Environmental Cleaning

At Cleantech we recognize the importance of the health and well being of the staff and occupants of the buildings we care for. This, combined with our desire to sustain a safe working environment for our cleaning service personnel, has led us to become an evironmental cleaning company, using green cleaning products whenever possible.  In our vision, technology and nature should be in harmony, complimenting each other.

 

Green Cleaning

Green cleaning refers to using cleaning methods with environmentally-friendly ingredients and chemicals to preserve human health and environmental quality. Green cleaning techniques and products avoid the use of chemically-reactive and toxic cleaning products which contain various toxic chemicals, some of which emit volatile organic compounds causing respiratory and dermatological problems.
At Cleantech we clean for the health of people and the environment through the use of the latest commercial environmentally friendly green products and equipment.

Why should you ask about green cleaning for your property?

Wikipedia defines green cleaning as follows:

“Green cleaning is a term that describes a growing trend in favor of using cleaning methods with environmentally-friendly ingredients and chemicals to preserve human health and environmental quality. Green cleaning techniques and products avoid the use of chemically-reactive and toxic cleaning products which contain various toxic chemicals, some of which emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) causing respiratory and dermatological problems among other adverse effects. Green cleaning can also describe the way residential and industrial cleaning products are manufactured, packaged and distributed.”

Toxicity

Many cleaning products include potentially harmful additives such as chlorines and sulfates. These chemical ingredients break down into harmful substances, which threaten our waterways, fish and other wildlife when flushed into our waste systems. Cleantech’s green, non-toxic product range doesn’t include chemicals like phosphates, sulphates, petroleum solvents or benzene detergent bases.
