Independent Cleaning Quality Inspections

Our Independent Cleaning Quality Inspections (i-CQI) are an additional service offered by BICSc and are designed to ensure an organisation is receiving a high-quality standard of cleaning service.

BICSc is currently the only organisation with licensed inspectors to carry out an i-CQI, and we are now able to offer this service to our customers and Corporate Members.

Please note this is not a training course but an additional service to inspect the quality of cleaning services.

Who is an i-CQI for ?

An i-CQI is suitable for any single or multi-site organisation with a cleaning operation which would like to understand what the current cleaning standards are, and what areas should be improved.

Why should I get an i-CQI ?

An i-CQI is a great way to assure your customers of the quality of your cleaning operations making your business stand out from the competition as well as adding value to your tender documents.
It is proven in facilities where Independent Quality Cleaning Inspections are carried out regularly, that the quality of the cleaning improves and this can also help to motivate cleaning operatives to improve on previous standards.

How is an i-CQI assessed ?

Our certified inspectors carry out the cleaning inspection using a quality measuring system for cleaning services based on the BS en 13549 the ‘European Quality Measurement Standard for Cleaning Services’.

Our Inspectors visit your site to conduct a visual inspection of your daily cleaning operation, this highlights any training requirements for the cleaning operatives and we will recommend appropriate BICSc accredited training if required.
