Operations staffs at education facilities of all sizes are tasked with selecting a hard floor cleaning program that is cost-effective, efficient and highly productive. With an increased focus on the sustainability of an environment, facility managers also must select a program that meets sustainability goals while maintaining a healthful, safe environment for students and staff. To meet these goals, many facility managers choose to carry out green cleaning processes, which includes transitioning to environmentally preferable equipment and green certified chemicals. Green cleaning initiatives are designed to help minimize environmental and human-health impacts, while maintaining or even improving the effectiveness of cleaning programs. Many facility managers are unsure of where to begin when considering a sustainable flooring for schools cleaning program. With an abundance of chemical, equipment and process solutions, it can be difficult to select and carry out a cleaning program that will satisfy green cleaning initiatives, while remaining cost-effective and efficient. In this article, the author discusses how schools can implement a cost-effective, sustainable floor cleaning program to meet green initiatives.
