Going Green: The Benefits of Using Eco-Friendly Products

We all want to do what we can to protect the planet, and using green cleaning products is one of the first steps you can take towards making the world a better place. At Clean-Slate Janitorial Services, the Greater Toronto Area’s leading commercial cleaning service, we offer a range of eco-friendly office cleaning products to our clients.

By using green cleaning products, not only are you protecting the environment, but you’re also ensuring that your office is a healthier place to work for your employees. Many contaminants can enter the body through inhalation, ingestion, or through the skin; you and your employees could be exposed to potentially harmful chemicals in the cleaning products you use simply by breathing!

If any of your employees suffer from respiratory illness, such as asthma, the harsh chemicals found in many cleaning products can exacerbate these conditions, leading to lost time due to sick days. Many eco-friendly office products use natural ingredients that will let your employees breathe easier and stay healthy. A healthier working environment also greatly improves the morale and productivity of your staff.

With winter fast approaching, your workplace is doubtlessly going to turn into a sealed environment for the next few months. Therefore, it is important to ensure that everyone is comfortable. Using eco-friendly cleaning products is one of the first steps you can take to ensure this.

Plus, with year-end meetings coming up, not only do you want your office to be clean, but you also need it to be a healthy environment for any clients visiting for a meeting so they don’t suffer from any health conditions that could be aggravated by harsh chemicals.

It has also been shown that long-term exposure to harsh chemical products can sometimes lead to serious medical conditions, such as cancer, as well as neurological and reproductive disorders.

Most importantly, using eco-friendly products will not harm the environment. We at Clean-Slate would like to point out that green cleaning products degrade quickly without harming the ecosystem, are less likely to build up in the body, and come in concentrated forms to reduce greenhouse gases from shipping.

As you can see, there are many benefits of using eco-friendly cleaning products. When you call on Clean-Slate to clean your workplace, we only use the best premium green cleaning products on the market to ensure that our clients have a clean, healthy office.

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada. Started my cleaning career in 1995. After spending years as a general cleaner I began to learn other cleaning skills such as window cleaning, carpet cleaning and floor (stripping and waxing) cleaning. In 2003 managed and supervised for a large janitorial company. With all the years of experience behind me I decided to start my own janitorial company in 2008 and that was when Clean-Slate Janitorial was created. Add me to your G+ Profile
