The majority of Americans say either they or someone in their immediate family have been diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives. Cancer has no bias, and attacks anyone. How can the cleaning industry help when cancer attacks?

One way is through partnering with Cleaning for a Reason, an ISSA Charities™ signature program that provides clean homes for cancer patients. Since 2006, the nonprofit and its partners have donated more than US$15.2 million in services, helping more than 45,000 cancer patients.

In this episode of Straight Talk!, ISSA Media Director Jeff Cross sits down to chat with Alicia Scheel, the owner of Eco Cleaning Ohio. Scheel’s company has been a long-time supporter of the Cleaning for a Reason program. She discusses what the program means for her and her employees and how the cleaning industry can have a positive impact on those who need help the most.
