Green Commercial Cleaning
The commercial cleaning industry is enormous, consuming billions of pounds of cleaning supply chemicals and janitorial paper annually. This has a tremendous impact on our air, water, soil, and other resources.
Our custodians keep careful track on cleaning supply chemicals and their environmental impact, as well as the energy used to power the facilities. Enviro-Clean’s sustainability program incorporates certified green products and equipment into the cleaning process, but our program is also distinguished by the kind of staff training and service support you would expect from a leader in green cleaning. We are committed to providing customers with the highest quality, environmentally responsible green cleaning service solutions.
Our Cleaning Processes
The greenest, high performance chemicals available are used.
Auto-scrubbers use low usage technology, reducing the use of chemicals.
Vacuums have near HEPA filtration systems and replace dust mops where feasible.
Acids and aerosols are not used except where no other satisfactory substitute is available.
Color coded, reusable microfiber cloths are used for dusting and cleaning rather than throw away cloths.
Carpets are pretreated with a chemical and extracted using only water.
Chemicals are dispensed from a metering system ensuring that no chemical is wasted and dilution is always correct.
Only environmentally friendly products are used.
Benefits of Our Sustainable Practices
Using Enviro-Green approved chemicals and processes can provide many immediate as well as long term benefits to businesses. Below are just a few.
Eco-friendly cleaning creates healthier surroundings
Green cleaning helps improve indoor air quality and reduce health problems that traditional products and processes can cause. Building occupants experience fewer incidences of irritations or sensitivities to the indoor environment.
Healthier environments increase productivity
Statistics show increased satisfaction, improved morale, reduced absenteeism and increased productivity and efficacy can occur when a facility is maintained using green cleaning processes and chemicals. Building occupants appreciate knowing green practices are used in the facility they occupy.
Green cleaning programs help the earth
Using environmentally friendly equipment and products in the right way helps decrease air pollution, water pollution, ozone depletion and global climate change. Green practices also promote recycling, reduce the use of raw materials and minimize toxic products requiring disposal. These practices can have a significant impact in reducing your facility’s carbon footprint, which can benefit your business in countless ways, from positive PR to industry-leading certifications.
