Make Your Winona, MN, Business More Environmentally Friendly and Sustainable With Green Cleaning

January 29th, 2016 · No Comments

Nowadays, just about everyone is interested in “going green” to help protect the environment. If you’re a business owner or manager in Winona, MN, “going green” is as easy as utilizing the outstanding green cleaning services offered by ServiceMaster Building Maintenance. Whether you opt for green cleaning in combination with our commercial cleaning, janitorial cleaning, or dayporter services, you will be taking a big step towards helping the environment, and quite possibly, your bottom line.

The ServiceMaster green cleaning system uses an independently certified line of products that are free of detergent and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). These low-odor cleaning solutions are just as effective, if not more so, than traditional cleaning products. Next, we use our proprietary Capture & Removal Cleaning system, which utilizes high-filtration vacuums, microfiber towels, and green cleaning materials to maximize the removal of dust and other airborne particles from your facility.

Here are additional ways that your business can save money, improve the environment, and “go green” in 2016:

  1. Review your company’s purchasing policies and make sure that your purchased goods are manufactured in a sustainable fashion, do not contain toxic materials or ozone-depleting substances, can be recycled, and/or are produced from recycled materials. Whenever possible, do not use excessive packaging.


  1. Encourage your employees to walk, bike, carpool, and/or use public transportation to get to work. The U. S. Census Bureau recently found that 86% of U. S. workers still commute to work in a vehicle and that more than 75% drive alone. If possible, implement some sort of rewards program for employees who use any of the above methods to travel to work.


  1. Reduce waste and save money by recycling. So many of the items used in an office, clinic, or other business setting can be recycled. These include aluminum cans, electronics, cardboard, paper, metal, plastic, and more!


  1. Reduce your waste and water usage by encouraging employees to drink their coffee, tea, or water out of reusable mugs or bottles. Fix dripping taps, water fountains, and plumbing leaks and install low-flow toilets.


For the very best in green cleaning, call us today at 866-992-1122 if your business is located in the Wisconsin cities of Appleton, Green Bay, La Crosse, Madison, or Milwaukee, or in the Iowa cities of Cedar Rapids and Iowa City. In Minnesota, contact us at 866-992-1122 if your clinic, office, or other type of business is located in Winona or the surrounding area. Our green cleaning services will lighten your company’s environmental footprint while improving the atmosphere your employees are working in.
