      We would help our clients to understand the safe use of environmentally-preferable products like vacuum cleaners with high-filtration filters, floor machines with dust-control systems that capture impurities which pollute the indoor environment and microfiber cleaning, impacting positively not only on the lives of humans but the animal world and the environment at large.

      The implementation of regular training programs for our personnel to learn the most-up-to-date cleaning procedures places us in a vantage position to apply green cleaning principles.

      We provide an open, effective communication channel among chemical suppliers, building occupants and management.

    When it comes to cleaning residences and commercial entities, the priority should be the improvement of the overall health of the occupants, the environment as well as the buildings. This is where green cleaning comes in because of the principles it employs such as the use of fewer toxic chemicals and environmentally responsive equipment. 

    When green cleaning programs are implemented as professed by our company, the health and safety of everyone in the buildings we clean is directly impacted, contributing to happier, healthier and productive family and staff members.

    Having a Green Cleaning Program and investing in educating businesses and staff about green cleaning practices in today's cleaning industry and economy can be a savvy, profitable, and morally responsible maneuver for cleaning services owners. 

    Green Cleaning Programs leverage a trend currently in favor of environmentally friendly practices that have proven to have economic benefits for business owners and their occupants due to overall improved health resulting in less sick days. This indirectly adds value to any program because it generally produces the same results of a traditional cleaning program in terms of overall cleanliness.

    When someone asks, why go green?  I always make sure to tell them about all the toxic chemicals that are in their everyday cleaning products.  I let them know the effects its having on their different surfaces and to their body.  For example, many people love Windex.  But Windex contains ammonia.  Which is a skin irritant, it can cause headaches, it adds nitrogen to the environment among other things.

    The average American household uses about 63 synthetic chemical products.  When you use less harmful products, it cuts down on many human health risks.  There are many things right in many people's cabinet they can use.  For example, vinegar and water can be used to clean windows. One way less toxic than the other but yields the same results. By going green, it benefits the public and environment.

    Cleaning your carpet is an essential way of maintaining clean air in your home. Carpets are part of our homes and are often not properly cleaned. They contain harmful allergens that can become problematic and life threatening when breathed by children and pets. Having your carpets cleaned regularly can become an economical way to preserve and maintain your flooring investment.

    One way to effectively clean your carpets is using a carpet extractor. Now I know that having a carpet extractor is not exactly high on your things to purchase and with that being said there’s a large list of certified well trained carpet cleaning companies in most areas. Here at the IJCSA you can find a qualified company to help clean and protect your home and carpet. Cleaning your carpet regularly helps with air quality, releases trapped airborne pollutants that are infiltrated into your home carpet.

    Green cleaning, the growing international movement celebrated for it's departure from most traditional cleaning products in favor of environment and consumer friendly products, has proven to be a responsible, beneficial, and profitable avenue for both cleaning service owners delivering the service and business owners seeking it.

    Common consumer products can be rife with chemicals that are well-known to be toxic, irritants, or generally compromise the health of anyone consistently in contact with them. A consumer in a business or an employee of that business continuously exposed to traditional, and sometimes toxic cleaning products represents a potential loss in productivity in your employees due to sickness and the potential loss of a customer due exposure to products known to contain irritants. Simple glass and all-purpose cleaners may contain chemicals such as Isopropyl alcohol which can irritate the skin, eyes, nose, and throat, or butoxyethanol which can cause headaches, dizziness, lightheadedness, and confusion.

    Utilizing green cleaning methods has proven to have both economic and health benefits for businesses in this era. Exposure to these techniques have shown to improve the productivity and morale of the facility occupants, reduce liabilities from worker safety issues, and improve the health of the building occupants, which represents an overall increase in revenue and builds trust and cohesion within that facility.

    Although it may be far fetched to forecast a future composed solely of green products, the market for green cleaning is growing, thriving, and will at the very least be offered along with traditional cleaning techniques for consumers to choose henceforth.

    Green Cleaning Program means combining certified cleaners, tools, equipment, training and cleaning processes to reduce the environmental footprint for a better environment and a much more pleasant work environment. We  understand the implementation of a successful green cleaning program is one that involves a team approach between facility management and Vito Clean. To be successful it takes the cooperation of everyone that cleans, maintains and occupies the building.

    Vito Clean is ready to implement our Green Cleaning Program at your Property.  Whether you are working toward LEED certification or merely want to promote a healthy, green cleaning lifestyle, Vito Clean can deliver the service that meets your needs. Vito Cleans green cleaning procedures are focused on preventative measures. An important goal is to trap and remove dirt and pollutants before they enter the building and prevent cross-contamination. In addition, particles and chemicals in the air are minimized mechanically by capturing dust and dirt, using course spray application process and applying the cleaner to the cloth rather than spraying the surface to be cleaned. A non chemical cleaning system accurately dilutes the product. We focus on touch-points such as doorknobs and fixtures. Restroom disinfectant is applied properly to ensure dwell time, so soil is thoroughly removed and fewer products used.

    Implementing a green cleaning program, into a cleaning business model, offers many advantages to business owners and customers alike. Green cleaning is healthy cleaning! Harmful chemicals can be found in many readily available cleaning agents that cause both long, and short-term health problems. ("Cleaning Product 'Hall Of Shame'," 2012) The expanse of communicative technologies has facilitated an increased awareness of the negative consequences of toxic cleaning agents. An educated market means a navigation to greener and healthier cleaning solutions.  

    The benefits of green cleaning are not confined to health and wellbeing—as environmental regulations increase, so too will the cost of non-green cleaning agents. ("Challenge of Going Green," 1994) Cleaning businesses with the foresight to implement green cleaning practices now will financially benefit in the future.
