ServiceMaster® was founded in 1929 as a mothproofing 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 entered the education market and expanded its range of commercial services.

Merry Maids® was incorporated in 1979 in Omaha, Nebraska, and became part of the ServiceMaster Family of Brands in 1988. Today, our more than 1,100 independently owned and operated franchises clean more than 120,000 homes in the United States and Canada alone.

Merry Maids still operates under many of the same tenets of Marion Wade’s original purpose: to deliver exceptional service and quality to customers.
