The Association of Residential Cleaning Services, International (ARCSI), a division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, named the winners of its Professional Image Awards, which recognizes excellence in the residential cleaning industry.
The ARCSI Chairman’s Award represents the importance of quality, professional office staff in residential cleaning companies worldwide. This year’s recipient is Nikki Irwin of The Cleaning Pros
“Nikki’s dedication and professionalism has helped The Cleaning Pros continue to grow ﬁnancially and has helped each employee grow individually,” said Chuck Terpstra, owner of The Cleaning Pros in Odessa, Florida. “Personally, she has grown from an office assistant three years ago to general manager today because of her hard work and determination. She is dedicated to make the Cleaning Pros both a ﬁnancial success and a premier place to work.”

The PerfectClean Professional Cleaner of the Year Award is given annually to recognize a cleaning technician who represents excellence, professionalism and integrity in the profession. This year’s recipient is Irene Trujillo of Helping Hands Maid Services.
Gosia Baran, owner of Helping Hands Maid Services in Elmhurst, Illinois, proudly nominated Trujillo for this award for going above and beyond time and again on the job.
“Many times, she puts in 60 hours a week because we are in a bind with last minute calls, or to cover for someone who had to leave early,” Baran says. “On one occasion, she even cancelled her planned vacation because we had too much work and not enough employees. What commitment on her part!”
Awards will be presented during ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America 2017, which takes place September 11-14.
