As time goes on, people are becoming more and more concerned with going “green” and reducing their impact on the environment. Consumers are making different choices at all levels. From reusable shopping bags to Energy Star® appliances, from fuel efficient vehicles to locally grown organic produce, it’s clear that going green isn’t just a fad, it’s becoming the norm.
The commercial sector is also realizing the need to go green. An estimated two-thirds of buildings are rated as having “sick building syndrome,” and there are over 100 million lost workdays each year due to poor indoor air quality. Not to mention the money wasted on billions of pounds of paper, plastic, and chemical products that end up in landfills each year.
Maintaining green buildings can help provide a healthier indoor environment for building occupants and even improve worker productivity. Green buildings also help reduce costs, last longer, and promote a positive image for the building owner.
More and more, in-house service providers, janitorial staffs, and building service contractors are being asked to change the way they perform their cleaning in order to meet the environmental goals of the property owner.
Luckily, going green doesn’t require huge changes in the way you currently clean. In fact, most janitorial staffs are already doing many of the procedures required under green cleaning standards. By making just a few small changes to the processes and products you use, going green can be quite easy.
Plus, with today’s technology and scientific advances, you don’t have to sacrifice performance when switching your products and procedures to a more environmentally friendly cleaning regimen. Many green products are just as effective as traditional chemistry, delivering great results for around the same cost.
