    Janitorial services have to pay attention to green cleaning in today's world, where environmental awareness is high. As more people care about the environmental effects of their choices, they also expect janitorial companies to follow eco-friendly and sustainable standards. Being a certified green cleaning company means more than just using eco-friendly practices; it shows that a company cares about lowering its carbon footprint and improving sustainability. This care extends beyond the facilities that are cleaned—it's about protecting the health of the earth and all its inhabitants. By opting for green cleaning methods, companies prove that they are environmentally conscious and want to make a difference in the world.

    Enhancing Brand Reputation and Customer Trust

    Green Cleaning Certification enhances a company's brand image. In a time when consumers are more and more choosing products based on a company’s environmental impact, having a reputable certification can draw in more customers. It shows that the company is trustworthy and dependable, and that it uses products and practices that are better for the environment. This can be very effective in marketing campaigns, as it appeals to the increasing number of eco-conscious consumers. Additionally, businesses that are certified often qualify for government and corporate contracts that require green certifications, thus creating new opportunities for business expansion.

    Compliance with Regulations and Access to New Markets

    One more important benefit is following environmental rules at the local, national, and sometimes international level. Many areas are making laws stricter around chemical use, waste management, and sustainability practices in business operations. Companies that have green cleaning certification are often more prepared for regulatory changes, lowering the chance of facing fines for non-compliance and appealing to governmental and large corporate contracts that demand such standards. In addition, this forward-thinking approach to sustainability can create opportunities in new markets, especially where green certification is a requirement for doing business.

    Improving Workplace Health and Safety

    Finally, green cleaning certification has many health benefits. Conventional cleaning chemicals can often cause problems for the lungs, skin, and other parts of the body. Green cleaning practices lower the amount of harmful chemicals that staff and clients are exposed to, making the work environment safer and healthier. This can lead to fewer health insurance claims, less absenteeism, and higher productivity among employees who enjoy working in a non-toxic environment. Furthermore, a healthier workplace enhances a company's reputation as a kind and ethical employer.

    To sum up, getting green cleaning certification is not only an environmental gesture; it is a smart business choice with many benefits. From improving brand image and increasing market opportunities to cutting expenses and raising health standards, the pros are obvious. For companies that want to succeed in the current business environment, adopting green cleaning certification is not just a possibility—it's a vital move toward lasting success.

    Bloodborne pathogens are microorganisms present in human blood and bodily fluids that can lead to dangerous diseases in those who come into contact with them. Types of bloodborne pathogens include: HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C. 

    Those in the cleaning field are especially at risk for coming into contact with bloodborne pathogens since they may be tasked with cleaning up and sanitizing areas where bodily fluids were present. 

    OSHA (The Occupational Safety and Health Administration) has created industry standards which help employers and employees create a plan to remain safe on the job. By understanding the dangers of bloodborne pathogens and adhering to OSHA guidelines, employees can decrease their risk of exposure and do their jobs safely and effectively.

    Properly cleaning healthcare facilities is so important to keep everyone safe and healthy. This includes: patients, visitors of patients, healthcare workers, as well as the cleaning personnel for these facilities. When a loved one has to go to the doctor or be admitted into hospital, you want the peace of mind of knowing you and your loved one will be safe from germs and bacteria as much as possible. 

    Along with following healthcare protocol for patient health and safety in general, it is also important for the cleaning personnel to follow strict and proper regimens to help in the process of a clean and safe environment for everyone that comes in contact or indirect contact with a potential infection. As a professional healthcare cleaner, it is my responsibility to make sure I am doing my part to keep others as well as myself safe by doing the following with all healthcare facilities. I will wear the proper PPE, use the correct disinfecting products that are registered with the EPA, clean all high touch surfaces, wash hands regularly, and always put on a new pair of latex gloves before entering a new patients room. 

    By following the procedures mentioned above I am confident that proper cleaning and disinfecting will help with the spread of germs and bacteria in a healthcare facility. I am thankful  for with the opportunity to learn and also for allowing my business to be a part of this great organization.

    Below are four reasons you should consider a certified commercial cleaner

    1) Education- they know what they are doing. The education requirement to become a IJCSA certified residential cleaner is quite a bit for most people.  This education is easier for some than others is focused around chemical safety, heath considerations, proper PPE and knowing when to use certain techniques to give a show room finish.

    2) Chemical Safety Chemical safety is paramount to an IJCSA member's ability to serve the customer.  The key advantage to the IJSCA is the information on green cleaning approaches and the consideration of the environment when cleaning.  Everyone is capable of cleaning, but are they capable of leaving a safer environment when they are done?

    3) Consistent Approach - Attention to Detail Because the training of the IJSCA is so detailed, you are able to know the cleaner has been trained on the little things.  The bottom of the refrigerator is an often overlooked area.  Another is the sliding glass door.  These ares are left in a condition that you know attention was paid, and a checklist was followed thoroughly.

    4) Ability to Solve Problems

    IJCSA members have a unique ability to solve problems faced by the day to day activies.  For instance a residential cleaner will have knowledge of carpet cleaning solutions.  In many cases, the cleaner can help you set up an appointment and give you ideas on how to deal with an issue before it escalates into a much bigger issue.

    The IJCSA is a group of people committed to making indoor air quality better by using safe chemistries, reducing pathogens and dust.  While improving the overall quality of life for folks by providing a clean environment.  We will strive to ensure you are happy with our service, we will continue to work with our partner companies to improve the service, and if you have any suggestions for improvement we would be glad to hear about how we can improve.
