GO Green - Eagle Janitorial Office Cleaning Services NJ

Office Cleaning Service - go Green


Do you know what kind of products your commercial cleaning company uses on your office? Or do you take the approach that as long as your workspace gets clean, it doesn’t really matter how it happens?

Well, if you haven’t thought about the impact that harsh cleaning products can have on the work environment and employee health, it may be time to reconsider. Here are 4 good reasons why you should hire a janitorial company that understands green cleaning when it comes to Office Cleaning Services.


1.    Avoid releasing harsh toxins into the environment. Many conventional cleaning products do a great job of making your office space look clean… but they also release harsh toxins into the air and waterways, which can have a seriously negative impact on the environment. Ammonia, which is found in many cleaning products used for sanitizing, can cause vegetation to grow too densely around waterways, clogging streams and crowding out other plants and animals, when it gets rinsed down drains or flushed down toilets

2.    Improve the air quality in your office. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like ammonia evaporate into the air when many conventional cleaning products are used—and can sometimes evaporate even if cleaning products are just being stored in your office! These compounds can irritate employees’ eyes, nose, and throat, cause headaches and nausea, damage the kidneys, liver, and central nervous system, and in some cases even cause cancer. Don’t risk keeping your employees in an environment that’s uncomfortable or even hazardous to their health; switch to green cleaning.

3.    Reduce asthma triggers. If you have employees with asthma or other respiratory problems, it’s especially important to keep the quality of air high in your office. If the office isn’t kept clean enough, dust or mold can become an asthma trigger, but if the office is cleaned with conventional cleaning products, they can reduce the air quality and trigger asthma as well. Some cleaning products even stir up dirt, making things even worse! The best solution is to use green cleaning products so that employees with asthma, allergies, or other respiratory problems won’t be forced to take time away from work.

4.    Improve employee productivity. One thing you may not have considered about green cleaning is that it can actually make your employees more productive! How? Studies have shown that better air quality as a result of green cleaning services can improve the performance of tasks like typing and solving math problems by between 4 and 16%. Many employees also report feeling like they have more energy after their office has switched to using green cleaning products. And everyone knows that a happy, energetic employee is the type of employee who will deliver the best results at work.
