Thank Your Cleaner Day 17th October 2018
Be part of the Thank Your Cleaner Day and say “Thank You!” to the hard working people responsible for your safe and clean workplace
What is the Thank Your Cleaner day?
The Thank Your Cleaner Day is a special day once a year dedicated to all cleaners. Together with local partners from the participating countries, Kärcher wants to take the opportunity to thank the people who keep workplaces and public buildings clean, safe and hygienic. On this day, October 19th 2016, office workers can let their cleaning staff know they recognize and value their work.
Thus, the Thank Your Cleaner Day is a chance to say “Thank You!” for everyone working in a facility that is cleaned by professional cleaners. This could be office buildings, factories or public buildings like schools. People can thank their cleaner by leaving them a note, giving them a little gift or just saying “Thank you!”

Where does the Thank Your Cleaner day come from?
In 2015 it was conducted for the first time in New Zealand by the local trade organization for Building Services Contractors (BSCNZ) in cooperation with Kärcher. BSCNZ has a strong network with the companies who provide professional cleaning services in the workplace area. Thus, through their engagement, word about the Thank Your Cleaner Day was spread widely and the Thank Your Cleaner day was a great success.In 2017 BSCNZ CEO Lillian Small has been recognised for her effort in celebrating the unsung heroes of the cleaning industry at the “Cleaning for a Brighter Future” conference.
Together with similar local partners from participating countries, the Thank Your Cleaner Day should now be established on a global level. They want to recognize the hard working cleaners around the world, who often work outside office hours and therefore out of sight.
