Cleaning in Minneapolis?

I have a need for a one time deep-cleaning service in the Minneapolis area. Does anybody have any recommendations? Further, does anybody have tips for getting family members to try and be less cluttered?

The gist of it is that my father owns a 2000 foot house which he alone is occupying. Due to various reasons including depression, he has been thus far unable to keep it clean by himself to the point where it is affecting his ability to operate. Whenever I visit, I attempt to help out by cleaning up what I can, but my visits are too short to be able to really give it the cleanup that is required; what little I can accomplish is undone by the time I'm able to visit again in a time less than a year.
Part of it is that it's too much house for him, part of it is that he's dealing with many things right now. In any case, I think that getting this service at least once for him is something that I need to do in order to keep him going.
He has acquired some bad habits during this period of time like leaving food out [for some items, literally months], allowing clutter to spread, and generally not being able to deal with it as it grows. He doesn't know to ask for help, and I myself don't even know who or where to go for help. Previous askmefi questions say 'go for recommendations of others,' but he's too proud to do so and I'm simply lost as to how to do that in Minneapolis.
Please help me help him. I think he's been quietly suffering through this to try and make sure his kids don't suffer, but I simply can't allow him to live like this. If anybody's been through similar situations and have other tips past maid recommendations, I would love to hear them.
