Adam Stroud is the proud owner of Elite Window Cleaning of Ottawa. Adam was born and raised in a small town outside Kingston, ON, and has lived in Westport for four years. He graduated from the Child and Youth Program at St. Lawrence College in Kingston. While attending college, Adam participated in outreach programs, where he was fortunate enough to go to Kenya, Africa, multiple times – once as a student and three times as a volunteer. As part of an advocacy mission, he completed projects such as building homes for families in need, HIV/AIDS clinics, working at orphanages, and even delivering babies at the local clinics. “This was and will always be a life-changing experience and is a large part of who I am today.”
After college, Adam worked as an educational assistant in the local school board for five years and as a direct care worker at St. Lawrence Youth Association. While this was very rewarding, Adam decided he was ready for a change. Elite Window Cleaning provided the perfect opportunity for this.
Elite Window Cleaning of Ottawa provides excellent service to residential and commercial customers. “What sets us apart is our attention to detail, innovative methods, and belief in the importance of building strong relationships with our customers. The way we clean windows really stands out to me, like our motto says: we are Safer, Cleaner, Better – by bringing purified water to the site and using carbon fibre poles that never leave the ground, eliminating the need for ladders.”
Adam loves working in Canada’s Capital and thinks Ottawa is a fantastic area, with beautiful Parliament Hill in the centre. He also appreciates the tremendous local agriculture and world-class museums like the National Gallery of Canada.
Adam is happily married to his wife, Sarah, and together they have a twenty-month-old son named Tate and two bulldogs. He enjoys playing hockey and baseball competitively and going to Ottawa Senators games, even though, at heart, he is a Toronto Maple Leafs fan.
Adam enjoys giving back to the community in his spare time, saying, “I have always had a soft spot for people with special needs.” He volunteers in School to Community classes, doing placements and mentoring the youth. He also volunteers for a special-needs hockey club as a coach. Additionally, he helps sponsor a golf tournament for The Lanark Boys and Girls Club and several other sports teams.
