Keeping It Clean – And Green!
When we think
of the benefits of technology in the workplace, it is easy to keep our minds on
the most obvious changes that have come over the years. Many workplaces have
incorporated the most cutting-edge technologies to sustain the ease of
productivity, whether it is easily accessed websites, company e-mail, or apps
that allow employees to clock in and out and organize their time and work
isn’t always obviously physical to be beneficial. When one thinks of cleaning
technology, it’s easy to think about autonomous functions that don’t require a
human being to participate in. Robotic vacuums, for example, have become common
in households; even if most people haven’t embraced cleaning technology to that
extreme, it isn’t uncommon to find electric air fresheners aiding in keeping
bathroom or office air clean, or electric hand dryers that encourage
sustainability and less waste. However, technology isn’t just about the most
obvious and physical uses of electronics. It can be about looking into the
future and using our knowledge and expertise to make changes that will better the
Earth’s environment and the future of humanity.
When it comes
to commercial businesses, “going green” has become an expectation. The harmful
factors of waste and energy used by the commercial industry are having a huge
impact on our planet. Not every single business is solely responsible for
damage to our environment, but when every business is put together, all the
small choices made can lead to very impactful, very big outcomes. That’s why
many states, including Texas, have implicated incentives that encourage
businesses to embrace green energy that can be implemented from the inception
of an entire building to its demolition. One of these initiatives, Leadership in Energy and Environmental
Design, or LEED, is a certification program that guides the development of
commercial buildings in all aspects from architecture to engineering to daily
operation and beyond.
First developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED has spearheaded
changes in green building and development for over 25 years. LEED requires very
specific expectations for building certification but inspires to create
long-lasting and sustainable buildings that will lessen the negative impacts on
our environment while giving companies the technology and support they need to
run efficiently. One of the requirements for LEED certification is to employ cleaning
services that uphold certification requirements for green cleaning. Not all
janitorial companies have this certification, but DBM Inc. Professional
Janitorial Services does.
As a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, certified janitorial
services aim to keep buildings clean and sanitized while maintaining green
cleaning standards. By employing state of the art cleaning technology, a janitorial
company can offer green cleaning alternatives that maintain cleanliness
expectations while lessening the creation of waste and exposure to harmful
chemicals. DBM was ahead of the curve as one of the first cleaning companies in
Texas to embrace the future of green cleaning.
Technology isn’t just about the physical development of technological advances – it’s also about looking towards a positive and healthy future for humanity. That’s why DBM is LEED-certified and eager to offer green cleaning services to your company.
