    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.

    Did you know washing your hands with antibacterial soap is not any better than washing with regular soap? Frequent use of antibacterial soaps and cleaners can promote bacterial resistances to antibiotics. Which means easier to become sick and harder to get well again. They may even play a roll in messing with your hormonal system and thyroid. All from using a simple cleaning product. We are hit with over 300 toxins before we are even born. If you had a choice would you continue to add to that count?

    Government regulations do not require ingredients to be listed on any cleaning products. Leading a misrepresentation as to what you are really buying and using for your home. Manufacturers are not obligated by U.S. law to list all ingredients in consumer products. Products that are labeled "green" do not necessarily mean they are safer. For example, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has a list of products that meet its Safer Choice requirements for cleaning and other needs. They include cleaning products for home and vehicles. it is best to do your research to make sure the Green clean you are aiming for is the one you are getting.  

    There is never a need for harsh chemicals to be used inside our home, offices or even vehicles. Replacing harmful toxic chemicals with non toxic, biodegradable, safe cleaners will greatly reduce the risk of over exposure, diseases, and provide you and your family with better air quality, safer products, purer environment, and cheaper on the dollar. Take the small leap today for a healthier lifetime.

    We have been asked in the past, what is green cleaning? Can it really help protect us and the environment? Do the products work as well as mainstream cleaners? Implementing green cleaning products and services would not only secure the trust in future clients who prefer these services but will also help those who do ask these questions feel at ease to try a more healthier and safer way to clean. Safety of our staff and clients are a priority. Knowing the product you are using, how to use the effectively and showing the client not only does it work, it is also better for your health as well, This allows for under educated clients to gain a new understanding on the toxins that are emitted through the use of most mainstream brands and the heath affects it could have on their own bodies. 

    How to implement green cleaning into our business we must be knowledgeable of the products that you are using. Which products is for what type of cleaning job and if they really are (on the commercial product side) a green cleaning product. The chemicals which are in the products you must know in order to wean those out that are not true. There are also natural herb and oil cleaner that would be a true green cleaning investment without chemicals at all. Offer the green cleaning services to existing clients and get their feedback on what they liked and didn't like to make adjustments and improvements on the products you use and how you use them. It is a safer, easy to budget and effective way to help all that is around you for a healthier more manageable way to clean.

    Adopting a "green" model for your cleaning business has financial, practical, and moral benefits; for the customer, for their customers, your employees, and for you. As the increasing concern for the environment develops, customers are looking out for "green brands" and other ways to help conserve their spaces and decrease the negative impact on the environment. Adopting eco-friendly practices into your business adds a selling point for your brand, can boost employee morale, save costs, and gain you recognition for efforts in conserving the ecosystem. Here's a simple rundown on how you can make your cleaning business "green".

    Start by using more natural cleaning solutions, instead of the conventional tools that are usually releasing harmful chemicals. Baking soda, lemon, vinegar, are just three examples of components used in green cleaning. When these are mixed with water or oil, they provide effective solutions to a few areas, such as window and furniture cleaning, as well as deep polishing of counter tops, sinks, ovens, and other surfaces. Light some candles or burn some incense for an organic, green way to cleanse the air around you. Consider installing low-flush toilets and showers for your home or any venture, save costs on water and help save water as well. Most importantly, train your employees to adopt these green practices as habit, make it a company standard, and you'll be running a green cleaning program in no time.

    The importance of bloodborne pathogen knowledge lies between severe sickness and or death. To stress this topic will ensure safety of all  cleaning employees and staff. Having every member of your team armed with knowledge is the best defense. Knowing that all staff are adhering to all protective practices is the best offense.

    Universal precaution will not protect an employee with a lack knowledge of how to protect and prevent themselves from pathogenic microorganisms. All elements of protective practices, such as equipment safety, using disposable safety wear, not consuming food or beverage, not allowing bodily fluids to come in contact with carriers, and lastly never compress bags for "sharps", will prevent accidents and maintain a safe working environment. 

    As an employer it is the companies responsibility to uphold and execute all OSHA requirements. Expectations of proper procedure being followed should an employee be exposed consist of, filling out all required documents as well as keeping the information files for three years after the exposure. It is the companies goal to provide a safe and healthy work environment.

    Green cleaning is when we use products that are safe for the environment and do not emit any pollutants when used. It is important to use green cleaning not only for the environment and our planet but for the health of our customers, employees, and the general public. 

    Having a toddler and baby at home, we wanted to make sure the products we were using in our home were safe. There are many surfaces little fingers and mouths can touch in your house and knowing that the cleaning products you are using are non-toxic will put your mind at ease.

    Pregnant women and children that are five years old and younger are very susceptible to harmful chemicals in the air. When making the transition from using traditional cleaners to environmentally friendly ones, you’re creating a much safer atmosphere for the whole family. 

    You can reduce pollutants in your home by better insulation and by using the safest most natural ingredients when cleaning.

    The importance of cleaning employees and staff knowing about bloodborne pathogens is mainly for the avoidance of contraction of these infectious  microorganisms. 

    All cleaning industry employees and staff is vulnerable to expose to these infectious microorganisms not only for health care facilities and hospitals. It can  be transferred through needles, mucus membrane, or mouth. 

    These infectious micro-organisms can cause hepatitis B (HBV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Care must be taken all the time in handling rubbish especially with needles and cleaning blood if somebody got cut.
