Dr. Cameron Kmet is a chiropractor and office manager for his chiropractic clinic in Anchorage, AK. His concern for a clean medical office cannot be overstated. Kmet’s choice to use a ProTeam vacuum to clean Nordstrom Chiropractic Clinic is fueled by a desire to keep his office environment clean and care for his staff.
A Quality Clean, Every Time
Anchorage offers a rough climate for keeping places clean. The city gets precipitation a third of the year, and long winters mean a lot of snow, road salt, and dirt are tracked indoors on a regular basis. In Dr. Kmet’s case, sometimes constantly. Nordstrom Chiropractic, a 1200 sq foot clinic, has people coming and going every hour. This means his staff cleans the facility at least twice a day, not to mention all of the spot clean-up from whatever gets tracked inside between patients. He needed a vacuum that would stand up to constant work and not break after a few months. But every vacuum he purchased let him down. Kmet said, “They would last three or four months and then just stop working. They just couldn’t deal with the cleaning demand.”
After many disappointing purchases, Kmet got his hands on a ProTeam ProVac FS 6 with a power nozzle. “This vacuum was a game-changer,” stated Kmet. A year and a half in, and there is no sign of this vacuum slowing down. “We’ve put it through some really heavy use with what gets tracked in here and how often we use it. But it doesn’t matter what we need it to do; it does it. The suction is more powerful than anything else we’ve seen, and it’s so efficient. We love it!”
It turns out Dr. Kmet’s patients love the ProTeam ProVac FS 6 as well. Kmet said, “We regularly get reviews that talk about how friendly our staff is and how clean the clinic is. Patients notice.”
But for Kmet, a reliable and durable vacuum is only part of why he has chosen to go with ProTeam. The wellbeing of his staff is another reason for using the ProVac FS 6.
Backpack Vacuums Are Better For Backs vs. Traditional Uprights
The benefits of the ProVac FS 6 go far beyond the exceptional job it does for Nordstrom Chiropractic. “As a chiropractor and office manager, it’s my job to care for my patients and to take care of my staff,” said Kmet. The ProVac FS 6 helps in this endeavor with its ergonomic design and ease of use. “My staff love the lightweight backpack because it’s comfortable and puts so little strain on the back.”
In addition to the comfort of their backpack vacuum, Kmet and his team appreciate the time savings they can attribute to the ProVac FS 6 — they are able to clean more space in less time. Which means they have more time for other office related tasks. So not only is this backpack vacuum easier to use and more comfortable, it also needs to be worn less to complete the same amount of work as other vacuums. Combine increased comfort, exceptional durability, and superb efficiency, and you have the ideal scenario for cleaning.
Kmet said of the ProVac FS 6, “Lightweight, convenient, and saves time. It’s exactly what we need.”
Dr. Kmet’s preference for ProTeam vacuums is a personal office manager opinion and should not be interpreted as a professional medical opinion.
