This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.
When Lisa Binggelli opened her business Clean Freak Utah in Logan, she really put her reputation on the line just by the name itself. After 25 years in business management, she noticed a need in Logan for a superior commercial cleaning service for businesses.
She was right, and in her first year alone, her business doubled. Now, four years later, she has 22 business clients and 150 residential clients, including some of Cache Valley's largest companies. Lisa has grown the business to 13 employees with 4 subcontractors. In fact, Clean Freak Utah distinguishes themselves because of their partnership with some of the best carpet and window-cleaning companies.
So, if you want your home or business clean from top to bottom, including windows and carpets, Lisa can set you up with subcontractors and contractors she trusts, plus her top-notch cleaning team at Clean Freak Utah.
Lisa is dedicated in how she handles Clean Freak Utah because if she's down an employee, she jumps in and works side by side. Her team respects her for that, because it shows how there isn't anything she's asking them to do that she hasn't done herself. It also creates loyalty with employees and customers alike.
At Clean Freak Utah, Lisa motivates her team individually, based on the environment they thrive better in, meaning residential or commercial cleaning. She's set up an incentive program where employees get bonuses for any referrals that come from them personally or from times their uniform attracts new business. Most recently she hosted a summer event celebrating their success.
Another best practice for Lisa is her personal 20 hours of training program, so Clean Freak Utah's cleaning excellence is standardized. She provides all the products and uniforms, adding to the consistency of the final product. She also has monthly meetings with her team to keep everybody in the loop with their progress and success.
Clean Freak Utah is doing so well in Logan that Lisa's daughter will be taking over that operation as they grow throughout the Wasatch Front and beyond.
