Our Story

Larry and Cathy Snyder started cleaning more and more rugs as part of their Award Carpet Cleaning business and eventually decided to pass on the carpet cleaning to their son Craig and start Magic Rug Cleaners as a full-time venture. After many years of successfully owning and operating Magic, they decided that in 2021 the time was right to find a successor to continue with the cleaning and care of fine rugs in the Coachella Valley. Livingston Panhorst already had a rich history in textile care and trained alongside Larry and Cathy to successfully transition into owning Magic Rug Cleaners.
