This philosophy has propelled the company onto a successful growth track.

Clean World USA was founded in September of 1986 as Carpet Care Specialists, Inc., a specialized carpet cleaning company. In 1990, CCS expanded into the janitorial services market and began servicing commercial and industrial facilities.
In an effort to satisfy increasing demand, the Temp Clean division was established in 1994, allowing the company to venture into the temporary help services industry. The company’s rapid growth brought on the establishment of the International Cleaning and Training Institute in 1999.
To gain a stronger position in the marketplace and effectively promote it’s diverse offering, this new entity was restructured and renamed Clean World USA LLC in 2001.
Our goal is to become the industry leader in providing janitorial and green-cleaning services. To offer quality, worry-free service to our valued stakeholders – our customers, employees, suppliers and the communities in which we do business. We will accomplish this in a cost-effective manner utilizing a trained, capable and professional staff.
