President's Corner

We enter 2021 marking a major milestone in our corporate history: Mister Kleen celebrates 45 years in business. We take pride in our reputation as a leading provider of contract cleaning services to Commercial and High Security facilities since my parents, Ernie Sr. and Mary Ann Clark, started Mister Kleen in 1976 out of our family home.

Over the last four and a half decades, we have met and overcome significant challenges. Through it all, we have remained committed to our quest for excellence and achieving success by providing the highest levels of customer service. Today the company is led by the second generation of Clarks (myself and my sister Dianna), with the third generation (Christy and Chad) also involved in the day-to-day management.

If you’d like to know more about how our family grew Mister Kleen into the successful company it is today, please visit Our History on our website. You’ll find that we are no strangers to pivoting our business in anticipation of our clients’ needs. Early on we added specialty and restoration services, and we later shifted our core focus to servicing High Security facilities following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

The last year has been another for the record books, with COVID-19 posing the greatest risk to human health since the 1918 flu pandemic. I am so very proud of our Kleen Team, who have stepped up on the front lines as COVID-19 Heroes from the start. We developed our Enhanced Kleen program to keep our nation’s essential infrastructure operational and to pave the way for commercial enterprise to safely resume. We move into 2021 continuing this essential work, which often happens behind the scenes and after hours.

I am grateful for the loyalty and dedication of our team, and extremely appreciative of our clients for their continued support. We could not have grown into the successful company we are today without you all. I look forward to Mister Kleen continuing to serve our clients for another 45 years and beyond.

I wish you all the best in 2021!

Ernie Clark, Jr., CBSE
