Although Green Cleaning does not have a single accepted definition, Sunshine has one clear objective as it relates to green cleaning: to enhance environmental health and workplace safety.
“Sunshine Green – Responsibly Clean” is a core philosophy for Sunshine. We recognize that cleaning products and practices have a direct impact on quality of life. We therefore strive to be good stewards when maintaining facilities, which is about “caring” for a building and going far beyond providing basic janitorial services.
Green Janitorial Equipment and Chemical Guidelines
- Vacuum cleaners that meet the requirements of the Carpet and Rug Institute Green Label Program and are capable of capturing 96% of particulates 0.3 microns in size and operate with a sound level less than 55 dBA.
- Hot water extraction equipment for deep cleaning carpets capable of removing sufficient moisture such that carpets can dry in less than 24 hours.
- Colour coded micro fibre cloths to reduce risk of cross contamination and reduced reliance on chemicals for cleaning. All micro fibre products are made in Canada.
- Eco Logo cleaning chemicals that reduce the harm to cleaners, building residents and the environment. All cleaning chemicals used by Sunshine are manufactured in Canada.
