“The clients we work with have high standards, and this certification helps us communicate to them that we are able to meet and exceed their standards of excellence." Rachel Sanchez, Prestige Maintenance USA CEO
PLANO, Texas (PRWEB) March 02, 2020
ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, announced today that Prestige Maintenance USA achieved ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and CIMS-Green Building (GB) certification.
Compliance with the standard shows that a cleaning organization has the systems in place to deliver consistent, professional services designed to meet customer needs and expectations and is prepared to deliver a comprehensive green cleaning program based on LEED EB: O&M green cleaning criteria. CIMS and CIMS-GB certification are required in many cleaning service bid specifications as customers look for an effective way to identify high-quality providers committed to customer satisfaction.
“The clients we work with have high standards, and this certification helps us communicate to them that we are able to meet and exceed their standards of excellence. Our processes and procedures ensure that every team member across the country can deliver for our clients, including LEED EB green cleaning criteria,” says Rachel Sanchez, CEO of Prestige Maintenance USA.
Independent, accredited assessors verify CIMS and CIMS-GB certified firms meet the industry standard for:
- Quality systems
- Service delivery
- Human resources
- Health, safety, and environmental stewardship
- Management commitment
- Green Building
Recently, CIMS-GB became a direct compliance option to meet the green cleaning policy prerequisite of Version 4 of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) revised Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED EB: O&M) rating system.
“Our use of technology and analytics gives us an edge in maintaining our high standards. Our clients get access to monthly inspections online in addition to the ability to communicate changes or needs to us. We know that our reputation depends on reliability and excellence, and we take it very seriously,” according to Jason Dinverno, Managing Partner and COO at Prestige Maintenance USA.

About CIMS and CIMS-GB
The ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and CIMS-Green Building (CIMS-GB) set forth a management framework designed to assist building service contractors and in-house cleaning departments to develop and maintain quality, customer-focused organizations, capable of delivering a comprehensive green cleaning program based on LEED EB: O&M green cleaning criteria. The standard is nonprescriptive, meaning that each organization has the flexibility to choose the most effective ways in which to meet its requirements. CIMS and CIMS-GB were created through a true consensus-based process that brought together representatives of the cleaning, facilities management, and purchasing communities. ISSA speaks at numerous facility management and purchasing industry events throughout the year to outline the value of working with CIMS and CIMS-GB certified cleaning companies, as well as certifying in-house operations.
