The History of ComfoClean
Upon first opening our doors in June 2002, ComfoClean, then operating under the name Ignatovich General Building Service (Ignatovich GBS) partnered with Regional Building Maintenance Company (RBMC) based out of Redmond, WA, where we began performing commercial office cleaning and janitorial services.
Two years later in 2004, we decided to turn our focus toward carpet and upholstery cleaning, at which point ComfoClean’s founder completed the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification’s (IICRC) full training program and received his official certificate. Soon thereafter, we began our commitment to using only top of the line equipment when we purchased our first piece of equipment, the “MYTEE - 3005” Portable Carpet Cleaning Extractor.
ComfoClean Changes Focus
Because of our commitment to quality cleaning services and unparalleled customer service, our carpet cleaning requests soon began exceeding our janitorial orders. As a result, we decided to change our name in 2004, which is when ComfoClean came into being. Since that time, we’ve invested well over $100,000 in our cleaning equipment, which represents some of the most powerful and advanced technology in the industry. We also have a well-earned reputation for working with some of the safest chemicals on the market, including a Robust Green and Organic Line of products.
A Well-Earned Reputation
Speaking of reputation: ComfoClean’s intense focus on customer satisfaction has led to our services being trusted by household names such as Verizon, YMCA, Red Robin, US Bank, and Fred Meyer, just to name a few. We’re also proud to service a wide spectrum of commercial buildings, including churches and childcare facilities, in addition to more than 5,000 satisfied residential customers.
Ever intent on pushing the envelope, we’ve also expanded our services to include carpet, upholstery, rug, air duct, and hard surfaces cleaning, as well as services for RVs, automobiles, watercraft, pet odor removal, anti-allergen treatments, and even hardwood refinishing.
ComfoClean: Today & Tomorrow
Because ComfoClean is a very dynamic company and we’re always striving to grow as professionals and to expand our business reach, we’re currently in the process of obtaining a trademark for our new company name, “ComfoClean.” However, this doesn’t mean that we won’t continue providing the best possible service to our customers, or that we won’t continue staying on top of the latest technological advancements in cleaning equipment and chemicals. In fact, quite the opposite.
This is because ComfoClean is built on principles, the cornerstones of which are:
- Quality – From continuing education to using only the most effective equipment and practices, everything we do speaks “quality.”
- Safety – Certified safe and organic chemicals, in addition to fully licensed, insured, and bonded workers.
- Confidentiality & Honesty – You’ll never have to worry about hidden fees or sharing of your personal information.
- Our Guarantees – We guarantee our work, as well as your satisfaction.

Into the future, ComfoClean will continue staying up-to-date on the latest certifications and technologies within the cleaning industry, while providing comfort to each and every client we serve, along with the happiness that comes along with it. After all, we want to build a company where our children would be proud to work.
More About ComfoClean’s Owner
Yuriy Ignatovich, along with his wife and son, immigrated to the United States from Eastern Europe (Ukraine) in February 2002. Because he and his family initially faced a great number of obstacles, including language barriers, cultural differences, and a huge variety of worldviews and ideologies, Yuriy thought that he might have landed on another planet; one that looked a lot like Heaven.
However, one of Yuriy’s favorite sayings is, “The road is surmounted by the one who walks on it,” so he harnessed his enthusiasm about pursuing his American dream and quickly got to work starting his business. And over time, he found that he and his family grew a great deal, and soon became familiar, even comfortable, in this new world.
In Life & in Business, Hard Work Pays Off
Today, Yuriy and his family are extremely happy to have built a growing business from the ground up, in addition to a large, tightly knit family. He and his wife are now raising four children. The USA has now truly become their home.
Into the future, Yuriy and ComfoClean will continue working diligently on achieving their ever-present goal, which is to bring the gift of comfort into people’s homes.
