Green Means Go: How Integrating Commercial Green Cleaning Enhances Indoor Air Quality

As someone who values their employees, you are committed to providing them with the best possible working environment. That means going above and beyond offering complimentary coffee, beer on tap, casual Fridays or a pool table in the common area.  Today’s workforce is savvier when it comes to a healthy work environment; gimmicky perks no longer cut it — in more ways than one.

Your employees are likely more concerned about work-life balance and their overall physical and mental health, which you can empower just by choosing green commercial cleaning over traditional methods. 

ICYMI, the EPA has determined that indoor air in homes and offices can be anywhere from two to five times more polluted — occasionally more than 100 times! — than the air outside, regardless of your location. 

No matter the level, indoor air pollution can lead to a variety of health issues, including cancer, cognitive decline, heart disease, and respiratory ailments. Naturally, an employee by any of these will not be able to bring their A-game to the table. 

A major culprit when it comes to indoor air pollutants is common cleaning products, which can release volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which, in addition to the health concerns listed above, have also been linked to occupational asthma. 

Products that contain these VOCs can include everything from air fresheners, chlorine bleach, rug and upholstery cleaners, as well as furniture and floor polish, to name a few.
