July 23, 2012

COLLEGE PARK, MD — The Chemical Free Cleaning Network (CFCN), in partnership with the University of Maryland’s department of residential facilities and building services at College Park and Cleaning and Maintenance Management magazine, is pleased to announce the addition of more speakers and exhibitors to its second Chemical-Free Cleaning Network Conference and Expo taking place September 18-19, 2012, according to a press release.

"The enthusiastic response to our first expo at NOVA University last winter confirmed our hunch: Professionals are hungry for alternative ways to clean, sanitize and disinfect sustainably," said Vince Elliott of Elliott and Affiliates Ltd., and founder of the Chemical-Free Cleaning Network.

"At the conclusion of the event, virtually all attendees I spoke to asked when the next Expo would take place. Well, it''s now scheduled and attendees can expect even more speakers, better case studies and the newest innovations and technologies to help them continue — and in some cases even start — the journey to chemical-free," Elliot added.

According to the release, at the Expo, members of the cleaning industry, contractors, facilities and real estate managers, attendees, as well as interested members of the general public, will experience informative presentations by even more innovative leaders, including:

• Tommy Little, manager of building services for the Georgia Institute of Technology facilities department
• Anne Steinmann, professor of civil and environmental engineering and of public affairs at University of Washington
• Rex Morrison, president of the non-profit Process Cleaning for Healthy Schools (PCHS) Consortium Inc.
• Dr. Robert Powitz, forensic sanitarian
• Ruben Rives, owner of Miami-based H2Only Renewable Cleaning.

The registration fee to attend the two-day conference is $109 at the door or $79 online in advance; members of the Chemical-Free Cleaning Network can attend the conference for just $20, the release noted.
