Residential Cleaners Recognize Award Winners at ISSA/INTERCLEAN® Annual Trade Show

Northbrook, IL, October 19, 2017 --( ARCSI (Association of Residential Cleaning Services International), A Division of ISSA, presented its 2017 Professional Image Awards recognizing excellence in the residential cleaning industry.

ARCSI, the residential cleaning arm of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, held its annual Residential Cleaning Awards Ceremony during the recent ISSA/INTERCLEAN® North America 2017 in Las Vegas, NV.

Chairman’s Award Winner
Nikki Irwin, The Cleaning Pros, Odessa, FL
The ARCSI Chairman’s Award recognizes an internal staff person who personifies the importance of quality, professional office staff in residential cleaning companies worldwide.

Chuck Terpstra, owner of The Cleaning Pros, finds Irwin’s presence at the company invaluable.

“Nikki’s dedication and professionalism has helped The Cleaning Pros continue to grow financially and has helped each employee grow individually,” Terpstra said. “In three years, she has grown from an office assistant to general manager due to her hard work and determination. She is dedicated to making The Cleaning Pros both a financial success and a premier place to work.”

PerfectClean Professional Cleaner of the Year
Irene Trujillo, Helping Hands Cleaning Services, Elmhurst, IL
The PerfectClean Professional Cleaner of the Year Award is given annually to recognize a residential cleaning technician that represents excellence, professionalism, and integrity in the field.

Gosia Baran, owner of Helping Hands Maid Services in Elmhurst, IL, proudly nominated Trujillo for this award for exceeding expectations time and again on the job. “Many times, she puts in 60 hours a week because we’re in a bind with last-minute calls, or to cover for someone who had to leave early,” Baran said. “On one occasion, she even cancelled her planned vacation because we had too much work and not enough employees. What commitment on her part!”
