Green Cleaning Is Popular

22 Oct 2019 7:23 PM | Deleted user

     Green cleaning is quickly becoming the popular choice for service providers based on health and environmental reasons.  Green cleaning refers to the growing trend of opting for environmentally-friendly cleaning products & methods over the use of toxic and harmful cleaning chemicals which can lead to serious health repercussions.  Green cleaning also refers to the methods for manufacturing, packaging, and distributing cleaning products, typically using biodegradable ingredients in an environmentally sustainable manufacturing environment. 

     The primary purpose of cleaning is to protect human health.  At IJCSA, our certified member’s Green Principles begin with health - the health of our employees and of the workers in the buildings we clean. We use only safe products which are free of toxic side effects, and we do all that we can to improve indoor air quality. Green cleaners are not corrosive and meet strict standards regarding inhalation toxicity, combustibility and skin absorption.  Reducing the acute and chronic impacts of our chemicals and practices is the most important part of our Green Program.

     Beyond immediate health effects, we strive to reduce the residual impact of our chemicals and practices on the environment, so to make our own company's impact on the environment as small as possible.  IJCSA green certified companies do not allow the use of any cleaning products containing known carcinogens, mutagens, or other harmful chemicals.

     According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), many standard cleaning products out on the market are known to contain toxic chemicals that are harmful to adults, children, and the environment.  Green cleaning is now the most popular choice for service providers based on health and environmental reasons.
