About Us

Meet the team that has earned Cleaner Guys awards for the best restoration company customer service around!

A Brief History

(We totally understand if you skip this part to see the amazing team who will fix your property 😉)

Cleaner Guys started in 2002 as a carpet cleaning company, and was acquisitioned some years later by our current owner and Director of Business Development, Bob Shupe. 

Bob worked in the home damage restoration industry for years, working for many other companies in the space. He had a vision of running a company of his own that fixed all the problems he saw in the other companies, like dishonestly padding prices, cutting corners in workmanship, and more. And our clients will tell you that he absolutely achieved that dream!

Cleaner Guys has grown into a local favorite because of our vision to be more honest, more affordable, more professional, and more caring than our competition. We invite you to experience all this yourself! Below is the team who will make it happen for you.

Our Mission

Our mission at Cleaner Guys is to provide the best customer service and the best workmanship in Western Washington State. Plain and simple.

It frustrates us — and everyone else — that so many contractors charge too much, do slapdash workmanship, and leave behind messy, unclean work areas. Sadly, most people have just come to expect as much from tradesmen of all kinds. That’s why everyone who deals with us is always so delighted to instead get clean, professional technicians who care about doing the work right, and who treat every clients’ home like it’s their own!

That mission has earned us awards for outstanding customer service, from the biggest restoration company networks in America! And it’s all because we adhere every day to the standard “treat others how you want to be treated.”
