Mine was Dyna-Clean when I started in 1985. I read the verse in the Good Book that said the creator is dynamic in power. After selling my first 5 truck company in 1993 I restarted the year after my non-compete ended. I went with Drynclean for 2 reasons. One is had same ring as my first Company. Second,I focused on getting carpets dry and clean before I left. How about you?

The sun is a dwarf star emblematic of light, life, and heat. Gold has also been emblematic of the sun and is one of the greater treasures to be attained by man. On a third note, most can remember when they were in grade school, receiving a gold star for a job well done on their works, so this title may chime in to the subconscious mind as well as selling itself to the consumer over the competition.

I chose Dallas Maids because I needed a name that would get me business. And back in 2004, the keywords in the domain name (more so then than now) helped the website rise in the rankings. Since "Dallas" and "Maids" were two keywords I wanted to rank for, www.dallasmaids.com was the obvious choice.

It worked because within two weeks we were ranking on the first page of Google. However this was 14 years ago. Today the competition is more sophisticated and ranking so fast would not nearly be as easy.

always find myself struggling on coming up with cool names for my projects. It seems like every name I could humanly perceive is taken by some established brand/startup.

A great resource I've found for coming up with a name is [I am Spamming]

Check it out

I looked in the thesaurus for a synonym to 'Premium' and came up with Select.

From there, SELECTcarpetclean.com domain was available and not registered in PA so then it was born.

I used a business name generator to come up with a few ideas. Then I tweaked the suggestions from there. Just google business name generator. There are quite a few on the internet.

All those years ago it just popped into my head. Dynamik Carpet Cleaning. I do regret not doing something shorter. Think about oxifresh. It's a cool name that is so catchy you don't forget.

I didn't want to go with something like AAA+ Carpet Cleaning since it didnt distinguish me from everyone else. I also thought that a good carpet cleaning is pretty much magic so I went with
Dizzle Dazzle as its catchy, could be a magic work like abra-kadabra and will appeal to millennial mothers who are my target market.

actually my name has evolved over time. When I started in 1981 it was Carpet Specialists because we wanted to be experts at one thing while all the other companies were so diversified. (against the ordinary)

then when we added Water and Fire Damage Repair we changed the name to Clean Care and Restoration.

In 1999 when we downsized to me doing all the work and cleaning just carpet and furniture it is now Paul Ottensmann, LLC.

So I guess for me, the name really has not mattered. we have had the same customers all along.
