    Using green, eco-friendly cleaning products can improve the air quality, reduce health and environmental concerns and sets the standard for environmentally responsible behavior. Contributing to a well thought out green cleaning practice will benefit not only client, but it will also ensure that you are reducing your impact on the environment. Your clients will appreciate this and maybe even start using green cleaning products themselves! green cleaning service directory

    To implement a good green cleaning service program you must first conduct an audit of the facility or area in which you have been hired to clean. This will help you assess which areas need the most improvement and build a comprehensive plan around this. Next is to train the cleaning staff with the use of chemical and equipment handling and cleaning procedures. Afterwards, review the progress to make sure the green cleaning program is successful and implement any changes.

    Bloodborne pathogens training is not just important for biohazard cleaners. A potentially hazardous situation can present itself in any field of cleaning and can happen without notice or warning. Transmission of HIV or Hep B can occur in a split second and equipping your employees and yourself with the proper training and equipment to be protected is essential. This training can mean the difference between life and death. 

    One of the most important things that can be learned through this course is the idea of universal precautions. Universal precautions are precautions that are to be taken anytime that you are in contact with or think you may be in contact with, blood or any other infectious materials. It teaches that you should always treat bodily fluids as if they are infected with a communicable virus. This enables you and your employees to be defensive in your approach to all jobs and work cautiously to minimize your exposure to any possible hazards. 

    Always have PPE on hand for all employees. Even if you do not clean these types of hazards, you may come in contact with them and need to be able to protect yourself. Knowing what to do and what to be aware of after exposure can ensure that should the unthinkable happen, you will be able to identify and intervene appropriately. Giving your employees the most up-to-date information on how to protect themselves can keep you out of trouble as an employer and ensure safety in your business.

    How Important Are Janitors & Janitorial Staff To Our Daily Lives

    Janitors are extremely important to our day to day lives. Just think without janitors, going to the hospitals with bodily fluids and trash everywhere. I can tell you now that you would probably walk out. Or what about going to the grocery store and seeing trash and old food all over the floor, again you would probably walk out.

    Janitors make up the back ground of the world but without janitors the world would be a complete mess. Mostly every company in the world that allows customer access to their facility should understand that customer service starts with a clean waiting area.  If you agree, you are at the right place. Please see IJCSA's Janitorial Service Directory- for all your janitorial needs.

    Before I let you go, you should understand when go to the bank, gym, store, or even events that it take a lot of effort from great men and women to have cleaned up the place so you could enjoy the best experiences of your lives.   Please see a janitor, thank a janitor.

    While there are many facets to the cleaning industry, mold remediation, and detection are the most important. Undetected mold can lead to physical ailments including headaches, sore throat, runny nose, and even skin rashes in the customers we are tasked with protecting through our services. A cleaning service (no matter how small) should always be vigilant in recognizing the signs of a mold issue and being able to intervene for the safety of themselves and their customer. 

    Incorporating a mold cleaning program into your business can not only generate another stream of revenue, it can also allow you to work closely with your community members to provide safe spaces for individuals and families while also keeping yourself and your employees safe on the job. Understanding how mold works, how it can manifest in individuals, and how to treat it can change the game for your business and the customers that you serve.

    Here at 850 Bio, we plan on incorporating a mold cleaning service into our suite of offered services. Through a mold remediation service, we can offer our customers not only a clean space after an incident or trauma but also a space where they can be healthy and happy again. We will work on training to help technicians locate the hidden mold and establish policies and procedures for how to treat homes or businesses in which mold is located. We will keep the highest levels of PPE in the trucks, even if we do not initially believe that the home may be contaminated. Safety for ourselves and our customers is the most important piece of our job and we take it very seriously.

    Bloodborne pathogens are microorganisms that are in human blood and has the potential to cause various disease if exposed. These diseases may include HIV/AIDS, hepatitis b, hepatitis c, malaria, and syphilis. The CDC reported that approximately 5.6 million healthcare and janitorial service workers are at risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens. Therefore, we must maintain gaining knowledge of bloodborne pathogens.

    It's important to have knowledge of bloodborne pathogens because when knowledge is applied correctly it reduces the potential of a threat. Continually educating yourself on OSHA guidelines keeps the employer and their employees safe, also eliminates exposure in the workplace. With the training and guidelines of OSHA, it teaches us that we should treat all bodily fluids as if they are contaminated since there is no way to differentiate between infected fluids and non-infected fluids.

    In conclusion, educating ourselves about bloodborne pathogens should remain our priority. Annually educating ourselves and employees on the proper clean up of bodily fluids will continue to ensure workplace safety. Taking the initiative to meet OSHA guidelines will help you and others around you by limiting exposure.

    Understanding Universal precautions and bloodborne pathogens is something that all employers and employees should learn and know. As an employer with J & E Cleaning Co. LLC, it is with great importance that I keep the safety of my employees as my main priority. Dealing with the possibilities of exposures and potential hazards of infectious diseases and bloodborne pathogens (i.e. HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis B and C, as well as many other ailments or diseases that can be acquired) on a daily basis can be intimidating. Here at J & E Cleaning Co. LLC we will make sure that all precautions are seen and that you are strongly protected on our end. But Precaution is a huge part of the responsibility of the employee as well. Especially universal precautions and knowing where your hazards are. Wearing your Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is a great determent and step in the right direction of your own personal safety from exposure.

    Bloodborne pathogens are diseases and viruses that get passed along through exposure from bodily fluids (i.e. blood, sputum, vomit and others) this can lead to illness and even death. Symptoms don't usually show for some time, it is good to be vigilant to any symptoms if you think you have possibly been exposed. In the case of exposure through splash, break in skin or being poked by a sharp. Please contact your supervisor and/or boss immediately in order to take the proper actions according to company protocol. After going through all protocols with your supervisor and/or boss, it is a good idea to also contact your personal care physician so that any and all post exposure actions can be taken to ensure that you're taken care of adequately.

    Personal protective equipment also known as PPE are articles of protection for the safety of our staff members during cleaning and disposal. Personal protective equipment consists of the following: Eye protection, gloves, mask & sometimes even isolation/impervious gowns. As your employer at J & E Cleaning Co. LLC, it is my duty to keep you as an employee safe and free from as much harm and/or exposure as possible. By providing you the proper PPE through our company or having one of our contracted facilities providing the appropriate articles upon arrival. As much as it is my duty, it is also the duty of you the employee to ensure that you are donning all of these articles when necessary upon cleaning certain areas where required.
