Green Cleaning is cleaning to protect health without harming the environment. It is also about shared responsibility and stewardship. Occupants share the responsibility by communicating their needs and understanding the value of cleaning. Occupant activities can also have a tremendous effect on the cleanliness of our buildings; for example the coffee spill that goes unreported and turns into a stain which requires more aggressive methods to remove. Stewardship is about getting everyone in our buildings to care about our buildings.
The intent of our green cleaning program here at Ferris State University is to reduce the exposure of building occupants and maintenance personnel to potentially hazardous chemical, biological, and particulate contaminants, which adversely affect air quality, human health, building finishes, building systems and the environment.
We recognize that green cleaning is a significant component of indoor air quality, and that the contribution of indoor air quality to employee productivity is significant. We are committed to devoting the time and resources to perform these functions at an exemplary level. It is our policy to ensure that our building operates in an environmentally responsible manner and we demonstrate good environmental stewardship within our community. Our goal is to perform each of these strategies at the highest level of our abilities and comprehension.
It is our intent to engage in a green cleaning program that includes the following minimum sustainable green cleaning initiatives. Click on the subject title below:
