    Cleaning personnel and staff must have an in-depth knowledge of bloodborne pathogens in order to work in any healthcare environment or institution where there is a chance they could come into contact with blood or other bodily fluids. Microorganisms that can live in blood and other bodily fluids and cause serious medical conditions including the hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In order to stop the spread of illnesses, maintain a safe and healthy environment, and protect themselves and others, cleaning employees and staff who are educated about bloodborne pathogens are essential.

    First and foremost, cleaning personnel and staff are better prepared to handle potentially infected materials properly if they are knowledgeable about bloodborne diseases. To avoid direct contact with blood or bodily fluids, they are instructed on how to properly utilize personal protective equipment (PPE), such as gloves, masks, and goggles. They recognize the need to adhere to prescribed procedures for handling and getting rid of contaminated objects, such as utilizing authorized sharps containers and thoroughly sanitizing surfaces. They reduce the chance of cross-contamination and guarantee everyone's safety in the facility by following these rules.

    Second, knowledgeable cleaners and staff members can actively support infection control procedures. They are taught to spot possible risks and put effective risk-reduction measures in place. Identifying places that need specialist cleaning techniques, like high-touch surfaces in patient rooms or regions with obvious blood spills, is part of this process. Their knowledge of bloodborne infections helps them efficiently choose and use the right cleaning solutions and disinfectants. They contribute to the prevention of illness spreading and the general wellbeing of patients, healthcare professionals, and visitors by keeping the area clean and hygienic. Lastly, creating a culture of safety and encouraging accountability is achieved through training cleaning staff and employees about bloodborne infections. Employees who are aware of the dangers posed by bloodborne diseases are more likely to follow safety procedures and report potential hazards. They have a higher propensity to take infection control seriously and engage in active learning opportunities. A collaborative environment where everyone works together to prevent infections and maintain a safe and healthy facility is created by this level of awareness and involvement.

    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.

    Having a green cleaning certification aids one's business and as an individual in many ways. Having the knowledge of green cleaning and how to implement it to a client can be very lucrative if done properly. Working with the client and explaining the health benefits will surely convince them of expanding their current cleaning schedule to green cleaning. 

    Most cleaners and clients may not want a fully green cleaning schedule due to cost and effectiveness. Usually certain aspects of the job can always be switched to green cleaning. This switch is extremely helpful in limiting the client and cleaner to harmful chemicals. The less the client, the cleaner and myself are around harmful chemicals the better. 

    Many products such as bleach seem common and not overly dangerous, but many common household cleaners are extremely toxic. Even when used properly there is always some form of contact. Whether is be through touch or inhalation, it will usually be harmful in some way. These effects may not be felt for many years so the sooner more green cleaning is implemented the better for all parties involved.

    Even little things like switching from glass cleaner to a vinegar and water mixture are very beneficial. The more small changes like this that are made will eventually yield massive returns in everyone's health. If all cleaning companies focused on green cleaning the population's health as a whole would be drastically improved.

    Being green certified will help my company in a few ways. The main reason would be for my and my helps safety. We are handling cleaners all day, everyday. Inhaling all the chemicals is definitely not safe and in the long run, can cause serious lung issues. Going green will ensure this is to less likely happen as we won't be inhaling chemicals that could literally, eat paint off a car. 

    Not only would be it safer for myself and my help, it would be more safe for the clients who's homes we are cleaning and their families. They won't be touching surfaces of which are cleaned with harsh chemicals and seeping into their skin. Or their pets are not laying on floors of which was cleaned with a harsh cleaner. Going green will provide the assurance of, " my home is clean and safe", for them. 

    Going green will also give me the peace of mind that I am not contributing to the pollution on our planet. That my products are efficient and eco friendly. That what I'm using, isnt soaking into the soil and hurting the plants or washing into the water of which water animals live or we drink from/swim in. 

     I and a lot of other cleaning companies at International Janitorial Cleaning Services Association - Green Cleaning Services ( feel the same way. We could not be more proud to announce that we are green certified and are helping the world, be a little less harsh.

    It is extremely important for cleaning employees to be aware of the risk that comes from bloodborne pathogens. Cleaning staff could come into contact with many forms of bodily fluids that have the possibility of spreading disease. There is a possibility to infect themselves and many others by not properly handling situations where bloodborne pathogens could be a risk. Cleaning staff should always use universal precautions.

    Even if a particular cleaning staff member would not usually be expected to come into contact with a bloodborne pathogen, they should have the proper training to be able to handle the situation and reduce the chances of anyone contracting a bloodborne pathogen whenever possible.

    Bloodborne pathogens training can help employees to be aware of the risk and to use universal precautions by wearing proper PPE and following all established safety protocols. Without training employees may not be aware of the risks and that could lead to many people being at risk to be infected by a bloodborne pathogen that could have otherwise been avoided.
