2018 National Education Facilities Cleaning Survey

2018 National Education Facilities Cleaning Survey

Cleaning programs are a critical part of school and university efforts to provide students and staff with the opportunity to learn and work in a place that is healthy and safe. This report dives into the reasons schools implement green cleaning, the benefits they see from implementing a green cleaning program, the most widely adopted practices and their primary cleaning and maintenance concerns.


Healthy Schools Campaign and ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, surveyed schools and universities across the country to better understand what they are doing and determine the type of resources and tools schools need. We found that while almost all the schools in the survey have implemented green cleaning to some extent, their reasons, concerns and outcomes vary.
