After a recent tele-meeting of Kaivac sales and marketing people, Bob Robinson, Sr., founder and CEO of Kaivac, sent those on the call a recap of the meeting. The gist of the meeting was to review the current pandemic, its impact on the professional cleaning industry, and most specifically, what the industry can do to help cleaning workers at the forefront, working to stop the spread of the infection.

Along with the recap, Robinson included a poem. Says Robinson, it was totally “spur of the moment,” but he adds it conveys many of his thoughts as we journey into year two of the pandemic.

That poem is below:

Grateful for the Janitor, Our First Responder

We all expect to work in a clean, healthy environment.

And it’s our janitors we ask to provide this.

In this pandemic we should call them “Essential Workers” and “First Responders.”

That way, they’ll know just how grateful we are for their service.

They are asked to work in harm’s way.

They charge into buildings.

Fighting the pandemic by cleaning contaminated surfaces.

But what cleaning weapons are we giving them to fight with?

Who else do we have to do this?

We must give them the proper tools.

After all, how would you like to be in their shoes?

Empowering them to clean safely, effectively, and fast, we commit to improving their toolkit.

We are grateful for the janitor, and at Kaivac, we are doing something about it.
