Being Green Cleaning Certified

11 Oct 2018 11:33 AM | Maxine Kennaugh

Owning a green cleaning company that has been in operation of 15 years by a previous owner, it is important to me to be educated on the reasons why we use green cleaning products in our homes. The products we use as a company in our customers homes will benefit our employees, our customers and the environment. It is important to show our customers and current and new employees that we are Green Cleaning Certified. 

We only use non-toxic, biodegradable, environmentally safe green cleaning products in our customers homes. We are committed to improving the quality of life in our communities. We make every effort to provide outstanding service now and in the future because we believe that caring for the Earth and peoples health begins at home. 

Indoor air contaminants have been linked to pregnancy loss, SIDS, cancer, asthma and learning disabilities. Chlorine dioxins pose serious health risks that affect the brain, spinal cord, kidneys and liver. Petrochemicals are used to produce more common household cleaners. In a 2004 Body Burden Study, 287 toxins were found in the cord blood of newborn babies. Being educated by IJCSA Green Cleaning Directory will help me and my fellow colleagues know exactly what products we can use by completing the Green Cleaning Certificate. 

The Green Cleaning Certificate not only allows me to know what products to use in our customers homes but also within my own home. I have two small children and to keep them from inhaling any toxins from cleaning products is a top priority for me. We only use green cleaning products in our home and being certified gives me other ideas of what natural products to deodorise and clean with.
