    Peckham is dedicated in providing green cleaning programs as part of our custodial program.  We are also working with many different organizations and agencies such as State and Federal agencies who are now requiring the use of Green Cleaning Programs and the use of Bio-preferred products.  They also require developing reports on practices relating to sustainability. Peckham always uses the Key Sustainable Products requested and required in Sections described in many of the of the Performance Work Statement (“PWS”).in our government contracts. 

     Additionally, and as a part of meeting these requirements in PWS, Peckham uses Green Seal Eco logo and EPA safe choice products.  Peckham’s Green Program also reviews recycled content and post-consumer recycled content when purchasing waste liners, paper towels and paper products. 

    Peckham also looks at ways to decreases the amount of items going into landfills by using microfiber products that are reusable in addition to recycling cardboard and paper whenever possible.  The health benefits of green cleaning are helping sustain and protect the future for all of us. http://www.ijcsa.org/Green-Cleaning-Services.

    Many cleaning products  can have a negative impact on your health, the environment, and dangerous if not used properly. Some products can build up in the body causing allergies, respiratory health problems, hormones disruption, and cancer. Many cleaning products contaminate our water system, create green house gasses, and are toxic to animals.

    Harmful effects of using everyday cleaning products vs using natural products.  The harmful effects of using everyday cleaning products is that those chemicals have a negative impact on the environment.  Numerous chemicals used are volatile organic compound that contribute to air pollution. Using non recycle or non biodegradable products contribute to the overfilling of our landfills.  

    When you use Ammonia to clean your windows this adds nitrogen to the environment.  This can be toxic to plants, fish, and animals.  In people when exposed for a long period of time, you will have a burning sensation to the eyes, nose and throat, pain in lungs, nausea and coughing.

    Chlorine also known as hypochlorite was a powerful poison used in WWI.  This household chemical most used by people was evolved to form a household poison.  When using household bleach for everyday cleaning this produces pure chlorine in the environment.  It has an direct toxic effect on living organisms and reacts with organic materials in environment to create hazards and other carcinogenic toxins. 

    When using natural green products you are not leaving your carbon footprint.  Products from natural chemicals being used does not effect respiratory or cause issues such as headaches, irritation of the body.  These natural products are plant and animal friendly.

    Following the OSHA Guidelines regarding Bloodborne Pathogens is important for any cleaning employees that may come in contact with any body fluids while performing their cleaning tasks.

    By following OSHA's "Universal Precautions" the cleaning employee assumes that all fluids containing pathogens are infected and insures that proper precautions are taken.

    It is important for the cleaning employee employ Protective Practices when handling any type of Pathogen Clean ups. This could include; Blood, Vomit or Saliva. Safe protective practices include; Vinyl Gloves, Eye Protection, Face Masks, or Gowns. Never smoke, apply lip balm, or compress any bags that contain pathogens are additional best practices. Not splashing while cleaning and using tongs to avoid sharp objects are also important.

    There are many benefits for having a clean program in custodial services operations. First, green-cleaning programs reduces exposure to toxic chemicals. Reduces asthma attacks by effectively keeping dust and chemical allergens at bay. Improves overall indoor air quality by reducing airborne dust and chemical gases. This is why switching to green cleaning products is good for the health and wellbeing of your people, and it prevents unnecessary chemicals from being released into the environment. Besides all this, a green program allows organizations to design innovative purchasing strategies in order to keep costs down.

    First, allow to buying in bulk products; that will save you both time and money. Second streamlining purchases. For example when I work with businesses and look at their cleaning products, I find that often there are unnecessary products. Most businesses need just an all-purpose cleaner and a bathroom cleaner, so reducing your purchasing to eliminate unnecessary items will help to reduce costs. Finally, it allow to buying concentrated products, which might cost a bit more up front, but will save money in the end (while also reducing the negative environmental impacts of packaging).
