Always Ask Your Commercial Cleaning Company about the Detergents They Use.
Most cleaning contractors in Los Angeles CA use industrial chemicals to clean very dirty commercial facilities and office buildings. Although these products speed up the cleaning process, they may create an unhealthy environment for you and your employees. If you want to make sure that you have hired a commercial cleaning company that can perform a purely organic cleaning, you need to book the services of De Leon Building Maintenance!
Today, we will discuss the most common types of cleaning detergents our employees work with. Here is our sample list:
- Air freshener
- Furniture polish (especially for offices with high-traffic where many customers enter on a daily basis)
- Floor cleaners
- Metal cleaners
- Tile and grout cleaners
- Glass cleaner
- Mothballs (for the wardrobe room in your office)
- Bug repellents and killers
- All-purpose cleaners
The National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health have researched various products to find out how detergents including toxins have influenced the cleaners in order to determine which products should a commercial cleaning company use and which to avoid. If you read some of these researches, you will be surprised to find out that almost 50% of the cleaning substances available on the market do not consist of purely organic ingredients and can therefore be dangerous for the human health.
Various independent organizations and industry associations review and certify cleaning products and pesticides according to a certain criteria related to reduced health and environmental impact as compared to conventional products used for the same purpose. Looking for these certification symbols is a good start when you want to steer clear of toxic chemicals. Keep in mind that certifications differ either in purpose, process, product or all three.
