Because of the fact that one of the golden rules of ethics and ethical living is caring, we have made it our model to care deeply about whom it is you have invited into you home. Along with a traditional application and interview screening process, we have made it extremely important to secure Background Checks which guarantees to indicate any questionable or circumstantial situations where integrity in an individual is in question.
We do not take it lightly that you have chosen us to become a part of your private home-life. Our team is essentially hand-selected by their character and desired intention to work for a company which prides itself on being both intercultural and socially aware.

Willow Strey - Green Team Cleaner
Operator. Willow loves cats. While attending college Willow's primary goal right now is to reach a level of expertise in astrophysics and mechanical engineering that allows her to continue studying without attending university. She plan to save money until that happens (probably around 7 years from now) so that she can find myself in independent research for a year or two. Robots are a more focused interest of hers, as they could be the future of medicine and potentially even human anatomy. Astrophysics is just really damn cool.
Aside from that, Willow says she has always enjoyed music, art, and video games, and one of her current side projects involve designing one of those with a friend of her. It is enough of a passion for me that if he bails, she will learn hopefully how to program so she can carry out this goal. Video games have been a pivotal point for many aspects of my childhood, and she wishes to create something than can do the same for children or young adults in the future.
As for dislikes... Willow despise politics because there are very few people who discuss them with the will or capability to change their view in the face of a compelling argument. Sports are very uninteresting to me so I'm not a fan of those either. "I also have a weird dislike for asparagus-- I will not eat it in any shape or form and it repulses me past what is normal for a food to do."
Overall, "I was raised to always work hard, to carry myself with integrity, and to always keep learning.” We enjoy having Willow as a part of our Green Team Cleaning, Team.

Tukwila Zimmerman Jones - Founder & Owner / 11 years Professional Cleaning Experience
In 2004, Tukwila received her B.F.A. in Dance from Cornish College of the Arts. She immediately put her training to use, teaching at Woodinville Dance Academy and dancing with two local modern dance companies. Driven by the schedule and income of a young artist and a strong desire to learn proper domestic cleaning techniques, Tukwila successfully sought training and employment from April Lane's Home cleaning in 2006.
Tukwila truly cares about the well-being of each and every client. She opened Green Team Cleaning to offer a level of comfort that goes above and beyond the cleaning industry's standard norm while maintaining the professional standards of larger companies. Tukwila declares that she started this business because growing up in home where things were in disarray and hoarding was a norm, change and organization becomes a must. She says, "right down to noting the names of your family pets, our team's aim is to provide you support and kindness." Tukwila is also still happily active in the Northwest's dance community and has felt blessed to be able to turn most of Green Team's management and operations over to her outstanding team.
"I opened this business with a wish to help those out, where time runs out, and all anyone can think is that they could use a helping hand. I personally look forward to brightening your day, your home, your space, your environment, to bring you a sense of peace and maybe even some joy..." -Tukwila
