“Some people grew up mowing lawns, I grew up cleaning windows!”
I grew up in Rochester, New York and at the age of 16 I took a summer job with Rochester Window Cleaning. As the years passed, I was able to put myself through college (graduated with a B.S. from Michigan State 1993). I cleaned windows right up to graduation.
At that point I stopped cleaning windows and went to work in “the real world.” I sold heavy equipment for ten years. Then in 2003 I experienced a layoff. It was devastating at the time, but proved to be one of the best things that ever happened to me. I found another job right away only to find out I would need to move out of state. I decided, “I’m going back to cleaning windows.” So I started Valley Window Cleaning, Inc. in Appleton. Keeping it a family business, you will see my oldest son Jack out cleaning windows during his summer breaks from college.
