Green Cleaning in Elmwood, LA

louisiana-treesWe care about our naturally beautiful environment here in Elmwood, Louisiana. “Green” or environmentally friendly cleaning alternatives have proven to be just as effective as traditional disinfectants and sanitizers at eliminating harmful germs and bacteria that can cause illness. These products have a much lower impact on the environment as well as on our long-term health, as certain chemicals in cleaning agents can have negative health effects with extended exposure. Chemical-free options are safer to use for the person cleaning and produce fewer residues or emissions, like volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that harm the environment over time.

Only use a disinfectant or sanitizer if and when necessary

Disinfectants are often overused or used incorrectly. Because these products are specifically designed to kill pathogens, they can potentially be dangerous to users, passersby, and the environment.  Remember it is also considered best practice to first clean the surface to remove soils and then apply a disinfectant to kill germs, bacteria, or pathogens.

janitorial-cleaningOur Green For cleaning products are plant-based, safe for the environment, and safe for people with chemical or allergy sensitivities. They don’t contain perfumes or dyes, surfactants or wetting agents, VOCs (volatile organic compounds), or any ingredients considered acidic, alkaline, or corrosive. Our products are certified “green” by leading independent agencies and reduce the amount of toxins and contaminants that get absorbed by the environment.

Not only are the products we use better for the environment, but our methodology is green too! We use high-filtration vacuums that capture 99.9% of particles with special attachments that help capture additional residue before becoming airborne.  Microfiber technology ensures the capture and removal of particulates on surfaces instead of just moving it around.
