New business spotlight - Business is clean and 'green'

October 19, 2008

Name of business: Green Earth Cleaning Company

Owner: Robin L. Stock

Address: 710 Antietam Drive, Hagerstown

Opening date: June 1

Products and services: "We specialize in commercial and post-construction cleaning. We will also accept any residential customer that wants to become 'green' in their home. Our products are 100 percent natural, some organic and some homemade. I experiment from time to time with different herbs, oils, scents, etc., until I find what works best."

Market area: "I am looking to cover the Hagerstown, Frederick and surrounding areas in West Virginia."

How did you get into your business, or what motivated you to start it? "I have a passion for nature in every way, shape and form since I was a child and that passion just continues to grow inside of me. I really love to clean. I know that sounds weird, but I do. It makes me feel good inside to know that in some small way, I have contributed to making another person's day brighter. I finally decided in 2008 to start a completely green cleaning company since the world seemed to be finally catching up with the natural way to go. That is when Green Earth came to life."

Previous business experience: "I worked at IBM in Gaithersburg, Md., as a data entry supervisor and also worked in several restaurants in Lewes and Rehoboth, Del. I went to work for a friend of mine who had his own business painting and that is what started the idea of someday having my own business. So in 2000, I started a cleaning business, which started out as mostly home improvement, pet sitting and house sitting. When I moved to Hagerstown in 2004, I picked up a lot of residential cleaning jobs."

Number of employees: "There is myself, my husband (as needed) and my nephew, who works with me all the time."

Hours: "Days beginning at 7 a.m., evening shift beginning at 5 p.m. and weekends as needed. We are always available, however, to meet customer needs."
