Our History


We are successful because we hold ourselves to a higher standard and understand that what you really need is a cleaning and maintenance partner that you can rely on.


Lonnie J. Williams started L&J Building Maintenance, LLC as a part-time janitorial business with one small contract in 1986. He grew the business during the 1990s, adding several contracts with Topeka organizations.


In 2000, after working with troubled young adults in a Kansas juvenile correctional facility for 30 years, Lonnie retired to focus on his janitorial business full time. Mr. Williams also began working with a larger janitorial company as a consultant in daily management and training of custodial staff. This experience provided Williams with an enhanced working knowledge of the industry – and helped L&J to grow into a company that operates in five states throughout the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions.


In addition, L&J’s strategic alliances with refuse and recycling companies gave L&J the industry experience and expertise required to service both large- and small-scale waste collection and recycling contracts effectively.


Since the beginning, L&J has conducted business with the highest ethical and moral standards. Our team leads by example and recruits, hires and trains every new employee. Mr. Williams also has been meticulous about cleaning and setting extremely high standards for every building L&J inspects. This systematic, hands-on approach to providing high-quality services and training for performance has made L&J an award-winning commercial cleaning and maintenance company.
