Ever Consider the Benefits of a Green Janitorial Service?
When looking for a janitorial service, there are many things you want to take into consideration. This is especially true if you are looking for a janitorial service for a school, church, daycare, or other facility that serves people or animals.
Many of the chemicals used by cleaning services contained numerous chemical that are either known to be dangerous or have not been fully tested to determine how safe they are to use. According to recent research, there are 17,000 petrochemicals available for home use. Of those, only 30% have been tsted for exposure to human health and the environment.
It is impossible to determine the long-term impact some of these chemicals may have on the health an those that come in contact with it. This applies to those that touch or eat off the cleaned surfaces, as well as those doing the cleaning, who may be touching or inhaling the chemicals for extended periods of time.
Indoor air pollution is at an all-time high, in part, due to chemical-based cleaners. However, the cleanliness of a business will directly impact how they are perceived by their customers. For example, almost 90% of adults reported they would not be able to return to a gym if they believed it was unclean. Over 70% of people reported not returning to a gym they believed smelled bad, and over 70% of adults will not use gym equipment they perceive as dirty.
This may lead some to wonder what the solution is. How can a company ensure their business is clean and smells fresh without using chemical-based cleaners. The answer is simple. Choose a green cleaning service. This is a company that consciously choosing cleaning solutions that are environmentally friendly and non-toxic to humans and animals.
There are a wide range of cleaning products that are made from safe, non-toxic, natural ingredients. Finding cleaning services that offer green options used to be challenging, but as more companies have come to realize the dangers of chemical cleaners, the demand has grown significantly. The increased demand has resulted in more companies offering a wider variety of services and products.
Outsourced janitorial services can save a great deal of money due to the company’s ability to step away from buying and storing the products, as well as training new cleaning staff on how to use the new products. Bringing in a janitorial service that is already buying and using green cleaning solutions will save time, money, and resources.
Some have argued that the green options are not as effective in disinfecting as the chemical-based options. Some may argue the green options don’t smell as clean. However, what they may not realize is that the “clean smell” is actually the smell of the chemicals. It has nothing to do with the cleanliness of the area.
Green cleaning solutions are safe and effective in cleaning and disinfecting. They can be used in schools, nursing homes, restaurants, hospitals, and other businesses where sanitation is absolutely necessary.
In many cases, green cleaning solutions are almost better for the floors and surfaces they are being used on. Cleaners made with harsh chemicals can break down surfaces and cause the need for full replacement sooner than ordinary. Green cleaners can save money in the short and long term. They are ideal for restaurant cleaning and other companies dealing with food preparation.
