Hey, you can help us spread the word! Share this site!

On pace to gross over $2 million in revenue in 2011, Cleanslate is a growing business, whose footprint across this city is far and wide.  Customers are drawn to Cleanslate because it excels at the things most business owners strive to see in its vendors: quality, consistency, and execution.  Where else can you find a service provider that radically changes the face of a whole neighborhood (since we were founded, we have collected over 3,200 tons of trash and recyclables from our streetscapes), and can make a ton of passersby smile in the process?

But don't take our word for it.  Check out what our customers have to say:

“Cleanslate is a remarkable vendor and the services they provide are greatly appreciated.  The overall goal of empowering others is a vital element that all organizations should integrate and that’s why the South Shore Chamber continues to support Cleanslate.” 

South Shore Chamber, Inc.

“Cleanslate’s constant delivery has changed the face of our business district.  Our streets are cleaner than ever before and the community has taken notice!  Since the Cleanslate crew has taken over, our office has been flooded with compliments.”  

Little Village Chamber of Commerce

“Cleanslate has on numerous occasions put in extra effort in our area.  For example, Cleanslate has (in the last year alone) provided additional graffiti wipes to our office, sampled new products for graffiti removal at our request, paid special attention to neighborhood areas such as the newly dedicated Jan Metzger Court, and provided responsive sidewalk snow removal during Chicago’s third largest blizzard in recorded history (February 2, 2011).  I can say with confidence, working with Cleanslate to beautify our area is both rewarding and a pleasure.”

WPB (SSA #33, Wicker Park, Bucktown)

“…we are greatly impressed with Cleanslate’s management staff- Brady Gott, Logan Quan, Tekorah Martin and Lisa Kidd.  Not only are they professional and a pleasure to work with, their enthusiastic embrace of Cleanslate’s mission is infectious.  We continue to look forward to working with Cleanslate to beautify our neighborhood and are happy to play a role in helping to transform the lives of its interns.”
