Janitorial Supplies that are Eco-Friendly

There are several reasons why your business might choose to use eco-friendly or “green” cleaning products for commercial cleaning – but here are a few more. Typically, office cleaning products contain harmful chemicals that can impact your employees. On the surface they may appear to be clean, but the chemicals from harsher cleaning products often result in undetectable fumes by smell, and can lower indoor air quality within your office building. Cleaners that are not eco-friendly have also been known to potentially cause problems such as irritation of the eyes, lethargic behavior and skin irritations. If consistently used, they could eventually lead to diseases or other health conditions.

Some of these issues are dependent upon the type of building or workspace, actual employee job duties, and how long employees occupy the building.  As an example, hospital staff are often exposed to these cleaning chemicals for a much longer duration because the more frequent cleanings, longer hours and different areas of work.  Consider this example when you are evaluating your office environment. In addition to eliminating harsh chemicals, “green” cleaners can improve the health of employees and create a healthier environment for customers as well.
