City Clean, 1972-2022
Celebrating Our 50th Anniversary With Gratitude and Appreciation
This year marks 50 years of business, serving our loyal customers in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area! We’re proud to say that many of our mat rental customers have been with us since the beginning, demonstrating our commitment to providing high-quality service.
Over the last 50 years, we have worked hard to implement eco-friendly practices that enable us to do our part in protecting and preserving the environment, as well as invest in new technologies to improve efficiencies and customer experience.
How It All Began
In 1972, City Clean began as a coin laundry in Hamilton, and in 1980 shifted focus to an industrial laundry in Etobicoke, Ontario. For John Jirgens and brother Andy, an opportunity presented itself when a family member with an industrial laundry company in Germany saw a similar opportunity in Toronto. That same family member provided the capital and equipment needed to start the industrial laundry company with a focus solely on floor mat rentals.
Since then, City Clean has grown in services and size. Offering a large selection of commercial mat and mop options along with restroom supplies, servicing mom and pop shops to large scale organizations across the GTHA.
Providing Safety and Peace of Mind
Today, City Clean helps customers run their businesses safer and more effectively. With mat rentals, mop rentals and restroom supplies, our customers in industries across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area can focus on their daily operations while they rely on us for high quality, reliable service that offers safety and peace of mind.
Investing in new technology has been an important focus to improve our efficiencies and provide a better customer experience. This includes automating the route accounting system and washfloor, adding RFID chips to all mats and mops, and developing technology and repair damaged mats to divert them from landfills, and better monitor our fleet to minimize our environmental impact.
Protecting the Environment with Green Initiatives
City Clean takes pride in protecting the environment by working to minimize our company’s carbon footprint, through energy conservation, laundering products with eco-friendly practices, and investing in technologies for greater efficiency.
Clean and efficient practices at City Clean enable us to do our part in protecting and preserving the environment. We take pride in using eco-friendly, phosphate-free detergents, running trucks that are clean idle certified, offering and utilizing reusable products, such as laundry bags and wet mops, providing paperless transactions, diverting mats from landfills by remanufacturing them to expand their lifespan and recycling older mats at the end of theirs.
Our Team: Dedicated to Serving the Community
We’ve arrived at this milestone thanks to the dedication of our team members, including those who have been with us over 25+ years. All of our employees, past and present, have had a meaningful impact on our success and longevity.
The pandemic over the last couple of years was a challenge for us all, and our team exemplified their hard work and dedication servicing some of the GTHAs most vulnerable communities.
