Assistant Project Manager
Sam Appleby has a special connection to Appleby Cleaning. He’s the nephew of our namesake leader Joe Appleby. Sam is a breath of fresh air, a Penn State Grad and possibly the nicest young man you’ll ever meet. Whether working on Google analytics or polishing marble to a mirror-like finish, Sam has made it his goal to learn everything there is to know about the restoration business. Look for Sam’s name in lights soon—and on the front of our building.

Henry took a brief hiatus from working at Appleby and after some time away he returned better and more proficient than ever. He is highly skilled in both carpet and upholstery restoration. Our customers appreciate how dedicated Henry is to the “Appleby Way” and his ethics are second to none. When not working, you’re likely to find Henry around the Alameda Rock Wall slaying seasonal striped bass and halibut. He loves dogs and even rescued his own from his local adoption center.
John Paul Cleary
Soft Surface Technician
Our customers refer to him as John but we here at Appleby refer to him as JP. You might recognize him from various local ads where he served as a fashion model. He was born and raised in Pleasanton and is heavily involved within his community. Most days after working a full shift, you’re likely to find JP at his favorite gym. His physicalness has been invaluable to us in our full-service area rug in-plant. It isn’t a rare sight to see JP lifting 200 lbs rugs from the floor to his shoulder.
Soft Surface Crew Chief
Devin is an avid gamer whose years of training have helped him develop an eye for the intricacies of carpet and rug restoration. With experience in both our state-of-the-art rug facility and our on-location services, Devin is one of a few techs who can confidently work in both areas. His abilities to focus in on the “details” is what makes Devin special. We like to refer to Devin as the techie who can clean.
