Meg is one of our newest team members.  She started here at Serafain's late last summer.  She has proven to be a valuable addition to our team bringing both an enthusiasm and cool head to the wash operation.

Damian Harris - Wash technician / Delivery Crew


Damian started with us right around the time we hired Meg, in fact the two are fast friends.  He is like working with rugs almost as much as he loves listening to music.

GeeDubs - The Most Important Fluffy Boy


Raised here at the rug store, GeeDubs loves all our customers and will greet nearly everyone with puppy kisses and cuddles.  Generally here Tuesdays through Fridays, he will take the weekends to visit his "Pop-Pop", Joe Gabel, the former owner of Serafian's.  He recently celebrated his third birthday and is looking forward to many more years working in out store front.
