This month's Headliner
177 N Main St, Souderton. Across the street from Towne Answering Service
Stop a Something Better team member on the street and ask what the best part of their job is,
chances are they’ll say, “That’s easy! It’s seeing the difference we make in homes and the
smiles on our clients’ faces.” When you consider that Something Better has been serving our
community for 15 years, that’s a lot of smiles!
Something Better provides cleaning and organizing services designed to relieve the stress that
burdens their clients. Cleaning is performed in homes and small offices and can range from
one-time cleaning jobs to cleaning on a regular basis. Spring cleaning (happily offered any time
of the year!) and post-construction cleaning are special areas of expertise. Clients typically start
with a free site evaluation in which a customized cleaning program is set up for their home.
That level of personal care and service continues with every cleaning.
Organizing is performed as a one-time event or as periodic sessions to maintain the initial
organizing results. Something Better is happy to take on small jobs such as organizing pantries
and closets but is just as happy to jump in to de-clutter and re-organize a whole house. Some
clients are buried under clutter and others just want their home to work better for their family’s
needs. No problem! Something Better really shines when it comes to helping some of their
favorite people—those who are served by Montgomery and Bucks County agencies that help
seniors and developmentally disabled people stay in their homes. It’s an unusual niche that
lets Something Better exercise all their skills from removing the clutter to organizing what
remains to performing a top-to-bottom cleaning so that home is beautiful again.
Margaret Zglinicki began Something Better
in 2004 to support her family while still being able to
homeschool her children. As she considered what kind of business she wanted start, she
observed there are many people who lack the time, energy, knowledge, or desire to clean and
organize and realized this creates a great need for reputable, professional, and customer-
friendly help. She jumped in with both feet and never looked back. At first, the only team
member on the team was Margaret. Soon, however, her kids began to assist in the business
and it’s been a family-oriented business ever since. While Margaret’s children are now grown
and moved out of the area except one daughter who still helps with the business, other
mother/daughter, sister/sister, and husband/wife teams have come on board. Family is so
important to Something Better that their conference room is decorated with pictures of team
members and their families.
Because of their serious commitment to putting the customer first, Something Better has grown
from Margaret being the sole employee to a company that now boasts 25 employees. Team
members go through rigorous training so they’re equipped to give clients that “ahhhh moment”
when they walk into their home and feel like everything is right with the world—at least until the
dog and kids run through the house.
When you’re looking around your home and thinking "there's got to be something better!”, it’s
good to know there is!
