Hey there! My name is Ali Alzurufi, and I’m the founder of Tidy Upped, a cleaning business that I started when I was just 19 years old. Growing up as a first generation American with immigrant parents in Chicago was tough, especially after my dad passed away when I was just 5 years old. My mother raised me and my three siblings all on her own, and we moved around a lot during my childhood.
But I was determined to succeed, and during high school and college, I tried my hand at several business ventures. Although they didn’t pan out, I learned a lot from those experiences. It wasn’t until I started Tidy Upped in 2020 that things really took off. From the ground up, I built the company into a reputable brand that provides stable jobs and a positive work environment for my employees.
But that’s not all. I’m also passionate about making a positive impact in the lives of my clients by freeing up their time so they can focus on the things they love most. And I’m committed to giving back to my community by donating free house cleaning to cancer patients and supporting other small, family-owned businesses. Tidy Upped is more than just a business to me – it’s a way to make a difference in the world, and I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished so far.
