In 2007, the International Sanitary Supply Association (ISSA) approached 20 leading janitorial companies and asked them to join their efforts in setting an industry standard that would elevate janitorial companies to a measurable level of excellence.
IH Services was one of those 20 companies that led the efforts to develop and adopt these standards and has been awarded the CIMS with Honors certification as well as the CIMS-Green Building with Honors for achieving a standard far beyond the basic certification.
Out of 75,000 Service Providers……only 141 have achieved the CIMS Certification. Even fewer have the Certification with Honors... IH Services’ Certification with Honors places us in the top one-half of one percent of janitorial service providers
BSCAI — CBSE & RBSM
IH Services requires all members of our management team to be certified by the Building Service Contractors Association International (BSCAI) in either the Certified Building Services Executive (CBSE) or the Registered Building Service Manager (RBSM) certification programs.
The CBSE designation indicates an executive has a complete understanding of cleaning technology and also a broad business and management expertise to ensure that your building’s maintenance needs are met smoothly and cost-effectively.
The RBSM certification represents a cleaning professional that maintains a thorough knowledge of the latest technology, understands the most effective methods of managing people, equipment and supplies and has the ability to successfully supervise the daily maintenance of your building.
Currently we have 11 CBSEs and 14 RBSMs.
