About Us

We’ve been helping Cincinnati companies come clean for more than
80 years now, how about letting us do your dirty work?

Founded in 1926 as a painting contractor doing commercial and residential work,
we soon found ourselves growing steadily by offering services to an expanding
corporate client base. In the late 1970’s we assumed the operation of a cleaning
company for one of our major clients and overnight doubled the size of our operation.
Again in the early 1980’s we expanded into custom shop spray-painting; commercial
office furniture painting; and custom cabinetry finishes.

Our current services include all of the above as well as epoxy flooring systems,
commercial wall covering, water damage drywall abatement and repair work.

Our longevity and expertise in these industries has earned us the distinction
of "Preferred Supplier” by several Tri-State companies.

We provide service in the Tri-State region of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana including
Cincinnati, Dayton, Northern Kentucky, Middletown, West Chester and
surrounding communities.
