    I have been in the cleaning field for twenty years ,  over time I have built my career as a cleaning professional I have made great strides  in my cleaning career through dedication and hard work I have built a great clientele base over the years whom I value you greatly and attribute for my greater success . I am OCD a germophobic by nature my instinct is clean , I am a strong innovative cleaner that knows how to bust through and remove grime , always a front runner in safety for me and my clients .I am a  detail oriented cleaner  and  have exceptional organizing techniques as well as design I always follow through with a showroom finish on every cleaning job I complete .

    I was a young single mother my only skill at the time was being a mom and homemaker working endless jobs to make ends meet while attending classes  and paying my way through college I worked hotels and other no end jobs barely making ends meet then I discovered I could clean on my own I landed a new construction contract through my fathers long time best friend it didn't take long until the money started flowing in I have been building different avenues ever since cleaning residential ,  commercial ,  and new construction .

      I can honestly say the last five years have been my best growth and strongest clientele base I ever had I have built my growth through strong customer service skills dedication and hard work has gained me great PR  word of mouth and referrals through past and current clients is what has created my biggest growth thus far  . My clients are  people that I have grown to love knowing and caring for their needs for so many years some more recent than others  I consider them friends as well as an extension of family when you are working for the same costumers throughout the years would be hard not too in my opinion  . Up until a few months ago I was very confident within my skill and experience as a cleaning professional to clean and disinfect for my clients keeping them safer every clean giving extra protection through the cold and flu season then Covid - 19 came , when I realized  how serious the pandemic was I suspended business immediately even before the state started shutting down I knew this virus was bigger than anything I had ever experienced . My instinct was to immediately start looking for more astringent PPE for proper protection for my personal protection as well as my clients protection I immediately thought to seek training and certification for bio hazard cleaning  did a quick search online and found IJCSA I was navigating the website and found I could get certified in biohazard cleaning but first I would have to get certified in hazardous chemicals customer service , residential cleaning specialist  then move on to bio hazard cleaning certification  IJCSA also has many other certifications available . I have had a lot of fun taking these refresher course study for these certifications has reminded me of the importance of chemical safety and the different resources out their for us professionals .

    For me the key advantages of hiring a cleaning professional that has passed the IJCSA RCS Certification is for safety professionalism  and good cleaning performance providing a better experience when hiring a house cleaner . hiring  a IJCSA RCS Certified cleaner advantages in safety is a front runner in this dangerous time with Covid - 19 looming in my opinion is a must for a cleaning professional to train for safety in all aspects IJCSA RCS Certified cleaners certify in bloodborne pathogens , hazardous chemical , cleaning skill and safety definitely is an advantage for you to insure to your clients you are ready and qualified for the job moving forward .

    Using green, eco-friendly cleaning products can improve the air quality, reduce health and environmental concerns and sets the standard for environmentally responsible behavior. Contributing to a well thought out green cleaning practice will benefit not only client, but it will also ensure that you are reducing your impact on the environment. Your clients will appreciate this and maybe even start using green cleaning products themselves! green cleaning service directory

    To implement a good green cleaning service program you must first conduct an audit of the facility or area in which you have been hired to clean. This will help you assess which areas need the most improvement and build a comprehensive plan around this. Next is to train the cleaning staff with the use of chemical and equipment handling and cleaning procedures. Afterwards, review the progress to make sure the green cleaning program is successful and implement any changes.

      Janitors and janitorial staff of commercial cleaning companies play an important part in our lives, even though many of us don't realize it.

      Janitorial companies that employ these janitors and janitorial staff members are responsible for protecting the occupants of Office buildings, Medical buildings, Banks, Schools, Day cares, etc. They are also protecting the customers that visit these places, by cleaning with the proper chemicals and using the correct cleaning techniques these janitors and janitorial staff members can effectively remove the bacteria, viruses and other contaminants.  The benefits of a properly cleaned building is fewer illnesses, sick days and higher morale to name a few.  For its guests it is more inviting and helps prevent them from carrying germs and viruses out and spreading them to the public.

      It may seem easy to accomplish these things, but some janitors and janitorial staffers are under trained or improperly trained.  In fact some janitorial companies are just concerned about making money, not about the health of a building or its occupants...sad but true.  Others take what they do seriously and even seek certification like IJCSA to show that they are committed to quality and cleanliness of the accounts they service.  Cleaning has a lot of health risks because of the numerous chemicals and Bloodborne pathogens or other possibly infectious material that is used and handled on a daily basis.  It is also a physical job because many spend hours on their feet, bending, stooping, lifting repeatedly.  Many don't realize the demands of this profession, thusly one reason why it has a high turnover rate.

      So next time you enter a building and you notice how well it is cleaned, tell a janitor or someone who can hopefully let that janitor know about the compliment...they seldom hear one-

    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.

      At Pure Green Janitorial we use smart routes to clean facilities using the least amount of gas. We also strive to be a zero landfill company or as close to it as possible. We use cleaning tools and equipment that provide longevity and less chemicals (such as eco floor scrubbers and rags that allow us to clean glass/mirrors with just water). When purchasing cleaning chemicals we consider packaging, third party certification, pollution in manufacturing process (i.e. toxic by products), and can it be 100% recycled once empty.

      Employees are trained to use eco-friendly practices by not overusing chemicals and folding rags to get maximum amount of use, which means fewer loads of laundry, detergent and less water. Employees also have access at each location to a set of clean cards that are specific to each location. These clean cards cover what chemicals to use where along with the proper equipment and procedures for each area. This helps ensure consistent cleaning in case a new or seasoned cleaner forgets something they don't have to guess. It also helps a supervisor or floater that has not been to that account in a while.

      Pure Green Janitorial continuously monitors and updates any and all aspects of our green program when improvements are made to chemicals, equipment, and cleaning practices.

      Pure Green Janitorial will always strive to exceed and redefine the norm.

    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.

    Medical cleaning has a very in-depth cleaning regimen that needs to be followed to keep medical workers, patients, and visitors safe. These cleaning practices can be implemented into our company to ensure that our clients and employees stay as healthy as possible. Germs, virus's, and infections are found everywhere including their home and office. 

    Following the cleaning process that the medical field uses can help keep employees safe while cleaning residential and commercial spaces. An example would be if you came across blood on the floor my staff would be able to take the right precautions necessary to keep them safe of coming in contact with bloodborne pathogens. 

    Knowing the proper way to clean surfaces, how to use disinfectants, and the proper order of how surfaces and objects should be cleaned also can help with time management and effectiveness of our cleans. Cleaning from high to low will keep my employees from recleaning surfaces, or missing dust particles. Knowing the type of disinfectant to use will help keep the risk of contracting viruses and other infections low. Keeping employees and clients from becoming sick.

    Keeping employees and clients safe from infections, viruses, and diseases is so important this day in age. Implementing medical cleaning practices into our residential and commercial cleanings will ensure we are taking the highest steps possible of stopping the spread. IJCSA has trained cleaning services that know the training and procedures used in the medical setting are important and should be followed for any cleaning outside of those setting.
