BOISE, ID — Sometimes controversial, even radical, positions bring great truths to light, according to a press release.

This is so with regard to the recently formed Chemical Free Cleaning Network (CFCN) which advocates the reduction or elimination of chemical products and processes that leave harmful residues in the environment, the release stated.

Highlighting the need, importance, and means to reduce or eliminate unnecessary chemicals from the cleaning process is a profound — and courageous — banner to wave in a sector dominated by consumable and lucrative chemical products, the release noted.

According to the release, the Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI) thus encourages the cleaning industry to support this effort and ask the hard-hitting questions, including:

• In what situations can chemical-free interventions completely or partly replace petro-chemical based solutions?

• In what situations are petro-chemical based solutions (e.g., disinfectants) appropriate, safer and better supported by peer-reviewed science?

• Which manufacturers of chemical-free solutions have done their homework and can supply objective peer-reviewed science to support their claims?

For answers to these questions, consider attending the free upcoming Chemical-free Cleaning Expo, to be held at Nova Southeastern University in Davie, FL, February 21, the release added.
