Exodus is a Registered Environmental Services Executive and member of ISSA-The World Cleaning Association and promotes “Changing the Way the World Views Clean” mission. The building cleaning industry can be both rewarding and exciting and can offer those who work hard the opportunity for advancement. Further, while it may initially seem as if cleaning service workers are responsible for simply making sure floors are shiny, carpets are vacuumed and the trash has been taken out, cleaning service workers have a much more important responsibility – making sure buildings provide a healthy indoor environment for occupants.

Cleaning for Health-Cleaning for health is a widely-accepted cleaning approach that protects public health, without adversely affecting the health of staff, building occupants, or the environment. Traditionally, Cleaning has been focused on making sure that buildings look and smell good.

Defenders of Public Health- Our goal is shift the mindsets of cleaning professionals and their leadership from “cleaning for appearance” to “cleaning for health.” As this better defines the Custodial/Housekeeper’s true role as a cleaning professional and highlights their responsibility in protecting public health. Although Cleaning Professionals have the responsibility to ensure the building looks good but, much more importantly, the responsibility to remove dirt and harmful contaminants that are likely to make people sick. Therefore, all cleaners should be properly thought of as a “public health defender.”

Exodus champions the elevation of Cleaning personnel through training and development. It is the understanding that cleaning professionals world-wide play a significant role in protecting public health. By learning the science behind cleaning, staff are better equipped in effectively responding to stain removal, odor elimination, and removal of disease-causing pathogens.

Our value proposition is: “Cleaning for Health, Not Shine.”

Exodus provides cost-effective training to assist organizations in the implementation of a Cleaning For Health program. Exodus’s goal is to improve cleaning outcomes through:

  • Science of Clean curriculum
  • Work loading instruments using ISSA Cleaning Times and APPA Standards
  • Program standardization
  • Streamline chemical inventory
  • Equipment recommendations
  • Quality control mechanism

Exodus advocates membership into the International Executive Housekeepers Association (IEHA), and becoming a Registered or Certified Executive Housekeeper. Certified cleaning professionals are subject matter experts (SME) who can articulate the proper investment in cleaning products or services and calculate the financial benefits they provide.
