    There is a great awakening on the health hazards springing from the use of the many cleansing products from our homes to the commercial settings. Awareness concerns arise from the products we are using in our homes- kitchens, floor, refrigerator, bathrooms and our offices.   As we get so preoccupied with making ends meet, it becomes imperative that we pay closer attention to the reasons we need to use the natural green cleaning products.

    Here are three reasons we should use green cleaning program.

    1.  A Healthier Home:  There is nothing better than cleaning your home, rest assured that your internal organs and skin is safe; the use of natural eco-friendly cleaners will give you the peace of mind about providing a healthier environment for you and your family, pets inclusive.  Green /eco-friendly products are safer and a healthier option to the hazards prone chemicals used so prominently today.

    2.  Better Air Quality: We can achieve cleaner homes without having to pollute the air we breathe by using the more natural products.

    Common chronic respiratory problems and illness resulting from volatile organic compounds released in the environment with everyday use of chemical cleaning products can be brought to the minimum by the use of natural/ eco-friendly products.

    3.  Cost Effective:  Most natural / eco-friendly cleaners can be made from products we already have in your pantries like: olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, baking soda, etc. Making cleaning cost less expensive when compared to the chemical cleaners we have lined up on the shelves at your local supermarket.

    It is also worthy of mention that there is a great reduction of sick days and absenteeism leading to greater productivity in our work places with the use of green cleaning products..

    As more people become more aware of the harmful effects of chemicals cleaners, let us all go green in our homes and commercial cleaning services.

    They may be under your kitchen sink, under your bathroom sink, or may be even sitting on the counter tops in your kitchen near your food because for all you know, it's perfectly safe.  But is it?  

    If you take a look at the back of a particular household cleanser it will more than likely read...Hazards to Humans or Domestic Animals. You may even see in all caps:  CAUTION and the number to the Poison Control Center.

    According to Share Guide, a holistic health magazine, chemical levels can be up to 70 times higher inside our homes than out; and over 100 chemicals that are commonly found in the home have been linked to allergies, birth defects, headaches, depression and even cancer!  There has to be a better alternative.  There is.

    Go green.  Exactly what is this? Green cleaning products contain organic ingredients that do not harm the environment or cause a threat to human health and the products are also biodegradable.  Going green means no more chemicals inhaled or absorbed into the skin.  Going green means improved health, environment and can even be less expensive because some products can be made in the comfort of your own home.

    So how do you know if you're buying a green cleaner?  There are no warning signs like CAUTION, or DANGER.  The product will not list a fragrance as an ingredient. The cleaner will not advise you to rinse with water after cleaning a surface that comes in contact with food.  And do not forget to look for an Eco-label.

    Please visit the IJCSA Green Cleaning Directory for more information.

    So what is this alternative to conventional cleaning products that claims to be healthier for the environment, the human body and does a job just as well?  Yes, green clean is the new clean.  Well if you've eagerly or hesitantly jumped on this band wagon....welcome aboard!  If your interest has been sparked, but you're not quite there, don't give up just yet.

    Having a green cleaning program has many benefits.  People want to be happy.  Good health is a very good start.  Who doesn't want a healthy family, healthy, happy children?  Toxic chemicals can linger in the environment for some time after use.  Green cleaning can reduce the exposure to toxins which can in turn have a positive effect on a person's health, which reduces healthcare costs.  

    People like to save money.  This method of cleaning often comes with less cost because it can made in the comfort your own home.  And most importantly, the green can really clean.

    What is customer service?  It’s true anyone can interact with a customer and call it customer service but true customer service takes it a step further. It isn’t just hearing what your customer has to say, but truly listening to what they are saying. You want to make sure to do what you can to show the customer that you appreciate their business and not just blow them off with rude remarks or making them feel belittled at the end of your conversation. By going above and beyond their normal expectations and doing what you can to make everything better or doing things the way that they are asking can make for a better client to customer relationship. Doing so will make the customer feel more at ease with you knowing that they can talk to you about issues and not having to worry that you are just going to be rude or not hear what they are saying.

    In the cleaning industry your client is everything! They pay you to do the services they need and by doing that it keeps you in business so you need to be willing to go above and beyond normal expectations. You never want to make your customers feel that you aren’t there to help them. By taking the extra time to be courteous and treat your customers as you would want to be treated, you can be sure that you will be able to retain your customers for a long period of time. Both you and the people you are working for will know that you are willing to do what is needed to keep them as a valuable asset to your company.

    Technology is changing so is the way we do business.  The new generation is all about health and wellness and in order to meet their needs the janitorial industry need to change the traditional cleaning chemicals and cleaning procedures for green products.  Using certified green products are very safe, friendly, and environmentally healthy for everyone.
