How to implement green practices in your cleaning

09 Nov 2018 12:15 PM | Alberto Atallah

Adopting a "green" model for your cleaning business has financial, practical, and moral benefits; for the customer, for their customers, your employees, and for you. As the increasing concern for the environment develops, customers are looking out for "green brands" and other ways to help conserve their spaces and decrease the negative impact on the environment. Adopting eco-friendly practices into your business adds a selling point for your brand, can boost employee morale, save costs, and gain you recognition for efforts in conserving the ecosystem. Here's a simple rundown on how you can make your cleaning business "green".

Start by using more natural cleaning solutions, instead of the conventional tools that are usually releasing harmful chemicals. Baking soda, lemon, vinegar, are just three examples of components used in green cleaning. When these are mixed with water or oil, they provide effective solutions to a few areas, such as window and furniture cleaning, as well as deep polishing of counter tops, sinks, ovens, and other surfaces. Light some candles or burn some incense for an organic, green way to cleanse the air around you. Consider installing low-flush toilets and showers for your home or any venture, save costs on water and help save water as well. Most importantly, train your employees to adopt these green practices as habit, make it a company standard, and you'll be running a green cleaning program in no time.
