Our mission is to provide a customized cleaning experience to improve lives by achieving the cleanliness expectations of our community of clients.
Following the entrepreneur spirit of her father, Awesome Cleaning was founded in 2007 by CEO, Deboraha Parker. Deboraha served as a member of facility management for Naperville’s Dist. 204. During her tenure at Dist. 204, Deboraha served Waubonsie Valley and Neuqua Valley High Schools working for Aramark and Servicemaster. While working with Aramark/Servicemaster Deboraha learned the effectiveness of various solutions and grew a passion for making people happy through her cleaning. At Neuqua Valley Deboraha participated in S.T.E.P.S (Supported Training Experiences Post-Secondary). S.T.E.P.S is a program geared to coach students with disabilities on the protocols and procedures of cleaning and janitorial services.
Deboraha’s passion for cleaning and love for helping others birthed Awesome Cleaning and Janitorial Services in 2007. As a testament to Deboraha’s passion for cleaning, some of her initial clients were administrators of Neuqua Valley. Awesome has serviced the upscale communities of White Eagle of Shorewood, The Fields of Shorewood, Neufairfield in Joliet, and Prairie Trail in Plainfield. Awesome believes in helping its customers live a clean and peaceful life. With this mission in mind, Awesome reserves a small sector of its clientele for the under privileged. Although under privileged, Awesome gives their undivided attention to every customer regardless of economic status to meet their needs. Awesome believes their work isn’t “Awesome” until is has met or exceeded the expectations of their client. Awesome lives by the creed written by William A. Foster “Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention; sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”
In 2019 the company was officially incorporated becoming Awesome Cleaning, LLC. Awesome is a family owned and operated business. Supporting Deboraha in the operations of Awesome are her sons Kevin and Christopher Parker. Kevin serves in the capacity of Chief Operating Officer and Christopher serves as Chief Financial Officer. Awesome is directed by its Board of Directors comprised of Deboraha, her sons Kevin and Chris and their wives Brandey and Tecara.
Deboraha is the mother 6 children and grandmother to 10 wonderful grandchildren. Deboraha loves to volunteer her time at her local church, Joshua Arms, a senior citizen assisted living facility, and multiple nursing homes in the Chicagoland area.
