The Development of ISSA Cleaning Standards for K-12

issa cleaning standards
  1. The determination of what level of cleanliness may be reasonably achieved in a given space.
  2. The best recommendations for monitoring and inspecting to measure whether a space is “clean.” These recommendations include the use of both more traditional and physical measures, such as touch, sight, and smell, as well as more quantitative measures, such as ATP monitoring, which is a rapid testing method that can be used to assess the cleanliness of food and beverage processors.
  3. A series of actions a cleaning organization can follow in order to use the results of the above to evaluate and enhance the cleaning processes. The goal of this area is to continue to create and maintain safe and healthy environments for both staff and students.

As you may note, the ISSA cleaning standards don’t just choose or highlight one specific type of cleaning product or one specific type of cleaning process. This is because of varying K-12 facilities can be. You are not going to get a Kindergarten classroom to the same type of clean as you would a high school music room. So rather, the ISSA cleaning standards aim to provide the best systematic approaches a team can undergo in order to achieve the best-desired level of cleanliness (and how to measure that cleanliness) in a given area.
