Luis Montiel, founder of Enviro-Clean (far right)

The United States of America was built on the dreams of countless immigrants from all over the world. The founder of Enviro-Clean is the embodiment of what we know as "The American Dream". Luis Montiel was born and raised in Cananea, Sonora, Mexico. He was just a young boy when his father decided, on a whim, to apply for the naturalization process for him and his family. It was only shortly after that their applications were approved and the family began making their way to the United States. They made a homestead for themselves in Tucson, Arizona and Luis' father built a home for the family from the ground up. Growing up, Luis would be exposed to all kinds of trades, from construction to general automotive mechanics. Hard work was not an unfamiliar concept, in fact, it was a necessity. 

After graduating high school, Luis went on to attend the local community college. Here he would meet the woman that he would later fall in love with and marry. In 1984, Luis and Blanca were wed. A few short years after, in 1988, they welcomed their son into the world. That same year is when Luis decided that he did not agree with the unethical practices of the businesses he had been working for. His entrepreneurial spirit ignited and Enviro-Clean was born. From then on, as the family grew so did Enviro-Clean. The company's reputation became known for its honesty and fairness, as well as, a job well done. In 1994, the family welcomed their second child, a bouncing baby girl. The Montiel family had grown along with the business, and together the family is also what made the business. As the years went on, Luis encouraged his kids to be a part of the company's operations as much as possible. They learned from an early age what it meant to have a strong work ethic and what honesty really entailed. 

Fast forward to today, every member of the family is still very much involved in the company's operations. We pride ourselves in truly being family owned and operated. In an ever-evolving world, we stand true to our values and we're proud to say that our company emanates that. After all, that is the Montiel way.
