How Being Green Cleaning Certified will Benefit Your Company

21 Oct 2018 11:07 AM | Kellie Turner

I feel one of the biggest benefits of being green cleaning certified is the lasting effects it will have on our planet. Using regular cleaning products that have toxic chemicals in them are being released into the air and into the water. Our planet is very good at detoxing itself, however, if we continue to contribute to releasing all these toxic chemicals we aren’t helping. We are making it worse. In this article I will be going over many benefits of being green cleaning certified but, this I feel is one of the most important reasons.

Being green cleaning certified you’ll have a knowledge of products and what chemicals to look for in them. Certain chemicals, especially when mixed together, are downright dangerous. A benefit of your company being green cleaning certified is it will help prevent people from becoming sick from the cleaning chemicals they are using. It will create a safer environment for you and your employees.

I know I am not the only who can’t stand the smell of regular cleaning products. I dread the days our cleaning lady mops the floors because of the chemicals that are in the detergent being used. By being green cleaning certified, you can find products to switch out that will help clean up your indoor air and the effects it has on you and your employees. Did you know that the use of conventional cleaning products can contribute to higher air pollution indoors than outdoors?  Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which have been associated with a host of health problems like damage to the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system, are released when products are used and stored and can also linger in the air long after use. 

Having someone in your company being green cleaning certified, and switch to using green cleaning products, you are making a vote to protect the environment so to speak. Most green cleaning products are made using sustainable practices and naturally derived, safe, non-toxic, and biodegradable ingredients that do not negatively impact the environment. This speak volumes to the community. You are setting an example to companies and individuals surrounding you.
