Tim and Steve

Company History

Founded in 1977, The Cleaning Authority was one of the first team-cleaning, whole house cleaning concepts in the Baltimore-Washington metro area. The demand for this type of service, coupled with an outstanding reputation for quality, caught the attention of Steve Robinson and Tim Evankovich. In June of 1989, Steve and Tim purchased the cleaning company and have continued their commitment to quality home cleaning for thousands of families across the United States and Canada. The success of The Cleaning Authority and its franchisees attracted the attention of outside investors, leading to a majority acquisition by PNC Riverarch Capital in August 2014. While retaining the existing management team and with Steve’s leadership on The Cleaning Authority’s Board of Directors, PNC is positioning The Cleaning Authority for an exciting period of company growth for new and existing units.

Our mission is to provide you and your loved ones with a superior green home cleaning service that protects your family and preserves the planet at the same time. We use Green Seal Certified® house-cleaning products, along with U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services - preferred HEPA vacuums and microfiber dusting cloths that help safeguard your family from toxic airborne pollutants.

Franchising of The Cleaning Authority got its start in 1996 and today the green house cleaning company has over 185 franchises in the U.S. and Canada. Learn more about Franchise Opportunities with The Cleaning Authority today.
