Carpeting, flooring, waste bins, windows, bathrooms; all areas of your building need to be cleaned, that’s a given. Nobody is ever delighted to walk into a dirty building or room. Cleaning is important to maintain the look and feel of your establishment. What’s more important than that? Your health. Routine cleaning takes away dirt, allergens, and food sources for pests who carry bacteria and disease. Air quality is a big issue especially for those who have a chronic health condition.
Ok, so, we’ve cleaned and polished, and reduced any contaminants in the air; We’re done, right? Not so fast. How did you accomplish that clean? What kind of products are you using? To some this might seem “nit-picky,” but it is a very valid question. Are you using the safest products to achieve the goal? Cleaning chemicals are known to be abrasive and powerful solutions that are meant to destroy dirt and odor. Often these chemicals are branded with disclaimers and warnings about the effect they might have on health. These products can be a danger. Working toward using safer “greener” products can reduce or eliminate the dangers revolving around using such abrasive chemicals.
According to EnvirOx:
- Safer products reduce worker’s comp issues. Right now, six out of 100 custodial workers have a chemical-related worker’s comp claim per year.
- Safer chemicals also reduce surface wear & tear. If it’s safe for the environment and safe for people, the product probably isn’t going to hurt your carpet, either.
- Sustainable, concentrated chemicals often have a high yield — that is, the concentrated chemical makes a lot of in-use cleaning product. This can lead to big in-use savings over ready-to-use products that end up in landfills.
