    Ever walked into a building after someone has thoroughly cleaned it ? Smelled that fresh bleach smell. As you look around and see how organized everything is and still that bleach and household cleaning smell. 

    How about ever made the mistake of mixing Bleach with another chemical. Then get this burning in your chest, find it hard to breath? This can come from the harmful chemicals you have mixed together and in most cases the same effects can happen if the chemicals are used separately.

    Which is why most companies provide a go Green or eco Friendly cleaning service. Keeps the air fresh, more productive. Going green is alot healthier than using your everyday products.

    If you are looking for a Green Cleaning Service feel free to check out the IJCSA directory for a green cleaning company near you Green Cleaning Service . Green cleaning is better because at least you don't  have to wear face mask to try and protect your eyes, lungs and waterways .

         Good customer service means helping customers efficiently, in a friendly manner. It’s essential to be able to handle issues for customers and do your best to ensure they are satisfied. Providing good service is one of the most important things that can set your business apart from the others of its kind.

          In my experience, good customer service is always being positive and willing to assist your customers to the best of your ability. I remember one customer in particular, from early in my career, who I spent a tremendous amount of time with, helping to outfit her home office with electronics. She was working with a limited budget, but wanted to start with quality merchandise she could add to as her business grew. She thanked me and took the time to send a note to my supervisor the next day. I don’t think I realized until that point how much people appreciate good customer service.

          IJCSA put their customer as their main priority and always make sure that they get the best service and satisfaction expected from their respected companies. Professionalism is also practice to create a good first impression to the customers of the company.

    In the modern world, climate change and environmental preservation has more importance and prevalence than ever before. As people are beginning to see the consequences of pollution both in the environment as a whole and in their own personal health, it has become important for janitorial services, such as those found here, to address the concerns of maintaining cleanliness without sacrificing eco-friendliness or health.

    Yanan Eco-Friendly Cleaning Services is located in an area whose culture has emphasized conservation and green living for years. As such, clients looking for cleaning services know the value of green cleaning. With green cleaning certification and the knowledge afforded to us from it, our business can address these issues successfully.

    But green cleaning goes beyond business; it helps reduce our impact on the environment. Standard industrial cleaners contain chemicals that will inevitably end up in our oceans or our trash fills and negatively impact the planet. Ammonia, a chemical found in many industrial and household general cleaners, adds nitrogen to the environment, which can have toxic effects on plants, fish, and animals. Alkyl benzene, commonly found in surface cleaners, is very slow to biodegrade and produces carcinogens and reproductive tocins like benzene during the manufacturing process. Phosphorus, which can be found in toilet bowl cleaners, can upset the balance of water-based ecosystems. Nitrogen, phosphorus, and ammonia have all been labeled as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) by the EPA, which both attributes to smog and negatively impacts local ecosystems.

    Our health, too, can improve with the implementation of green cleaning. Natural cleaning solutions and eco-friendly products tend to be less harsh than standard chemicals, which have been found by the EPA to irritate the lungs, eyes, and skin upon exposure. People with asthma especially can be affected by the harsh fumes and smells. VOCs, the EPA has found, can also impact indoor air quality and expose businesses and homes to higher levels of pollutants. Switching to green products will improve the health of both our team and our clients.

    We at GME Cleaning Solutions understand the importance of offering our clients Green Cleaning Options. Green cleaning benefits the health of the employees, our clients, and the environment. We will implement this by using a three-step approach. 

    These three steps include using only Green products, properly training staff, and using the most efficient cleaning practices and equipment to reduce waste and chemical use. In addition to strictly following the three step approach, we will be using recycled paper products, microfiber cloths, mop heads, and dusters.

    In the world today, there are literally more bacteria than there are people and each one of those people carry trillions of microorganisms. The average 200 pound adult has around 64 ounces of bacteria in their body alone! There are indeed good bacteria in our beautifully engineered bodies, but we must be educated about the harmful bacteria and stay vigilant to prevent the spreading of infectious disease.

    Did you know that in Japan, school children are, not necessarily required, but more so taught how to clean and do so by carrying out activities such as: dusting and sweeping their classrooms, cleaning doors, windows, hallways and sometimes even bathrooms?! The cultural values of cleanliness are allocated at a young age to ensure each child is properly educated of the hidden world that is even much smaller than they are.

    Now, when I was a child in growing up in American school, I don't think I was ever made to clean up anything (unless the mess was made by myself), especially bathrooms, for that matter! Could you imagine the disturbed, puzzled look on your parents face if you had to tell them you were suspended from school for not cleaning the bathrooms during "Clean:30"? Most kids in America don't know the names of the great people who clean our schools and offices.

    I believe, if we incorporate cleaning values into our school systems and educate our children on bacterial infectious disease through actual practice and exercise, the valued knowledge could propel all of us to better understand the secret world we cannot see with the naked eye, yet can still harm and even kill us.

     The use of common hazardous household cleaning products contributes to indoor air pollution, is linked to birth defects, dermatitis, poisonings, asthma, cancer and other health effects.  

    There is also a  substantial misuse of household products by way of negligent practices such as reusing bottles, using mislabeled bottles, using common hazardous household chemicals in confined areas without enough ventilation, not donning gloves or masks.  These all-too-common practices, practiced by the majority of us, lead to unknowingly increased and extremely detrimental health risks.   

    Asides from the human health risks, we also contribute to the demise of the planet with our constant use of the chemicals and the irresponsible way in which we use and dispose of them.  We contribute to algae blooms, global warming, ozone depletion, soil nutrient depletion, water contamination, increased antibiotic resistant bacterium and more.  

    Green cleaning is the process of choosing cleaning products that are better for both people and the planet. The switch from hazardous household chemical cleaning to green cleaning is easy, economical and the smart thing to do for you, your family, employees and the environment.   

    For some homes, green cleaning means that they only use substances like baking soda, ​vinegar, and lemons to clean the home surfaces. Some green cleaning products may certify that their items are fair trade, meaning that the product meets certain environmental and labor standards by those who produce the products.  If you or someone you know would like to know more about Green Cleaning or would like to hire a Green Cleaning Company, visit the IJCSA website here or the IJCSA Green Cleaning Service Directory here
