    WARWICK undefined On Friday, July 12, local officials and members of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce joined Gloria Slaughter and her family for a ribbon-cutting ceremony outside the Chamber’s “Caboose” office on South Street.

    Last year, Slaughter and Nicole Stein opened “2Mops” cleaning service.
    The goal was to create a cleaning company based on honesty, integrity, trust and 100 percent customer satisfaction.
    The company was well received with its free in-home or office consultation that helps people understand expectations and serves to also uncover special house cleaning instructions, frequency of cleanings and whether green cleaning services are right for the client.
    Today, 2 Mops is no longer a partnership but a solely owned company whose vision, stated Slaughter, still remains consistent with its cleaning.

    “The firm,” she said, “has developed cleaning teams who love to clean both residential and commercial properties.”
    Slaughter added that by choosing a weekly, bi-weekly service or a one-time special home cleaning, 2Mops housekeeping services help you take pride in a fresh home cleaning without the hassle of a contract.
    She explained that with a personal touch, deep cleaning system, products and extensive experience, 2Mops will make your home cleaner and healthier than ever before. And keeping these special home cleaning considerations and your budget in mind, the firm will design household cleaning services around you and your family.
    “Our motto,” said Slaughter, “is ‘We just don’t clean your home, we make it sparkle.”

    For additional information about “2Mops” cleaning service,” call 888-376-1021, visit www.2mops.com or e-mail info@2mops.com.

    Tampa, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/28/2013 -- Sick leave within a corporation or office building environment can be a significant expense that a company and business must absorb. Although these are days that are included in the employee benefits, they are still days that detract from a company’s productivity and can even create an exponential affect amongst many.

    A commercial cleaning company that does the extras in order to segregate its waste and germ contamination factors, is one that protects its clients and in the long run, adds to their bottom line. So many cleaning companies overlook the simple issues such as moving from bathroom to bathroom with the same buckets and mops doing harmful damage to the workplace by the “non-elimination” of harmful bacteria that only festers and spreads throughout a workplace.

    The answer and solution to such a quandary is simple yet arduous to execute. The bottom line is that it is easier to not be as sanitary and meticulous because it is in fact more work and more time. State of the art chemicals and cleaning materials are always evolving which good cleaning companies should stay abreast of. Armed with the latest materials however only makes the janitorial services even more valuable to their clients.

    Some machines can actually suck out the dirt and bacteria and hold them until released into a receptacle or area where they are removed from a safe distance that can no longer harm the employees. Additionally, cleaners that enforce training for their employees to learn and study the whys and wherefores in the proper cleaning techniques, makes the supervision of a cleaning company that much easier as well.

    This training approach also instills a confidence in its employees who are entrusted to handle the business’ clients effectively. One or two mishaps become quite noticeable and can sever the janitorial service’s customers.

    MaidPro, one of the largest home cleaning franchises in the U.S. and Canada, smashed the previous World Record by short sheeting 10,236 beds in a single day. The previous record holder, Niles Fulton, held the record for exactly fifteen years by short sheeting 332 beds in his college dormitory on April 1, 1998.

    Short sheeting is a prank commonly performed at camps, boarding schools and military barracks. A bed sheet is untucked at the foot end of the bed and folded toward the head, making it look as if it is two sheets (an undersheet and top sheet). When the victim attempts to enter the bed, they are unable to extend their legs, leaving them in an awkward balled up position.

    MaidPro was able to accomplish this feat by tapping into their large customer base and putting into action a one day Short Sheeting Campaign across all of their locations, short sheeting all customer beds for all cleans performed that day.

    The response from this campaign has been dramatic. MaidPro’s phones have been ringing non-stop from puzzled customers and congratulatory observers. A long-time customer, Anne Hallway, wrote, “Congratulations on such a monumental achievement! I never thought the record could be broken. Please never do that again.”

    MaidPro prides itself on forming close relationships with their clients. “How else could we have gotten away with this,” laughed Mark Kushinsky, MaidPro CEO. “Of course we only did this with clients we really knew and had a great connection with.”

    About MaidPro 
    MaidPro is a Boston-based franchisor of housecleaning services with over 150 offices throughout the U.S and Canada. The company, which began franchising in 1997, takes pride in its strong owner community, cutting-edge technology and creative marketing.

    RJB Properties, Inc., a minority-owned and operated janitorial services provider, announced today that it has reached a settlement with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in EEOC v. RJB Properties, Inc., et al., Case No. 10-cv-2001 (N.D. Ill.), to resolve remaining claims following the district court’s summary judgment ruling last year in RJB’s favor.

    “Our client is very pleased with the settlement,” according to RJB attorney Peter Roeser of the law firmRoeser Bucheit & Graham LLC. “Although RJB was confident that it would ultimately prevail on the few claims that remained following its victory on summary judgment, it was able to settle those claims for a fraction of what the EEOC originally sought before the majority of its claims were dismissed on summary judgment.”

    The EEOC originally filed suit against RJB Properties, Inc. in 2010, accusing the company of committing over 150 purported acts of national origin discrimination, harassment and retaliation against 20 Hispanic and two African-American employees. Among other things, the EEOC alleged that RJB discriminated against janitors by asking them to mop floors, shovel snow, remove garbage, by not providing overtime opportunities, and by not promoting employees for jobs to which they never applied.

    At the close of discovery, RJB moved for summary judgment on the grounds that the complained of actions did not give rise to cognizable claims of employment discrimination, and that there was no evidence to indicate that they were in any way motivated by national origin. In April 2012, the district court issued a ruling rejecting the EEOC’s expansive interpretation of what constitutes employment discrimination under Title VII and finding that there was no evidence on most of the EEOC’s claims to indicate that the various employment actions were motivated by national origin discrimination. Among other things, the court entered judgment in favor of RJB on all of the EEOC’s claims for failure to promote, all of the EEOC’s failure to provide overtime claims, and twelve harassment claims. The court’s 120-page opinion dismissed over 130 acts of purported discrimination.

    RJB Properties was founded in 1985 and is headquartered in Orland Park, Illinois. It is a premier provider of janitorial services and facilities management services. RJB was represented by Peter Roeser, John Bucheit and Darrell Graham of the law firm Roeser Bucheit & Graham LLC, a Chicago-based business litigation firm with a substantial employment law practice.
