Atlanta United Cleans With Zep
July 6, 2022
MARIETTA, GA - It is no simple task to keep clean the world-class Atlanta United practice facility that hosts its Major League Soccer, United Soccer League, academy, and unified teams. Atlanta United selected Zep as their partner and supplier to keep the facility clean and sanitary.
Zep, an Atlanta-based manufacturer of cleaning, disinfection, and sanitation solutions, supplies its expertise and breadth of products to ensure athletes are working in a clean environment.
"Atlanta United has a world-class training facility not just in MLS but worldwide," explains Thomas Videki, Director of Operations. "We pride ourselves on keeping the facility looking and smelling clean, which is due to our partnership with Zep."
Videcki explains why he choose Zep, "In a cleaning partner, we need products on hand and ready to go. We know Zep chemicals are going to do the job right the first time. We have had no worries that the lineup of products will get everything done, and there have been no surprises."
“At Zep, being a great partner is about bringing great expertise, experience, and products," said Neil Grossman, Zep Director of Marketing. “Our purpose is to make businesses cleaner, safer, and more productive.”
Keeping players healthy is a top concern of the team, which is addressed by the Zep Assure program. Zep Assure is a customizable biosafety program that deep cleans, disinfects, validates the cleanliness of surfaces, and leaves a protective coating against harmful microorganisms. Said Videcki, “Our trainers are worried about the athletes, specifically how clean the facility is. They’re checking to make sure we’re housing our top-notch athletes but also taking care of them on a sanitary side as well.”
As the official cleaning partner of Atlanta United FC, Zep provides cleaning products for AMB Sports+Entertainment that including Atlanta United, the PGA Tour Superstore, and Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Last season, Zep helped install 600 hand sanitizers across AMB properties. To prepare for Spring 2022 events, Zep’s EcoClear deep cleaning and sanitizing division provided an extensive cleaning of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium using their knowledge of common troubles pots and products from the Zep Assure program. This season, Zep became the primary cleaning product supplier to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Training Ground, which is a 33-acre site featuring a 30,000 square-foot headquarters building and six full-size fields including three natural grass and three FieldTurf surfaces.
