The Challenge: When Stephen Kelly became General manager of the Cherry Cove Hospitality hotel property in Lexington Park, Md., he and his housekeeping staff weren't happy with their current cleaning supplies vendor. Kelly had used Procter and Gamble Professional products at other hotels and wanted to switch.
The Solution: The hotel began using Tide, Downy, Spic and Span, Mr. Clean and Febreze, among other P&G Professional products in December 2008.
"You can see the difference," said Kelly. "With P&G Professional products our hotel looks clean, smells clean and feels clean. We are in the service business and if you cut corners in cleanliness you are not going to have many guests to serve."
The Results: With P&G, the hotel ended up using fewer products with better results and saved nearly $2,000 in 2009.
"Every month, I have continued to save money," said Kelly. "This is a direct result of P&G Professional's quality products. When you get the job done right the first time you save money in the long run."
The Cherry Cove Hospitality customers agreed. Within six months of the switch, the hotel received a Gold Status for overall guest satisfaction.

Capital Hotel and Hospitality Services Inc., cleans high-end hotels, restaurants and other large facilities in Maryland, Washington, D.C., and northern Virginia. One challenge that they were facing in many of their facilities was keeping grout clean in the restrooms. John Marino, owner and president, saw a demonstration of Buckeye Marauder and was convinced it was the product they were looking for.
"Marauder does a great job of cleaning tile and whitening grout," Marino states.
Additionally, the company was searching for the best possible cleaner and disinfectant to use in restroom cleaning. Buckeye Terminator is the solution for both cleaning and disinfecting in one step.
Now they are able to clean and disinfect in one step, saving them a significant amount of time. Another benefit of Buckeye Terminator is that it has a kill claim for MRSA, a major concern in many facilities.
