Earth Day, a day to demonstrate support for environmental protection, was created in 1970 after a group of young activists called attention to how man’s activities were having a striking negative impact on our planet. This year, on April 22nd, marks the 52nd anniversary of Earth Day and it is the perfect opportunity for the commercial cleaning industry to showcase what steps they are taking to preserve precious Mother Earth.
At iNX, it’s Earth Day all year long and there’s no secret as to why – we use environmentally friendly cleaning techniques and products!
Cleaning Techniques that Reduce Water Usage
Microfiber Cleaning Materials
Instead of using cotton cleaning cloths or cotton mop heads, our trained iNX Commercial Cleaning Solutions crews use microfiber cleaning materials. Using microfiber requires significantly less water as compared to other types of textiles, which is ideal for going green with commercial cleaning services.
Not only does microfiber use less water than other materials, but it also produces more efficient and cleaner results. Microfiber traps dirt, dust, and other bacteria in ways that cotton simply cannot.
Efficient Floor Cleaning Equipment
Cleaning hard surface floors the traditional way, with a mop and bucket, tends to take the most time to clean and typically uses lots of water. Luckily, we recognize that there are more efficient and sustainable methods of cleaning floors – such as using industrial scrubbing machines. Using walk-behind scrubbers not only reduces the amount of water necessary for operation but can also eliminate the need for chemicals.
Safer Cleaning Products and Chemicals
Creating an eco-friendly commercial cleaning plan starts with the chemicals that are being used within the workspace. To help assist our clients with the goal of becoming more sustainable, we offer cleaning products that are biodegradable, bio-based, and free of any dyes or fragrances. We understand the importance of eliminating unnecessary chemicals and keeping an eye on pH levels and ingredients in the products we use.
Using these techniques and products, thus reducing their impact on the environment,
demonstrates that iNX Commercial Cleaning Solutions is committed to providing the very highest levels of service without compromising the safety and well-being of our clients and the planet.
