International Cleaning Week to honour cleaning professionals worldwide

International Cleaning Week to honour cleaning professionals around the world

Hosted by the ISSA, the week-long International Cleaning Week takes place 24-30 March 2024, and will be a global celebration to honour frontline cleaning professionals and advocates for the industry.

For four consecutive years, ISSA has hosted National Cleaning Week at the end of March. Based on the event’s tremendous success in the United States, this year ISSA is expanding the reach of this week-long public acknowledgment of the industry’s positive impact on the economy as well as the value of clean as it relates to improving public health.

John Barrett, ISSA Executive Director, said: “ISSA is thrilled to build on the success of National Cleaning Week by hosting the first International Cleaning Week. This expanded scope reflects the value of clean and importance of cleaning for health worldwide, as well as ISSA’s international reach.”

International Cleaning Week represents a unique opportunity to celebrate the Value of Clean, raise public awareness and honour your peers. Supporting cleaning industry companies and organisations can partner with ISSA to further spread public awareness.

On Wednesday 31 January, ISSA will host a free, one-hour webinar offering insight and ideas for organisations to leverage International Cleaning Week in their customer outreach and internal communications.Register here.

International Cleaning Week offers something for everyone, including:

  • Marketing – Use the week to increase sales for your company. Run special promotions to generate interest in your service or product while also helping to raise awareness for the importance of clean and the industry. You can also utilise the International Cleaning Week Partner Toolkit, which is packed full with template graphics, social media posts and e-newsletter language.
  • Help Make It Official – Located in the U.S.? Help ISSA by submitting a proclamation to designate an official week of cleaning for your state and/or city. ISSA has prepared a template proclamation, but needs your help submitting proclamation requests by 16 February. Help them to reach their goal of designating a cleaning week in all 50 states. If you’re interested, please contact ISSA Senior Government Affairs ManagerStacy Seiden.
  • Education – During International Cleaning Week, ISSA will offer membership and educational resource discounts as well as exclusive learning opportunities.
  • Philanthropy – Cleaning for a Reason is an ISSA Charities signature program that provides clean homes for cancer patients. International Cleaning Week is the perfect time for individuals to donate and for organisations to become corporate partners.

John Northdurft, ISSA Director of Government Affairs, commented: “ISSA would like to especially acknowledge and thank Tork, an Essity Brand, for being a Supporting Sponsor of International Cleaning Week, the exclusive sponsor of our Leveraging International Cleaning Week 2024 webinar and a Presenting Sponsor of ISSA’s 2024 Clean Advocacy Summit in Washington, D.C. All three marquee events raise the profile of our industry and would not be possible without generous sponsors like Tork.”
