The Principles Of Our Exceptional Janitorial Services

Our employees are fundamental to the exceptional service we are able to provide you as our valued customer, again and again. Since 1978 we have been focusing on two things:

  1. Investment in client happiness by providing exceptional cleaning services. We are fortunate to have customers that have stayed with us through 41 years, since our start. It’s an immense privilege that we attribute to our care and quality commercial cleaning service, and what has ensured our growth for 41 years.
  2. We care and invest in our employees. We would not be able to provide an exceptional service without our loyal employees. We understand that by investing in the relationship, training, benefits, and helping employees overcome challenges in their private lives, we can build a future together.

Our Story

Universal Janitorial Services was founded in Fairfax VA in 1978 by two hardworking entrepreneurs, creating the proud foundation for excellence in commercial cleaning and disinfection services.

After 12 years in the business, Mark Lineberry took over as President of Universal Janitorial Cleaning in 2011, and Francisco Rivas was given the role of COO after working for the company since 1982.

Our fundamental values are that the cleanliness of your premises is reflecting on you, and the responsibility of delivering on the promise of an exceptionally clean facility is ours.

We are firm believers in long-term and long-lasting client relationships. We value these relationships for a couple of reasons:

1) we always strive to provide 100% with the knowledge that a clean image is everything,

2) if we do a great job, then maybe our customers will send some referrals our way. Most of our business came from the recommendation of others.
