Kevin Nelson 


Kevin Nelson and his wife, Donna, founded Nelson Clean Care in 1978. Kevin is a member of the MCRA (Previously the AWCC) and has served on the board of directors. Kevin also served on the Board of Directors for the Milwaukee Chapter of the IAQA. Currently his focus is on growth and development of NCC for the future.

His true passion is to help customers as they face unexpected crisis in their homes and businesses. Continual education regarding new procedures and equipment keeps his knowledge in the field fresh and up to date.

He is spending more time in the field and in training our Technicians as Bob has taken over more of the daily administration and Estimating that Kevin used to do. His heart has always been with our customers (not in the office at a desk) and you will find him excited about being a "Project Manager/Field Technician" again.

He holds 17 certifications with the IICRC  # 209 , including the following certifications:

  • Applied Microbial Remediation Specialist
  • Applied Structural Drying
  • Master Water Restorer 
  • Master Textile Cleaner
  • Master Fire & Smoke Restorer 
  • Carpet Cleaning
  • Upholstery & Fabric Cleaning

Kevin has also received specialized training in Applied Thermography and is an EPA certified - Lead Safe Renovator

Donna has been involved in Nelson Clean Care, Inc from the beginning, sometimes full-time, sometimes part-time depending on needs of the family, homeschooling years, and other demands on her time.

Currently, Donna oversees sales and marketing, revenue planning and forecasting, human resources, personnel development, social media, and various other areas.

Some of the most enjoyable moments of the day happen when a long term customer calls and she actually remembers their names and a catchup conversation is held as their job is being scheduled. Recently one of our customers mentioned to the technician in their home that they have been a customer since Kevin & Donna had their first child "that was quite a while ago, how old is that baby today?" , our technician answered...36+ years!! Our customer was astounded and our technician was very surprised to meet a customer who had been calling us for her carpet and upholstery cleaning needs that long. 

  • No certifications held, anything technical has been learned on the job as Kevin's sidekick through the years!

Shane returned to our Full-time position in February of 2015. He has the drive and passion to exceed our customers expectations and is especially known for researching troublesome spots or concerns that don't have an immediate solution.

Our customers have been thrilled with the results of that research. If you are scheduled with Shane, you won't be disappointed!!

Both "old" and "new" faces at Nelson Clean Care, Inc. 

Many of our long-time customers will recognize Kevin, Donna and Tony as the "faces" of Nelson Clean Care, Inc. But, over the past 10 years, we have added some new, and as you can see, "younger" faces. Those of us who have been with Nelson Clean Care for more years than we can even believe, are VERY glad to have the younger staff with us. With younger people comes energy, enthusiasm, a love for new technology and thirst for learning.

We welcome all of these attributes, and are very grateful for those who have chosen to join our team. We believe that our experience and desire to serve makes us different from our competitors. We fully appreciate the relationships we are building with our customers.

As a team, our staff desires to earn the respect and trust of those who invite us into their homes. We live in the communities our customers live in, we shop at the same stores, attend the same sporting events, perhaps even become friends outside of the work relationship.

Respect and trust can never be taken for granted.
