Tips for a Successful International Cleaning Week

Check out SC Johnson Professional’s tips on raising awareness and honoring industry professionals.

March 26, 2024

In recognition of International Cleaning Week (March 24-30), SC Johnson Professional has offered a series of tips to raise public awareness of the value of cleaning and honor industry professionals.

SC Johnson Professional’s tips for promoting cleaning efforts and showing appreciation to cleaning staff include:

  1. Offer opportunities for feedback on facility cleanliness—Ask building occupants for regular feedback on the cleanliness of their facility. This will allow for issues to be addressed swiftly, and people may feel valued if they can share their priorities around facility hygiene. Establish a dedicated email address or phone number for sharing feedback and promote them throughout the facility in signage. By creating opportunities to share feedback, an organization can further demonstrate its commitment to creating a healthy facility.
  2. Communicate cleaning efforts—Educate customers on cleaning and disinfecting practices. Create logs that document each area’s cleaning schedule and post them on doors or walls, so it is highly visible. Consider promoting cleaning and disinfecting efforts on social media, wall posters, websites, and tabletop signage.
  3. Give gifts of appreciation—Show gratitude to cleaning staff by providing gifts such as a catered lunch, gift cards, or additional paid time off (PTO) days. These gestures acknowledge their dedication to upholding a facility’s hygiene standards daily.
  4. Recognize custodial staff externally—Spotlight cleaning staff on social media. For example, spotlight work anniversaries on a quarterly basis or recognize a cleaning professional who goes above and beyond in their job. This can be done via a company blog that is promoted across social media platforms.
