This month, we are celebrating Earth Day by touting the benefits of green cleaning to our customers. “Going green” is one of the most important steps you can take to preserve and care for our environment, and it may be easier than you think. Keep reading to get a solid breakdown of what green cleaning really is and how it can benefit your facility, your employees and our planet.
What are the key elements of a green cleaning program?
Green cleaning has two main components: cleaning efficiency and choosing green cleaning products. We are proud to provide a wide array of green cleaning products in Boston, including non-toxic and biodegradable cleaning agents, microfiber cloths, mops and dusters, paper products made from recycled materials and high performance cleaning equipment that is energy efficient.
Green cleaning also means cleaning efficiently to make the best use of resources while reducing waste. Examples of this principle include training your staff on how to use cleaning equipment and chemicals properly, recycling to reduce waste in your facility, fixing potential problems early before they need more extensive solutions that use more resources, and regularly maintaining your equipment as a preventative measure. Steps that increase productivity, require fewer resources and streamline processes also contribute to greener cleaning.
What are the benefits of green cleaning?
Most companies adopt green cleaning measures to support the environment, but green cleaning has positive ramifications on the safety, well-being and health of your staff and clients as well.
Green cleaning reduces waste, especially toxic waste, and limits chemical run-off. These benefits are vital to preserving ecosystems and reducing our carbon footprints.
When you choose green cleaning products in Boston, you reduce your employees’ and clients’ exposure to toxic chemicals. Keeping chemical allergens at bay can reduce asthma attacks and other reactions, and avoiding chemical gases improves the overall indoor air quality of a facility. As an added (but important!) bonus, developing more efficient cleaning practices can also increase your bottom line.
