There are countless benefits of going green for a business. One of the number one motivators for businesses to Go Green is the image it presents to the public; but it also can boost employee morale, provide competitive advantage, and even increase customer satisfaction. A company that proves it values and commits to sustainability by adopting green practices can set itself apart from the rest; that means choosing service providers who are also committed to the environment through green cleaning.

Microfiber Clothes and Flat head mops are used to prevent paper based cleaning tools that typically incorporate chlorine and other toxic chemicals. Microfiber clothes can be cleaned and reused up to 500 times therefore reducing the packaging waste.
HEPA Vacuum Technology
Unfiltered commercial vacuums return 40% of dirt back into the air decreasing indoor air quality. By embracing new technology with HEPA air filtration 99.7% of germs and allergens are eliminated.
Chemical Management System
By using chemical management systems we ensure that no excess chemical be used during the cleaning process. This also allows for water conservation and reduction of waste bi-product.
Sustainability is a comprehensive approach looking at all aspects of our environment from air quality to water conservation.
Color Coding Tools
Using color coded clothes and tools helps our team prevent cross contamination within the facility. This procedure ensures the Green Seal’s Standard for Industrial and Institutional Cleaners (GS-37) certified chemicals for general purpose, washroom, glass, and carpet cleaning or recommended chemicals for those not covered by standard, but go beyond current industry specifications.
“Green” Paper products
We can help you move to EPA’s Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines and Green Seal’s Standards for Tissue (GS-1) and Towels (GS-9) for recycled content in janitorial paper products bleached without the use of chlorine or its derivatives. Products dispensed from large rolls to minimize packaging and waste. Folded paper towels are discouraged. “Hands-free” paper towel dispensers that reduce the potential for cross-contamination. High-capacity dispensers that promote waste-reduction by controlling towel usage.
Small Steps Count Too
We can begin with basic green cleaning options, such as switching to Green Seal certified cleaning products. Green Care can also take a broader approach to cleaning green and include things like, recycling programs and touchless water conservation equipment. Whatever route you choose, there are simple steps you can take to decrease pollutants spread throughout your facility and to promote indoor air quality. Green cleaning provides benefits to businesses, buildings, occupants, visitors, and the environment.
