the nitpicky cleaner
I started The Nitpicky Cleaner in November of 2018, here in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After years of cleaning professionally and out of a love for making people happy, I decided to go off on my own. I have a natural talent for organizing and a love cleaning & design. Cleaning can be a daunting task for most but for me its fun!!
We help reduce the stress in our clients lives by taking away a task that needs to be done, allowing you more time with your family. Because my main goal is not just the beautification of your home, but to make you happy as well, that means we will do whatever it takes to get there.
I spend a lot of time researching the latest trends in all things natural cleaning and trying out different combinations of handmade all natural cleaners to find the perfect solution for my clients. I make our exclusive Nitpicky products only out of the safest, natural & effective ingredients I can find. I spend even more time researching + pinteresting the latest trends in organization so I can take my services to the next level. I admit that does make me sound a bit like a cleaning nerd, but I am proud of it and where it got me!
I frequently check in with my clients to see if there is anything we can do to serve them better or if there are any odd jobs or extra tasks that they would like to add on. We will do anything we can (within reason) to make your life easier because that is my ultimate goal.
After my dad's tragic suicide in April of 2018, all I want to do is feel like I'm helping people in some way. This is my way of lightening the load. I know I can't save the world, one clean at a time but I sure wish I could! I can, however, help people live healthier, happier, chemical free lives + reduce stress while make things look pretty in the process. That's a win in my book!
We can only transform our lives if we sincerely want to. Small changes transform our lives.
Things I love
Without my family and their support, I would not be where I am today. Family is a huge part of who I am and why + how I run my business. I truly love my employees like family and view our relationship that way. (Click on meet the crew to meet them!) I also view our clients like family! You are inviting us into your home and trusting us to be an asset to the household just as you would with a family member. That amount of trust is such an honor to us.
My own family has been here to support me every step of the way. My husband is my rock and at the core of my business. In my husband's "spare" time outside of his demanding job, he keeps things running smoothly with his business knowledge, help with finances, playing assistant cleaner whenever needed, help with making products and washing + folding the Norwex each and every night so I can focus on the most important aspect of my business...you!

Why choose us?
TNC IS A BRAND YOU CAN TRUST!
When you choose TNC, you are choosing to put your trust in us and that means everything to me! You are supporting a very small, local, woman owned business. You are investing in someone in your very community. You are trusting us to care for your home, your possessions and ultimately your family. We respect that trust and have done a number of things to show our clients that we take that trust seriously. We have become accredited by the BBB, we are bonded + insured and we hand make all of our cleaning supplies (besides Norwex used on project cleans) so we all know EXACTLY what's in them. We are here to serve you and that means we need to take these actions to protect our clients.
We have just become accredited by the Better Business Bureau, yay! As an accredited Milwaukee based business, we follow the BBB's vision to build trust, advertise honestly, tell the truth, be transparent, honor promises, be responsive, safeguard privacy and embody integrity. We feel our visions are very aligned and hope you feel the same as well.
To protect our clients and ourselves, we are a licensed, bonded + insured business. This means you are protected if anyone was to get hurt in your home, if anything were to be broken or if there is damage to the property itself. Many small companies or independent maids (often found on Craigslist, Thumbtack and Facebook marketplace) aren't even legitimate licensed businesses, let alone have the measures of protection that are needed. We take our commitment to serving you seriously and make sure we have the coverage needed in an unfortunate event.
Many household cleaning products, even some "green" lines, contain carcinogenic ingredients that can have serious implications on your health. The scary thing is, we don't fully understand the effects on our health yet because there are no regulations on household cleaners. Plus, many labels are misleading and don't include all the synthetic chemicals used. That is why we had to know for ourselves that the products we were using were not only eco-friendly but safe and effective as well. That is why we ONLY offer safe and eco-friendly cleaning services.
We know what an honor it is to have gained your trust and commitment to our services. We are blessed to have had you find us, out of all the other companies who offer "all natural cleaning" and promise that dedication to you is our number one driving factor in this business.
