Reinvigorating Spaces and Minds — Our Call to Action for International Cleaning Week 2024

We’re thrilled to share that we’ll be joining forces with ISSA, the Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association, to celebrate International Cleaning Week from March 24-30, 2024. This week serves as a poignant reminder of the crucial role the cleaning industry plays in maintaining safe and healthy environments for both workers and customers alike.

The theme of this year’s International Cleaning Week resonates deeply with our core values at Excel Facility Services Group. It provides us with a unique opportunity to celebrate the value of clean, honor our fellow cleaning industry professionals, and elevate public awareness about our industry’s unwavering commitment to health and safety standards.

The Imperative of Cleanliness in Today’s World

In the current era, where health has become a paramount concern for businesses worldwide, the significance of maintaining cleanliness cannot be overstated. Research has demonstrated that the combination of cleaning and disinfection of surfaces, alongside proper hand hygiene, can reduce virus concentrations by an astounding 85.4%. This statistic alone underscores cleanliness as an indispensable daily essential, not just for health but also for instilling confidence in the spaces where we work and interact.

Moreover, the meticulous cleaning and maintenance of facilities serve a dual purpose. Not only does it ensure the well-being of occupants, but it also preserves facility assets, thereby reducing operational costs and enhancing the overall appearance of the premises.

Absenteeism due to illness represents a substantial financial burden on businesses, costing billions each year. By adopting rigorous cleaning and hygiene practices, companies can mitigate the spread of illness, thereby supporting workforce productivity and continuity.

It is also important to note that cleanliness plays a decisive role in customer retention. A staggering 92% of customers consider cleanliness a critical factor when deciding on repeat patronage. This statistic highlights the direct correlation between the perception of cleanliness and business success.
