ARCSI Recognizes 2017 Award Winners

The Association of Residential Cleaning Services, International (ARCSI), a Division of ISSA, presented its Professional Image Awards recognizing excellence in the residential cleaning industry during ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America 2017. The awards were presented during the ARCSI Awards Ceremony on the ISSA/INTERCLEAN trade show floor, September 13.

Chairman’s Award
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.

Chuck Terpstra, owner of The Cleaning Pros in Odessa, FL, finds Nikki’s presence at the company invaluable. “Nikki’s dedication and professionalism has helped The Cleaning Pros continue to grow financially and has helped each employee grow individually,” Terpstra says. “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.”

Professional Cleaner of the Year Presented by PerfectClean
The PerfectClean Professional Cleaner of the Year Award is given annually to recognize a cleaning technician that 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, IL, 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!”
