The Cleaning Industry Research Institute recently hosted its 2008 Cleaning Science Conference and Symposium-“Cleaning Science and Health . . . Making the Connection” at the University of Maryland campus.

More than130 representatives from all areas of cleaning science, government, healthcare, academia, manufacturing, building service contractors, facility service providers and measurement technologies participated in the three-day event.

“We were thrilled with this year’s response. The event was successful in raising awareness of the importance of cleaning through scientific research,” noted Jim Harris, Sr., CIRI chairman. “CIRI’s unique venue allowed participants to learn about the latest information and trends in cleaning science, disease transmission and mitigation research, new cleaning methods and their impact on health, hygiene and the environment.”
