What is Green Cleaning

“Going green” is a phrase that has been increasing in popularity for some time now, including within the cleaning industry. In recent years, this has meant quite a push towards cleaning products that are more environmentally friendly, with reduced impacts on our ecosystem. When coupled with the rise in allergens included in some common cleaning products, the importance of natural cleaning solutions is clearer than ever before. Fortunately, when it comes to your business, green cleaning can be a great option for clients and employees alike.

Why Go Green?

In the age of Covid-19, it is essential to ensure your business is as clean and sanitary as possible. Unfortunately, one common misconception is that natural, “green cleaners” don’t perform as well against common pathogens as traditional methods. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Research continues to conclude that greener methods are just as reliable as typical cleaning methods. 

Aside from green cleaners’ efficacy against bacteria and viruses, there are a few other reasons to turn to green cleaning for your business. These include: 

  • Better for the environment. Green products are made with non-toxic, ozone-safe, and/or biodegradable ingredients. These types of cleaners do not cause the air and water pollution caused by traditional cleaning products.
  • Better for your workplace. Harsh ingredients found in many cleaners are linked to health issues such as skin rashes, eye irritation, and airway damage. Using green cleaning can help to improve indoor air quality and contact dermatitis by using gentler ingredients safe for human contact. As a result, green cleaning is safer for anyone who enters your workplace.
