MSPCA was founded in 1974 by Dick Bernson, a hard-working pioneer in cleaning and a man known for his generosity and willingness to help others. Back then, Dick saw the need for a way to bring cleaners together, so they could help one another provide quality services with integrity and professionalism. So, he invited a few cleaners, along with some suppliers, to find out how to make his vision a reality. Bob Pakrul recalls Dick inviting him to an early meeting, eating bologna sandwiches with his wife, hoping to become as successful as Dick was. At that meeting Dick became a mentor and friend, always willing to help with any question he had or teach a new cleaning technique. Since then, MSPCA has expanded to include cleaners and restorers, but its mission and code of ethics remain the same. 

Our meetings are a time to share and learn from one another, to help local owners better manage their businesses and grow personally and professionally. MSPCA is not backed by one supplier, so our support of any techniques or products comes from personal success only. We are cleaners helping cleaners.
