Tidy Upped was founded in 2020. I, Ali Alzurufi, started this business when I was 19 years old. I’m from Chicago, and I’m a first generation American born of immigrant parents. My dad passed away when I was 5 years old, and my three siblings and I were raised by a single mother who sacrificed a lot for us. We moved around a lot during my childhood, and I graduated from Allen High school. During high school and college I started multiple business ventures, but they were all learning opportunities and the cleaning business has been the most successful. I started this business from scratch and have grown the company to a reputable brand. I’m making an impact in my employees’ lives by providing them a full time stable job and a positive work environment. I’m making an impact in my client’s lives by freeing up their time to do the things they love most. Also, I’m making an impact in my local community by donating free house cleaning to cancer patients and supporting other small family owned businesses.
