Vanguard® prides itself in customer service which owner Charles Lockee says, “…is the heart and soul of our everyday business.”


Vanguard Cleaning Systems of the Triad is a locally-owned business.  We opened the company in 2009 and our franchise owners currently service over 300 customers in the Piedmont Triad area.  Our janitorial franchise owners service customers in a variety of facilities, including office spaces, healthcare, educational institutions, industrial, and manufacturing.  

Vanguard Cleaning Highest Account Satisfaction Award - 2016Our franchise owners’ clients have varied cleaning requirements, ranging from general office cleaning, healthcare facility cleaning, industrial office cleaning, to the different needs of private schools and churches.  While approximately 20% of our franchise owners’ customers are medical offices and medical specialty practices, our franchise owners successfully provide a wide variety of cleaning services. Their maintenance and specialty care routines are tailored to the needs of each individual facility.

We take pride in the high quality of our customer service, which owner Charles Lockee says, “…is the heart and soul of our everyday business.  We fully expect to do exactly what we promise we will do and more.  As humans, we make mistakes, but rest assured, our staff will make every effort to ensure that the concerns of our customers are addressed.”  Indeed, for two of the last three years, Vanguard Cleaning Systems of the Triad has won the “Highest Customer Service Award,” which Charles credits to outstanding service providers and their teamwork with the office staff.  “Our credo is that we want to take cleaning off the list of things about which our customers have to worry.  Having been fortunate enough to win two Customer Service Awards is evidence that we’re doing a pretty good job of that and I am very grateful to everyone involved, especially our customers.”
