Going Green And Protecting Our Employees & Clients

05 Apr 2019 9:21 AM | Julie Lesage

Occupational injuries and illnesses are common problems in the housekeeping world.  Green Cleaning protects our workers against harmful substances, and we pass on the benefits to our customers as well.  This is why we are so excited about the IJCSA Green Cleaning Certification Program.


We have been raised thinking the “Clorox” and bleach smell means " truly clean".  We must educate people about the efficiency of green cleaning and the health value over conventional cleaning.  In my opinion, Green Cleaning should always be an option.  I don’t want to be responsible for harmful effects our company’s cleaning regimen will have on employees and customers.


Although, our mission to educate people is far from being done, it is much easier to implement a Green Cleaning Service nowadays.  Many studies have been published to show how toxic conventional products are unhealthy.


How do you promote your Green Cleaning Service without falling in the Greenwashing scheme?  Be honest about the products your use, be personal about your mission and back your claims with science.
