Happy Earth Day, to Baltimore and beyond! Since its inception in 1970, Earth Day has given Americans a chance to pause from our hectic lives and think about ways we can protect our planet from some of the less ideal side effects of human advancement. We wanted to take the time this week to think about ways we can “clean green” with some eco-friendly cleaning practices for commercial cleaning and water damage restoration. Here’s what ServiceMaster does to think green.
ServiceMaster of Baltimore — A Greener Cleaner
Eco-friendly cleaning, or “green cleaning,” has seen a sharp uptick in popularity in recent years, as environmental concerns have come to the forefront of many Americans’ minds. As such, ServiceMaster has kept up with those environmental demands with some green cleaning strategies. Here are some benefits of eco-friendly cleaning, both for you and Mother Nature.
- Most importantly, there are the benefits given to the environment. Environmentally friendly cleaning products mean fewer toxic chemicals being released into the environment both in production and in usage. It also means choosing low-impact methods and products to ensure the safest environmental practices possible.
- A great benefit to you (and your employees, if we’re talking about commercial cleaning) is simply just added health. Environmentally friendly cleaning products and methods mean improved indoor air quality. Approximately 30% of U.S. workers have suffered from health problems caused by “sick building syndrome,” meaning that many companies are vastly underestimating the value of green cleaning.
- There are also many government incentives for any environmentally friendly business practices, cleaning and water damage restoration included. That means lower operating costs, which makes for happy business owners.
Environmentally Friendly Water Damage Restoration
As far as water damage cleanup goes, there’s one big way you can contribute to these green efforts. If there are any items that need to be disposed of after water damage, do your best to sort through and find anything and everything that may be recyclable. The less we can contribute to our landfills and the more we can recycle, the happier our planet will be.
