(Wood Dale, IL, September 8, 2010) – Disaster Kleenup International, Inc., today announced that Sullivan’s Cleaning and Restoration of Green Bay, WI, is a proud participant in the popular ABC Series, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, surprising Rhex Arboleda, a hometown hero.
Rhex has distinguished himself
by locally leading the movement to banish the childhood obesity epidemic. In
2004, he created “Move to the Groove;” a dance program designed to get both
teachers and students on their feet and in shape. Rhex’s award-winning dance
program is currently being utilized in 3 elementary schools where health and
wellness has been emphasized as a priority. Ironically, his own family resided
in a 70-year-old home that had become a health hazard.
Rhex Arboleda and his wife
Claire came to America 8 years ago from the Philippines to pursue the American
Dream. In an effort to show his appreciation to the country that provided him a
better opportunity, he has committed his life to teaching. With 5 energetic
kids ranging from ages two to ten, the Arboleda house is always bubbling over
On August 14th, the Arboleda’s
got the wake-up call they’ve been waiting for when Ty Pennington and the Extreme
Makeover: Home Edition team together with two-time “Dancing with the Stars”
winner Derek Hough arrived to turn their dreams into a reality by giving
them enough room to boogie to the beat. To show their support and along to lend
a hand were “Dancing with the Stars” professionals, Tony Dovolani, Anna
Trebunskaya, Mark Ballas and Chelsie Hightower. Extreme Makeover: Home
Edition stepped in and worked to replace their house with a brand new home
that allows them to finally be together again in a safe environment.
Sullivan’s Cleaning assisted
by providing drying and cleaning services, including dehumidification and
round-the-clock monitoring and labor, to expedite the drying of the drywall,
primer, and paint in the interior and exterior of the home. The project was
completed the week of August 14, 2010 in Neenah, WI.
