WHAT DOES "GREEN " MEAN?
Simply stated, green products and services have less or reduced effects on our health and the environment when compared to similiar products with the same purpose. Currently, there is a standard cleaning industry definition of "environmentally preferable." The end result : "green" products are not toxic and provide a healthy balance.
DO GREEN PRODUCTS PERFORM AS WELL AS TRADITIONAL PRODUCTS?
Yes! Many advancements have been made in technology to make these products effective, if not more effective than traditional products. The competitive marketplace has made a wide range of products available from many manufacturers at competitive pricing.
WHERE DO I START MY "GREEN" CLEANING?
Your business can truly shine when you use the best cleaning practices that utilize green products. At CapSan we recommend the following steps to ensure a cost effective, quality cleaning program.
Stop Dirt At The Door
Pay attention to entryways - inside and out - to help keep dirt from getting into your building. Install effective walk-off mats and consistently clean the mats to reduce the degree of dirt entering your facility.
Touch up contact points in your facility on a regular basis to make cleaning more efficient and the environment more healthy for your employees and customers.
Choose Cleaners Carefully
Select cleaners that have the approval from organizations that set the "green" cleaning standards when possible.
Use Green Paper Products
Chose products in this category that have a significant amount of post consumer content or that comply with the "green" cleaning standard.
Involve all occupants of the building in a facility wide recycling program to reduce waste.
As always, contact you CapSan Account Manager with any green cleaning questions or to inquire about reccomendations for your facility.
