Why Green Cleaning?


Best Care Client Jim Miller,
Senior Account Manager of Janpak, Talks About LEED

It's not about hugging the tree anymore. It's about your health.

Best Care Cleaning Services "green cleaning program" offers a flexible 3-step approach for all types of customers. By choosing to apply either one or all of these steps, your facility can become a little bit "greener" than yesterday, or we can bring your building into full compliance with LEED Certification Standards.

  1. Request the use of green chemicals. We have all heard it before... "I want my office to smell good". The reality is that anyone can spray deodorizers but proper chemical selection should concentrate on your health and not on leaving harmful components behind. Currently, we outfit all 5-day cleaning facilities with chemical management systems for accurate product dilution, therefore using less chemicals and less water.

  2. Request the use of adequate equipment. The janitorial industry has seen a true revolution in terms of the tools of the trade. By using equipment outfitted with the right filters, we assist in ensuring better air quality. Best Care uses ProTeam back-packs for vacuuming and microfiber rags and mopheads for daily cleaning tasks.

  3. Request the implementation of a comprehensive Green Cleaning Program. We can help you:

    Give the Best Care
    • Analyze your current usage policies to minimize conflict with cleaning schedule. Sometimes inadequate cleaning is the result of conflicting schedules inside the facility that could be resolved with proper communication and a joint scheduling program.

    • Choose the right entryways mats. This is your first-line of defense against dirt and debris being brought into your building.

    • Choose the right paper and liners. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed guidelines with recommended levels of recovered and recycled content. Assist in the selection of suitable dispensers throughout the customer's facilities.

    • Create a communication program whereby the customer becomes an important part of the process. This typically involves prompt notification of spills, reducing clutter at workstations and minimizing eating on desks.

      Green and Clean
    • Focus on preventive measures. This means focusing on touch points such as door handles, bright fixtures, light switches, telephones, and other areas people come in contact with.

    • Ensure LEED Certification. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings. A LEED building is a healthier building. Cleaning is an important part of meeting these standards and Best Care can assist in this process.
