Our Elite Employee Training Program Builds the Best Cleaning Crew in the Business

Training is not just a buzzword at Imperial Cleaning. We make our employee training program a priority to improve the effectiveness and quality of every one of our cleaning crews. You will always receive ISSA-certified and insured employees when you hire our services. (ISSA is the Top education and training certification for the cleaning industry.) Extensive training covering the newest and most effective cleaning techniques is how we accomplish our #1 task: to make your facility or environment clean and healthy.

Phase One: Safety and OSHA Standards

The Imperial Cleaning employee training program prepares our cleaners to provide quality service for both commercial and residential customers. 

Our top priority is safety first. All cleaners are trained on OSHA standards and regulations before starting their job assignment. The OSHA training program educates our employees about safety and health hazards and how to safely clean and disinfect homes or facilities. All OSHA courses are taught by our training and development specialist, who is a certified OSHA instructor.

  • Our cleaning crews receive instruction about a variety of industry topics, including:
  • Details on the new Color-Coded Cleaning Standards
  • References to the latest OSHA Regulations for Disinfection and Decontamination
  • References to the latest OSHA Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Chemical Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
  • References to the new EPA Guidelines for disinfectants
  • References to Green Standards and U.S. GBC's LEED-EB program 6

Phase Two: Elite Cleaning Techniques

Our employee training program consists of extensive cleaning industry instruction. We offer specific training for each type of cleaning unit, rather than a one-size-fits-all program. Our employees receive ISSA Custodial Advanced Training. This course teaches the frontline cleaning procedures in the CMI Basic (daily maintenance) and Advanced (project work). Through interactive group activities, our cleaning professionals gain technical skills and understand how to implement ISSA procedures, tailored specifically to each type of job.
