(DALLAS — June 5, 2015) Prestige Maintenance USA is proud to announce that ISSA, an international association for the cleaning, maintenance and janitorial industries, awarded the company re-certifications in Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and CIMS-Green Building (CIMS-GB). The first consensus-based management standard for businesses in the cleaning industry, the CIMS recertification indicates PMUSA’s dedication to exceeding clients’ expectations for safety, efficiency, quality and environmental impact.

“What you’re getting when you hire a CIMS-certified vendor is a partner that’s focused on the customer by using a management framework that’s designed to deliver stellar service all across the board,” says PMUSA CEO Rachel Sanchez. “CIMS offers a truly holistic evaluation of how well we perform.”

ISSA added the elite CIMS-GB certification in response to the growing demand for LEED certification. Facilities seeking LEED certification can satisfy some of the requirements by hiring a CIMS-GB certified cleaning service provider. PMUSA is one of less than 2% of companies in the industry to earn the elite designation.

“Stewardship is an essential part of our company culture, from supporting local charities to minimizing our environmental impact,” says Sanchez. “The CIMS-GB certification highlights our organization-wide commitment to environmentally sustainable operation.”
