A complete green cleaning solution would not only include environmentally friendly chemicals but all of the below as well:
Paper Towels and Bath Tissue
Paper products should be made with a significant portion of recycled content and produced in a way that meets strict environmental standards. Products should be processed without chlorine and not contain any added pigments, inks, dyes, or fragrances. Green Seal and others have established guidelines for paper products. We can supply all of your paper supply needs with approved products at very competitive rates.
Hand soaps should use environmentally responsible packaging and formulas with biodegradable ingredients. Green Seal also has guidelines for soap products. We can fulfill all of your soap needs with approved products at very competitive prices.
Proper matting is a critical component of a successful green program. Entryway mats are designed to remove dirt and moisture from shoes – keeping it out of the building in the first place. Mats should be a minimum of 3 to 4 stride lengths, approximately 12 to 15 feet, for maximum effectiveness at capturing soil before it enters the building. We have a great selection of mats to choose from.
Microfiber mops and cloths
Compared to traditional mops, microfiber has a number of green cleaning advantages. Microfiber material uses less cleaning chemicals and water. Microfiber pads can be changed frequently to reduce cross-contamination and, when used dry, they do a better job of capturing dust that otherwise can affect the health of building occupants. Microfiber mops make your floors look and feel cleaner because they are! This makes a tremendous difference in the overall cleanliness of your facility.
To maximize the effectiveness of a green cleaning program, all equipment that we use is energy efficient and environmentally friendly
Automatic faucets, flush values and soap dispensers
Touch-free faucets significantly reduce water consumption as well as eliminating a major source of cross-contamination. Automatic flush valves improve restroom hygiene and appearance. Touch-free soap dispensers help control usage and reduce waste.
