    As part of our commitment to continuously improve the image of the cleaning industry, the DCBN, in partnership with the Domestic Cleaning Academy have been providing free training to solo cleaners and cleaning business owners. Over the course of the last four nights, nearly 200 cleaners have taken part in an online training workshop covering not only how to clean safely during the Covid-19 pandemic, but also learning about the basic requirements needed to legally operate in the cleaning industry.

    With 60% of the attendees having had no previous training in this area, it has demonstrated how vital the support is that the Domestic Cleaning Business Network offers. We have provided comprehensive training on COSHH, PPE, Safety Data Sheets, Waste Carriers Licenses, Professional Products, Risk Assessments as well as understanding the basics about Coronavirus and safe infection control cleaning in domestic and commercial settings.

    Every session has been interactive with breakout groups and cleaners not only learning about these subjects, but forming new friendships and support networks with each other.

    It was incredibly exciting to see that the research and documents that we produced right at the start of the pandemic were featured in the National Press. 

    The DCBN launched a free guide that any cleaning professional could download and use to ensure that they were following government guidelines as well as enhanced cleaning protocols. 

    All of our research and documents are part funded through our membership subscriptions so thank you to all those that support us and the progression of the industry.

    Every day across the world, millions of cleaners go out to work to make the world a slightly cleaner place. With the onset of the Covid-19 global pandemic, cleaning has never been seen as bing as important as it is right now.

    So today, we not only want to thank every cleaner who is out there doing their bit to fight against the pandemic, but we also want to thank our members who we know have worked incredibly hard to raise their standards and ensure that their customers and staff are in the safest (and cleanest) possible hands.
