The GreenTrax™ program is not just a collection of products, but rather a solution for varying levels of commitment to the green cleaning movement based on specific characteristics for optimum functionality as a "Highly Efficient Entrance Matting System."

Advanced Vapor Technologies

Green is ''hot'' — studies validate green disinfection with steam vapor

Independent scientific tests conducted at Microbiotest Labs, VA, and Nelson Labs, UT, show that Advanced Vapor Technologies'' TANCS® Steam Vapor low-moisture system is a fast, chemical-free, water-based green method for destroying bacteria, mold and hard-to-kill pathogens in classrooms, restrooms, kitchens, hospitals, remediation sites and other environments. "Those interested in green cleaning, health and the environment should review the data validating this new technology," says David Mudarri, former Senior Indoor Air Quality Scientist at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. "Treated steam vapor from tap water is the only ingredient."

The TANCS component uses the minerals found within tap water to form heat-energized nano crystals which accelerate the destruction of microorganisms. Tests consistently demonstrate that a few seconds of application provides effective surface disinfection.

Clarke

Better, safer, cleaner, greener

At the heart of any green cleaning program is the idea of "reducing impact on the environment and health and safety." Sustainable practices protect facilities along with the environment. Several of Clarke''s automatic scrubbers, like the BOOST™ walk-behind and rider, require 50 to 70 percent fewer chemicals and water because they scrub floors clean in one pass and conserve cleaning solution within the scrub path. By continually reducing the cost to clean, facilities will be able to afford to clean more effectively. This translates to a better, safer, cleaner and greener environment. More and more, green cleaning is becoming synonymous with efficient and safer cleaning.
