Out of 75000 service providers in the US, only 141 have achieved the CIMS certification with honors.

Why IH Services

We take our commitment to you seriously... and our CIMS certification proves it.

IH Services' certification with honors places us in the top one-half of one percent of janitorial services.

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.

IH Services is committed to the six quality principles of well-managed, successful janitorial.

How Our CIMS and CIMS-GB Certifications Benefit You

When we’re hiring a cleaning company, we are dedicated to go out and look at as many companies as possible. If we look at 100 and 95 of them are not CIMS-certified, that’s 95 bidders I can cross off my list before I go any further, says Senior Master Sgt. Mark Gyure of Andrews Air Force Base

  • CIMS enables us to cut costs associated with poor efficiency and service and allows us to pass along service improvements and savings to our customers.
