ATLANTA – Orkin’s new disinfection service, VitalClean, has provided the company with an opportunity to provide complimentary services to charities, non-profit organizations and businesses in local communities across the country.
Since Orkin announced its new VitalClean service in late March to help businesses and residences quickly and thoroughly disinfect to protect against germs and pathogens in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, they have been providing these services. Below is a sampling of some of the services they have recently provided across the country during the past few weeks.
Several members of the Rollins and Orkin executive teams helped provide service at a location close to its Atlanta headquarters. Attendees included John Wilson, President and Chief Operating Officer of Rollins, Inc., Freeman Elliott, President of Orkin, Steve Leavitt, President of Emerging Opportunity Groups of Rollins, and Kevin Smith, Chief Marketing Officer of Rollins, who joined the Atlanta Commercial Region team to donate VitalClean service to the United Military Care Center in Marietta, Ga. This organization is a non-profit corporation servicing veterans in need for more than 50 years.
“Our mission is to help protect the world where we live, work and play. This was a great opportunity for us to bring this mission to life by helping an organization that works to give back to our military heroes,” said John Wilson.
Orkin Palm Beach Branch 655, in West Palm Beach, Fla., provided a charity VitalClean service with for Iglesia Vision International, a local church. “We wanted their staff and congregation to have a sense of safety when returning to their services,” said Kimberly Casey, Orkin Account Manager.

“We are all navigating the impacts of COVID-19, and we want the local communities we serve to feel our presence and support as we work through this together. We are glad to be able to play even a small part in helping organizations such as these better serve their employees and customers in a safe, clean environment,” said Freeman Elliott, President of Orkin.
