About Us

Independence Cleaning Services was founded in 2012 by Ed Long of Independence Medical Services, LLC. His vision was to create a boutique-style cleaning service that could cater to any challenge thrown our way. Jessica Haggard started at the company during Flip Week of 2012, helping out with college housing clean-outs and scrubbing ovens and refrigerators. She then moved on to become a regular crew member with the ICS team and stayed in that position for about a year. In 2013, Jessica was promoted to Operations Assistant and worked with Ed and the upper management team to grow the company which eventually led to a 2nd full time crew. In late 2017, Jessica and her husband Russell agreed to work towards the goal of acquiring ICS and creating their own LLC. Russell left his full-time job at Walmart in July of 2017 to take a leap of faith into ICS’s future. After months of working and waiting, Jessica and Russell closed on the business in December of 2017 and Independence Cleaning Services, LLC was born.

Jessica and Russell met in 2007 and married in 2012. They live in Athens, Georgia with their lab-mix, Marlee. In their spare time, they both enjoy traveling, music, and spending time together and with their families.

Our mission is to provide the best cleaning quality and the best customer service at a fair price to our clients. We also provide a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee to each assignment we complete. We also strive to be very family oriented, as family is very important in everything you do.
