The original franchise was founded in the United States in 1978 by Joe and John Lunsford, whose mother, Jean Beason, was an accomplished chemist. They wanted to find a way to extend the life of carpet when the carpet was still in good condition but the appearance was unacceptable due to loss of colouring or the colour of the carpet was no longer what the consumer wanted. After years of research and testing, Ms. Beason came up with a unique on-location dyeing system and after extensive testing, they launched Professional Carpet Systems in Atlanta, Georgia.
Not wanting to keep this concept to himself but realizing that he could not expand it throughout the United States without help, Joe turned to franchise the PCS system in 1982. Today, PCS has expanded its services to include carpet repair, water damage restoration, and carpet replacement in 32 states plus Canada and 7 foreign countries.
