Industry Certification Takes Cleaning to the Next Level
Industry Certification

There are two ways businesses can look at cleaning; as a “pain-in the butt” expense that doesn’t really make a difference to their business. Or, as a investment in their business that illustrates professionalism and success.

As a member of the ISSA, we take pride in working closely with cleaning professionals from all facets of the industry to learn what value we can bring to our clients when it comes to their cleaning programs.

So, just this spring we became one of the few cleaning companies in Western Canada (if not the only) that has two ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) Certification Experts on our staff. What does that mean? Well, it means we can consult companies on how to get CIMS certified. 

CIMS is the first consensus-based management standard that outlines the primary characteristics of a successful, quality cleaning organization. Compliance with the Standard demonstrates an organization is structured to deliver consistent, quality services that are designed to meet the customer’s needs and expectations. It is a way for an organization to differentiate itself from the competition, demonstrate commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, improve their overall operations, and save money.

As well, to help meet the growing demand for green and the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, the Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and Certification Program includes “Green Building” (GB) criteria and an optional GB designation.

We recently worked with the University of Calgary Caretaking Department, helping them  achieve CIMS Certification to become a true leader among educational institutions cleaning programs.
