Green Cleaning Program:
Green cleaning is defined as cleaning to protect the health of occupants without harming the environment through the use of products and processes associated with cleaning.
Green cleaning helps improve indoor air quality and reduce health problems that traditional products and processes can cause. With green cleaning, building occupants experience fewer incidences of irritations or sensitivities to the indoor environment.
Studies have shown that facilities that go green have healthier occupants and employees, higher worker productivity, lower operating costs and a positive environmental impact.
