Today’s universities and other large institutions are expected to be increasingly conscious of their environmental and sustainability practices and to set an example for students, faculty and their community.
Any change to your brand or your service has to either save you time and money or differentiate your business enough to make the effort worthwhile. A certified green cleaning service can be one of those differentiators.
Because green cleaning has had such a major impact on the professional cleaning industry as well as the building and management industries, it might serve us well to clear up confusion about certain cleaning myths.
Facility managers that successfully implement a high-performance matting system as part of a green cleaning program can keep their facilities cleaner and healthier for longer periods of time, which can keep chemical use, green or conventional, to a minimum.
A successful program is not just about obtaining green certificates; instead it should be a part of every effort.
