The Power Washers of North America's Clean Across America Campaign Donates $50,000 in Services

Share Article

Clean Across America (CAA) is an annual event where the members of the contractor’s association Power Washers of North America (PWNA) contribute their services to worthy community and charitable venues. These venues are chosen by participating members or suggested by community leaders or by members of the press.

Power Washers of North America contractors from all around the country were involved this year, and they donated $50,000 worth of work to make their communities better places to live. Some of the projects included churches, community centers, senior centers, cemeteries, and local points of interest.

This is the second year for this national effort by both PWNA contractors and their suppliers. The number of participating contractors and the value of the projects done increased sharply over last year.

In some cases, larger companies did multiple projects. One example of this is Facilitec, a PWNA member and one of the largest certified kitchen exhaust cleaning companies in the country. Facilitec did different projects in five states. Also in this group is Henry’s House Work, which did several local projects in Maryland and also participated in a huge out-of-state project.

That project was so large that it took the efforts of contractors from several states along with materials donated by four suppliers and a manufacturer to complete the job. Abner Doubleday Field, the birthplace of baseball, was cleaned from top to bottom this year for the first time in its 85-year history! Because of the involvement of so many people, the project took just one day to complete. PWNA is committed to environmental issues that relate to power washing, so all environmental considerations were incorporated into this work.

The list of participants in this project reads like a Who’s Who in the industry. Participants include:

Milford, NY - Mathew Johnson with Pressure Cleaning Services

Germantown, MD - Henry Bockman Henry's Housework

Long Island, NY - John Tornabene with Clean County

Win Gap, PA - Tom Vogel with ACR Products

Lawrenceville, GA Pete Marentay with Sun Brite Supply

Succasunna, NJ Jack Kramer with A Brilliant Solution

Covington, Ga Cujo Cooley with Pams Pressure Clean

Rome, NY Mike - Brown with All Brite

Cleveland, OH - Bob Williamson with Pressure Tek

Homerville, GA - John Allison with Envirospec

Redlands, CA - Jim Palmer with Hydro Tek Systems

Most CAA projects are done on a smaller scale, like the one selected by Scott McElroy (owner of Neptune’s Pressure Wash in Franklin, Wisconsin). Scott and his employees spent a day washing the Boy Scout HQ offices in Milwaukee. Scott is a volunteer Scout Leader who wanted to teach his young men what a being scout means in real life.

Lots of independent companies and their employees, along with their suppliers, came together for Clean Across America this year. They each donated thousands of dollars worth of work and time to make each of their communities a little better. Plans are already underway at PWNA for several new projects next year. If you would like to suggest a possible project for consideration, please contact PWNA headquarters at 800-393-PWNA.
