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 – and our planet – 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.

Team Clean also brings all our own products and tools! We use a wide variety of natural cleaning product lines such as Seventh Generation, Common Good, Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day, Barkeeper’s Friend, Ecover, and If You Care.  We even make a few special products ourselves!  We get creative with ordinary stuff too like vinegar, baking soda and lemons. 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?

Although Team Clean is new to the scene, Candace Mills (T.C. co-founder) brings almost a decade of green cleaning experience to the team. As the founder of 2 Chicks and a Broom, Mills cultivated the largest green housekeeping company in Memphis. Currently Mills has partnered with artists J. Penry and Megan Pflug to found Team Clean NYC in 2010.  Our cleaners (or “Teamsters” as we like to call them) are artists, musicians and other creative people who need flexibility in their work schedule. Together Team Clean is bringing artful sustainability to the world of housekeeping.

The Jewish Mother’s Guide to Style: Team Clean

“Passionate and anal compulsive, Team Clean caters to ridding you of your sense of ‘ick’. Toxins of all kinds have no place in a clean environment according to co-owner Candace Mills, who recently explained Team Clean’s process to me in an impromptu visit she made to the Jewcy HQ.  After starting her business only a few weeks ago, Candace had just finished cleaning her first client’s home in New York after seven years of owning and operating Two Chicks and a Broom in Memphis, TN.”

'Round the World Cleaning Post #2!

Happy Wednesday, folks.  The holiday season is upon us.  Around, under, above, below, about us.  All the prepositions!  Hope you’re in the throes of a sweet December.  If not, send me a message and I’ll send you a joke or some story from my childhood that I find ridiculous.  No shame here.  I left it all back home in Memphis, TN and I’m sure my mother gave them away. Anyway- back to the post!  

Nowruz “new day” is the name of the Persian New Year.  It happens around March 21st, whatever day ends up being the first day of spring or Equinox. This is another holiday which begins with cleaning the house from top to bottom.  Not a bad idea any day!  The Nowruz spring cleaning ritual is called Khaneh Takani, literally meaning “shaking the house”.  This celebration represents a time for rebirth, celebration and joy and precedes the new year.  Families traditionally oust dust from every corner and crevice and polish belongings in preparation for returning spirits. It’s a family affair!  I like it.  And I like you because you’re reading my tumblr blog.  

If you have any cleaning traditions I’d love to hear about them!  Feel oh so free to email me at teamcleannyc@gmail.com.  

much love, Candace
