    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.

    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.

    Property E.R. Specialists, a multifaceted Boise-basedproperty preservation and foreclosure company, announces they are now servicing the Treasure Valley area. A company spokesperson says they hope this is the first of many expansions throughout the Northwest.

    “We are excited to be offering our Preservation & Inspection services in the Treasure Valley and Ontario, Oregon areas,” states Dr. Damaris Conrad, CEO/Founder. "Property E.R. Specialists is able to provide property preservation and tenant cleanout service for lenders, loan services, asset managers and REO agents; all of which is long overdue because of the backlog of foreclosure inventory at the national banks.”

    Dr. Conrad continued, “Throughout this area there are many defaulted properties that are left unkempt with abandoned vehicles, growing debris, tall grass and weeds, and broken windows and doors, all of which invite vandalism to the neighborhood and decreases property values. Our team works to bring the property into compliance and assists in maintaining the property as it is being marketed and until it sells.”

    Dr. Conrad says the service they provide is mutually beneficial for all parties. “I can't tell you the number of times local neighbors will come up to our onsite team and thank them profusely for all of their attention to a defaulted property, so it is no longer an eyesore,” she says. “We take great pride and pleasure in the quality of our work as we ready a defaulted property for market. Neighbors and compliance officers often drop by and take notice of the diligent effort of our teams, the changes in the property, and compliment us on the difference our work makes in the neighborhood."

    Besides expanding their coverage area, Property E.R. Specialists is also happy to announce new services. They are now offering carpet cleaning to both residential and commercial clients. The company uses the highly rated Rotovac 360 for all carpet cleaning jobs. The Rotovac is known in the industry for making a significant difference between just "cleaning" a carpet and restoring a carpet to its original luster.

    Property E.R. states that by offering the carpet cleaning services in-house, they can save the banks, asset managers and investors money since they are able to restore most carpets which would otherwise have to be replaced or pulled up, as part of the preservation services. Using just this one service can add value and give the house a “sales-clean” appearance.

    As an experienced full-service property preservation company, Property E.R. Specialists, invites local real estate agents, brokers, asset managers, investors, and property managers located in the Treasure Valley and in need of preservation services or tenant clean-outs, to go to the webpage at and learn more about the affordable services specifically available to the real estate industry, investor, property managers and field service professional.    

    According to one national field service manager, "Most of our property assets are left in deplorable conditions by the former owners. However, our experience with the team at Property ER is their continued commitment to provide timely turn-around services for all of our defaulted properties, and they consistently go beyond our expectations in doing so! They really work hard to turn our defaulted property liabilities into sales-conditioned assets, ready for the real estate market."
