OSA Janitorial Service becomes licensed dealer of Ceiling Pro International

OSA Janitorial Service of Phoenix recently was named a licensed dealer of Ceiling Pro International (CPI), a leader in the commercial ceiling cleaning industry. Based in Eden Prairie, MN, CPI was founded nearly 25 years ago and offers 18 bio-degradable, proprietary products to clean and sanitize ceilings.

OSA Janitorial Service has been owned by Brad Pierce since 2000. The company provides cleaning and janitorial services for restaurants, retail businesses, medical facilities, office buildings, grocery stores and charter schools in the Phoenix Metro area.

“Ceilings trap smoke, odor, grease, dust and other pollutants,” says Pierce. “Not only do they look bad, but also they can quickly become a sanitary problem.  Clean ceilings improve your lighting for a brighter, cleaner look to any space. We wanted to provide ceiling cleaning as a service to our clients and selected CPI as the best company in the industry. Using their products and systems, we are able to clean commercial ceilings for 80 percent less than replacing the ceilings. This service is environmentally friendly as we are avoiding unnecessary waste in landfills.”

CPI clients include well-known companies such as McDonald’s, Burger King, Costco, John Deere and Whole Foods Market. Roderick C. Olson of John Deere recently had his company cafeteria cleaned using CPI products. “It was water-stained, smoke-stained and of course, grease-stained and hadn’t been cleaned for many years. When they were done, it looked like a brand new ceiling,” Olson says.

“Dirty ceilings lead to higher rates of allergies and sickness in your employees, which of course leads to lower productivity and higher medical costs if you provide benefits,” Pierce adds. “Also, some industries, like restaurants, face fines or penalties for improper care of their ceilings.”

County health departments, such as Maricopa County, inspect restaurant ceilings for cleanliness as part of their regular inspection process.
