Cintas Cleans Up on Travel Channel’s “Hotel Impossible”
The Daytona Beach Dream Inn to receive a deep cleaning to restore guest rooms and pool areas

DAYTONA, Fla. — The Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS) today announced it will appear on an upcoming episode of the new Travel Channel series “Hotel Impossible.” On the show, Cintas will provide its deep cleaning services to revitalize the Dream Inn of Daytona Beach, Fla., to improve its guests’ experience and the overall image of the property. The episode is scheduled to air Monday, August 6, 2012 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Travel Channel.

“We were excited to partner with Travel Channel to help the Dream Inn to restore its original charm,” said Fred Wehby, Sr. Director of Deep Clean Services, Cintas. “The opportunity to help a unique, family-owned property achieve its full potential is extremely rewarding for us.”

Each episode of “Hotel Impossible” highlights a property that is experiencing negative customer reviews, low occupancy levels and/or high employee turnover. The show’s host, hotel “fixer” and guru Anthony Melchiorri, works with hoteliers and their staff to identify key operational issues and then transform the property. From providing deep cleaning solutions to demonstrating the proper way to pour a glass of wine, Melchiorri’s prescriptions help restore the property from a struggling hotel into a bustling tourist destination.

To help combat negative complaints about room odor and cleanliness, Cintas will deep clean guest room floors using its hot water carpet extraction cleaning system. This process effectively deep cleans carpets to remove odor, stains and any residue that has been left behind by prior cleaning methods. Then, through Cintas’ Fast Dry Method all moisture is quickly extracted from carpets to reduce drying time to just a few hours. Finally, carpets are treated with a stain repellant to minimize the possibility of future staining and discoloration.

Dream Inn guests will be able to breathe more deeply once Cintas professionals clean air conditioning units with its ChemTron coil cleaning service. This eco-friendly service improves indoor air quality by sanitizing and disinfecting air conditioning units to increase air flow and reduce overall energy consumption. It also works to prevent against future contaminants, so guests will experience cleaner, fresher air throughout their stay.

Cintas professionals will also work to revive the Dream Inn’s pool deck with their four-step deep cleaning process. The high-pressure hot water system will effectively clean tile and grout, which restores the surface back to its original appearance.

“We are looking forward to seeing how Cintas’ services will transform our property,” said Jody Kinberger, Owner at the Dream Inn. “We take our guests’ feedback very seriously and are excited to restore the appearance of our floors – and our reputation.”
