The Anago Difference

When founder David Povlitz started this company back in 1989, he had complete clarity of mind regarding his mission. Though the end goal was to ensure commercial buildings stayed consistently clean and disinfected, Povlitz’ driving mission was to help others achieve financial freedom and security by becoming business owners themselves.

A Different Model

Povlitz built this company in a three-tiered franchise structure, enabling business-savvy professionals to build their own empires, with extensive territories and 7 Revenue Streams. While supporting everyday men and women in becoming small business owners within the commercial cleaning industry.

The Perfect Name

Povlitz spent weeks trying to decide what to name his company. He wanted something strong and unique—something truly meaningful. Soon enough, he came across “Anago.”

The name Anago is derived from the Greek-Latin term "anagogue," meaning to guide or uplift. It was a perfect fit. This was the exact mission that Povlitz was so passionate about—guiding and uplifting the lives of all Anago Franchise Owners, allowing them to achieve a level of success that would not only meet their own financial needs but also benefit their families for generations to come.

Putting Words into Action

Povlitz then developed the company values that he and his employees would spend the next 3+ decades working hard to honor.

Anago believes in people, and we understand the importance of education, appreciation, and advancement. We’ve been thriving for over 30 successful years, and we credit this accomplishment to our people. We value personal and professional integrity and realize that a forward-thinking, positive environment begins with us. Ultimately, this mindset results in the outstanding support we provide to all Anago Franchisees and our clients.

Color-Coded Microfiber Cloths

Our microfiber color-coded cloths can remove soil of microbes from hard surfaces. The synthetic material of split microfibers attracts and lock the dirt and matter, so they do not spread across surfaces when wiping. These hypo-allergenic cloths are also non-abrasive to delicate surfaces.

Our anti-drip flathead mops help floors dry faster, reducing slip and falls, while also reducing overall water usage. By reducing repeated use of dirty water, we lower cross contamination resulting in cleaner floors.
