When cleaning and disinfecting your facility, it is essential to note that some products contain harsh chemical ingredients that negatively impact both your facility’s occupants and the environment. The act of going green has been rising in popularity due to increased interest in further reducing harm to a facility’s occupants and the environment. 

Green cleaning, also known as environmentally or eco-friendly cleaning, is a great way to keep your facility and its occupants healthy and safe. Integrity Janitorial Cleaning Services is proud to offer green cleaning into our services to ensure the health and safety of our clients and their facilities.

 We encourage you to continue reading our blog post to learn about the benefits of Green Eco Cleaning.

Green Cleaning Helps the Environment

First and foremost, chemical cleaning products contain harsh ingredients that are toxic, hazardous, non-biodegradable, and from non-renewable resources like petroleum. These chemicals end up making their way into our air and water, contributing to pollution.

Green cleaning products, on the other hand, contain naturally derived, non-toxic, biodegradable ingredients that don’t negatively impact the environment. To make green cleaning products, they use a sustainable manufacturing process. By using green cleaning products, you help to reduce the pollution in our air and water.

Green Products are Safer

Second, chemical cleaning products can cause headaches, asthma attacks, skin irritations, chemical burns, and more. 

By switching to green cleaning products, you reduce the exposure to toxic and dangerous chemicals, ensuring the health and wellbeing of your facility’s occupants.

Transparency of Ingredients

Next, many chemical cleaning manufacturers don’t list all of their ingredients due to a lack of stringent governmental regulations. Therefore it can be challenging to decipher whether or not conventional cleaning products are entirely safe for use.  

However, green cleaning manufacturers have adopted a policy to be fully transparent when listing the ingredients in their products, which are usually familiar and common ingredients. 

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Chemical cleaning products release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air contributing heavily to indoor air pollution. VOCs are also associated with some health problems, such as damage to the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system. These products may also be heavily fragranced, which can be irritative to those who are highly sensitive.

By switching to green cleaning products, everyone in your facility can breathe a little easier knowing that these products contain natural fragrances or essential oils that are not irritating.


Last but not least, green cleaning products are safe, biodegradable or compostable, non-toxic, and made with sustainable packaging–all of which benefit the planet. A biodegradable product means it will eventually break down into natural elements, carbon dioxide, and water vapor by organisms like bacteria and fungi. A compostable product is specifically manufactured to break down in a compost system at the end of its useful life.
