The Chairman’s Award



Clean and Simple Cleaning, Inc., Lynnwood, Washington


 In her submission, Stacie Sutton, owner of Clean and Simple Cleaning, wrote of Janet that, “Her loyalty and dedication to her job are without question. She sets high standards for herself and expects them from others. Perhaps most of all day-to-day, we value her sense of humor and her ability to remain calm in the face of catastrophe.”


Accepting the award, Janet said, “I do want to thank you for this award. I love my job and it’s easy to do a good job when you love your job.”



Professional Cleaner of the Year Presented by PerfectClean



Carnation Home Cleaning, Mesa, Arizona


“Karen is always doing everything for everybody else and never thinks of herself even nominating her for this award she was humbled. I believe she would be a deserving recipient of this award,” Eugena Bring, the owner of Carnation Home Cleaning, Inc., told the committee in her submission. During the presentation of the award, Eugena shared several testimonials from Karen’s clients, bringing tears to Karen’s eyes and the audience to their feet.


Still overwhelmed, Karen told the audience that she “felt so privileged that Eugena wanted to nominate her for this award. My customers mean the most to me.”



ISSA Honors Sardone with Jack D. Ramaley Industry Distinguished Service Award


Debbie Sardone, CEO and founder of Buckets & Bows Maid Service and founder of Cleaning For A Reason, received the Jack D. Ramaley Industry Distinguished Service Award.

The award is given by the ISSA Board to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding service to the cleaning and maintenance industry through their innovation, professionalism, leadership, elevation of industry standards, promotion of the Association’s growth and development, unselfish dedication without personal gain, and emulation of the ISSA Code of Ethics.


“This award is your award,” Debbie Sardone told the audience at the ARCSI Awards Ceremony. “This award represent what all of you have been doing for the last 10 years cleaning homes for cancer patients.”


Hartong Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary with ARCSI


 One highlight of the Evening Roundtables this year was the recognition of Ernie Hartong as the ARCSI Executive Director for 10 years. Presenting was Residential Cleaning Council Chair RJ Patel, who told the audience that without Ernie’s leadership and dedication, the residential community would not be where it is today. With a standing ovation, the audience unanimously agreed with Patel.
