The story of Team Clean is a story about Donna Allie: college graduate, single mom, founder of Team Clean, Inc., and, today, she is a community benefactor, employer, and mentor to more than seven hundred employees.

Allie formed Team Clean and began to respond to those newspaper ads by hiring women and sending them off in pairs to clean homes, thus establishing the burgeoning company’s team approach to cleaning. Two years later, in 1985, she received her first commercial contract with the Upper Main Line YMCA and concentrated on cleaning offices under one thousand square feet. Within ten years, the company was named one of Philadelphia’s 100 Fastest-Growing Small Businesses by the Wharton Small Business Development Center.

The company Allie founded on a shoestring now offers cleaning solutions to clients across five core market segments including government, education, industry, commercial offices, and sports and entertainment venues. With a market reach that extends well beyond the city limits of Philadelphia, where it is based, Team Clean is the largest, minority-owned business in the region and it employs more than seven hundred employees who are composed of a highly diverse group of people.

Team Clean is pioneering advances in its chemical equipment and cleaning methods (including Green Seal certified chemicals, where specified), so we can continuously improve the service solutions provided to our customers. Specialists from our approved vendors and suppliers periodically review techniques, materials, and equipment with our management staff to improve standards and increase productivity.

This process involves product research, training application, field testing, and an aggressive program with manufacturers and distributors to ensure we have the most up-to-date information on the latest technological advancements affecting our industry.
