PHOENIX (KSAZ) -

Most of us will never fly on a private jet or even notice the 35 million dollar jets flying in and out of Scottsdale airport.

Carolyn Berryman spends all day inside private jets. Berryman owns a successful jet detailing company called Time for Sale, cleaning corporate jets for WalMart and Petsmart her clients are celebrities, successful businessmen, and sports team owners.

Carolyn graduated from ASU and started off as a personal assistant until a pilot changed her life. "He asked one day after about 10 to 12 years of knowing him. "You ever clean an aircraft before?" I said no. "Would you like to?" I said sure," said Berryman.

"One aircraft became three, became five, became 10, and it was all referrals" said Berryman.

Carolyn and her staff now clean 4 luxury jets a day she says the main thing they notice is the fingerprints. In order to keep these jets clean Carolyn says she can be a little obsessive compulsive. "Alphabetizing the snacks making sure all the labels are all one way," she said.

Her clients are incredibly wealthy and she won't talk about them but simply said, "what happens on the ramp so to speak stays on the ramp,".

Berryman did share some stories about celebrites that aren't her clients. "That is Brett Michaels the rocker. Poison. He charters a bit and one day I finally had enough nerve to ask him for his autograph and I couldn't find anything else for him to autograph so I lifted my foot and he said sure ill sign your shoe,".

"We did a Gulfstream that was a chartered aircraft for Justin Bieber and I found a lot of hotel key cards and gummy bears seriously? I did," said Berryman.

Carolyn also had a memory from the time she cleaned M.C. Hammer's plane, "M.C. Hammer had a carpet shampooed on a chartered aircraft that stopped here."

Carolyn's referrals come from clients and also come from the pilots who are hired to fly these jets. It may seem like a lot of fun and it is but it's also hard work.

During the summer she works when it's 115 out and even hotter inside the jet as the engines are not running so there's no air conditioning. "You feel like your in a steam bath I always laugh and go ah, there goes a spa day," she said.

Still she's incredibly grateful for business she's built. "You never take it for granted it's quite a lifestyle I'm very fortunate to have been able to get into this business, really," said Berryman.

Carolyn says with TMZ, celebrities are pretty cautious and don't leave anything too crazy on the jets.
