Traditional cleaning services may leave your place of business sparkling clean, but the products and techniques can take a toll on your employees’ health and productivity— and your pocketbook. Making the switch to eco-friendly cleaning services allows you to improve your business by addressing these three important areas. You will immediately reap the benefits from giving up toxic cleaning chemicals in favor of eco-friendly products and practices. Here is what you can look forward to gaining by making this smart switch
If your janitorial service arrives on-site for daytime cleans (or overuses cleaning products during nighttime visits) your employees may end up exposed to potentially damaging chemicals for an extended period of time. Constant exposure to harsh cleaning chemicals can cause your employees to suffer from respiratory distress, skin rashes, burning eyes, and coughing. Furthermore, severe adverse effects can occur if any non-compatible chemicals end up mixed together during the cleaning process. Eco friendly cleaning products, on the other hand, utilize safe ingredients that generally do not cause adverse reactions, even after direct or prolonged exposure. When your employees feel healthy, you have a more positive office environment.
When your employees get a health-boost from a switch to eco-friendly cleaning, it is because most eco-friendly products do not contain any ingredients considered corrosive, alkaline, or acidic. This, in turn, makes employees more productive because they are less likely to be sick and sluggish on the job. Fewer sick days mean more productivity and better quality work.
Using the cleaning services offered by ServiceMaster Twin Cities also helps you qualify for LEED® points, so you have the means to make a measurable impact on your building’s efficiency. This, in turn, saves you money. Being LEED certifies shows your customers that you are committed to energy efficiency and to maintaining a healthy environment for your employees.
Eco friendly cleaning products utilize natural ingredients, which cost significantly less than highly processed chemical alternatives. The cost savings are typically passed on to you by your eco-friendly cleaning professionals. Furthermore, these gentle cleaning products and techniques reduce premature wear on your building materials, reducing the need for complete renovations in the future. The cost savings ensure that making the switch to a green cleaning company makes sense for your budget.
