Puppywood Pet Resort Cares About Pets and the Environment – Meets Cleanliness, Health and Safety Goals Using Kaivac

The family-owned-and-operated Puppywood Pet Resortwith two locations in Cincinnati, was a recent recipient of the Angie's List Super Service Award for exemplary customer service – a success this stellar pet "daycare" and "home-away-from-home" attributes to caring staff, loyal customers, beloved pets, an inviting atmosphere, and overall cleanliness leading to a truly safe and healthy environment for pets and staff.


"The safety and health of pets is our number one concern," notes co-owner Jason Mesman.


Puppywood professionally cleans, disinfects and protects the indoor environment using:


- A medical-grade ultraviolet (UV) air sanitizing HVAC system to kill airborne bacteria.


  1. - Two state-of-the-art Kaivac no-touch spray-and-vac cleaning machines (the KV1750 and the KV1250) to completely remove soils from all parts of each facility, leaving areas deep-cleaned and odor-free.


"While we have always cleaned well, the Kaivac system enables us to take our cleaning to the next level. Kaivac units easily remove more soil than manual spraying, wiping or mopping. With a Kaivac, one person can now do more and superior cleaning−faster."


"By replacing mops and buckets, and extracting what mopping was leaving behind, the Kaivac machines help produce a cleaner indoor environment in less time, significantly reducing labor while making cleaning
easier on our staff."


Since Kaivac machines are mobile and on wheels, with onboard attachments for different cleaning applications, they make short work of removing pet ‘accidents' (feces, urine, blood, etc.) allowing Puppywood employees to quickly remove even unpleasant soils without touching them.


The removal of virtually all soil, including cleaning solutions and residues, is very important to prevent pet exposures to contaminants and chemicals, especially when pets are boarded, Jason notes.


He stresses that the proximity of the animals under Puppywood's watchful care makes hygienic cleaning extra important.


"Our Pet Resort is very much like a school or daycare for kids.  With lots of kids (or pups) in one place, this means it is more likely they may catch a cold or other virus than if they were at home. We take pride in how clean and safe we keep our facilities, and Kaivac is an important part of our pet care arsenal."


Kaivac has helped Puppywood Pet Resort achieve its cleanliness, health and safety goals consistently and affordably – and that may be something to bark about.

    When it comes to restrooms and other heavily soiled areas, nothing beats Spray-and-Vac cleaning. Kaivac's No-Touch Cleaning systems are built for extreme soil removal, empowering workers to clean hygienically without touching contaminated surfaces. Plus, it cuts labor, chemical and equipment costs. Achieving great, consistent results is easy with these patented systems. Simply apply automatically diluted cleaning solution to fixtures and floors in a low pressure fan spray, and then rinse surfaces and floors with always-fresh, clean water. The built-in power of the indoor pressure washer flushes soils out of grout lines and tight places that mops can't reach. Finally, just vacuum the floor dry -- completely removing soils, moisture and contaminants from all surfaces, grout lines and crevices, leaving the floor virtually dry and soil free. The Kaivac 1250 is ideal for smaller areas. It boasts a 12 gallon fresh water and a 12 gallon recovery tank. The system is powered by a 500 p.s.i. pump and a powerful 3-stage wet/dry vacuum.

    KaiBosh is a concentrated no-rinse Hospital Use disinfectant cleaner for Norovirus, Bird & Swine Flu and more, that disinfects and cleans in one labor saving step. Like all Kaivac chemicals, KaiBosh is perfect for use with our wet vacuum systems. Too often, users simply apply common cleaning detergents or mop soaps when cleaning and then carelessly vacuum them up. This is like pouring standard dish soap into an automatic dish washer. The result is predictable - extreme foaming, filling the vacuum tank with useless suds and causing premature shut-off. Worse, the excess foam has the potential to damage the vacuum motor. We are so confident in the performance and suitability of our chemicals that we extend our equipment warranty to customers who use them exclusively. Now also available in 8 oz. preportioned packets.
