A Green Cleaning Program requires that the service provider consider the chemicals, products and equipment utilized in the cleaning process including: janitorial paper products, vacuum cleaners, floor machines, carpet extractors, entry way mats, etc. as well as how these products are properly used.
Today, environmentally preferable cleaning products work as well as traditional chemicals, provide a safer work environment, and contribute to improved indoor air quality (IAQ) for building occupants.
There are also process changes that can be made. Most BSCs and in-house facility operations already use micro fiber dust cloths that cut down on the need for surface cleaners, improve IAQ, and increase productivity.
