History of International Cleaning Week

International Cleaning Week celebrates the importance, value, and positive impact that cleaning has on public health, the environment, and the economy. This week also offers the perfect opportunity to raise public awareness for the value of clean spaces, appreciate cleaning professionals, promote cleaning organizations, and advocate for the cleaning industry.

The International Sanitary Supply Association (ISSA), the worldwide cleaning industry association, uses International Cleaning Week to promote the importance of cleanliness, provide education and training, and raise the profile of the cleaning industry. ISSA also sees the week as a channel to publicize numerous means to engage and explore educational opportunities, support charitable causes for the benefit of the cleaning industry, and more.

Maintaining a clean environment helps to lower the spread of viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens that cause diseases and trigger allergic reactions. It also prevents the growth of mold in our living spaces. Furthermore, a clean space is closely associated with improved moods, decreased stress levels, and enhanced productivity. Following an experiment in 2013, the Association for Psychological Science concluded that students were more likely to make healthier choices and participate in philanthropic causes after they were exposed to a clean room. International Cleaning Week provides the opportunity to enjoy these psychological benefits and much more. It is also a week to discard winter essentials, declutter, and tidy up our homes to welcome a fresh start with spring.
