Micro Cleaning - Green Cleaning Myths

More and more attention is being paid to green cleaning. However there have been several myths and misconceptions spread about the products and procedures of green cleaning.

Myth #1:
Green cleaning products are expensive.
Truth: When green cleaning chemicals were first manufactured they were priced higher than traditional cleaning chemicals. Today the costs of green cleaning products are no more expensive than the cost of traditional cleaning products. Increased research and production of green cleaning products have decreased the cost of green cleaning products and supplies. So green cleaning products are no longer any more expensive than traditional cleaning products.

Myth #2:
Green cleaning products and procedures are not as effective as traditional cleaning products and procedures.
Truth: The improvement in green cleaning products and supplies has made them just as effective as traditional cleaning methods. Some products, such as microfiber cloths, actually clean better than traditional dust cloths that spread more dust than they pick up.

Myth #3:
All I need to do is use green products and I can market my business as a green cleaning company.
Truth: Green cleaning is much more than using green products. It is a whole system that starts with proper training of employees, implementing methods to keep soil out of buildings such as adequate matting and reducing the need for chemicals (for example, daily vacuuming so carpet cleaning is not needed as often).

Myth #4:
Companies who offer green cleaning services need to be certified.
Truth: Although there are certifications available (Green Seal® and LEED), you are not required to become certified to implement a green cleaning program.

Myth #5:
Only environmentalists are concerned with green cleaning. Truth: More and more businesses are concerned with the chemicals that are used in their buildings and are looking for better alternatives. Green cleaning is not only cost effective, but is better for a building's indoor air quality –making it a better environment for employees and customers.

Myth #6:
To implement a green cleaning program you have to dump all of your current cleaning chemicals and buy new green chemicals. Truth: You can start slowly transitioning from your current system to green cleaning procedures. It is best to start with getting rid of your harshest chemicals first and gradually switch the rest of your products, equipment and Procedures. It works best to switch one product at a time, so you can evaluate the results and make sure that the product fulfills your particular needs.

How Do You Start a Green Cleaning Program? Don't just jump into green cleaning. Start by learning about the problems associated with poor indoor air quality and what your cleaning company's part is in keeping a building healthy.
As mentioned earlier, green cleaning is much more than just using green chemicals. You also need to learn about the chemicals, equipment and procedures that you need to clean effectively and efficiently. Above all, proper training is the key to green cleaning.

How Improper Cleaning Affects Indoor Air Quality?
Poor indoor air quality comes from a variety of sources and some flaws will be out of the control of your cleaning company (for example, poor building design and poor ventilation). However, the following are items that the cleaning staff does have control over and can adjust to improve indoor air quality:

  • Proper storage of chemicals
  • Proper use of chemicals.
  • Proper dilution of chemicals.
  • Properly using cleaning equipment and supplies to reduce cross contamination.
  • Making sure that kitchens and bathrooms are properly cleaned. Standing water (even in water drains) and improper cleaning allows microbes and bacteria to grow.
  • Making sure food is not left out, which can attract pests.
  • Using appropriate procedures when dusting, vacuuming and sweeping so you're not moving the dust around the room or making it airborne.
  • Proper care of cleaning equipment, vacuums, mops, microfibers, etc.
  • Using high efficiency vacuums with HEPA filtration.
  • Performing cleaning tasks frequently and keeping a building in prime condition so that fewer chemicals are necessary. For example, when vacuuming is done daily, carpet cleaning may not need to be done as often, which reduces the number of chemicals being used on the carpet.
  • Proper training of cleaning personnel.
