Adrian, Michigan – ServiceMaster by the Border announced an owner change of the full-service cleaning business, located in Adrian, Michigan.

Tony Lanzilotti, Operations Manager and Co-Owner of the local franchise, along with Doug Welko, purchased the franchise from the previous owners, Craig and Tanya White.

Both Lanzilotti and Welko have previous franchise ownership experience, and built other successful local businesses while supporting community growth and vision. The ServiceMaster franchise will continue to support community campaigns such as the local Toys for Tots drive, Chamber of Commerce program sponsorship, and BNI membership.

“We are looking forward to continuing the commitment of providing exceptional service to customers in the territory covered by ServiceMaster by the Border,” explained Lanzilotti. The franchise serves Southeastern Michigan communities in Lenawee County, Hillsdale County, and parts of Monroe County, by providing janitorial and cleaning services to both residential and commercial customers.

The franchise began more than 30 years ago as a residential cleaning franchise, and expanded into commercial cleaning services shortly after.

The ServiceMaster team of professional cleaners complete standardized corporate training for proper cleaning techniques. Customer service protocol is measured and tracked, and each employee understands and supports the foundational values of the company.

“For decades, the local ServiceMaster franchise has helped families in the community with residential carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, and specialty cleaning jobs such as seasonal deep cleaning, move-out or move-in cleaning. There are also hundreds of janitorial cleaning service contracts throughout the tri-county service area, plus additional commercial cleaning jobs that occur as needed,” Lanzilotti said.

Specialists who perform janitorial services through ServiceMaster by the Border are trained in green cleaning options. These environmentally-friendly cleaning products are often requested by customers who suffer from allergies. Team members who provide medical office cleaning are specially trained in OSHA requirements and EPA standards for cleaning contaminated work environments.

“People trust the ServiceMaster name, and recognize the ServiceMaster logo,” explained Lanzilotti. “The franchise ownership will continue to uphold that trust within the community.” A complete list of cleaning services is available on the website,
