cleaning carpets isn’t the only thing Smallwood’s company does.

“We can take care of water damage, remodel houses, paint houses, fire and water restoration, put in new carpet, redo your hardwood floors -- pretty much everything that needs to be done to a house, we can do,” he said.

Smallwood has one full-time and four part-time employees.

“We’ve had six successful years,” said Smallwood. “Everybody has been good to us. We’ve really enjoyed the public. Most of our customers are repeat customers. We stayed in the yellow pages for about three years, then came out of that. We’ve been working by word of mouth ever since.”

He and his wife, the former Jacqueline Green, a dispatcher for the Weaver Police Department, live in Pleasant Valley. They have two sons. Luke Jr., is 5, and Hunter Cole is 2. The family attends Williams Baptist Church.

Smallwood is the son of Brenda and Brick Bannister of Weaver and William Smallwood of Madison Heights, Mich.

He is a graduate of Weaver High School.

“Fiber Masters is a name you can trust,” said Smallwood. “Give us a call at 256-782-3512 or 256-689-0607.”
