MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- Bravo Protection Products is celebrating an incredible milestone in 2022. An industry leader in the Clear Bra and Paint Protection Film installation business, Bravo is celebrating over 20 years of proudly serving Minneapolis, the western suburbs, and St. Paul.

According to Tommy Prezioso, the owner of Bravo Protection Products, "Our constant focus on innovation and use of the latest available technologies has helped us stay ahead of the curve in Paint Protection Film installation and window tinting. At the same time, we have always focused on providing excellent service to all our clients, building long-lasting customer relationships and loyalty for long-term success."

He further explains, "We are one of the few XPEL-certified film installers in the Twin Cities and one of the country's largest installers of XPEL. We believe in providing the finest products to all our customers. As a top-level Clear Bra installation company in Minneapolis, we apply high-quality XPEL Paint Protection Films to protect your car against damage caused by rocks, gravel, salt, insects, small debris, and other dangers."

From the Basic Protection Package, which offers partial protection for your hood, fenders, and mirrors, to the Full Car Protection Plan, which covers every square inch of your paintwork, Bravo offers flexible PPF solutions to fit your preference.

Getting complete PPF or Clear Bra coverage for your vehicle can help your car look its best for years. At the same time, it also endows your vehicle with the ability to combat the elements and protect your paint finish from chipping from small rocks or small debris on the road.

Another critical element that sets Bravo apart is its incredible team with over 50 years of experience in the automotive and window tinting industry.

Prezioso explains, "When we talk about Paint Protection Film installation, there's no substitute for experience. My team has perfected our processes using the knowledge and practice gained over decades of PPF installation and window tinting jobs. The level of expertise and the attention to detail that comes with it is hard to find anywhere else."

Apart from its excellent human resources, the company also channels advanced technological tools, including the XPEL DAP or Design Access Program. The program offers a database of over 80,000 patterns from XPEL to apply Clear Bra Paint Protection Film accurately for every car, every time.

Another distinct advantage that distinguishes Bravo Protection Products from the rest is the company's world-class dealer network with certified installers in over 55 countries.

Additionally, the importance of ensuring a positive customer experience is high up on Tom Prezioso's list. He states, "One of the key factors that have been instrumental to our success is our referrals. These arise from a high level of customer satisfaction. At Bravo, we display a strong commitment to the client because we are attentive to our clients' every need. We dedicate ourselves to every job, taking pride in doing business the old-fashioned way."

While Clear Bra or Paint Protection Film installation is the company's primary focus, the company offers an incredibly diverse bouquet of services.

Prezioso adds, "We get extensive work in the automotive sector due to our stellar reputation. Aside from our extensive Clear Bra or Paint Protection Film installation services that help protect your car's exterior paint and maintain its factory sparkle, we are also the top choice for window tinting. Our experts are frequently called to commercial buildings and private residences for specialized window tinting and security window film jobs."

With Bravo Protection Products, you can get XPEL Window Film installed on the windows at your home and office, thereby cutting out nearly 99.9% of the sun's UV rays and reducing heat absorption by up to 80%, saving you a fortune in energy costs. Lower UV exposure further helps reduce the fading of your interiors, including hardwood floors, carpets, furniture, artwork, etc.

Bravo Protection is extremely proud of reaching the milestone of 25 years in business. And we will continue to focus on providing the best products and the best service for the greater Twin Cities area for the next 25 years as well!

New Study Reveals Fibercare Cleaning Services Save Hotels Money, Energy and Contributes to Healthier Environment

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- In September 2020, Robert Mapleton, owner and engineer, RPM Energy Consulting, LLC performed an independent study at an Extended Stay America hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to determine the effect of cleaning the coils of the hotel's guestroom packaged terminal air conditioner (PTAC) units on cooling energy usage. The test was used to determine whether Fibercare PTAC cleaning service results in lower energy costs. The test was performed on four guest rooms and revealed that the hotel could actually save up to 67 percent on energy costs with cleaner air conditioning units.

Prior to the test, annual energy costs for the four rooms weighed in at $1,750. After cleaning, the cost went down to just $591, a savings of more than $1,185 for just four rooms. Why? Under-maintained PTAC units consume approximately twice as much energy to provide a comfortable environment.

"When PTAC cleaning is done the right way, the benefits it delivers really are multifaceted," Mapleton says. "Units last longer, deliver cleaner and fresher air and save large amounts of money and energy."

In addition to saving money and energy, PTAC cleaning also contributes to a healthier environment which, in times of COVID-19, and thereafter, will certainly be a benefit that consumers will seek and demand.

"In 2020, we've all experienced what it's like to wear a mask and what it feels like when we take it off - a breath of fresh air," Ashton Grudnowski, president, Fibercare says. "PTAC cleaning is a similar concept. Once the dirt and dust are removed, the unit can breathe easy again and run at optimal performance."

Grudnowski adds that now is the ideal time for hotel and retirement communities to plan a deep cleaning.

"When the time comes for people to move around more freely, they'll be ready for action," she says. "We're focused on providing quality services that are good for the environment and also hit home for the bottom line."

The country’s most successful non-partisan congressional candidate Michael Moore announces 2022 campaign

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- In 2020 Michael Moore challenged incumbent Democrat Ilhan Omar for Minnesota's fifth congressional district. Moore was the only U.S. congressional candidate in the country facing both a Republican and Democratic candidate who received more than 9% of the general election vote. Today Moore's campaign announced they will again challenge Omar.

According to the Associated Press, Moore Received 37,979 votes in 2020 (*Note 1). Moore ran with a message of helping provide professional guidance and experience for a district stricken with a serious leadership void.

Moore's stunning debut into politics is impressive, taking into account he was competing in a field of candidates who raised and spent over 20 million dollars.

As a prominent business owner-born and raised in the 5th district, the 51-year-old Moore presents a uniquely non-partisan approach to problem-solving. With a platform of honest, fair, and responsive representation for all residents in the 5th district, including inclusive positions on social justice, income, housing, and economic equality.

A historical view of the 5th district shows transformative and enlightened representation by champions of inclusive and responsible politics. Moore seeks to foster community strength through partnerships and strategic reforms while working on dialing back the counter-productive and harmful hyper-partisan extremism.

Moore says, "We must stop allowing ourselves to be willingly complicit in this fake struggle of 'us vs. them,' 'good guys vs. bad guys.' This deliberately perpetrated illusion of a 2-party political system has been forced upon us by a political tag-team which no longer holds our interests as their highest priority."

The Michael Moore for Congress campaign has a virtual and in-person campaign kickoff planned on February 5, at their South Minneapolis HQ at 4600 Chicago Ave., Minneapolis, MN 55407.
