Pristine Clean was founded in 2009 after owner Ashley Jackrel's disappointment with other cleaning companies in the Gainesville area. Throughout her first eight years as a resident of Gainesville she tried several cleaning services and personal maids and to her dismay, none met her expectations. She felt that if she was having so many issues with these companies she was sure other home and business owners were too; and so Pristine Clean was born.
Since the very beginnings of the founding of Pristine Clean, it has been important that with everything it does, it considers the impact on the environment. Protecting natural resources and minimizing harmful effects to our habitat are why the cleaners that they use are non-toxic, biodegradable, and safe for use around children and pets. Whenever possible they buy materials that are made from recycled products and are themselves recyclable. Now those choices have expanded into transportation as well. Mrs. Jackrel states that “By adding these smart cars, we’re taking older, larger and ultimately less efficient vehicles off the road. These little monsters are getting 35-38 miles per gallon in town!”
It’s hard to miss the little pink cars driving around town, and sightings are ever-more frequent with the tripling of the line. Pristine Clean hopes one day to add electric smart cars to make the impact even greater. “We’re going to celebrate our 5th birthday this year, and we’ve grown so much since our founding. Our team has worked very hard and with all of this continued expansion, we’ll keep adding more staff and smart cars. Gainesville has really supported us and shown that our service is a needed one. If we can switch over to full electric in the future, that will make an even greater difference”, states Jackrel.
