It’s a special Meet a Dad edition sponsored by our the lovely Mary Gregory Gifford of Gifford Law.This week we’re introducing you to good friend of CNSM, Brian Torres of BTR Wash Pros. Brian founded BTR Wash Pros back in 2019 as a mobile detail service and has since expanded to house washing, roof cleaning, window cleaning, pressure washing and holiday lights. Suffice it to say he gets the job done, with permission from his four year old boss, sweet Yadi, who really calls the shots. Welcome, Brian!
Hi Brian! Please introduce yourself.
My name is Brian Torres. I’m born and raised in the city’s Logan Square/Hermosa neighborhood.
You’re a dad, tell us about your son.
I have an amazing four year old son Yadiel, aka Yadi, aka my boss. He’s sweet, loving, moody, sarcastic and a daddy’s boy all at the same time. To say he keeps me on my toes would be an understatement. He loves sports, school, hanging with his cousins and spending time with his grandparents.
What would be surprised to know about you?
I’ve gone skydiving twice. I hate scary movies. I’ll eat any chocolate.
Please introduce BTR Wash Pros. When was it established? Why and how did you create it? What services do you offer?
BTR started in September 2019 as a Mobile Car Detailing Company with the goal of giving mom and dads their weekend back. I was selling Real Estate in 2019 and felt it wasn’t really something I enjoyed. I’ve always been a manual labor and car guy, so detailing gave me both. I think the older kid telling the younger siblings “no more eating in mom’s car” lets me know we did good.
In 2020 we added house washing, roof cleaning, window cleaning, pressure washing and holiday lights to the services offered. I tell people we do everything on the outside of a home minus the grass but I got a guy for that 🙂
Who would you like to thank for the success of BTR?
All the customers that continue to refer BTR to their friends, family and anyone that asked about getting something detailed.
Who are your business mentors? Feel free to give any shout outs!

What’s next for BTR?
The focus is going to be growing the fleet so we can help more people. If we can keep a mom or dad out the car wash line, off the roof, ladder or pressure washer wand on a saturday or sunday so they can go have a date or hang with the kids without worrying about the car or house needing to be cleaned then we’re doing the right thing.
