Sanitaire logoChase Tower, the tallest building in Arizona, demands professional cleaning services that can scale the structure's 38 stories and more than 700,000 square feet with ease and power — without interrupting tenants' evening work habits.

To meet the demands of this prominent client, ABM Janitorial Services, a leading provider of integrated facility solutions nationwide, armed staff with high-filtration, ultra-quiet upright vacuums from Sanitaire Commercial by Electrolux.

"Chase Tower is a Class-A building and the ultimate busy-office setting," says Peter Denton, branch operations manager for ABM Janitorial Services - South Central Inc. "Because of the high density of people in the building and the constant foot traffic, we were challenged to use quiet uprights with superior filtration and no dust kick-up."

ABM selected Sanitaire vacuums for the job and put multiple Sanitaire models to the task in Chase Tower over the past five years.

"Sanitaire vacuums are extremely quiet, high-filtration units and they deliver the premium performance our client needs — right down to the fresh track marks on the carpet that give tenants visual proof that the building just received a deep, thorough clean," notes Denton.

For many ABM clients, best-in-class cleaning performance means quiet vacuums that meet today's high standards for green cleaning excellence.

"Quiet cleaning tools are important for our clients," asserts Denton. "In many of the facilities we clean, tenants are working extended hours and don't want to be disturbed by vacuums. Sanitaire's Quiet Clean line is a great option for our facilities interested in day cleaning schedules — or those that need day cleaning convenience even after the 9-5 workday has ended — like Chase Tower."

Every vacuum in Sanitaire's Quiet Clean line operates at 70dB or below so staff can discretely clean at any hour and with less interruption to office workers.

The Sanitaire Quiet Clean line also helps ABM deliver on its corporate sustainability commitment, which focuses on enhanced indoor air quality at an affordable price.

ABM is currently green cleaning more than 300 million square feet of building space nationally.

To assist ABM in this venture, all Sanitaire Quiet Clean models carry the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) Seal of Approval certification and are compliant with the guidelines of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

"We also have a lot of experience cleaning schools, and we bring the education industry's standard for health, filtration and performance to every client and every industry we work in; that's why we rely on Sanitaire and its wide selection of 'green cleaning' vacuums," proclaims Denton.

The Building Services Solution

ABM provides specialized cleaning solutions for thousands of commercial, industrial, government and retail clients across the U.S. and international cities.

A leading facilities services company, ABM has used Sanitaire products since its inception to provide consistent durability, performance and value for its clients.

"Sanitaire vacuums last a long time, which is extremely important to us," adds Denton. "I've worked closely with models such as the SC688, and it has really become a workhorse for my team. It meets the demands of rigorous, commercial cleaning without sacrificing performance or durability, and we really take our vacuums to the races."

For more than 35 years, Sanitaire has engineered durable tools that allow clients to focus on cleaning — not fixing or, worse, replacing — an essential tool for their business.

"At ABM, we recognize and appreciate the value that Sanitaire vacuums bring to our clients, and we will continue to use Sanitaire uprights as our standard of excellence in floor cleaning," concludes Denton.
