On Oct. 8, 2020, MaidCentral founder Tom Stewart met with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) representatives to discuss COVID-19 guidance for the cleaning industry. 

For Stewart, being a leader in the cleaning industry is nothing new. Stewart is a past president of the Association of Residential Cleaning Services International (ARCSI), co-founder of the industry trade magazine Cleaning Business Today, founder at Castle Keepers House Cleaning in Charleston, SC, and owner and instructor at Cleaning Business Builders. 

“We’ve worked hard to professionalize the cleaning industry,” said Stewart. “It is an honor that our clients, our community, and now OSHA, recognize MaidCentral as an authority on professional home cleaning.” 

During the OSHA meeting, Stewart expressed concern over access to appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and necessary cleaning products, and discussed different federal, state, and local COVID-19 guidelines.
