Dirty exteriors beware, cleaning company cuts ribbon in Brookhaven

BROOKHAVEN — New business owners John and Brittany Wrenn spoke about their mobile cleaning business for commercial and residential customers at the Brookhaven Chamber of Commerce Friday afternoon. The couple then took a giant pair of scissors and cut the ribbon on a new chapter in their lives. 

John said their cleaning business is called Cleansing Stream Exterior Cleaning Solutions and the name was inspired by his faith. He said Jesus is the ultimate cleansing stream as he recited John 3:16. 

The Wrenns are originally from north Mississippi with John growing up in Holly Springs and Brittany growing up in Ripley. John said they came to Wilkinson County on a church plant and fell in love with the area and rural nature of Southwest Mississippi.

He said they currently live in Gloster but intend to move to Brookhaven or Lincoln County soon. Exterior cleaning is an art and John has invested in the equipment.

His trailer features a 300 gallon water tank, hoses, pumps and chemical controls to make his job easier. It is not a hardware store set up. John said he had to drive 10 hours to pick up the custom built trailer. 

“Everyone needs cleaning. Especially the clean you wish you could do but don’t have the time or equipment. I can do it in a fraction of the time with all of the right equipment,” John said. “The business started when a friend of mine was talking about some good low cost startups businesses and I threw out power washing. I got into looking into it and it is a thing and can be a serious operation. I saw how awesome it really was and it appealed to my need to be outdoors and work hands on.” 

John said as a Christian he decided to pray about the business idea. He had a peace of mind after prayer and decided he would start the business. 

The business appeals to his need for independence and he liked the idea he was providing a service to the community. Brookhaven Chamber of Commerce program director Katie Nations and Visit Brookhaven director Jillian Richeri said they would love to see the Brookhaven post office downtown get a good cleaning.

John and Brittany are currently the only employees for the company but they could hire other people if the business grows. 

“We are excited. I help put out all the stuff and it is just fun,” Brittany said. “We are doing a service for the community and giving back. It is much needed. If it is dirty we will clean it.” 

The ribbon cutting officially kicks off the business. Anyone interested in the Wrenns services can visit Cleansing Stream on Facebook or their website cleansingstreamcleaning.com.
