ISSA has acquired the Cleanfax brand, including the flagship print publication Cleanfax magazine, the Cleanfax Insider, Restoration Insider, and all other media assets, from Grand View Media Group. (ISSA acquired the assets of Cleaning & Maintenance Management magazine,, CM e-News Daily, and Cleaning Management Institute from Grand View Media Group in September 2014.)

For more than 30 years, Cleanfax has been the trusted source for cleaning and restoration professionals, and in alignment with ISSA’s business philosophy and values, features information designed to help readers manage and grow their businesses.

“The professionals involved in the carpet cleaning and disaster restoration industry are an extension of the cleaning industry, and as the leading cleaning industry association in the world, we felt the need to continue delivering the valuable resources Cleanfax has provided,” said John Barrett, executive director of ISSA. “It’s a natural fit as we continue to deliver on our brand promise of changing the way the world views cleaning and to unite the cleaning industry.”

ISSA plans to restore the magazine and digital offerings in early 2017, and Cleanfax will continue as the leading information resource for the combined carpet cleaning and disaster restoration industries. Jeff Cross, the executive editor of Cleanfax, will continue to manage the editorial component of the Cleanfax brand, which will produce a quality mix of digital, print, online, and social media products under ISSA ownership.
