Service King was started in 2003 by owner Derek McDonald during his 2nd year of college at Southern Utah University. Derek was recruited his freshman year to go to California to knock doors as a salesman for a carpet cleaning company. When he got home he bought a carpet cleaning machine and began cleaning carpets in order to pay for college. When he graduated SUU in 2006 he was faced with a decision; continue growing the company or find a job in the business world. He chose to run with the company. Originally the company name was Steam King and was focused primarily on carpet cleaning. As the company grew and expanded into other services, Steam King was re-named and re-branded to incorporate all of the services offered. Service King became the new name and helped brand the company to what it is now. Derek has taken his education in the field very seriously. After years of education and technical training he achieved the coveted IICRC triple master certification. This is the highest level of education the industry has to offer.
Since its inception 15 years ago, Service King has become one of the market leaders for the cleaning and restoration industry in Southern Utah. Derek is still the President and CEO of the company but now has a General Manager and an Operations Manager. Service King has more than 10 employees and locations in Cedar City and St George. Service King provides services to towns all over Southern Utah including: Cedar City, Enoch, Panguitch, Beaver, Minersville, Enterprise, New Harmony, Kanarraville, Duck Creek, Brian Head, Richfield, St George and the surrounding areas and everywhere in between.
