    Being IJCSA Green Clean Certified has so many benefits for any business that uses cleaners. It simply means that we are all doing our part to protect ourselves and the environment from the effects of chemicals, paper, and plastics that continue to destroy our planet.

    For Bubble Bucket, being green certified will make all the difference to our customers and our community. In addition to the increased knowledge, we would be able to teach others the same great principles on which we founded our business to protect our health and the environment we live in. As cleaners ourselves, we are never aware of the effects that it takes on our overall health until its too late. We are here to stand at the fore front in our community to combat the negative practices that society taught us, of using the same products that can be purchased at any large retailer that have long labels of harmful chemicals. 

    We have learned a lot of information over the course of our journey, mostly provided by the EPA. The EPA regulates the safer choice program that helps us to decide which cleaning products are safe for us, our families, and our plant. One of the most interesting facts I have found is that all the chemicals we use become apart of our water systems which damage the aquatic life that lives there and the reproduction of those species. 

    In closing, this certification to us is a key component to any successful cleaning service and the motivation that we have to obtain it. Greener cleaning requires many hours of work and dedication to achieve. With a market leaning towards greener cleaning practices, we feel it will be imperative to embrace the challenge and protect our planet. As always dont forget about the wonderful environment provided by IJCSA, if your looking for any green cleaners in your area or need information, dont turn your cheek and follow the link.

    Blooborne Pathogen safety is important in the cleaning environment workplace. It is important for all employees and owners to be educated on the prevention of bloodborne pathogen exposure especially when working in a medical environment because exposure can lead to injury and even death.

    Important precaution is to be taken when cleaning medical offices such as wearing proper PPE including protective clothing/gowns, glove, eyewear, face shields, and facemasks. All PPE should be properly disposed after each use to prevent future infection. Workers are subject to risk of any SHARPS which refers to any type of needles, scalpel, razor, scissor, wire, rectractor, clamp, pin, staple, cutter, glass item, or anything that can potentially break skin if exposed.

    Exposure to sharps can lead to infections such as tuberculosis, diphtheria, herpes, malaria, ebola, HBV, HCV, HIV, and more. These conditions can be life-threatening illnesses.

    It is important for employees to know about bloodborne pathogens and how to handle material that may be contaminated. Adhering to methodologies like "Universal Precautions" and "Post Exposure Management" for the handling and disposing of contaminated materials can protect a company's employees from contracting bloodborne diseases like HIV and HBV.

    A cleaning company should have available Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and manuals for addressing any exposure to contaminates including immediate treatment instructions.  Having an understanding of the environment and the potential for exposure to risks can prevent illness and any other loss associated with the illness of an employee.

    A cleaning company that fails to inform and prepare its employees for exposure to contaminates potentially makes itself liable if employee contracts an illness while on the job.

    Janitorial services play a big part in home and work life. The best thing about janitorial services is that you will have a team of professional that are well - versed in using cleaning equipment and supplies that are needed to thoroughly do the job. Janitorial services always focus on to maintain and keep any kind of office or home healthy and clean. Janitorial services will help bridge the gap so that your business stays clean, and you don't have to divert your attention from another task.

    Your home or business is the place you are in everyday that reflect you and your character. The actual appearance of a home or business gives an overall impression to your guest or clients. This actual appearance not only relates to home or business structure and layout but also the cleanliness of surroundings. This is the reason why many owner homers and companies should hire a professional janitorial service to ensure that cleanliness is well maintained.

    Janitorial services play an important role in the overall function. A professional janitorial company can keep your home or business spic and span. This is vital for maintaining a sanitized and beautiful appearance. It is also beneficial for the health of those in the building, as sanitized surfaces decrease the risk of allergic reactions and bacteria. When these surfaces are properly cleaned and disinfected, they will also be free of viruses and debris. A janitorial company is trained and skilled to get the job done correctly.

    It is very important to clean all facilities; residential and commercial the same way as healthcare facilities.  In actuality some of the same people are going and coming in residential area and commercial facilities as well as healthcare facilities.   Meaning the same people are spreading the same germs and viruses as people in healthcare facilities.

     Whether a person knows it or not they are spreading germs to other people.  Therefore, using the same training and cleaning techniques are mandatory when it comes to cleaning either facility.  IJCSA have plenty of training for all types of facilities, just look at the link provided:

    You can implement medical cleaning practices into other residential and commercial cleaning situations by using medical grade products; therefore you can be certain all facilities are getting the same type of cleaning and disinfectant.

     Since we entered the COVID 19 pandemic, more cleaning businesses have implemented steps in staying safe as well as keeping their customers safe. Using green cleaning products is important for your business. Before servicing my residential clients I ask them are there any cleaning products they are allergic too. I am very careful which stores I purchase my cleaning items. I usually purchase environmentally items online stores that sell only organically green products. Once I started replacing chemical cleaners with green cleaners my business started to thrive. More and more customers were pleased with the smell which wasn't harmful to them and their pets. I now use essential oils mixed in with my solutions. I train my employees to use green cleaners. I teach my team appropriate cleaning procedures. Training includes issues relating to chemical and equipment safety. This is the first thing commercial businesses ask what type of products do you use. Sometimes that will determine if they want your service or not. It's all about introducing the right policies and procedures on how to clean for health and the environment.

    The cleaning staff plays an extremely important role in the health and wellbeing of our daily lives.  The lead janitor and janitorial staff ensures that our client is operating in a clean and safe environment.  Because we help create the environment for our customers, we ensure that our work is done in a manner that is safe and detailed.  With that being said, each area that we clean has site specific needs and the janitorial staff provides us with constant focus to these needs and much needed attention to detail.  We must never underestimate the importance of our roles in regards to the health and safety of the general public, our customers.

    The  janitorial staff has 4 main functions during day-to-day operations and while under assignment.  The janitorial staff may be responsible for opening the facility, policing the facility, performing tasks in specialized areas, or responding to special requests.  The janitorial staff also bears the responsibility to minimizing customer complaints by ensuring that our clients needs are being met.  Undoubtedly, the janitorial staff is the front line to any operation.

    Not only is the janitorial staff instrumental in ensuring a clean and safe environment by actively policing an assigned facility,  but the janitorial staff also becomes a part of the customer's daily staff as well.  Because of this, we must represent our clients with a cheerful, professional, and polished experience at all times.  Therefore, the communication of the janitorial staff is also imperative in the daily operation of our assigned job sites.  

    By now you recognize the importance of a knowledgeable and certified janitorial staff.  Take a moment to view certified cleaning companies in your area by visiting:
