Commercial Cleaning Charleston SC

Why Commercial Cleaning in Charleston SC is Going Green

Conventional household cleaning products are harmful to you and your family and pets, the person cleaning your house and to the environment.

Avoid harm to your family:

Such products contribute to indoor air pollution, are poisonous if ingested, and can be harmful if inhaled or touched. In fact, some cleaners are among the most toxic products found in the home. In 2000, cleaning products were responsible for nearly 10% of all toxic exposures reported to U.S. Poison Control Centers, accounting for 206,636 calls. Of these, 120,434 exposures involved children under six, who can swallow or spill cleaners stored or left open inside the home.

Fragrances added to many cleaners may cause acute effects such as respiratory irritation, headache, sneezing, and watery eyes in sensitive individuals or allergy and asthma sufferers. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health has found that one-third of the substances used in the fragrance industry are toxic.

Other ingredients in cleaners may have low acute toxicity but contribute to long-term health effects, such as cancer or hormone disruption.

Avoid harm to your cleaning person:

Conventional household cleaning products are not only harmful to those humans and pets living in the home, but also harmful to the cleaners using them as many produce fumes that are highly irritating to eyes, nose, throat and lungs. These chemicals pose an added threat in that they can react with each other or other chemicals to form lung-damaging gases.

Avoid harm to the environment:

After cleaning liquids disappear down our drains, they are treated along with sewage and other waste water at municipal treatment plants, then discharged into nearby waterways. Some of the ingredients threaten water quality and fish and other wildlife. In a May 2002 study of contaminants in stream water samples across the country, the U.S. Geological Survey found persistent detergent metabolites in 69% of streams tested. Sixty-six percent contained disinfectants.

When certain detergent metabolites are discharged in municipal waste water, they mimic the hormone estrogen, and their presence in water may be harming the reproduction and survival of salmon and other fish.

When phosphates enter waterways, they act as a fertilizer, spawning overgrowth of algae. This overabundance of aquatic plant life eventually depletes the water’s oxygen supply, killing off fish and other organisms.

Another environmental concern with cleaning products is that many use chemicals that are petroleum-based, contributing to the depletion of this non-renewable resource and increasing our nation’s dependence on imported oil.

What to Expect from a Professional Commercial Cleaning Company in Charleston

Shine Green Cleaning focuses on trustworthiness, attention to detail, and experience as the three main things to expect.

1) Trustworthiness in Commercial Cleaning

Commercial cleaning services should carry general liability and bonding insurances. These cover any potential property damage or theft. Much more important though is that the company has thoughtfully compiled quality control procedures and systems (and tested them over time) to reduce there ever being an occurrence of negligence. A company that is truly conscientious will be able to tell you exactly what such policies they have in place.

2) Attention to Detail in Commercial Cleaning

A professional commercial cleaning company will show exceptional attention to detail not only in its cleaning quality, but as importantly, in its administrative procedures. Shine will deliver exactly the level of cleaning detail you require and just as importantly, Shine has carefully honed its administrative procedures and quality control systems over the years in order to provide a hassle-free and worry-free experience for the client. The goal is simple: Once you hire Shine, you can forget about the cleaning and leave it to us, knowing it is being done safely, consistently and with the highest quality.

3) Experience with Commercial Cleaning in Charleston SC

Truly great customer service is a product of experience and what a company does with it. The cleaning company has to pay attention to all the lessons it can gain through experience in order to create a service that makes the client’s life and work easier.

Shine has 12 years experience in green office cleaning. Shine constantly hones its customer-specific checklists and procedures as it gains more knowledge of what each kind of customer wants. We believe a company should never assume it has it all figured out. We stay open to learning opportunities and enjoy the process of continual improvement. It makes work more fun and fulfilling.
