Monday''s Ask the Experts question from a cleaning professional on the International Custodial Advisors Network (ICAN) "Ask the Experts" page: Is anyone aware of a "Green Cleaning" checklist that can be utilized to set up and continually audit a facility for green cleaning?
The answer
I’m sure additional research will turn up many more resources than I have listed below as there is much written and be written on the subject of green cleaning.
Go to www.usgbc.org/ShowFile.aspx?DocumentID=4093 for the US Green Building Council’s LEED-EB checklist. From that you can pick portions that apply to your particular facility and make up a list of your own. More details are available on their website.
The US Dept. of the Interior has information at: www.doi.gov/greening/sustain/AppendixC.html
A sample cleaning based list may be found at: www.informinc.org/sitevis.pdf
