About Christina’s Complete Clean
Christina Garten started cleaning houses while a student at Westfield High School. In order to help her mother boost the family’s finances with jobs here and there like most kids, she hated every minute of it. Things changed several years later, with graduation in the rear-view mirror and a son of her own on the way. Christina founded Christina’s Complete Clean in 2006.
Christina’s business plan was simple: work hard four days a week and bring home enough money to keep bills paid and food on the table. Today the Carmel, IN-based company serves hundreds of residential and commercial clients in central Indiana, providing old-fashioned cleaning services as well as home organization expertise.
Christina began with a single customer, a bucket, a mop, and the lessons learned while assisting her mom: “There are no shortcuts, just elbow grease and meticulous attention to detail.” Suddenly, the how-tos that had rubbed her the wrong way as a teenager had become a business philosophy that helped the company grow.
Promising old-fashioned effort and honest-to-goodness customer service, Christina worked her way up from cleaning one house a day to two, and before long she recruited help to boost that number to three. As business grew, she faced a decision: turn away customers or expand by adding contract employees? The answer was clear; people need jobs just as much as homeowners need a clean house.
From Co-Worker To Employee
One of Christina’s early hires was Jennifer Nelson. Jenn had earned her degree in religion at Ball State University. Jenn quickly became a valuable part of the team, and her natural inclination to plan and organize compliments Christina’s more creative, visionary approach. Jenn’s involvement has allowed the fearless leader to spend more time growing the business and on other passions, including her two children. Christina also enjoys health and fitness — she’s a committed health nut, as well as side photographer and enjoys all things outdoors! Christina and Jenn decided to form a partnership Christina acknowledged her ongoing contributions to the business and its success. Both Jenn and Christina believe service jobs like Christina’s Complete Clean fulfill a higher purpose than most positions on the corporate ladder. Christina’s has been giving clients their Saturday’s back since 2006!
Christina’s Complete Clean also is a proud member of Home Artisans of Indiana, an invitation-only group of craftsmen and home-service providers known for outstanding customer service, quality, and value. Members meet regularly, sharing challenges and success stories in addition to valuable connections.
