What to Look for in a Green Cleaning Company

There are a number of green cleaners to choose from. While some focus on cleaning carpets like Green Choice Carpet Cleaning, others focus on whole house cleaning. They could even offer certified green cleansers and services for businesses. Regardless of the service type that you need, it’s important that you know what to look for in a green cleaning company.

How Does the Company Define Clean?

Good green cleaning is more than just making a building look good and using eco-friendly products. It’s also about cleaning for health. Before hiring a green company, ask them about their definition of clean. If they only talk about appearance, this is your first warning sign.

Does the Cleaning Company Have All of the Tools to Get the Job Done?

Cleaning isn’t just about using green cleaners. In fact, cleaning solutions only make up a small percentage of the tools needed to properly clean a building. Ask the cleaning provider which tools that they use to clean your home or office. Do they have a dual-chamber cleaning bucket? What about microfiber mops and cleaning cloths?

Does the Staff Clean Multiple Areas With the Same Mop?

Disease is spread throughout your home or office by cross-contamination. For example, this may happen when a cleaning company uses a rag or mop to clean surfaces after using it to clean the bathroom. It’s important to find out if the company has enough mops, cleaning cloths and other tools to clean multiple rooms without reusing the same tools.

Is the Cleaning Company Insured?

Studies show that janitors and other cleaning workers are the fifth most injured workforce in the United States as of 2016. This is why it’s important to protect yourself from lawsuits or being held legally responsible for any accidents that happen on your property. Make sure that the cleaning company you hire has insurance. Also make sure that it complies with all regulations set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. OSHA requires all cleaning companies to have a Hazard Communication Plan, so keep this in mind when hiring a company.

Giving your home or office a good green cleaning is the best way to keep people healthy. It can also keep your home or office looking great. Using the information above, you can ensure that the green cleaning company you hire has your best interests at heart.

    It’s true that not all cleaning companies are the same. In the past I’ve used Chem-Dry of Greensboro. They say that they are a ‘green’ company, but I feel like everyone says that. These things you suggested are ways you can really know.
