Many year in review stories begin with something like, “It’s been an exciting year…”. But for us at KleenRite, it truly has been an exciting year - and one we will never forget!
2019 brought about some major changes for our business. In June, we formally announced our grand opening and hosted a ribbon cutting for our new facility located 703 N. Country Fair Drive in Champaign. If you haven’t stopped in to see us yet, we welcome you to come for a visit!
We broke ground on the new building in May 2018, and began moving in May 2019. Our new building has been such a positive move for so many reasons. It features an in-house, state-of-the-art rug cleaning area that is both temperature and humidity controlled. This feature allows the team to clean area rugs in-house, year-round. Our new building also accommodates all of our fleet and restoration equipment indoors, and in one location, allowing our team a faster and more efficient response time.
It’s really taken our team a long time to get to where we are now. And we couldn’t be more honored to have your support. It’s our longstanding clients and this great community that have allowed us to make all these great changes in 2019.
Our new facility has, and will benefit, for many years to come by being able to attract and keep very talented individuals that will help us grow our business. I started KleenRite in 1998 with my wife, Darla. Since then, we’ve grown our team to include 16 individuals who are devoted to helping our clients. We’ve also grown to offer a variety of both residential and commercial services including carpet cleaning, furniture and upholstery cleaning, duct cleaning, pet concerns, rug cleaning, and tile and grout cleaning. In addition, our team offers 24/7 emergency response and restoration services for water and smoke/fire damage. And we’re not stopping there - we’re looking for new and better ways to continue to serve you and will be sure to keep you posted as we move into the new year.
In closing, it truly has been an exciting year for our team. Again, Darla and I appreciate your continued support and we look forward to continuing to serve Champaign-Urbana and the surrounding communities as we move into this next decade. From our family to yours, Happy Holidays and best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year.
