“Going green” has been a buzz phrase for many years now; in all sectors aiming to move toward a more sustainable, environmentally conscious way of life. Going green touches on all areas of janitorial services, from cleaning products to equipment and sanitary items.
Stratus Building Solutions franchisees offer our distinctive Stratus Green Clean commercial cleaning program inclusive and at no additional cost with all of our janitorial service contracts. Since 2009, Stratus has offered this forward-thinking benefit to all of their clients after originally creating it to complement Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design projects (LEED) and the Green Building Rating System developed by the U.S. Green Building Council. After extensive research, we realized that it was in the interest of our franchisees, customers, and the environment to introduce this as our company's commercial cleaning standard.
Electrostatic Sprayer Disinfecting
Electrostatic spray technology is a new way to apply cleaners, sanitizers, and disinfectants to help facilities treat surfaces, often in less time and with better coverage than traditional cleaning methods. The technology is fairly new to the world of office cleaning but is well established in other areas, including agriculture, automotive, and tanning industries.
The sprayers work by electrostatically charging liquids, such as sanitizers and disinfectants, as they pass through the spray nozzle. This generates charged droplets that repel one another and actively seek out a surface. The charge allows them to coat all sides of a surface, creating a uniform layer of spray, including in hard to reach areas that other manual cleaners may miss. The result is an optimal level of clean.
UV-C Sanitizing Wand
UV, or ultraviolet light, can be used to eradicate various types of mold, dust mites, bacteria, and viruses, from MRSA to E.coli. Most commonly used in hospitals and industrial facilities in the past, the development of the UV sanitation wand allows janitorial companies to implement the benefits of such a tool in their cleaning services in a wider range of locations.
VCT Floor Cleaning Technology
Your facility’s flooring surfaces are subject to tough wear and can become damaged over time. Most are protected with several thin coats of polymer or wax finish, providing a glossy, reflective coating that can be enhanced or restored with mechanical buffing. This film can wear out with time. To maintain the coating and the floor surface underneath, Stratus Building Solutions' hard floor care services use a unique blend of state of the art technology and cleaning methods to maintain or restore the integrity of your flooring.
Our methods minimize the use of high-pressure cleaning that can damage surfaces, strip paint or coatings, and loosen grout. Instead, we utilize the industry's best equipment with unique wash, scrub, and dry technology that uses 90 percent less water and detergents than traditional cleaning methods. Our franchisees work greener by using less energy, less water, and fewer harsh chemicals that can damage the environment.
In the age of the pandemic, commercial cleaning is no longer a luxury and these tools can help keep your employees safe. Request a free estimate today!
