Ruben Rives is the owner and founder of H2Only Renewable Cleaning, a contract cleaning company dedicated to safe, effective, and sustainable methods, including using ProTeam backpack vacuums to reduce dust and improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). Rives was introduced to backpack vacuums by cleaning consultant Rex Morrison who specializes in school environments. Previously, he used upright vacuums for carpeting and brooms for hard flooring. When his staff swept hard floors, he noticed they were doing more harm than good.
"If you use a broom, you're not really picking up anything. You are just sweeping it into the air, and it's going to settle later. With the backpack, you pick up more dirt and dust faster. It's very important that you pick up more dust because of allergies," said Rives. "ProTeam backpacks are easier to manage. They are more ergonomic, so there is less strain for the people who wear them."
