Diversey Introduces Comprehensive Toolkit for Sustainable Cleaning in Educational Facilities Healthy High Performance Cleaning guide to facility care extended to schools and universities

STURTEVANT, Wis. – Diversey, now a part of Sealed Air, today launched its Healthy High Performance Cleaning (HHPC) program for educational facilities. As maintenance budgets tighten and schools become more concerned about indoor air quality (IAQ), the need for targeted and effective training methods for cleaning is increasing. A complete guide to sustainable facility care, the toolkit is the only cleaning system GREENGUARD Certified for IAQ.

“With our GREENGUARD-certified cleaning products and processes, schools can be assured that the system supports better IAQ,” said John Surdo, North America sales leader, Diversey. “Additionally, HHPC optimizes infection prevention and reduces student absences while helping schools achieve green cleaning goals.”

The toolkit includes the HHPC Procedure Manual, training wall charts and procedure cards for specific tasks/areas as well as supervisor checklists. E-learning modules, available as an entire curriculum or individually, cover proper cleaning procedures for wood care, classrooms, cafeterias, athletic facilities, pool areas and more. Tests are available to track learning progress of cleaning staff. Once the system is implemented, schools can request an audit to validate and promote their compliance with the GREENGUARD standard.

“One of the top challenges schools face is employee training,” Surdo added. “With the new HHPC Toolkit, schools are equipped with school-specific training topics to encourage proper disinfection of all critical touch points.”

The new HHPC program for educational facilities is just one way Diversey helps to create a cleaner, safer and healthier environment for students and staff. The program is part of Diversey''s Total Solutions approach for educational facilities which helps schools increase operational efficiency, reach sustainability goals, improve health and safety of students and staff, and reduce the total cost of cleaning.

Diversey is now a part of Sealed Air, a leader in food and other protective packaging solutions.
