Green Commercial Cleaning

4 Reasons Why Using Green Cleaning Products Matters

Protect your facility and the people inside it. By choosing green commercial cleaning from Stratus Building Solutions, you make a positive impact. This impact encompasses the health of your clients, guests, and employees while also contributing to the environment. When we say “Green” this includes the materials, equipment, and processes we employ to clean your commercial building. For example, All Stratus green cleaning chemicals are green seal certified, making them healthier for your employees and customers. 

What Does Green Seal Certified Mean?

To meet this standard that means they are:

  • Non-Toxic
  • Biodegradable
  • Low-VOC
  • No Known Carcinogens
  • Fragrance-Free

These products are also certified effective when compared to other competing cleaners. They still get the job done, and done well, without the need for harmful chemicals. Furthermore, we minimize waste through our dilution control system that ensures the proper amount is used. The following are additional reasons that green cleaning methods matter.

  1. Green Cleaning Improves the Indoor Air Quality

Breathe easy inside of your commercial building. Whether working in a school, warehouse, office, or medical building, everyone deserves a clean environment where they can focus without discomfort. The truth is that Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are present in most commercial cleaning products. VOCs cause headaches, respiratory irritation, and other uncomfortable symptoms to the occupants of your building. By using green cleaning products that do not contain these harmful compounds, the quality of the air is improved so the aforementioned irritations are avoided. 

  1. Green Cleaning Helps Protect the Environment

Your business or commercial building is an environment in and of itself, but we are not just talking about your immediate surroundings. Instead, we mean the environment of the world that we live in as a whole. Green cleaning practices avoid chemicals that permeate and potentially harm the atmosphere. In addition to minimizing the presence of harsh chemicals, we also reduce the overall use of water.

  1. Green Cleaning Increases Recycling & Compliance 

Paper and plastic make our lives easier, but too much of a good thing can be bad. For this reason, Stratus promotes recycling by making us of:

  • 100% Post-Consumer Recycled Janitorial Utility Cans & Mop Buckets
  • Post-Consumer Recycled Paper Products For Kitchens & Restrooms
  • Paperless Proposals & Invoice Systems
  • Recycling systems and waste removal

Stratus franchisees also identify sources of contamination and pollution so that next steps can be taken to make improvements. 

  1. Green Cleaning Reduces Cross-Contamination 

The materials that we use promote a better clean. With microfiber cleaning cloths and mops we are able to trap more dirt, so it is completely removed from your facility, as opposed to just being pushed around to different parts of the floor or other surfaces. Additionally, we employ a color-coded system to prevent cross-contamination.
