The primary purpose of the Cleaning Services (CSv2.0-2020) standard, is to define environmental and social performance criteria for the provision of cleaning services, in particular the environmental impacts resulting from activities undertaken by service providers. This standard is limited to activities directly controlled by the service provider without imposing requirements on the built environment.

This standard applies to general cleaning services. This includes the following categories:

๐Ÿ”˜ Domestic (household) cleaning

๐Ÿ”˜ Commercial cleaning (e.g., offices, schools, shopping centres, public buildings, outdoor and event cleaning.)

๐Ÿ”˜ Healthcare facilities cleaning as long as there is no conflict between existing policies in the healthcare facility and cleaning procedures based on GECA standard

๐Ÿ”˜ Window cleaning that can be reached without the use of any lifts (not requiring working at heights)

๐Ÿ”˜ Hard floor strip and sealing (e.g., Wooden floors, tiles, stone)

๐Ÿ”˜ Carpet cleaning (e.g., Hot water extraction, Encapsulation)
