High Gas Prices Hit Cleaning Service Companies

As National Cleaning Week (NCW) continues through April 2, CMM asked cleaning solution providers to tell us what NCW means to them and their teams and how they’re celebrating. Here’s what they had to say.

Q: What does NCW mean to you and/or your staff and how do you celebrate it?

“NCW means to ICS the opportunity to allow cleaning companies such as ours (small minority owned business) to further showcase what we do and the hard work of our staff. Often we are only told about the negative things or things that we are doing wrong or may miss during daily cleaning. It’s nice to be able to highlight all the wonderful things that our cleaning staff, day porters and janitors do with the goal of keeping our customers’ buildings sanitized and clean every day for their students, staff and employees. ”

“During NCW, one of my schools, Niagara Charter School located in Niagara Falls, New York, will be competing for the cleanest class all week to win a pizza night. We will be putting up ISSA National Cleanup Week signs and flyers throughout the school and plan to take photos for social media.

“It raises awareness of an industry that is often looked down upon by many people. It’s a necessary industry and it’s more than just emptying a trash can and vacuuming, which seems to be the stereotype.

“Blogs, social media, newsletters and websites are ways to disseminate information for promotional purposes. Being able to personally thank everyone in my organization and make sure they feel the passion I have for each of them and what they do for our business every day.

“For our team, NCW means celebrating and honoring all frontline cleaning professionals. During this pandemic, we were all pretty scared of the unknown, nevertheless, JAN-PRO’s cleaning and disinfection professionals were everywhere well prepared to go beyond the safety of facility occupants and contribute to a smooth reopening of our economy.

“As a regional franchise developer, we particularly celebrate our JAN-PRO Cleaning & Disinfecting certified franchisees. We have planned a whole week of daily activities and gifts to thank them and their cleaning teams for their excellent work. We have also encouraged our regional Chambers of Commerce to amplify NCW’s message by sharing it with the business community we serve.

“As consultants in the cleaning industry, each year NCW is a chance for our team to align our mission and purpose with the current business environment. We use this time for our annual retreat to plan sessions that guide our direction in the short and long term.

“Many of our clients celebrate NCW by having supervisors and managers work hand-in-hand with the cleaner during the week. It’s a great time to connect in a ‘whistle while you work’ way.
