CEDAR RAPIDS, IA — In an effort to boost indoor environmental quality for students and staff at Hawkeye Community College, FBG Service Corporation has recently certified all of their buildings with the GREENGUARD-certified cleaning program, according to a press release.
The program, developed by industry pioneer Diversey Inc., was designed specifically to address environmental concerns in commercial and educational facilities, the release stated.
According to the release, the program involves everything from specialized equipment and procedures to specific training on cleaning methods.
"People are our first priority. That was our primary motivation behind upgrading our maintenance program. We have always been innovative when it comes to environmental quality in the facilities we maintain. Our mission is the health and safety of all occupants," said District Manager Tom Montgomery.
"Operational savings were a factor for Hawkeye. But the truth is, adopting the GREENGUARD-certified program is quite an easy decision when they realized the benefits. It just makes sense to invest in programs that will help keep students and employees healthy and productive," Montgomery added.
