Green cleaning is increasingly being recognized and with the help of LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification it makes buildings environmentally compatible to implement green cleaning solutions and other products into their everyday lifestyle.
One crucial factor that makes green cleaning so important is the potential harm that can be caused by traditional cleaning chemicals. Building management teams should understand the science behind cleaning and how the chemicals can affect human health. It is important to properly select and use green cleaning products in order to help protect the health and safety of building occupants and the planet.
Science has made it clear that cleaning products can have an impact on building occupants. Traditional products are known to contribute to health problems such as eye, skin and respiratory irritation as well as asthma and other allergic reactions. Replacing these products with those that reduce the potential harm is likely less costly than increasing the supply of fresh air or general ventilation rates.
Also important is the impact these chemicals have on the cleaning personnel who have long-term exposures. The regular exposure can sometimes lead to serious chronic illnesses such as cancer, and neurological or reproductive disorders.
The better building managers understand how chemicals can cause harm, the better they will be able to choose cleaning strategies and products that will provide a healthy high performing building not just for average healthy occupants, but also for those with vulnerabilities, such as children, pregnant women, occupants with compromised immune systems, the elderly and those with other pre-existing health conditions or sensitivities.
