April 3, 2012

MEMPHIS, TN — Tony Loftis has wondered how to improve the cleaning of offices and other commercial spaces for 30 years, according to The Memphis Daily News.

Now, however, Loftis, the director of system development for ServiceMaster Clean, may have come up with the next step in dust removal, the article stated.

According to the article, Loftis was recently granted a patent for ServiceMaster Clean "Capture and Removal" technology, which involves a "dust wand."

"Instead of moving the dust around like we would with a big, wooly duster or a feather duster, we are actually sucking that dust up and taking it out of the building, which leaves a cleaner environment for the building occupant. There''s less dust to move around the next day," said Loftis.
