Blue Cleaning

ISSA CIMS Certified with Honors

The Face of Facilities


ARAMARK Higher Education goes BEYOND traditional cleaning and janitorial services, combining science and art to deliver superior performance and environments.

Providing superior technical services — the science of cleaning — isn't just something we say about ourselves. Our industry-leading position is recognized by ISSA — the worldwide cleaning industry association — as the first, and currently only company exclusively serving higher education, to earn the coveted CIMS (Cleaning Industry Management Standards) Certification and CIMS-Green Building Certification, both with honors. We also comply with LEED-EB, LEED-O&M, as well as AASHE STARS program certifications, which automatically secures the "High Performance Cleaning Credit" for LEED EBOM certification.

Our focus on innovative facility maintenance service excellence has taken us BEYOND green cleaning to our Blue Cleaning Program — the ultimate in environmentally friendly cleaning. This unique approach is scientifically proven to support health, wellness and environmental stewardship, using Electrically Activated Water (EAW) from the tap, achieving cleaning that equals or exceeds what is achieved with chemical-based programs. Blue cleaning eliminates the need for expensive products, harmful chemicals, and unnecessary packaging, while yielding better results. As well, it is the safest form of cleaning for custodians to promote employees' well being.

Our custodial program does not end with superior technical service. We understand that we're in the business of people serving people. All of our custodial staff receives hospitality training — the art of customer service — to create higher customer satisfaction and employee growth.

Coupling this innovation and expertise with the knowledge we have earned by serving more campuses than any other facility services company, creates comfortable, ideal living and learning environments and protects the environment.

We are so confident in our ability to be the best that we develop superior measurable goals that are unique to each of our clients and guarantee that we will meet them.

Everything we do is guided by our passion to be holistic stewards of the environment. For us environmental stewardship is beyond a program, it is a way of doing business that touches all parts of our program. Our industry leading Green Thread® operations ensure that your campus will have the most practical, advanced, environmentally sensitive solutions available. As well, we engage customers to create a campus community that changes its habits and attitudes toward the environment.
