What is Green Cleaning? The federal government has defined green cleaning as “products and services that have a lesser or reduced effect on human health and the environment when compared with competing products and services that serve the same purpose.” This definition is known as Executive Order 13101 and was instituted to protect the health of our planet as well as its inhabitants. Star Facility Services, Inc. loves planet earth and its sustainable values.
Star Facility Services, Inc. has long been aware of the global impact commercial cleaning products can have on our planet and has always used Eco-friendly alternatives that have put Star Facility Services, Inc. at the forefront in the green cleaning arena. We also ensure that the products we choose strike a unique balance between sustainability, performance and price. That’s why we choose our cleaning products based on the following environmental standards:
Octyl or Nonyl Phenol Ethoxylates (APE’s, OPE’s, NPE’s),
No Ozone depleting compounds,
Zero to low hazardous waste characteristics,
Low or no Volatile Organic Compound Content (VOCs),
Bio-accumulative and toxic chemicals,
and Recyclable containers.
Green Cleaning or Conventional Chemicals
We use green cleaning products that are free of harsh chemicals like teratogens and that are known to cause birth defects, cause cancer and mutagens that alter DNA. Benefits are overall improvement of air quality, the reduction of wastes, and the absence of phosphates and phosphonates.
Other Factors to Consider
The EPA rates indoor air quality as a top-five health risk and estimates that two-thirds of our buildings are rated “SICK” with over 100 million lost work days from poor indoor air quality. With 80% of our time being spent indoors, there are many good reasons why you should keep your facility in perfect healthy shape with a scheduled Star Facility Services, Inc. cleaning program.
