Scott Gibbens

Founder

My name is Scott Gibbens. I am the founder of Professional Cleaning Group, LLC. I’ve been in the cleaning business for the past 30 years. 

I remember getting started in 1988. I was just a kid out of high school and a family friend in the business was giving me three of her clients. I remember how nervous I felt driving to meet them. Halfway there, I was ready to turn around and go home.

I knew how to clean, I had been doing it since tenth grade. But the thought of being a business owner was intimidating. I finally made it to the buildings. They were small and it was a perfect start.

I wish that I could tell you that it was all riches and glory since then, it wasn’t. It was hard and very painful at times. There were plenty of times when I wanted to quit, but I kept going. Today I have the privilege of sharing my experience and industry knowledge with other small business owners. Thanks for checking out my blog.
