Do you see the cleaning industry as low skilled and low paid? Do you think anyone can wield a mop or push a vacuum around, after all you do it at home?
This view of the cleaning industry has been proven to vastly underplay the importance of the cleaning sector.
In 2015, the total market value in Europe of the household care and professional cleaning sector was estimated to be in excess of 35 billion euros and the sector employs millions of people.
Awards have been set up in the sector to celebrate excellence and businesses are investing heavily in training and development.
Focus is put on customer service and training employees to ensure every customer has a positive service experience and diverse training solutions are being introduced all the time.
All this only shows that people in the industry clearly take pride in their profession and quite rightly so.
The ambition and professionalism of the industry is too easily dismissed so with a new year approaching it’s a good time to take a fresh approach and look at the industry differently. Look beneath the surface being cleaned and who knows what you might find.
