Our Story

History of The Cleaning Authority

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 225 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. Since then, the company has continued to grow and evolve. In 2017, The Cleaning Authority became the flagship brand of Authority Brands, the nation’s leading home services franchisor. Authority Brands is the parent company of The Cleaning Authority and other best-in-class home service franchise brands.
