I'm A Certified Green Cleaning Technician!

14 May 2024 10:13 PM | Lauren Wanco

I am proud to announce that I/my company has achieved the prestigious IJCSA Master Green Cleaning Certification! This comprehensive certification from the International Janitorial Cleaning Services Association demonstrates our commitment to environmentally responsible cleaning practices and our expertise in implementing green cleaning programs.

Through this rigorous course, I gained in-depth knowledge about the health and environmental impacts of traditional cleaning chemicals. I was shocked to learn just how hazardous some common cleaning products can be, containing compounds like ammonia, chlorine, and volatile organic compounds that can cause respiratory issues, skin irritations, and contribute to indoor air pollution. The course opened my eyes to the importance of using safer, plant-based green cleaning products.

One of the most interesting aspects was learning about greener alternatives for different cleaning tasks. For example, I discovered that vinegar makes an excellent natural glass and surface cleaner. Baking soda is a gentle abrasive that can tackle tough jobs like oven cleaning. And microfiber cloths and mops allow cleaning with just water in many cases. The course provided a wealth of practical green cleaning tips and strategies.

In addition to the health and environmental benefits, the IJCSA certification has given me/my company a competitive advantage in attracting environmentally-conscious customers. We can now promote our services as following the highest green cleaning standards backed by a respected international organization. I am excited to implement everything I learned to provide exceptional green cleaning for my customers while doing my part for sustainability.
