Who We Are

CEI Services, formerly known as Cleaning Experts, Inc., is a fully integrated facilities maintenance company. Our clients range from fully established organizations to emerging small businesses. The company began in Anniston, Alabama in February 2007 when CEO Kanada Simmons decided to further expand the foundational janitorial servicing he’d began with his father, Larry Simmons, CEO of Simmons & Simmons Janitorial. A few years later, Kanada envisioned a “one stop shop”, a company his customers could use to service their building both inside and out. Thus, Cleaning Experts expanded and encompassed a variety of additional services to include plumbing, concrete, construction, painting, and more! Soon after, a vision arose to offer services on the State and Federal level. In August 2016, CEI became Disadvantage Business Enterprises (DBE) certified and began projects with the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT). Some of our notable clients include Kronospan, Homeland Security, Jacksonville State University, Corp of Engineers, Road and Rail, and Bridgewater. In 2018, our CEO was nominated for the Goldman Sachs award. The company’s name changed from Cleaning Experts Inc. to CEI Services in 2019 to reflect the multiple services that are offered. CEI Services continue to look forward to a future full of innovation and possibilities. No matter your need, we got you covered!
