Best Practices for Your Green Cleaning Program

  • Specify cleaning products and supplies that are certified by Green Seal or ECOLOGO. Also specify training, reporting, packaging reduction and any other agency environmental priorities.
  • Consider adopting applicable procedures and practices in Green Seal’s commercial cleaning standard (GS-42).
  • Isolate janitorial supplies to dedicated closets to reduce occupants’ exposure.
  • Require on-site training for staff in proper use of products from manufacturers or distributors.
  • Consider reducing the total number of stocked cleaning products by using concentrated multi- purpose cleaners which can be diluted to various strengths using a dilution control system.
