WASHINGTON, Jan. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- It's the next best thing to a time machine – a "time website" that helps homeowners get more done in less time.
ServiceMaster, one of the world's largest residential and commercial service networks, has a new website, mytimeheroes.com, that can help you become more productive. The website offers expert timesaving tips for homeowners, and encourages consumers to share their own best timesaving techniques.
Busy people can tap into valuable advice from time and labor saving experts, take a quick survey to identify time-dragging tasks, and share what they'd do if they could get back "lost hours." Survey participants also have a chance to win one of three weekly $150 prizes – or a $500 grand prize – all while learning to do more in less time with less stress.
"Lots of people say, 'there aren't enough hours in the day,'" said Peter Tosches, ServiceMaster's senior vice president of corporate communications. "We want to help give people back some of those hours. ServiceMaster has experts in home maintenance and home cleaning services who are eager to share their experience and advice for making more time for the things we really want to do in our lives. It's all part of our mission to simplify and improve the quality of our customers' lives."
The company's time-saving brands are Terminix, TruGreen, American Home Shield, ServiceMaster Clean, Merry Maids, Furniture Medic and AmeriSpec.
Starting now through the week leading up to Daylight Saving Time on March 10, three weekly winners will be randomly selected to receive prizes of $150 each. A grand prize winner will be announced Sunday March10, just as the clocks spring forward.
