Green Cleaning (JS015)

There are a lot of steps when switching from traditional cleaning to a green cleaning program and this program walks you through the process of developing a green cleaning program specific to each building that you clean.

Our program adheres to all international standards, including management system standard ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 31000. All local, state, and federal government agencies now require cleaning & janitorial companies to be green cleaning certified to bid on and clean their facilities.

Along with government agencies all major companies maintaining a HACCP Standards Certification, ISO Certification, LEED Certification, CFGS Certification, etc. require that cleaning companies are green cleaning certified. If you are a owner of a cleaning & janitorial service do not be foolish and wait until you are asked for your green cleaning certification. Be prepared! Present your certifications with your bid!
