WHO THEY ARE:
Owned and operated by husband and wife team Jay and Tara Herrin, Tidy Green, Inc. is a successful two-year-old, environmentally friendly cleaning company serving the greater Shenandoah Valley. Tidy Green is a full-service, family-owned business providing all their own non-toxic, biodegradable equipment and products.
Having adopted a “green” philosophy of living while residing in Seattle, Washington, the Herrins relocated to Staunton to raise their children closer to family and in a small, closeknit community. Wanting to provide a valuable service as well as play a role in the economic and environmental sustainability of the Staunton and Shenandoah Valley communities, they launched Tidy Green, Inc.
Tidy Green was the first business to receive funding through the Staunton Creative Community Fund’s Green Loan Fund; this funding is set aside for businesses that exemplify a “green” entrepreneurial philosophy and make stewardship of the earth a number one priority. Tidy Green will use these funds to facilitate the expansion of their ever-growing business.
Already serving a diverse clientele, Tidy Green has earned a reputation for excellence and a commitment to providing environmentally friendly, non-toxic, child and pet-safe cleaning services. In a world where declining water and air quality has started having measurable impacts on human health, even within the relative safety of our own homes, Tidy Green takes the convenience of a reliable and detail-oriented cleaning service and kicks it up a notch with their devotion to community and environmental stewardship.
Known for their “personal touch,” Tidy Green, as a family-centered business, breaks away from the tendency of corporate cleaning companies to make one kind of service fit everyone. Rather, Tidy Green prides itself on meeting the varying and individual needs of each client so that every visit leaves a fully satisfied customer.
HOW DID YOU GET HERE?
Over the past two years, the Herrins have already seen the way this business model has successfully served them in the Valley. Says Tara, “We have run Tidy Green now two years by continually researching and building as we go…we have a friendly, professional, and approachable staff that offers extreme attention to detail visit after visit.” Customers of Tidy Green will find the staff willing to cater to their individual needs and desires for home or business cleaning with competitive prices compared to other conventional cleaning services in the area. They are always happy to offer consultations and estimates specifically designed for each customer.
Any community member of the greater Shenandoah Valley looking for more information about Tidy Green’s services will need only to go as far as any of Tidy Green’s current customers; one of the Herrins’ most successful marketing strategies has been one they didn’t have to pay for, the word-of-mouth recommendation of one satisfied customer after another.
