Green cleaning is a becoming more and more of a priority in schools and businesses everywhere. The benefits of this cleaning cannot be ignored; it is safer for custodians, building occupants, and the environment. With a green cleaning program, customers can save money and the environment.
There are a few things that need to be done when implementing a green cleaning routine. Custodial staff needs to be trained and educated. A common misconception of going green is that custodians often think they will have to work harder, which is untrue.
The return investment of green cleaning is something else that needs to be calculated, as well as product availability. Budget constraints are another factor that needs to be considered as well. When everyone understands the value of a green cleaning program, both administrator and custodian can see real results. Schools especially will see the benefits. If attendance goes up after going green, there will be documented proof that the program improves health and reduces absenteeism. It is good to note that, done right, green cleaning can be a net savings for a company.
Schools who have already implemented a green cleaning program are reporting decreased absenteeism, fewer staff health problems, and happier healthier teachers, all as a result of this program.
