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.”

TC praise!

Wow!  What a review.  I could cry.  I just might!  Thank you, happy client, for taking the time to write such kind words.  This makes my heart sing.

"I want to start off by saying that I have very high standards for house cleaning; my husband would say "perfectionistic". I have worked with many housekeepers over the years….individuals recommended by friends, housekeepers from various agencies… and have never quite been satisfied. I had become resigned to never finding the right person. Then I discovered Team Clean NYC!
My husband and I have had two homes for some time; our home in NYC is our retirement home, to which we are now transitioning. I had become very dissatisfied by my last housekeeper in NYC when she failed to be helpful in the process of cleanup after a renovation of our apartment. I started looking on the web for leads to another housekeeper, and came across the Team Clean website. I loved their website, and decided to give them I try. I am totally thrilled with Team Clean!
Team Clean NYC owner Candace Mills hand picked a perfect match for me, someone whom I came quickly to trust both with the care of my home and the protection of all those things that mattered so much to me. I was able to meet Stephen in advance, and am able to communicate with easily by email. And he has done a PERFECT job, every time that he has come to clean. And while Stephen is away for the summer, Candace has made another match for me. My new teamster will get all the benefit of what Stephen has learned, and allow for the continuity of personalized service. 
Team Clean NYC is an incredibly well run business, with clear and simple rules and easy access to conversation as needed. And it offers the best of both worlds..both personalized service as well as cover for when your teamster can’t be available. And everyone I have talked with or met has been a lovely person. My son’s experience with Team Clean NYC has been the same. Hats off to Team Clean! They have a loyal client admirer in me.”
