Paying Attention to Detail Since 1993

We have created a company that focuses on the customer's needs and customizes every job to meet those needs.

The Early Days

Ohio Electronic Protection (OEP) (the predecessor to the current generation of Only Experienced Professionals (OEP)) was founded in April of 1993 in Columbus, Ohio by Curt Wellington and Glenn Smith. In 2008, Koorsen Fire and Security out of Indianapolis bought the security and fire divisions of OEP and the company went idle for much of 2009.  In 2010, a new business plan was born and Only Experienced Professionals began sales of commercial cleaning contracts for businesses in Central Ohio.  By 2014 OEP had amassed many new contracts and employed six crews.

Where We Are Now

 OEP has been growing! 2015 saw the addition of Chris Wellington (Curt’s son) as a business partner and Director of Sales and Marketing, the retiring of Beth Goodall, and the hiring of Dave Clements to run the operations department. We have been aggressively seeking out new markets and exploring additional revenue streams to complement those coming from our existing maintenance contracts. This project work has led to improvements in our understanding of how to learn the skills needed to complete the jobs, and also establishing a solid network of vendors and suppliers from whom we can obtain and be trained on the equipment required.

What The Future Holds

We are a much more confident, and capable company than we were 6 months ago, and are intent on continuing the momentum we’ve generated. We expect sales to double in 2016 as we continue to service our business partners’ needs in ever increasing project scope and business growth. We will devote ourselves to being promise keepers and role models of customer care after the sale. We also see many opportunities after our recent success with dry ice blasting in our future.  We want to aggressively explore what other niches this process can be used for and become the “go-to” company for this service.

Our Services

We offer a wide range of services from office cleaning to warehouse restorations. Click here to request a quote and we will send someone to perform a custom site survey at a time convenient for you.

Contract Cleaning

Our contract cleaning branch is available to keep your business looking sharp and professional at all times. We create custom cleaning plans for each site and staff those plans with professional cleaners who are the top of their field.

Specialty Flooring

In addition to cleaning, we perform final waxing and buffing services for floors. We finish all floor types in accordance with the manufacturers guidelines including stripping, cleaning, and wax finishing of VCT, LVT, polished concrete, and specialty products like Static Dissipative Tiling. 

We Do Windows

The glass at your site is extremely important to the final look of the business. Our crews will clean the glass both inside and out and include the small details like edging the mullions and removing the dust that collects in the corners to give your business that truly professional appearance.

Post Construction

Be it a dialysis center, a car dealership, or a 300,000 square foot warehouse with office pods, we can make it shine. Your project work is not done until the final clean has been done and your crew passes their punch-out inspection. We will make that inspection go smoothly and leave your customer happy and with a desire to call you the next time they need work done.

Dry-ice Blasting

We perform site specific clean-up services using dry ice. This process will remove paint from floors, asphalt from road machinery, fire-soot from wood, and graffiti from the outside of your historic building. All without harming the underlying surfaces or their surface specific treatments (e.g. the cream coating of concrete). 

Long-term Refreshes

Nothing sells a new lease like a freshly cleaned space. We will send our crews out to your site and have the area looking, feeling, and smelling clean to help ensure that potential lessee chooses your site when they are shopping for a new place to do business.

core-features

Our Focus

We want to be the first name that comes to mind when our customers need cleaning services.

Service After the Sale

OEP considers the long term relationship with and ongoing service to our customers to be just as important as the initial sale. We will always strive to create long-lasting professional relationships where our customers want to call us first.

Continuing Professional Development

We will always deliver a quality product and performance to our customers. If this means learning new skills, bringing along subject matter experts, or garnering new certifications in order to get the job done right; then, that is what we will do.

Competitive Service and Value

We don’t own any cookie cutters. Every job we staff is done with custom scope and pricing based on the exact requirements of that job in order to maximize the value we bring to our customers.
