Why Green Seal?
What is “green cleaning”? In short, it is choosing products and services that reduce the health and environmental impacts compared to similar products and services used for the same purpose. It is cleaning without harming the environment. Science and technology allow us to use products that clean with less aggressive ingredients. Cleaning “green” assists in reducing exposure to potentially harmful chemicals that can endanger the health and safety of building occupants, visitors, and the cleaning staff. Be smart – clean green!
