About Us

We’re two guys, and we love to clean. Our careers and our life experiences have made us experts on keeping homes and businesses spick-and-span. Together we have three decades of cleaning expertise.

If you want to enjoy pristine hardwood, spotless carpet, and tile so immaculate you can eat off it, then you’re in the right place. We post frequent reviews of the best cleaning products.

We select those products based on our current interests, web trends, and suggestions from our readers. Then if you should purchase a product that we’ve linked to, we earn a small percentage. This keeps our site up and running.

How do we know if a product is worth the investment? We test as many as we can (because that’s the best part of the job). But we also rely on other cleaning connoisseurs, professional review sites, and feedback from owners. We strive to compile all the facts in one place so you can make an informed decision.

Get to know our team below.

Lawrence Young

Lawrence is the owner of CivilClean and one of its primary contributors. He has a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management with an emphasis in Facilities Management from Weber State University. Currently, he works for Intermountain Health Care keeping their properties in top condition across Utah and Idaho. His years of experience and attention to detail have helped lower maintenance costs and extend the lifetime of several facilities.

Although he enjoys his day job, Lawrence’s real love is cleaning. He waxes poetic about his two-year stint as a student custodian on campus. And as a self-professed neat freak, he loves to browse the cleaning aisles at the supermarket and discover the latest model vacuums online.

Rob Smith

Rob holds a Bachelor of Science with an emphasis in Community Health from the University of Utah. He was formerly employed by Intermountain Health Care where he met Lawrence Young. His current path has led him to found a cleaning company that specializes in disaster cleanup across the United States.

Like Lawrence, Rob is enthusiastic about the latest cleaning tech. He’s always on the lookout for a faster, more efficient, more pleasant way to make dirt disappear. This tendency helps him maintain a busy home that includes his wife, three children, two dogs, one cat, and a turtle.
