How We Got Started: Story of Our Beginnings

Our company was founded in the Baltimore-Washington metro area in 1977 as one of the first whole house cleaning services in the region. In 1989, Steve Robinson and Tim Evankovich purchased the company and broadened its scope to serve even more clients.


Franchising began in 1996 and has grown to include
more than 215 locations across North America.


This quality commitment and reputation for excellent service attracted outside investors. In 2014, the company announced a majority acquisition by PNC Riverarch Capital. This exciting change didn't mean a complete overhaul: The management team did not change and Steve continued on in his leadership position with the Board of Directors. We are excited to announce a new era of growth for both new and existing units under the guidance of PNC.
