About White Glove Janitorial and Building Services


Since being founded in 1986 by Robin Mugge and Kristine Thiessen, White Glove has built a reputation for providing exemplary service.

White Glove has grown from a small residential cleaning service in Northwest Iowa to become a highly trusted building services company working throughout Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Illinois.

White Glove specializes in services for both commercial and residential properties and maintains a commitment to personalized service plans that prioritize our clients’ needs and budgets.

Our cleaning staff is highly trained, screened, and bonded.  We have firm guidelines and expectations to which all of our employees are held.  You can feel confident that we will deliver outstanding results for your janitorial needs.

White Glove’s quality assurance plan includes regular facility inspections.

White Glove provides COVID cleaning per CDC guidelines using CDC approved hospital grade quaternary disinfectant.

The name White Glove was chosen because we adhere to the tradition of cleanliness represented by the “White Glove Test.”  This test brings to mind an image of a meticulous housekeeper putting on a white glove and running a finger along a counter to see how much dust is accumulated.  It is a method of testing how well the area has been kept clean.  Today it has come to represent the idea of an extreme attention to detail and thoroughness.  We guarantee that our services will pass your mother’s white glove test!
