Is green cleaning more expensive?

It all depends on how you see it. Although green cleaning is not the cheapest service in the market It is not expensive either.  Customized successfully competes with other companies who are not practicing green cleaning. While we don’t win every bid, and, some we lose to a lower bidder, we are rarely the highest bidder. As a matter of fact when you come to consider where your company’s dollars are going, is it not more appealing to have your money go towards sustainable cleaning rather than into increasing our worlds pollution?

What benefit is there to green cleaning?

Green cleaning comes with an abundance of benefits, what we do is bring the benefits to you. Not only do you get a clean building while helping the environment at the same time, you also get to enjoy all of the implications that come with that.

We know that employees are what make a company work. For decades we have seen our industry have a history of poor behavior in regards to the chemicals we have used and the “throw-away” mentality we have had towards supplies and tools. Green cleaning interrupts this pattern with longer lasting, sustainable tools, and, chemicals with reduced or no toxicity. Now, we are seeing studies which record fewer sick days for employees of Green buildings, improved morale and other indications that better health for people results.
