Sarah Tookleen, founder and owner, has a degree in History from Alfred University. Sarah spent three of her four years in college working for a Sanitation Management cleaning service. Sanitation Management was both a residential and commercial cleaning service. Sarah worked on a cleaning crew with two other individuals. By the end of Sarah’s third year she was promoted to crew manager and was responsible for coordinating the jobs for that crew, as well as all customer interactions. After college, Sarah moved from New York to Seattle where she was employed as a Manager of Immaculate Cleanception, a residential house cleaning service. Sarah managed the 23 person organization for two years. Her responsibilities included all facets of management including, hiring, training, customer service, inventory control, and purchasing. It was her experience at Immaculate Cleanception that provided Sarah with the skills and confidence to open up her own company. She decided to move Cleanly, an upscale suburb of Seattle with her husband and start her own company.
