More and more businesses are going to green buildings, and the changes they are making in their offices are significant. However, cleaning might get overlooked. If your janitorial service is still using strong, toxic chemicals in your green building, it’s undoing some of the benefit of going green.

Many of the industrial-strength cleaners on the market can be toxic, but not all services use these chemicals. Some prefer to use (or at least provide) solutions that are safer and healthier for your green environment.

It’s not only okay, it’s necessary for you to ask for what you need from those who clean your business so that you know what to expect. Clear communication is better for everyone!
