European Cleaning Days: Spreading the benefits of professional cleaning - partners are invited to join
EUnited Cleaning, with the support of the European Federation of Cleaning Industries (EFCI) and the International Association for Soaps, Detergents & Maintenance Products (A.I.S.E) is launching a campaign called the European Cleaning Days (ECD).
This campaign aims to highlight the importance and benefits of professional cleaning in places such as offices, hospitals, airports, train stations, etc and it will be starting in May 2015.
The mission of the ECD is to combine the existing cleaning events and organise new ones to educate the public about the importance of professional cleaning for public health, comfort and wellbeing. Events will be held in many countries including Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, and will potentially involve people of various age groups and professions in activities ranging from exhibitions, workshops, visits to schools with lectures, to cleaning in action on public streets and squares.
The campaign will focus on the following areas of the professional cleaning industry:
- Detergents for cleaning and disinfection
- Floor and high pressure cleaning: Buildings, business premises, and production sites
- Municipal equipment: Mobile machines used in municipalities and other public areas
- Cleaning contractors
Interested parties are welcome to contact the organisers and use the opportunity to achieve greater publicity and reach out to the public through the ECD campaign. Information about the campaign, its partners and event submission can be found at www.cleaningdays.eu
