Santa Ana, CA, February 15, 2017—ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, has awarded Allied Universal’s Janitorial division its Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and CIMS-Green Building (GB) certification, signifying the company delivers first-rate service in California and Arizona.

“We are proud to have earned the industry’s highest designations of quality compliance throughout our operation,” said Mark Olivas, President, Allied Universal Janitorial Services. “Our administrative processes were reviewed in detail over a three-day period and the cleanliness of the properties, as well as the inspection of the equipment and chemicals were reviewed in detail, and we passed with flying colors. It’s a huge accomplishment for our team,” Olivas continued.

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.

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.
