    According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 1,4-dioxane is a probable carcinogen. The federal Consumer Product Safety Commission states that “the presence of 1,4-dioxane, even as a trace contaminant, is cause for concern.”3 1,4-dioxane is a byproduct of a chemical processing technique called ethoxylation in which cosmetic ingredients are processed with ethylene oxide. Manufacturers can easily remove the toxic byproduct, but are not required by law to do so.

    Would you deliberately clean a tub with a product that has formaldehyde in it, then fill the tub with nice warm water to bathe your two year old child?  How about the newborn baby?  I wouldn't!  Apparently, that is what most unsuspecting people are doing each time that they use a foaming bath tub cleaner.  I

    t hits me closer to home than you think.  I'm referring to purchasing and using products that harm or kill you slowly over time that manufacturers market knowing that their products cause the very people that they target to sell their products to.

    I've been diabetic since 1997 and since 2000 I have used the sugar substitute Splenda not knowing that it causes liver and kidney failure until I was diagnosed with stage 4 kidney failure  October 5, 2015.  A well-known product for it's incredible taste but yet all the people I know, only a very small handful knew about the harmful side effects.  All you have to do is Google, "Splenda side effects."  They are appalled.  So now, I'm all about green cleaning and products.  My husband tells people I research everything I'm given now.

    That's why I was so surprised and amazed by the article I read about the foaming bath tub cleaning solutions.  It turns different colors when it's time to wipe off!  It's so easy you just spray it on and wait a few minutes before wiping it off!  How many of you have heard that and been attracted to it at some point in time?  I know I was a big fan of them because it seems so effortless to clean.  Who wants to kill their back while bending over and scrubbing with a brush or cloth?  But do you really know how you are poisoning your family and your pets (if you bathe your dog in the tub)?  In my opinion, people need to read their labels more closely and pay attention before it is too late.  Don't serve death to your family on a plate so to speak.

    The FDA to this very day still supports the investors' studies and reports, short-term at that, on Splenda saying that all the studies and reports show it to be a safe product.  I'm living proof that the FDA  doesn't do enough to protect their own country by eliminating the products that contain harmful chemicals and produce disastrous health effects.  It's up to you the consumer to look out for those around you, your loved ones, and yourself.

    At Summit Professional Cleaning, Inc. We will conduct extensive research on products who claim to be environmentally friendly, non-toxic and biodegradable. Extensive research will include looking as the ingredients listed on the label, meeting with the manufacturers to discuss their methodology for making the products and contacting the EPA for their determination about the authenticity of the products in question.

    In addition to those products, we use natural cleaning products to promote a clean and health environment. We produce some of the products we use to ensure authentic natural products.

              As a business in our community, we feel it is important to provide our customers with Green Cleaning Services and Green products. We appreciate the need to protect the safety and well being of the people in our community, our environment, and our employees. We seek to protect by providing a safe alternative to the harsh and hazardous cleaning chemicals out there. We offer the best Green products for sale as well as our use of Green cleaning products in our cleaning services.

              We have seen directly through are children and new customers that have bad reactions to unsafe cleaning products. Everything from rashes, breathing problems, swelling of the face, etc. We have to provide a safe option and information to secure the safety of people and our environment. When you look at a product and see the possible side effects and reactions, how can you not hesitate and see if there is another way. When we clean with Green products, we don't have to worry about our customers calling us and complaining about the chemical odor or worry that they will have a reaction that sends them to the hospital.

              The added benefit to selling and using Green Services is that when we are asked about our products we open the door to educate people on the things they don't even realize effect our environment and our health.

    As members of IJCSA we should give more then just good services. We should provide compassionate services to our clients. Providing services with passion should be a top standard. Once a client can feel that we care about their needs they will respect the services we provide. When we provide compassion we'll never have to chase or beg for cleaning business because our clients will refer us to the people they care about.  

    As members of IJCSA  we should set the bar high in regards to operating a compassionate janitorial or cleaning service. We should ask ourselves does this pass the "Chick-fi-la test" are people lined up around the corner wanting our services.

    Janitorial Services need to treat our Customers with respect?? WHY? Janitorial work is considered to be at the BOTTOM of the work force, we don't have to be nice to our Clients!!

    WRONG, IJCSA Members train our employees that EXCELLENT Customer Service is the Key to opening every door at any Facility!

      Clean smells, shining floors, and smiling faces all go hand in hand. Janitorial work goes way beyond cleaning a facility, but starts with creating a comforting environment with cleaners that enjoy getting the job done with a smile on our faces.

    "Getting There First" reaches beyond what we do, when our clients know are ultimate goal is to please each employee's individual needs.
