Student Suds was started in 2006 by Jason Ewart while completing his bachelors degree at the University of Alberta…
In his years at university, Jason tackled the summer job market as a franchisee of a national student painting company. Here he won National Manager of the Year both years running, for outperforming in sales, production, and customer satisfaction. It’s also where he discovered his passion for business. Although, it was at a much younger age that it first knocked at his door:
“I never planned to start a business. It kind of chose me. In retrospect, I probably should have went to business school. Instead, I came out with a science degree majoring in Mathematics. If I were to give any advice to someone not sure of their career path, it would be to just do something, anything! It’s about getting involved and finding out where your talents lie. You will soon discover how to best create value in yourself and your community”.
Student Suds Story
Jason saw that there was much room for improvement in the ease and quality of student work. He set out to create a simple system that helps students gain valuable business experience without the risk. In the summer of 2006, Student Suds was born! To customers, we provide exceptional and affordable window cleaning, gutter cleaning, and pressure washing services. And to students, we create fair and rewarding opportunities through good pay, no cost business and work experience. This gives our staff peace of mind and allows them to focus their attention on customer service. We recognize that the success of Student Suds is based on a solid reputation. With this in mind, our goal is to fully satisfy both clients and student staff. Our systems are constantly under revision, to build a strong student brand in an industry where it was once lacking.
2011 saw our first major expansion. After providing seasonal cleaning service to thousands of Edmonton, St Albert, and Sherwood Park homes and businesses, we introduced “Student Suds Housekeeping”. Our professional, reliable and affordable cleaning services, now available year round for inside Edmonton homes. We hire part time students who love to clean, and we fill in the gaps in their school schedule.
In the years following, Student Suds pushed it’s reach further through various marketing efforts and business purchases. We successfully acquired small window cleaning companies in each of 2012, 2014, and 2016. Like the climate of Alberta, that of the window cleaning industry is an ever changing one.
With your help, we look forward to the continued growth of Student Suds. As we grow, Student Suds will continue to provide professional cleaning services to customers and rewarding opportunities to hardworking students.
Student Suds aims to provide exceptional service and deliver what we promise, backed by our 100% satisfaction service guarantee!
We’re A+ Students, look at our grades:
Have used Student Suds for about 5 years. They are a very professional company. Their staff are courteous and friendly. Highly recommend them for window washing. They are prompt and work quickly
We recently had all our windows cleaned on our 2800sq ft home and the exterior of the house pressure washed. Everything was great. I wasn't home during the service but when I got home everything met my expectations and my property was left clean. I would definitely use Student Suds again and recommend them to my friends.
A pleasant experience. The crew arrived early, was very courteous, and did the work very efficiently.
