What began as 24 individual companies is now Clearly Amazing.
Our company was formed by bringing together locally based residential and commercial exterior cleaning and holiday lighting companies from across the country. Today, what were once individual entities is now a strong, unified team uniquely positioned to meet the challenging and ever-changing exterior cleaning and holiday lighting needs of the markets we serve.
Our Heritage Story
Since our founding in 2013, Clearly Amazing has been building upon the trusted heritage of these companies, while enhancing and strengthening our service quality, delivery and offerings to best meet the needs of our customers. We proudly recognize and honor them.
While this timeline is not comprehensive, it highlights our larger acquisitions and the significant additions to our team.
Our journey began in the summer of 2013 with an app that allowed customers to order interior house cleaning. We aligned with teams of cleaners in and around the San Diego, California, high-rise and vacation-home communities. This business model did not give us the quality control and consistent service measures we demand for our customers, so we divested the house cleaning division in 2015. Through this, we learned of the real need for holiday light installation, and began offering this service in 2014. This business has grown every year since inception.
Clearly Amazing Window Cleaning and New Outlook Cleaning Services
In the summer of 2014, we migrated north to Portland, Oregon, and diversified our service mix to include window cleaning and gutter cleaning with the acquisition of Clearly Amazing and New Outlook. We also shifted our business to employing technicians and providing the equipment necessary to perform our services, which added value for our customers and quality and safety control for our company.
Birds Beware Window Cleaning
We continued to grow our window and gutter cleaning business with the acquisition of Birds Beware in Fenton, Michigan, in the spring of 2015. While Birds Beware focused on large commercial accounts and some residential customers, we worked to broaden our residential offerings and customer base.
20/20 Window Cleaning
We moved further east with the acquisition of 20/20 Window Cleaning in the summer of 2015. 20/20 had a 30-year history of providing seasonal homeowners with expert window cleaning services and a select number of post-construction and janitorial cleaning services in the Cape Cod, Massachusetts market. We expanded the service offerings to include gutter cleaning, and broadened our reach to include areas off-Cape, including Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Larry Miller, Inc.
In the winter of 2017, we moved south and acquired Larry Miller, Inc., Northern Virginia’s premier window cleaning and pressure washing provider. Larry Miller serviced homeowners and real estate brokers in and around suburban Virginia. We worked to expand the service area and offer additional services such as gutter cleaning and holiday light installation.
In the fall of 2017, we returned to our roots and expanded our Portland business with the acquisition of All-Clean! SoftWash. We offered additional services and expanded the territory by beginning service to the Vancouver, Washington, area.
Coastline Window Cleaning
We expanded our reach to Southwest Florida with the acquisition of Coastline in January 2018. Servicing Fort Myers and Naples, Coastline introduced us to flat-roof work and the ability to serve our Michigan and Massachusetts “snowbird” customers.
St. Mary’s Services
In the winter of 2018, we expanded across the river and grew our Northwest business to include Vancouver, Washington, with the acquisition of St. Mary’s Services. St. Mary’s offered window cleaning and holiday light installation.
In the spring of 2018, we moved north and acquired Element Softwash, a commercial provider of soft wash services in metro Seattle. We expanded to offer our full suite of services.
Cincinnati Pressure Cleaning
We acquired Cincinnati Pressure Cleaning in the summer of 2018 with an eye toward offering all of our services. Cincinnati now offers our full menu of exterior cleaning and holiday lighting services.
Simply Pristine Services
We strengthened our services offered in southwest Florida with the acquisition of Simply Pristine Services in the fall of 2019. We were pleased to expand the service offerings to their customer base of property managers, homeowners associations, and condo owners associations.
Our journey thus far has allowed us to continually assess consumer needs and expand and refine our offerings to best meet those needs. Today, we offer a full complement of exterior cleaning and holiday lighting services using the most advanced equipment and techniques. Our highly experienced and rigorously trained professionals deliver on our promise of complete customer satisfaction.
With the goal of continuing our growth and becoming an even greater resource for those areas we serve, we look forward to further developing our heritage story.
