At ISSA, IEHA Unveils ‘Clean and Healthy Schools for Dummies’

WESTERVILLE, OH -- The International Executive Housekeepers Association is unveiling Clean and Healthy Schools For Dummies at ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America 2010 in Orlando, FL this week.

Authored by Dr. David Mudarri, former senior scientist with the U.S. EPA, Clean and Healthy Schools For Dummies is a 48-page pocket-sized handbook designed to assist both K-12 and higher education facilities to develop and maintain healthy schools.

This latest of IEHA’s For Dummies books helps explain how to achieve a cost-effective cleaning and maintenance program resulting in a healthy, high-efficiency school that boosts attendance as well as student and staff performance,” said Beth Risinger, CEO and Executive Director of IEHA. “It also encourages IEHA members and the cleaning industry at large to explore modern cleaning technologies such as activated water, steam vapor cleaning, and newer floor and restroom cleaning machines among other innovations.”

Clean and Healthy Schools For Dummies shows how to identify indoor pollutants and remove them, how to make a scientific case for cleaning and maintaining schools, and how to get community support for a healthy schools program,” adds the author, David Mudarri, Ph.D.

The title follows on the heels of the success of Infection Control For Dummies, by Darrel Hicks, REH (now in its second printing as Infection Prevention For Dummies). Both books will be available at ISSA/INTERCLEAN at IEHA Booths 3783 and 3874.

Clean and Healthy Schools For Dummies is sponsored by the Healthy Schools Campaign (HSC) and Activeion Cleaning Solutions.

IEHA gratefully acknowledges their generous support of this valuable educational resource.
