Press Release Body: Maid Brigade\'s Green Clean CertifiedT system uses cleaning
solutions certified by Green Seal, Inc. Its equipment and processes follow many
Green Seal standards for cleaning services. In addition, each franchisee must
receive certification from Maid Brigade after being trained to use the green
cleaning system.

Maid Brigade uses cleaning solutions that are Green Seal Certified.
Green Seal is a non-profit organization devoted to environmental standard setting,
product certification and public education. Green Seal offers certification to all
products covered by its Standards. Manufacturers may submit their products for
evaluation by Green Seal. Those which comply with Green Seal\'s requirements may be
authorized to use the Green Seal Certification Mark on products and in product
advertising. Manufacturers authorized to use the Green Seal Certification Mark on
their product are subject to an ongoing program of testing, inspection and
enforcement. The green cleaning solutions used by Maid Brigade are manufactured by
companies, including Betco, and carry the official Green Seal. In the advance of an
established government or third party green cleaning standard for the residential
cleaning industry, Maid Brigade has patterned its system on Green Seal\'s standard
for the commercial cleaning industry wherever applicable. For additional information

The vacuums used by Maid Brigade are certified through the Green Label Program.
Maid Brigade uses the ProTeam Four Level Filtration backpack, canister vacuum
cleaner. This vacuum is certified through the Carpet & Rug Institute\'s Green Label
Program for meeting stringent standards for soil removal, dust containment and
carpet appearance retention. It also removes 99.9 percent of particles measuring one
micron and larger, including dust mites, mold, pet dander and pollen, eliminating
many allergens and irritants that may trigger asthma symptoms. Also, ProTeam has
partnered with the American Lung Association to increase awareness of the importance
of clean indoor air.

Maid Brigade uses allergy-free and anti-bacterial cloths and mops.
Maid Brigade\'s exclusive Green Clean Certified system uses microfiber cloths that
are made from a scientific weave of polyester and polyamide to provide a lint-free,
multi-surface cleaning. These allergy-free and anti-bacterial cloths act as millions
of scrub brushes to remove germs, grease,lime and other dirt without damaging the
surface being cleaned. Because they last longer than cotton cloths or paper
products, microfiber cloths are more eco-friendly than their traditional
counterparts.

The microfiber technology is also used in Maid Brigade\'s floor mops. Using the same
technology as the cleaning cloths, the microfiber pads ensure a clean surface,
removing germs, dirt and grime. The dry mop is used to remove dust and dry dirt,
while the wet mop removes scuffs or marks from floors.

Franchisees and employees also undergo a Maid Brigade green certification process.
Before Maid Brigade franchisees can implement the Green Clean Certified system, they
must complete extensive training on how to use the solutions, microfiber products
and the cleaning process. They must complete three separate training modules on
Green Cleaning and then pass tests on this material. Once that is completed, they
train their cleaning teams with classroom sessions and practical sessions in
customers\' homes. The teams must also pass tests and their in-home training
cleanings are evaluated by franchise management to ensure proper implementation.
Once all parts of the training have been passed, the franchisees receive their Maid
Brigade certification and can begin using the Green Clean Certified system.
