Commercial Green Cleaning Services
There are countless benefits of Going Green for a business. One of the number one motivators for businesses to Go Green, is the image it presents to the public. But Going Green does more than that- it can boost employee morale, provide competitive advantage, and even increase customer satisfaction. A company that proves it values and commits to sustainability by adopting green practices can set itself apart from the rest; that means choosing service providers who are also committed to the environment through green cleaning.
At Gator Cleaning Solutions we know that a comprehensive green and environmentally sustainable cleaning program includes the use of disinfectant chemicals along with equipment to reduce the spread of illness-causing germs and limit the chance of infectious outbreak increasing the safety of our indoor environments and workplace health. By using green cleaning products and supplies, we provide our customers with an innovative, environmentally-conscious, science-based cleaning program. A green cleaning program that decreases the spread of infection while ensuring the well-being and safety of the humans and environment that we touch.
Microfiber cloths and flat-head mops are used to prevent paper-based cleaning tools that typically incorporate chlorine and other toxic chemicals. Microfiber cloths can be cleaned and reused up to 500 times therefore reducing the packaging waste.
HEPA Vacuum Technology
Unfiltered commercial vacuums return 40% of dirt back into the air decreasing indoor air quality. By embracing new technology with HEPA air filtration in our vacuums, we eliminate 99.7% of germs and allergens when we clean.
Chemical Management System
By using a chemical management system we ensure that no excess chemicals are used during the cleaning process. This also allows for water conservation and reduction of waste bi-product.
Sustainability is a comprehensive approach looking at all aspects of our environment from air quality to water conservation- this carries on through our green cleaning program.
Color Coding Tools
Using color coded cloths and tools helps our team prevent cross contamination within the facility. This procedure ensures the Green Seal’s Standard for Industrial and Institutional Cleaners (GS-37) certified chemicals for general purpose, washroom, glass, and carpet cleaning or recommended chemicals for those not covered by standard, but go beyond current industry specifications.
The Use of Green Paper Products
Our team at Gator Cleaning Solutions can upgrade your business’ paper products with EPA’s Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines and Green Seal’s Standards for Tissue (GS-1) and Towels (GS-9) approved products. These green paper products are manufactured with recycled paper without the use of chlorine or its derivatives. These paper products are dispensed from large rolls to minimize packaging and waste. We also discourage the use of folded paper towels when possible. Utilizing “hands-free” high-capacity paper towel dispensers promote waste-reduction by controlling towel usage and reduce the potential for cross-contamination.
Small Steps Count Too
For businesses that aren’t able to go fully “green” with their cleaning program can begin with basic green cleaning options, such as switching to Green Seal certified cleaning chemicals and paper products. By using Green Care products, businesses can take a broader approach to green cleaning while participating in recycling programs and touch-less water conservation faucets and toilets.
Whatever route you choose, there are simple steps you can take to decrease pollutants spread throughout your facility and to promote indoor air quality. Green cleaning provides benefits to businesses, buildings, occupants, visitors, and the environment.
For our customers working toward LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, a green cleaning program from Gator Cleaning Solutions will include use of the green cleaning products and procedures required to earn points toward certification. By knowing the importance of these certifications and other trends as it relates to the cleaning industry our team has become a genuine partner in achieving your green goals.
