How to go green with your clean in a commercial business
Updated: Dec 9, 2019
Keeping it Clean and Green
With sustainability such a big focus for businesses big and small, just how easy is it to make the switch to chemical-free cleaning?
And is it really possible to effectively clean without the use of strong chemicals?
With environmental and health concerns for workers growing, businesses are frequently looking to adopt environmentally-friendly cleaning techniques. In the USA it is estimated that 30-50% of firms now use eco-friendly products or chemical-free solutions.
Green cleaning refers to using safe, natural products throughout the cleaning process. Cleaning without chemicals has huge benefits for the user, the wider public and the planet.
Reasons to go green
Reduce your impact on the environment
Reduce water usage
Save money – cut down on chemical costs and transportation costs
It’s safe for people – long-term exposure to cleaning agents can impact your health
But is it really that easy to go green with your clean in a commercial business? Switching to greener alternatives is actually easier than you think...
Microfibre Pads and Brushes
One easy switch you can make to improve your environmental footprint is to swap cotton mops and pads for microfibre products. Whilst the initial outlay might be more than their cotton competitors, microfibre products are lighter (less injuries for housekeeping staff), more absorbent, longer-lasting, require less chemicals, less water and they are lint free.
Toucan ECA water is a completely safe disinfectant and cleaning agent made entirely of just salt and water that has undergone an electrical charge (Electro Chemical Activation).
Toucan ECA kills 99.999% of bacteria and spores on contact.* The disinfectant is pH neutral, non-toxic and non-hazardous to all macro-organisms while being totally effective against bacteria with no resistance. This means it is completely safe for housekeeping or maintenance teams to use on a daily basis.
It has the ability to clean both hard and soft surfaces (including carpet), thus replacing many of your daily cleaning chemicals.
When used as part of the N-CAP cleaning system ECA water can deliver exceptional cleaning results.
The solution can even be made on-site, reducing the need for cleaning chemical deliveries and helping to reduce plastic bottle waste.
