The cost benefits to the buildings we clean are not so easy to calculate. We do know that the long range benefits of green cleaning services extend the life of carpet, flooring, furnishings, computers, and HVAC systems.
We also know millions of man-hours are lost each year due to asthma exacerbated by poor indoor air quality. We know by providing green janitorial commercial office cleaning services Dallas Building Maintenance can help reduce environmental hazards that negatively affect your employees and visitors.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that people spend up to 90% of their time indoors. Products and materials indoors release volatile chemicals and particles into the air that may negatively affect a person's health or result in unacceptable odors.
Furthermore, undesirable IAQ can increase the risk of sickness and lead to ailments such as allergies, asthma, reproductive and developmental problems, and cancer. The economic impact is equally alarming, since poor IAQ can affect employee health and productivity. A 2005 report by one US State’s Air Resource's Board estimates the cost of poor IAQ in that particular state alone to be $45 billion per year. A green janitorial commercial office cleaning services program can help reduce these kinds of costs.
While green cleaning products and services are important, the tools and procedures used with them are equally as critical. In fact, all three components; products, tools, and procedures, and how they are used together, is most notable.
Even the best commercial office cleaning services, products, and tools won't work unless the janitorial workers are well-trained and embrace their use.
