The AHCA was founded as a Mission to Raise the Respect and Awareness of Professional Cleaning and for the first time in history, there is an organized movement effectively changing the way society understands the importance of Cleaning as a Professional Trade.
In an effort to achieve their goals of increasing respect for professional cleaning, the AHCA has developed and established strategic methods of implementing special Projects that support its overall mission. These Projects address concrete symptoms that stem from age-old stigmas still affecting our society's understanding of professional cleaning today.
There are 5 established Projects of the AHCA, each equally important to educating and nurturing the overall understanding of Professional House Cleaning both for the general public and those who serve the world in this vital way.

The Stigma on house cleaning is our society’s ignorance at work, as a result, “cutting off the nose to spite the face”. Consequently, it’s a stigma that runs deep in all of us, and it’s still thriving, despite our modern times of democracy and recognition of civil rights. Moreover, a Stigma with Age-Old Roots tracing back generations, from our grandmother’s work in the home, to Irish indentured servants and African slaves, to ancient times before the stories of servants could even be recorded and recognized today. This is a stigma of double standards, which labels house cleaners’ work as “unskilled” and “unimportant”, despite the same expectations to receive results that are only possible with refined skills and integrity. In short, we are battling a Stigma that demeans the very person, by attaching itself through the “status” of their livelihoods.” AHCA members are giving back to this movement that is transforming the world's understanding toward our profession and helping us crush the stigmas surrounding the work of this trade.
