From Humble Beginnings

ServiceMaster was founded in 1929 as a moth-proofing company by Marion E. Wade, a former minor league baseball player who believed that employees and customers should always be treated with dignity and respect.

Incorporated in 1947, it expanded to offer carpet cleaning in 1952, establishing one of America's first franchise businesses. In 1962, it entered the healthcare arena and was a pioneer in third-party outsourcing. In 1980, ServiceMaster expanded its range of commercial services to professional cleaning of educational facilities.

ServiceMaster Clean still operates under many of the same tenets of Marion Wade's original purpose: to deliver exceptional service and quality to customers.
