History of Lighthouse Window Cleaning
Twelve years ago John broke away from the corporate world to begin on the journey and dream of owning his own business. It was a challenging time, as he had five children spanning from first grade to High School. John’s wife Teresa, had just gone back to school to become a nurse. “Looking back, it seems like mission impossible.” Today, Lighthouse Window Cleaning, Inc. has grown to provide jobs for twenty team members. Lighthouse Window Cleaning, Inc. serves the greater Rocklin, Roseville, Auburn and Sacramento areas providing window cleaning, gutter cleaning, solar panel cleaning, pressure washing and dryer vent cleaning.
Lighthouse Window Cleaning, Inc. embraces the philosophy of attracting and retaining the best team members. John’s children, Andrew, Peter, Joseph, Grace and Michaela have all been involved in the business and have worked to earn money for their education. Lighthouse Window Cleaning, Inc. recruits locally and hires mostly from customer referrals, friends and family. As summer approaches, we look for local high school seniors or college students to help us through the summer months. Lighthouse Window Cleaning, Inc. is a great summer job for students.

“Chad came out yesterday to do my windows. He was very friendly, went right to work and did an amazing job. He took his time to make sure that every window was spotless, the tracks and screens cleaned and even took time out to do all the large mirrors in the house. After the job was completed, he wanted me to walk around with him to make sure I approved before he left. Amazing job Chad, thank you! I would recommend Lighthouse Window Cleaning to anyone who is looking to get their windows done.”

Why is the business named “Lighthouse?” Because John approaches life in a positive way: ”Each encounter you have throughout your day, you have an opportunity to make someone's day brighter!” John fosters this perspective with his team members and clients. John appreciates the symbol of the lighthouse as it represents strength and guidance. “We all need God's strength and guidance as we traverse life’s journey!”
