Steelo Achieves CIMS-GB Certification

July 2, 2019 Steelo Achieves CIMS-GB Certification

Steelo LLC has successfully completed certification to the ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and CIMS-Green Building (CIMS-GB).

Compliance with the standard shows that a cleaning organization has the systems in place to deliver consistent, professional services designed to meet customer needs and expectations and is prepared to deliver a comprehensive green-cleaning program based on LEED EB: O&M green cleaning criteria. CIMS and CIMS-GB certification are required in many cleaning service bid specifications as customers look for an effective way to identify high-quality providers committed to customer satisfaction.

“CIMS and CIMS-GB enable us to keep our commitment to our clients,” says Rhonda Taylor, Steelo CEO. “Our commitment is the presentation, the protection, and preservation of our clients’ most valued assets.”

Independent, accredited assessors verify CIMS and CIMS-GB certified firms meet the industry standard for:

  • Quality systems
  • Service delivery
  • Human resources
  • Health, safety, and environmental stewardship
  • Management commitment
  • Green building.

Recently, CIMS-GB became a direct compliance option to meet the green-cleaning policy prerequisite of Version 4 of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) revised Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED EB: O&M) rating system.

“The CIMS-GB certification is such a rigorous process through third party assessment,” says Taylor. “The process ensured that Steelo is committed to providing an effective quality operational management system to every client.”
