What Is Green Cleaning?
The Federal Government defines green cleaning as "environmentally preferable" products and services that "have a lesser or reduced effect on human health and the environment when compared with competing products or services that serve the same purpose." In other words you can receive the same quality of cleaning while reducing your impact on the environment and creating a safer workplace. Green cleaning is comprised of cleaning products and methods developed to improve occupant health and performance while minimizing impact on the environment. Some products claim to be green, but only those officially certified as green are used by our staff.
Why Use Green Cleaning?
Many traditional cleaning products contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs). When cleaning, these VOC's are released into the air through evaporation and can affect indoor air quality. This not only affects staff but those visiting your facility as well. Green cleaning improves the indoor air quality of a workplace and can lead to increased productivity. Healthier employees are happier employees and overall morale and absenteeism can improve. When using green products and procedures you will see a reduction of eye, skin, and respiratory irritations. A reduction in headaches and nausea has even been recorded in some cases.
Recent trends and increasing awareness has made the environment an important subject nationwide. By implementing a green cleaning program you can do your part in reducing pollution and your impact on the planet which, in turn, makes the world a cleaner place.
How Do You Clean Green?
The service we provide covers all aspects necessary in a green cleaning program. This includes but is not limited to: green certified solutions, HEPA filtration on all vacuums, microfiber towels/mops, and proper cleaning techniques.
The first and most recognized part of a green cleaning service is the use of proper cleaning chemicals. All cleaning products used are certified green. This means that they have gone through stringent tests and passed all the requirements necessary for certification. Some of these standards include: no carcinogens, no human or aquatic toxins, no reproductive toxins, non-corrosive to eyes or skin, non flammable, effective for intended use, and formulated and packaged for reduced environmental impact. These products help reduce health risks and environmental impact.
Air quality in the workplace is an issue everyone can relate to, especially those with respiratory problems. Our program includes the use of HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filters in all of our vacuums. Conventional vacuums use filters that release fine particles back into the room. HEPA filters remove 99.9% of particulates .3 micrometers in size, which are considered to be the most penetrating particle size. This is beneficial for asthma and allergy sufferers, because the HEPA filter traps the fine particles (such as pollen and dust mite feces) which trigger allergy and asthma symptoms.
Another part of our green cleaning program involves the use of microfiber products. Microfiber consists of very fine threads of polyester and polyamide (nylon) that combine to form a single thread. Microfiber cleans without streaking, smearing, scratching or leaving lint and is safe to use on all delicate surfaces. This unique cleaning tool is more effective at removing dust, dirt, germs, grease and lime safely. Microfiber cloths last much longer than traditional towels/mops and therefore have less of an impact on the environment.

Stā-Clean did a thorough and professional job of cleaning our store and sealing our new vinyl flooring for
a very reasonable price. We liked the Stā-Clean staff who were friendly and efficient.
They were extremely conscientious about using non-toxic products and were careful to inform us of our options. We are so glad we found them and look forward to working with them in the future.
We will get back to you soon for another cleaning.
I have been pleasantly surprised at the level of communication with Brant, the owner of the company, who wants to
make sure that I receive the best possible service.The previous company we used seemed to send different people
all of the time, and the quality of their work suffered as result.Since we switched to Stā-Clean, we have a
steady crew who works our facility and Brant comes to check in weekly and make sure we are completely happy with
the services being provided.
When we decided to interview for a new janitorial service, I decided going with the rock bottom bid was not likely to yield any better results than it did previously.Stā-Clean's price was very competitive, and we now know, they are worth every penny ... and more!Thank you Brant for making it effortless for us to keep our facilities looking just the way we like them, all of the time.
