Gain Insight From An Experienced Industry Pro

Over 10 years of experience in the cut-throat cleaning industry is¬†shared. From in-depth reviews of cleaning equipment to handling difficult customers, it all gets exposed here. I have over a decade of experience in the cleaning industry–both residential and commercial. In fact, janitorial work put me through Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and later allowed me to purchase a home in the Silicon Valley. Having since moved to Las Vegas to be closer to family, I am on somewhat of a restart; taking what I learned from the last ten years and being more strategic in my decision making in my new venture. In this blog, I’ll share with you my ups, downs, highs and lows as well as my thoughts on the hundreds of pieces of equipment and other products I’ve used in my company¬†over the years. My goal is to enrich your knowledge of cleaning, its importance, its history and future, and raise awareness of harmful practices. So no matter if you are an experienced industry expert, a beginner interested in starting your own cleaning business, or simply here for the entertainment, I hope you find something of interest.
