What is Team Clean?
Team Clean takes a holistic approach to residential and commercial cleaning. Using only environmentally conscious, non toxic, biodegradable products and methods, our “Teamsters” (as we like to call them) will leave your home/studio/work space sparkling clean. We offer a spring-cleaning like approach to our clients, going above and beyond what you can do on your own. Under, over, between, behind, above: it’s all included! Team Clean is fully insured and licensed.
Team Clean also brings all their own products and tools! We use a wide variety of natural cleaning product lines such as Seventh Generation, Sodasan, Bon Ami, Vermont Soap, Ecover, and Citra-Solv. We even make a few special products ourselves! We get creative with ordinary stuff to like vinegar, baking soda and essential oils. Team Clean is also zero waste! The Teamsters use microfiber cloths instead of paper towels. Our goal is to get everyone’s home as clean as possible and be 100% natural and biodegradable in the process. Making your home chemical free and keeping it safe for grown-ups, babies and pets!
Who is Team Clean?
Candace Mills has been in the green cleaning business since 2002. As the founder of Memphis, TN’s first green cleaning company, 2 Chicks and a Broom, Mills honed her green chops whilst figuring out the how’s and why’s before there were any other green cleaning businesses on the scene. She was inspired by the pals that joined her business, touring musicians and artists of all mediums. Those folks with the flexibility to pursue their calling whilst also knowing their job was there when they returned from the tour or project made all the difference! A healthy work environment is the making of a happy cleaner.
“The reason we are green is that we don’t want to add any more toxicity to the environment. We are actually removing toxins and being minimalistic in the products we use in the space”- Candace Mills.
Candace sold Two Chicks and a Broom in 2007 and moved to NYC in 2008. After selling the business she thought her cleaning business days were fading into the past. Not so fast! Her calling was clear and Team Clean NYC was created in 2010, in a blowup pool in a backyard in Greenpoint BK, naturally. She missed having a business that nurtured its clients as well as offered a healthy environment for workers. And Team Clean NYC does just that. The Teamsters are artists, musicians and other creative people who crave flexibility and have a knack for cleaning. Team Clean NYC is bringing artful sustainability to the world of housekeeping.
Here comes 2018 and Candace now operates branches of Team Clean in Nashville, TN as well as her hometown, Memphis, TN. Hooray! Bringing it all back full circle to her TN roots feels really good. NYC and TN, lucky you.
