“I simply could not help enough people with my small team,” he said. “After looking at several large service providers, I was attracted to the ServiceMaster corporate values, national footprint and business model,” said Paxton. At the same time, ServiceMaster was looking for an opportunity to create a service extension in the hoarding market.
Compulsive hoarding is a disorder characterized by difficulty discarding items that appear to most people to have little or no value. Hoarding was previously considered a subtype of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), but as of May, 2013, hoarding disorder is now included in the “American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders”.

Reason #47: Red Wine… need we say more?
That expensive Pino Noir looks phenomenally better in your wine glass than it does on your white couch. Trust us. If you had a little late night “whoopsie!” just give us a call. We’ll be able to get that wine stain out pronto!
Reason #72: Your in-laws are coming!!!
It’s been a long week. Suzy put gum in little Johnny’s hair, the dog ate your favorite slipper, and you’ve been trying to rein in what little sanity you have left. Then, out of nowhere, your spouse informs you that the in-laws are coming and you need to help clean the house. Don’t worry. Give us a call. We’ll make sure your house looks spectacular.
Reason #29: We cross the yellow line for you.
This reason can be for 2 reasons actually – the first is if your house feels like a disaster zone and you are too overwhelmed to tackle the mess yourself. The second reason is ServiceMaster also specializes in trauma cleanup. With a sense of professionalism and ease, ServiceMaster works to restore any trauma site to its original state. These sites often take place after a severe injury, murder, suicide, or neglected death. ServiceMaster promptly removes all bio-hazardous materials, odors, and any visible evidence that such an event occurred.
Reason #14: The recent rain brought in more DIRT than you think!
Imbedded deep into your beautiful white carpet are muddy, wet footprints. You reach down and touch the slimy residue while internally cursing that over-zealous, mostly soaked golden retriever, who burst into your home just moments before. And, you don’t even own a dog. Give us a call and we’ll be able to remove those mud stains in no time!
Reason #67: The fridge at the office stinks and nobody wants to clean it!
Last week, someone wrapped caution tape around your office’s fridge as a little office prank and it still has yet to be removed. Everyone knows what lies inside: the odor, the assorted mold growths, and the month old food. Whenever you’re in the break room, all of your coworkers avoid eye-contact as the uncleaned fridge looms in the corner. Well, if this is the case, it’s probably time to call ServiceMaster. We’ll take care of your fridge problem stat!

If you’re all too familiar with the unmistakable, slightly pungent, smell of an unclean refrigerator, this blog post might be right up your alley. We’ve all done it before. We’ve left those once-delicious bagels in the back of the fridge too long. Or, we’ve opened a container full of macaroni to find it (sadly) looks greener than our front lawn. But, let’s be honest, cleaning out the fridge is such a task, and it’s extremely time consuming! The fridge can also get a little stinky, depending on how dirty we let it get.
Now, let’s get down to business. How often should we clean out our fridge?
What if I told you, your fridge should be cleaned out once a week? Don’t panic! I’m not talking about scrubbing down every inch. But, I am talking about rotating out old food. In order to do that, you can use a trick that most restaurants use when they store their food. Just label your containers with different colored pieces of duck tape that correspond with the different days of the week.
So, it’s Friday again, and you see that “pink” Friday label in your fridge from last week? Throw it out or take it to work for lunch if its still good. If you get into a good habit of rotating out food, you’ll have less food go to waste.
Keeping your fridge organized.
Another good technique that’ll help keep your fridge clean involves keeping it organized. There’s no need to get out the label gun. Just keep leftover food on the top shelf. Your meats, dairies, and drinks can go on the bottom shelf. Then, fruits and vegetables can be tucked away in the drawers. Any food you’re not planning on cooking for awhile, just package it and freeze it.
Once a month, clean out your fridge and give it a good scrub down.
Remove all of the food, grab an old sponge, and use dish soap or a universal cleaner to scrub down the sides. You can even wash the trays and drawers in your dishwasher. Go through all of the food you removed from the fridge and throw out anything that’s old. Hopefully, you won’t have to throw out much.
Keeping your fridge in top shape isn’t that hard or time consuming. It’s all about getting into the habit of rotating food out old food and cleaning it out every so often. Then, whenever your mother-in-law comes over for dinner, she’ll be less likely to wrinkle her nose and more likely to compliment you on your nice, clean fridge.

After Tuesday night’s unseasonable snow storm, which led to a power outage at our office most of yesterday, I am ready for spring! Playing catch up, I spent a good portion of last night reviewing the day’s emails – I was ready for a mental break. Just then, I stumbled across an email entitled “Spring Cleaning Inside and Out”. I suppose the fact that it referenced Spring Cleaning, or that it described your liver as a Janitor, or maybe the fact that I know the author grabbed my attention. Any which way, this article sparked my interest to read on. I was thinking cleaning inside and out of your house, however, this article adds a new perspective on cleaning – cleaning your body with at Spring Detox. Check out Angela’s blog – http://growinspired.co/blog/connect/blog/2013/04/6-foods-for-a-spring-liver-detox
