See for yourself what happens when cleaning pros untether themselves and go battery powered.
Miller County Hospital
Damian Belvedere, Account Manager for Healthcare Services Group, manages environmental services at Miller County Hospital in Colquitt, Ga. His staff of 50 cleans three facilities that comprise a hospital with a 24-hour emergency room and a nursing home. Belvedere’s staff previously cleaned VCT floors in the hospital with brooms and dust mops prior to mopping or scrubbing with an auto scrubber. Then Belvedere was asked to test the ProTeam GoFree Flex Pro cordless backpack vacuum and report his results. The hallways and lobby used to take an hour and a half to clean with a broom, dustpan, and dust mop. The GoFree Flex Pro cut that time in half.
With dust mops and brooms, we never got it all up. Sweeping would sweep dust into the air, and the dust mops would get overloaded and leave dust bunnies behind. The GoFree Flex Pro makes a huge difference in the quality of clean. We don’t have dust bunnies anymore.

University of Washington
Michael Nguyen, Training and Special Project Manager for Building Services, chaired a lean process improvement group at the University of Washington to tackle stairwell safety. They were concerned about trips and slips on the stairs. The group recommended moving to cordless backpack vacuums for stairwell cleaning. This solution had a second benefit of improving productivity. A stairwell of seven flights from basement to top floor took 30 minutes to clean with a standard backpack vacuum. With the GoFree Flex Pro cordless backpack vacuum from ProTeam, it takes only 10 minutes.
Everyone loves the cordless. It cuts down the time spent versus the corded backpack vacuum. There is no cord to get stuck under furniture or partitions. It eliminates the tripping hazard for the custodian and for the student. We tried a variety of cordless backpack vacuums, and the ProTeam GoFree Flex Pro was much better.

When Dura-Shine Clean invested in their first cordless backpack vacuum, Carlos Martinez put it to work in a Gold’s Gym location where cleaners had to maneuver around equipment and gym members who use the facility 24-hours a day.
When you have a cord in a big area like a gym, you don’t want to end up winding yourself around the equipment, so you have to think a lot while cleaning. With the GoFree Flex Pro, you don’t have to worry. It’s quicker with no cord slowing you down.
