New edition developed as a collaborative effort by members and industry.

ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, has announced the 100th Anniversary Limited Edition of The Official ISSA Cleaning Times: The Cleaning Industry’s Most Trusted Tasks, Tools & Workloading Resource has been recently updated and is available for preorder.

First released in 1963, this invaluable resource has been updated upon industry demand from its previous revision in 2021, providing the average cleaning times for both individual tasks as well as bundled processes.

This new eighth edition was developed as a collaborative effort with ISSA members to add practical real-world information submitted by both manufacturers and end users.

The updated Cleaning Times features a glossary of common cleaning terms as well as sections inclusive of ISSA’s entire membership with specialised industry-specific segments for the transportation, retail, residential, educational, hospitality, and correctional facility markets.

In addition to revised and expanded cleaning times, this latest version includes new equipment data for using walk-behind vacuum units, autoscrubbers, and microscrubbers.

“ISSA is viewed as the industry’s leading resource for productivity rates revolving around industry equipment and tools,” said ISSA chief global education officer, Brant Insero.

“We are so excited to launch the newest version of the ISSA Cleaning Times this year.”

In recognition of ISSA’s century-long commitment to the industry, The Official ISSA Cleaning Times Eighth Edition is available in a limited 100th anniversary version.

This exclusive publication comes with a hard cover celebrating the cleaning industry, a special message from ISSA, and a commemorative notepad and pen.

“It is with immense enthusiasm that I extend my heartiest congratulations to the entire cleaning industry, esteemed ISSA members, and the dedicated ISSA Cleaning Times team as we embark on a momentous journey with the launch of our 100th Anniversary Limited Edition,” said ISSA executive director, John Barrett.
