Marlyn Purdie is the Owner and Operator of Purdie Clean, a small commercial cleaning business in Lytton, Iowa, where his clients consist of banks, restaurants, and several residences. Marlyn began his commercial cleaning journey one summer when he worked for an Iowa-based commercial cleaning company. Over the course of 3 months, Marlyn helped clean and maintain 92 gym floors throughout the state, and he has been in the industry ever since.
Power Turned a Skeptic to a Convert
Marlyn started his business using uprights because he thought ProTeam backpack vacuums were a gimmick. He maintained this position until a fateful day in 1999 when he witnessed a demo of the ProTeam Super CoachVac. Marlyn said, “I couldn’t understand why people would use these straight suction vacuums. That is until I saw one in action.” A distributor was showcasing the Super CoachVac, and what Marlyn witnessed changed his mind forever. “I was blown away! It was like a shop vac on steroids. The suction was incredible. And I thought — Now I get it. And I have been using ProTeam ever since.”
Increased Comfort — Easy to Move and Easy to Use
For more than two decades, Marlyn has spent his evenings providing his expertise to business owners and homeowners, cleaning every surface imaginable. While he has spent many of those years using the older Super CoachVac model, he recently switched to the ProTeam Super Coach Pro 6, and his love for the brand has grown.
Switching from an upright to a backpack vacuum was a definite improvement on ergonomics for Marlyn, but the lightweight body of the 6-quart Super Coach Pro provides a whole new level of comfort. “The design of the vacuum body sits so close to the user, it’s easy to wear,” said Marlyn. “I experience little to no fatigue.” Marlyn feels part of the increased comfort is due to the lightweight vacuum, but just as important is the articulating harness. “Yes, the 6 is lightweight, but the harness is a major reason for the increased comfort. Easy to fit, easy to maneuver — the Super Coach Pro is super easy to use.”
In addition to the power and comfort of the Super Coach Pro, Purdie Clean has a deep appreciation for the filtration system ProTeam vacuums provide. “I rarely have to dust when cleaning. On average, maybe once a week. This is because my vacuum doesn’t kick anything up. What gets sucked up stays sucked up and doesn’t settle on counters or floorboards. This makes my job a lot easier.”
The Super Coach Pro 6 is so effective at not kicking up dust or returning particulates into the air that Marlyn no longer uses a dust mop. He said, “They simply aren’t necessary when using these vacuums.”
No Other Option
When the comfort and power of the Super Coach Pro 6 are combined with the superior filtration system of these vacuums, Marlyn feels there isn’t another option for him. He said, “Everything is more efficient with these vacuums. I can do more in less time, and I can do it better. Why would I use anything else?”
