Nilthon Alvarado – Founder
Born in the small province of Trujillo, Peru, Nilthon immigrated to the United States at the age of 17. Without any formal post-secondary education, he became passionate about reading, particularly entrepreneurial books, which deeply inspired him to start his own business. Finally in 1994, Nilthon embarked on a pioneering journey as he founded CleanTech Building Maintenance Inc.

CleanTech is one of the leading construction clean-up companies in the DC metropolitan area. Known for Nilthon’s principles: building loyal relationships by helping companies showcase clean, finished projects – with a passion for service, quality and attention to detail.

After a courageous battle with lung cancer, Nilthon passed away June 6th, 2013, yet his legacy is vibrantly felt throughout the company among employees and clients alike.

Carmen Alvarado – President and CEO
Also a Peruvian native, Carmen moved to the United States in 1980. She began her professional career working for the World Bank in Washington, D.C. Alongside her husband Nilthon, they founded CleanTech in 1994. What started as a small business quickly grew into a multifaceted corporation where Carmen was able to apply an administrative and organizational outlook as Vice President of the company.

Together as a team, Nilthon and Carmen participated in many national small-business conferences, including Building Service Contractors Association International (BSCAI), in order to propel their company. In 2013, Carmen became CEO and President of CleanTech, following her husband’s footsteps. She is driven by his dedication for service and his compassion for employees. Carmen continues his legacy by exemplifying his work through top-quality service and performance.
