Green Cleaning Program

Our Green Maintenance Service is a process that reduces the overall impacts of cleaning on health and the environment. While product selections are important, procedures for Green maintenance services are equally important. In general, Green maintenance procedures are similar to traditional procedures. The differences are more a matter of focus than one of technique. Our focus is on pollution prevention strategies and some specific opportunities to modify traditional procedures to reduce impacts on health and the environment. With the use of any chemical cleaning product or piece of custodial equipment, it is important that appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) be used and directions followed. The use of Defender Services, Inc. Green Cleaning Program can contribute to your facility’s LEED Certification Program.
