Clean For A Reason

Cleaning for a Reason logoThe American Cleaning Institute® (ACI) is a proud supporter of the Cleaning For A Reason™ Foundation and their work to sustain cleanliness for women undergoing treatment for cancer. "A clean home environment is important. It is even more important to women with cancer," says Nancy Bock, VP Consumer Education and Board member of the Cleaning For A Reason Foundation. We want women to focus on their health, while the cleaning services focus on their homes. That is why ACI has partnered with this group to help educate the public about the vital link between health and hygiene. We are doing our part to help families sustain cleanliness when loved ones are undergoing treatment, and we hope you will too.

Help the Cause
We are urging everyone to make it a point to learn more about this organization and participate at some level.

  • If you employ a residential cleaning service to take care of your home, download this bookmark to share with them, and encourage them to visit or call (877) 337-3348.
  • If you are a professional residential maid service who is insured and bonded, participate in the foundation. Your company must agree to take two patients at a time and offer four free general cleanings – one a month for four months as a way to give back to your community. For more information, fill out the online form and a representative for Cleaning For A Reason will contact you.
  • If you are a concerned individual, a small monthly donation will sponsor a maid service and two cancer patients per month. There are also donation options for those who wish to sponsor more cleaning visits per month. Visit for details.
  • If you are a business or professional organization, you can become a Friend of the Foundation through the Corporate Sponsor Program.
  • If you are a cancer patient in need of cleaning services, visit

With more partners, more patients will be served.
