If you're in the market for cleaner streetscapes, look no further.

Our job at Cleanslate is to make your backyard - whether it's the main corridors of Uptown or the restaurants and stores of 26th Street in Little Village - immaculate, so that all your customers (local residents, business owners, and new people you seek to attract to your community) keep coming back.  We customize our suite of services based on your specific needs, we give you one point of contact to streamline communication, and we educate our interns on your specific neighborhood, so they can become ambassadors for your community to all passers-by. 

Our formula is simple – a professional skills ‘boot camp’ to ready individuals for the expectations of your community, intense training on safety and equipment procedures and the importance of recycling, and most importantly, coaching on customer service.  Cleanslate interns are taught to greet 100 residents and community members per day.  They are on a first-name basis with most business owners along the corridor, and quickly become a visible and permanent fixture of safety and service in a neighborhood. 

If you’re interested in learning more about how to obtain the services of Cleanslate, please feel free to contact Tekorah Martin, Office Manager, at (312) 446-3316.
