Our Company

ServiceMaster Southwest is the leader for Houston, Katy and Fort Bend County for all types of heavy cleaning services, 24 hour fire & water damage mitigation, residential project cleaning, carpet & upholstery cleaning, and much more.  In addition, there is a division, dba ServiceMaster Building Services that specializes in business services including a full line of janitorial services, as well as hard-surfaced floor maintenance.

In 1989, Jerry and Paulette Janak, along with their five children moved to Sugar Land.  Following 25 years in the geophysical industry and the oil bust of the late 1980’s, they decided it was time for a change.  They had listened to “Paul Harvey News” for years and decided to buy a ServiceMaster franchise at his advice.   They believed that doing business with servant’s hearts and having the backing of the ServiceMaster Company would ensure success.

Today Jerry & Paulette are blessed to have daughter Karin involved in the family business as the Office Manager, many top-notch dedicated employees, and their three franchises listed among the top successful ServiceMaster franchises (selected from over 4000 locations in over 39 countries). ServiceMaster SouthWest provides cleaning and 24-hour emergency services to the Greater Houston Metropolitan area.

Jerry and Paulette are industry-certified in all phases of cleaning, pack out and fire & water damage services. And they are proud of their many trained and certified staff members and technicians.

ServiceMaster SouthWest is a training organization for Insurance Continuing Education offering classes in water damage mitigation, mold remediation, smoke and odor and other industry related topics. They host monthly approved continuing education classes for various levels of professional certification. They also team with other industry leaders to provide project management training on related industry topics.
