One of the most popular green product lines is manufactured by Elements. All Elements products bear the benchmark Green Seal Certification. The products and dispensers are environmentally safe. Some of the products include a peroxide powered cleaner and degreaser, an all-surface cleaner and an organic acid restroom cleaner along with a non-ammoniated glass cleaner and a super duty degreaser.
For effective and proper use of these products, Elements recommends a combination of supervised education and training seminars. Like all green cleaning products, Elements’ cleaners are user-friendly with reduced health risks to workers and building occupants.
Take, for example, the peroxide powered cleaner or degreaser. This is a non-toxic, non-VOC biodegradable, hydrogen peroxide fortified, highly concentrated cleaner and degreaser. The product can be used to clean a variety of surfaces such as windows, walls, floors, tile and grout, fixtures, tubs showers, toilet bowls and urinals. The hydrogen peroxide oxidizes the soil and stains, destroys odors and provides color safe bleaching action.
The organic acid restroom cleaner is a concentrated organic heavy-duty multi-purpose cleaner that is designed to address the environmental, safety and health concerns of professional housekeepers. As a biodegradable product, this cleaner will not accumulate in the environment and will not contribute to waste treatment plant sludge. This is an excellent product to remove soap scum, mold, mildew, hard water deposits, rust stains, body oils, fats and dirt.
Green cleaning housekeepers are especially excited about the non-ammoniated glass cleaner. The ultra-concentrated ammonia-free, non-streaking, non-smearing, fast drying product cleans and shines glass, mirrors, sinks, countertops and stainless steel.
With traditional cleaning products, housekeepers tend to use the products that remove the dirt rather than products that befit the surface. This can leave unhealthy residue on surfaces with which building occupants have contact. Part of the effectiveness of today’s green products is the recommended training that goes along with the products.
