About Bob’s Janitorial Service

We all like a good story. A solid history. I can provide some of both but only to a point. The rest will have to be learned, eventually. What I can tell you – in 1975 Bob Brown began Bob’s Janitorial Service. 

What I’ve been told was Bob Brown was a school teacher who needed to make ends meet and learned a new trade during the summers when school wasn’t in session. I’ve heard that he worked around construction sites, initially for free, cleaning up after the workers. He discovered a niché and garnered more customers, ones who would pay him. Eventually, this would lead to additional work and down the road, he would leave teaching in order to run his now full-time job.

Bob would develop a reputation for the quality of service, his work ethic, his dependability. When other services, such as floor care (stripping & waxing) or carpet cleaning, we’re introduced, I couldn’t tell you. Bob is still around but not in this area.
