January, 2013 Issue

When hiring a commercial cleaning contractor, it’s imperative to choose a green company for the health of your office environment. The office cleaning services you select should use only the highest quality ingredients in their cleaning products.
Green cleaning is the newest innovation in cleaning services, as it benefits both the environment and the health of employees. Deciding to use green office cleaning services is the best choice for your company and denotes your concern for your employee’s health, which will translate into more productivity in the office.
The choice to use green, eco-friendly cleaning services is not a difficult one as there are now many different companies deciding to use green products. The simplest ways to locate one are to locate them through the yellow pages, by performing a simple Google search or through asking your business associates about the types of cleaning services they use. These search methods should provide you with some solid leads to assist you in finding the ideal green cleaning service.
Once you’ve located a cleaning company you’d like to use, you’ll want to find out specifically what types of products it’s using, as this can vary widely from company to company. You may find that one cleaning company likes to use only organic products and may charge more because of this.
There are also companies that prefer to use completely natural products such as baking soda and apple cider vinegar to perform their cleaning duties. As you can see, the spectrum of options is very wide, so select according to your preferences. Often a good balance is to select a green company that uses commercial cleaning products that are free of dyes and harmful fumes.
There are many benefits in selecting a commercial cleaning service that uses green products. One includes the guarantee that your workplace will be free of harmful contaminants and fumes that linger in closed-off environments. A resulting benefit is that a cleaner workplace will result in employees who don’t become sick as often.
Your decision to use green cleaning services will reflect well in the eyes of your employees and will serve to boost employee morale. An added bonus is that you can advertise that your office is a green workspace in all of your marketing materials.
The decision to go green is more than just the latest fad. It demonstrates your company’s commitment to supporting a healthier earth and a more environmentally friendly workplace. There’s no additional cost to use a green company and the results will benefit your business in the long run.
