Green Cleaning

Green Cleaning 

At SourceONE, we are focused on limiting our carbon footprint on the earth by using environmentally-friendly products and chemicals. With only one planet and ultimately a finite number of resources, making them last should be in the forefront of everyone’s minds.

SourceONE Building Maintenance offers green cleaning services to our commercial cleaning customers. Our mission is to keep you and your employees healthy, while reducing our impact on the natural resources of our planet. We offer commercial cleaning services to offices, industries, warehouses, biotech, pharmaceutical, nanotechnology, and other businesses. Call us today to get started!

There are lots of ways to define green cleaning, but in essence, green cleaning means to use cleaning products and detergents that are safe for the planet and for humans. These environmentally-friendly products are free from toxic chemicals, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and other harmful contaminants and pollutants that can harm our health and the planet’s health. Green cleaning products improve our world in three important ways

Air Quality

  • When you spray a cleaning agent, tiny drops of it hang in the air, and we can end up breathing that in. This can be extremely harmful to us and to those around us. This is especially harmful when the cleaning products are indoors because there is no place for these harmful airborne particles to go without a breeze to blow them away.


  • Let’s face it, most of us remember our mother’s bottle of bleach, ammonia, and other foul-smelling cleaning chemicals that were kept within easy reach of young kids who are naturally curious what bottles contain. By using only green cleaning products that are non toxic if ingested, you are protecting everyone around you.

Safe for our planet

  • Many traditional cleaning products contain petroleum-based agents. Petroleum, while cheap, is a nonrenewable resource that will one day run out. Furthermore, traditional cleaners contain a whole host of unknown chemicals that can potentially harm us and the planet if they get into our waterways and the food chain. By switching your cleaning agent, you can be saving the planet and its natural resources in one fell swoop.

What Makes a Cleaning Product “Green?”

Green products contain all-natural ingredients that “do no harm” to the environment, to people, and to animals. However, in order to help reassure people from those claiming to have green products, but in actuality, don’t, the Green Seal Certification program was started in 1989 with the mission to develop environmental standards for hundreds of products and services. It is a non-profit environmental certification organization that has since expanded its reach worldwide. Now, the best cleaning product companies use this label in order to tell assure customers that their products are, indeed, environmentally-friendly. The certification process can be lengthy and involved, with a feasibility assessment and outreach. However, the process is worth it, as customers won’t have to guess about the impact your product and/or service has on the environment.

Care is Still Needed

These days, it’s so easy to stick a label on a product that says “eco-friendly” or “all-natural,” and a lot of consumers will buy these products out of ignorance. Known as greenwashing, or falsely claiming your product or service is environmentally-friendly, this problem is rampant. Thus, it is still up to the consumer to do their due diligence, investigate the company and their products, and read the labels carefully for ingredient contents.

SourceONE Building Maintenance validates all of our green cleaning products in order to ensure they meet our strict requirements for leaving little-to-no impact on the environment. We investigate and look for independent certification programs, such as Green Seal, Safer Choice, and Ecologo, as well as other members of the Global Ecolabel Network, which is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to certifying business and products for environmental-friendliness.

Offering amazing commercial cleaning services is our number one goal here at SourceONE Building Maintenance. However, we believe that a lot of people can aim for that goal, and succeed. We believe that we have a bigger responsibility than to just ensure your doctor’s office’s trash is emptied, your cleanroom is free of pathogens, and your industrial warehouse has clean floors to prevent slips, trips, and falls.

We believe we have a bigger responsibility to our community at large and to our planet. By using certified green cleaning products in our commercial cleaning services , we believe we are helping everyone on this planet (and future generations) in some small way. In truth, doing this is not that much more work, and the joy we get from doing so is ever so worth it.

Our goals are simple: to provide the best commercial cleaning services, to act with integrity in all that we do, to grow our staff personally and professionally, and to be responsible in all that we do, including being responsible with the resources we are so very blessed to have. We are constantly striving to improve our processes so you have a better customer experience, and we are looking towards technology to help make your cleaning process smoother. By integrating technology, such as our computerized maintenance management system, which allows you to track your assets and inventory and schedule commercial cleaning services, we continue to push the envelope for what commercial cleaning can look like. We invite you to partner with us; call us today to begin making a small, cumulative difference in this world!
