Thursday Treats – National Cleaning Week 3/31

Happy National Cleaning Week! ISSA – the International Sanitary Supply Association – coordinates this week-long event during the 4th week of March to “celebrate the value and importance of clean environments on public health, the environment, and our economy. Having a whole week designated to the importance of cleaning, allows us to raise public awareness for the value of clean AND to show appreciation for cleaning professionals.” (source) You can learn more about National Cleaning Week and which locations across the USA have made NCW official at the ISSA website.
