Tip Number Four: Powerful “Green Agents”
For many years, janitors have used harsh, cleaning chemicals containing carcinogens that cause cancer, teratogens that are known to cause birth defects, and mutagens that have been found to alter DNA. Towards the end of the last century, the commercial cleaning industry began to search for alternative cleaning products and methods that were less harmful to humans, or the earth for that matter. These “Earth Friendly” products or “Green Agents” improve air quality, reduce waste and reduce phosphates and phosphonates that can be harmful to humans.
The EPA rates indoor air quality as a top five health risk and estimates that two-thirds of our buildings are rated “SICK” with over 100 million dollars of lost work days due to poor indoor air quality. With 80% of our time being spent indoors, there are many good reasons why you should keep your facility clean with powerful “Green Agents”.
You may be concerned with the higher costs associated with “Green Agents” but when you look at the cost-per-use as opposed to the cost-per-gallon, you may be pleasantly surprised. Proper dilution coupled with the use of a metered dispensing system will help your “Green Agents” go a long way in keeping your office clean and healthy.
