Our Green School Cleaning Program takes a holistic approach to your School’s janitorial maintenance and operations.
According to the Healthy Schools Campaign:
“Each school day, some 53 million students and 5 million staff attend our nation’s schools, representing some 20 percent of the American population.”
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):
“Half this population may be exposed to polluted indoor air, lead, asbestos, chemical fumes, pesticides, molds and other toxins, along with overcrowding and poor sanitation. A well-designed green cleaning program can help reduce these harmful exposures and yield many other positive benefits for students, custodial staff, administrators and the environment.”
After consideration of your school’s goals and expectations, we customize our Green Cleaning program by implementing the following:
- Use of Effective Janitorial Equipment. We use equipment that follows the standards of the Carpet and Rug institute – vacuums and other floor cleaning equipment with high-efficiency filters to capture microscopic materials that might adversely impact building occupant health or damage sensitive equipment.
- Use of Green Cleaning Products. We use Green Seal’s Standard for Industrial and Institutional Cleaners.
- Green Cleaning Procedures. We use micro-fiber dusting cloths and flat mops to collect dust and dirt.
- Using of Green paper products. We follow EPA’s Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines and Green Seal’s Standards for Tissue (GS-1) and Towels (GS-9) for recycled content in janitorial paper products bleached without the use of chlorine or its derivatives.
