Being IJCSA Green Certified Is Amazing

07 Dec 2019 9:36 AM | Leah Venegas

It’s a known fact that it provides peace of mind to an individual or business that those they do business with substantiate their ability to do the job by providing evidence of a certification.  Knowing that you entrust a company that’s certified solidifies that they not only can do the job but that they understand the work on a deeper level.  While most think that cleaning is something that anyone can do, that’s actually a false assumption.

Cleaning is more than just wiping down furniture or a tub.  A reputable green cleaning company understands the chemicals and the science of their products.  Furthermore, they understand soils and how those chemicals interact with those chemicals.  Understanding the right chemical for the right job is imperative to whether a surface is actually clean or not. 

A green cleaning company, in many ways, needs to understand this more than a typical cleaning company.  While it’s important to have a cleaning method, it’s equally important to know what works on what surfaces.  With a green company, you also have to know what’s toxic, what’s safe, what’s acceptable by certain standards, and the health benefits associated with using green products.  Green Bright Cleaning Service doesn’t just clean, we do it for a more profound purpose than just having a clean home or work environment.  We do it to provide a better way of life, help those with health issues, help reduce that chances of health-related products due to toxins, and help the environment by reducing toxins in the air and in wastewater.

On average, a typical household contains a minimum of 62 toxic chemicals1.  Those chemicals may pose a serious health threat to everyone in the home, including children2, just by the spread of toxic dust from the chemicals3.  Even individuals who are aware of effects and shop for “green” products in the store need to take pause before throwing a cleaning product claiming to be eco-friendly into the basket.  Many manufacturers claim they have “green” products but still contain serious toxins4.  A company that claims to have environmentally safe products that are not is called “greenwashing”.  And most consumers don’t know what to look for.

Being a certified green cleaning company gives assurance to customers that they can put trust into a company to ensure they are doing everything they can to provide a safe environment without toxic chemicals.  Furthermore, they don’t have to worry about doing the research or understanding chemicals.  They’ll just have peace of mind knowing that the air they breath is clean, fresh, and healthy.
