Our History


ServiceMaster Clean is proud of having been part of the Greater Lehigh Valley community for more than half a century, in fact, this year marks our 50th Anniversary! Owners, Scott and Freda Witmer, moved their cleaning franchise to Emmaus from Allentown in 1976. From its Emmaus location, ServiceMaster crews are dispatched to help keep community homes and offices clean and healthy inside and outside.

The cleaning business that trades as ServiceMaster Clean/Restore was established in Allentown in 1967 by Scott Witmer’s father, Glenn. It was franchised that same year and transferred to Scott’s ownership in 1975. The business was incorporated in 1989.

The ServiceMaster building in Emmaus was built in 1959, and expanded in 2009. Originally, it served as a bicycle shop, and later as an audio equipment repair center. Its cousin building next door was built a short time after the ServiceMaster building. That building was purchased in 1996 by the Witmer family. Today it houses two tenants and a ServiceMaster warehouse.

At ServiceMaster, specially trained and equipped technicians clean walls, floors, carpets, furniture and drapery. They power wash siding and walks, wash windows, and clean and seal decks and fences. After fires or floods, vandals, skunks or sewage, ServiceMaster crews provide mitigation services that save property and restore well-being. Additionally, ServiceMaster janitorial teams provide contract routine maintenance services in commercial buildings. Have a cleaning need?
