Monday's Ask the Experts: Cleaning colleges

January 5, 2009
Monday''s Ask the Experts question from a cleaning professional on the International Custodial Advisors Network (ICAN) "Ask the Experts" page: I am looking for benchmarking information and metrics for the cleaning of college and university housing. (Apartments and residence halls)
The answer
The ISSA has published a manual with more than 400 cleaning standards that can provide you with benchmark data for surfaces. I find that engineering the cleaning (documenting all surfaces that are cleaned, establishing cleaning frequencies and using safe cleaning methods) is a reliable method for arriving at cleaning standards.
