Jani-King is a commercial cleaning franchise system that has been providing tailored cleaning for all types of businesses since 1969. Now a worldwide company, Jani-King’s fifty-plus years of experience means they know industrial cleaning as good as anyone.
Rob Thompson is the Director of Business Development for Jani-King Ottawa, part of the Canadian arm of Jani-King. Having joined Jani-King in 2012, Thompson now runs the company’s marketing department, assists in operations, and oversees large construction cleaning projects.
Jani-King Ottawa is responsible for more than 900 facilities — car dealerships, schools, medical facilities, office towers, new construction, and arenas. One of those arenas happens to be the Canadian Tire Center — home to the NHL team, the Ottawa Senators. With such a wide variety of clients, Jani-King Ottawa needs vacuums that are up to challenging cleaning scenarios. Thompson said, “this is why Jani-King has been using ProTeam vacuums for more than 20 years.” With crews cleaning day and night, this cleaning company demands the best. In fact, they trust ProTeam vacuums so much that they provide new franchise owners with their choice of a Super Coach Pro or ProGen vacuum.
Vacuums For Tough Cleaning Scenarios
Thompson and the Jani-King crew understand every aspect of industrial cleaning. The diversity in their client base means they clean and disinfect a multitude of surfaces. From carpet to hardwood and tile to concrete, they need a vacuum fleet that’s up for hard jobs. When cleaning newly constructed buildings, heavy dirt and grim, and flooding from rain present significant cleaning challenges. Combine this with the food and drink that finds its way to the floor of arenas like the Canadian Tire Center, and vacuums are put to the test.
The Jani-King Ottawa team uses a wide variety of ProTeam vacuums to meet their client’s varying needs. Their fleet includes Super Coach Pro’s, the ProGuard series, and the ProGen series. Thompson states, “ProTeam vacuums are efficient, easy to use, and ready to clean. I love the versatility of the ProGuard models. The ProGuard 16 is my go-to for spills, floods, and a lot of new construction scenarios. They just do a great job.”
Durability You Can Depend On
ProTeam is committed to providing vacuums that meet the demands of day-in and day-out industrial cleaning so the companies that use them can provide the best service possible. This means so much more than simply getting surfaces clean.
To meet the intense cleaning needs at a wide variety of facilities, Jani-King Ottawa needs vacuums that deliver more than a good job. They need vacuums that are reliable. Thompson understands this. He said, “ProTeam vacuums are quite durable — I don’t know that we’ve had any issues in the past five years.” But durability and top-notch cleaning aren’t the only reasons Jani-King Ottawa uses ProTeam.
LEED Certified Buildings Need An Extra Touch
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design or LEED is a green building certification program that is recognized worldwide. This certification is a growing trend with businesses eager to demonstrate their concern for the environment. As more LEED-certified buildings are built, the challenges of cleaning such facilities grow, but this isn’t something that worries Jani-King.
Jani-King Ottawa cleans several LEED-certified buildings. From Silver to Gold to Platinum certifications, these clients require an extra level of care to make sure they can maintain their coveted certification. Thompson stated, “Clients with LEED Certified buildings in many cases have higher standards. And they should. That’s why we use ProTeam — they help us meet LEED requirements and do the job we need them to do every time.”
