ProTeam Kicks Off Asthma Day Backpack Give-Away
Nominate a school or university custodian now on the ProTeam Facebook fan page

“We were inspired to hold this contest after speaking with a college custodian in the US who suffered from debilitating asthma. Her attacks were often triggered by airborne dust emitted with the exhaust from her upright,” said Jacalyn High, ProTeam Director of Marketing. “We wanted to honor how janitorial workers across the country and the world put their health on the line everyday, and help improve the life of one of them with a HEPA backpack vacuum.”

Any person associated with a school or university in any location across the nation and world can nominate a custodian by posting on the Facebook fan page for ProTeam ( or by emailing

In the posting, the nominator should list the name of the school or university, the name of the custodian being nominated, and one reason why that person deserves a ProTeam Super QuarterVac HEPA, with a focus on improving lung or overall health.

ProTeam is a longtime educational partner with the American Lung Association (ALA) to educate the public on indoor air quality and lung health. The ALA does not endorse products.

ProTeam® became a global phenomenon in the commercial cleaning world in 1987 after introducing a game-changing design innovation: the lightweight backpack vacuum. Scientific studies and maintenance crews consistently find ProTeam vacuums save time, money and resources while improving indoor air quality. In 2009, Emerson—a diversified global manufacturing and technology company—acquired ProTeam, and the legacy of innovation continues with a full range of high-performance vacuums designed to tackle every cleaning situation.
