Here at Strathcona Cleaners, we take the concept of green cleaning very seriously. Our green cleaning initiatives can be seen as the next step towards reducing pollutants from the workplace and increasing the sustainability of our environment. Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions regarding our environmentally friendly practices:

What Is Green Cleaning?

The primary goal of green cleaning is to protect the health of building occupants, visitors, and cleaning staff while working to reduce the polluting effects our work has on the environment. This is done by using sustainable equipment and supplies in our work. All of Strathcona Cleaners’ services follow the LEED Canada guidelines and are as green as we can make them!

What Makes Strathcona Cleaners’ Services Stand Out?

Strathcona Cleaners follow the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) Canadian requirements. LEED requires its companies too:

  • Use equipment that contains at least 50% renewable materials.

  • Use rechargeable batteries in all battery-operated equipment.

  • Use equipment that contains at least 10% recycled content.

What Are the Benefits of Green Cleaning?

The primary benefit of green cleaning is a healthier, cleaner building. However, some of the other benefits of green cleaning include:

  • Lower costs.

  • Reduced complaints regarding building cleanliness.

  • Better public image.

  • Increased indoor air quality.

How Do We Ensure Our Equipment Is Sustainable?

At Strathcona Cleaners we do many things to ensure our equipment is sustainable and environmentally friendly. This includes:

  • Using vacuum cleaners with a “green label”.

  • Using powered floor equipment that operates at below 70dBA sound level.

  • Using equipment with safeguards to prevent damages to building surfaces.

Protecting the environment is something that Strathcona Cleaners believes in strongly. With our industry-leading green services, we believe that we can lead the way forward in creating even more environmentally friendly practices.
