Green Cleaning

Green Cleaning

Cleaning methods have changed a lot over the years. In the past, the focus was mainly on finding the cheapest and/or most powerful chemicals and solutions to sanitize and beautify a surface. However, in recent years, the paradigm has shifted. Individuals, organizations, and government agencies have found that some cleaning methods may harm the environment, and potentially the people nearby. 

To protect the environment and the people, a movement to “go green” has gained popularity across industries, including the realm of janitorial services. At The Budd Group, we’re proud to offer our customers green cleaning services.

What is Green Cleaning?

Green cleaning refers to sustainable cleaning solutions. In other words, companies who provide green cleaning programs will use products that are non-toxic, reusable, and/or biodegradable. Organizations like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) help determine the training methods, practices, and products commensurate with sustainable cleaning.

How The Budd Group Implements its Green Cleaning Program

The Budd Group understands our customers’ commitment to sustainability and has enjoyed working with numerous facilities in implementing the program in buildings we currently service. The core practices of our current sustainability program include the following:

  • Utilization of cleaning chemicals and consumables (paper and trash liners) which meet or exceed Green Sealed, Eco logo, EPA, or Green Label standards.
  • Utilization of microfiber technology for dusting and floor care.  This includes microfiber cloths, hand held microfiber dusting tools, microfiber dust mops, and microfiber wet mops. 
  • Utilization of cleaning equipment that meet or exceed the standards for green cleaning of LEED certified buildings.
  • Facilitation of green cleaning training based upon “Healthy High Performance Cleaning” – a cleaning program designed to meet or exceed all standards for LEED certification.
  • Energy conservation: utilizing day cleaning when possible and utilizing team cleaning so that minimum light and air conditioning is needed for night time cleaning.

Every business and facility has unique requirements, which The Budd Group is happy to accommodate. The one constant, however, is our provision of green cleaning solutions. We aim to maintain the safety and beauty of our customers’ facilities while also helping them achieve more sustainable operations.
