As a family-owned and operated business, our company success is closely tied to our family history.
Ted Haas and two fraternity brothers start Merchants Building Maintenance with the goal of building a thriving service-based business requiring little startup capital. Original operations took place from a garage in Azusa, CA.
Ted’s partners move on to other pursuits. Ted buys them out for $1 each and becomes the sole owner of Merchants. His commitment to consistency continues to garner positive word-of-mouth and referrals from existing clients.
Ted’s son, David, and daughter Krista, join the team full time, having spent their childhood summers working in the company’s offices or on job sites.
Merchants grows to include offices across seven states, solidifying our position as one of the largest commercial cleaning companies in the region.
Members of the third generation of the Haas family join the team, furthering our legacy as a family owned and operated business.
With 17 regional field offices employing 6,000+ team members across seven states, we’re proud to continue to provide flexible, customer-focused service to organizations who prioritize quality and a job well done.
To excel in all that we do for our customers, employees, suppliers, and the communities we serve by continuously improving the quality and value of our services.
Choosing the right commercial cleaning company means the difference between worry-free service and time-consuming, costly runaround. Here are some of the ways we do things differently.
Consistency is built into our operational model. Our dedicated Quality Assurance group conducts independent inspections to ensure our performance never wavers.
We stay in control of the service we provide. We self-perform all of our services in-house and do not subcontract or franchise.
Every one of our 6,000+ team members is important to us. We’re proud to treat everyone on our staff like family.
We are a certified woman-owned business by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) and a certified Women’s Business Enterprise by the Supplier Clearinghouse.
Our straightforward quotation process leaves no guesswork. You know what you’re getting from the start.
Our commitment to the environment is real. We use Green Seal Products, environmentally-friendly tools, and green practices in our own organization.
We believe in supporting the communities where we do business. We recognize the importance of education and its power to shape lives. Our founder, Ted Haas, put himself through UCLA by cleaning buildings at night and used this experience to build a thriving business. We started the Haas Family Trust to strengthen the educational trajectories of children of our staff members, offering scholarships to junior-college-bound students. To date, we have issued over $250,000 in scholarships.
