Building Service Contractors Rise to Challenges From COVID-19

First article in a series detailing how the cleaning industry is uniting during a pandemic

March 24, 2020

During this COVID-19 crisis, most of you reading this right now are either under a voluntary stay at home situation or a “shelter-in-place” order. Some of you may still be working but many are not.

You, fellow industry professionals, no doubt feel frustrated, lost, maybe even anxious with what’s going on. You worry about not only your families, friends, and loved ones, you worry in a professional sense as well. You worry about the health of your business or organization, your employees or fellow employees, and you worry about those you have served faithfully for many years: Those you clean for, those you provide services for, those who you call your clients or customers.

In this time of crisis, you realize they aren’t just clients or customers. They are also friends, and like you, facing many dilemmas and predicaments about what to do.

One thing is sure: In the past few weeks, as this situation has continued to develop, our industry is coming together. It is uniting. And preparing to deal with the issues we all face and come out of this stronger and better than ever.

Read on to learn how two leaders in the contract cleaning segment of our industry are dealing with the crisis in the first part of a five-part series written by ISSA Media Editorial Director Jeff Cross on how the cleaning industry is responding to the pandemic. Then check out parts two and three; the final two will run next week.
