When you are searching for high-quality janitorial supplies in Tucson, one consideration may be how environmentally friendly the supplies are. Some of these chemicals even leave behind volatile organic compounds that get into the air and create fumes that make it difficult to breathe. These tips can help you find the best non-toxic source of a good floor cleaning solution. Look for Single Function Solutions If you just need to clean the floors, find a cleaner that only does that function. Solutions that also polish or whiten flooring have added chemicals that you might not necessarily need at the time. Your floors will need to be cleaned more often than they need to be polished, waxed or bleached.

Incorporating green practices in cleaning means making use of cleaning supplies and materials that are environmentally-friendly. It also means making use of cleaning methods that produce as small a carbon footprint as possible. There are a number of ways by which you and other Tucson firms can “go green” with your cleaning programs. Familiarize yourself with green products The easiest and most basic way of starting your green cleaning process is to know what chemicals and cleaning solutions are environmentally safe. It can be quite tempting to just get the first cleaning solution that has a “100% biodegradable” tag, but the best way to go would be to check out the ingredients, or the Materials Safety Data Sheet, of the cleaning solutions that you use and compare them with what the National Institute of Health’s database has to say. If your janitorial supplies come with toxic ingredients, look for better alternatives.
