For the UK Cleaning Industry

The CSSA Awards in association with the Cleaning Show and supported by C & M Magazine is a joint initiative to acknowledge and reward excellence and effectiveness across many sectors of the UK Contract Cleaning Industry. These Awards have been developed to recognise everything that shines within the UK cleaning sector – great products, great systems, great contractors, and great individuals. The strength of the awards is that they are run for the industry, by the industry and voted for by industry experts.

Genesis Biosciences win Contract Innovation Award 2019

Their ground-breaking ‘Evogen Professional’ range uses beneficial bacteria and eco-benign chemistry instead of traditional harsh chemicals, which benefits the environment and importantly reduces the risks for cleaning operatives. We’d like to give thanks to David Garcia, Vice President & treasurer CHSA, who judged this Award.

Robertson Facilities Management win Corporate Social Responsibility Award 2019

Entrants do not need to be members of the CSSA or any other UK industry association – they simply need to be UK based and have an interest in the UK cleaning sector, and the desire to see its continued development and improvement.

There are four awards that you can apply for; Contract Innovation, Corporate Social Responsibility, Environmental & Sustainability, and Training. An organisation can apply for each category award, however the same submission may be entered into a maximum of two categories only. It’s not too early to start thinking about applying for the CSSA Awards 2021! This is an opportunity for you to showcase your efforts and successes to the cleaning industry. Please refer to the Entry Form Guide before you start to complete your form.

We will keep you in the loop as to when applications re-open.


To assist you in your submission for 2021 we have included a Winning Tips for Entrants information sheet – do use it. The main reason for progressing to the shortlisted stage is the quality of the entry and in particular the evidence provided to support the category criteria.
