NORTHBROOK, Ill.—March 25, 2021—In this Industry Alert with Jeff Cross, Brant Insero, Director of Education, Certification, and Standards for ISSA, previews the newly updated ISSA Cleaning Times and Tasks. First released in 1963, this cleaning industry resource has been updated upon industry demand, with the most recent revision in 2014. ISSA is proud to announce the 2021 Cleaning Times and Tasks, the cleaning industry’s most trusted tasks, tools and work loading resource available today.
The latest update is a year and a half in the making with ISSA gathering data and feedback from industry experts and members. The manual will include a pandemic cleaning times section that highlights new cleaning technologies, such as electrostatic sprayers and disinfecting units. The update will also break down cleaning times by industry segment, recognizing that cleaning times for a healthcare facility may be significantly different from those of a correctional or educational facility. Additionally, the manual delves into cleaning vocabulary to clear up commonly misused terms (like interchanging sanitizing and disinfecting, which have distinct meanings), updates information around robotics and automation, and removes outdated material.
The ISSA Cleaning Times and Tasks manual is a comprehensive industry resource that is valuable for distributors to evaluate and sell cleaning equipment, for contractors to bid and estimate jobs, and for in-house service professionals to guide planning and staffing. “Work loading is a key component to a cleaning system design for any organization, and the most important piece of this is labor because that is the most controllable expense that any organization has,” Insero explains.
