General Secretary of Apklindo Tommy Hardjana stated that many investors are still unaware of the future prospects of the cleaning services sector in Indonesia despite large property development (including apartment complexes, office space, hospitals, hotels and malls) that has been evident in recent years, particularly in and around the bigger cities. Currently, there are about 1.5 million cleaning services companies active in Indonesia but due to robust demand, the sector still offers plenty of business opportunities. Moreover, many of these companies are small companies that cannot offer the best professional services as they lack good equipment and skills. Apklindo is planning to introduce a certificate for cleaning services companies that meet specific criteria for professional licensure.
