First released in 1963, this invaluable resource has been recently 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 specialized 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.

In recognition of ISSA’s century-long commitment to excellence in the cleaning industry, The Official ISSA Cleaning Times 8th 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.

An excellent opportunity to own a piece of the cleaning industry’s history, this one-of-a-kind publication is only available for a limited time and would make a tremendous gift for your employees and customers, points out ISSA.
