With Viking Janitorial Going Green Does Not Cost More but Does Provide Great Benefits!

Vikings green cleaning program includes elements such as:

  • Chemical usage conservation and environmental impact reduction

  • Proper chemical concentration for maximum effectiveness

  • Faster drying times which enhance safety

  • Color-coded microfiber cloths for dusting, eliminating chemicals, preventing cross-contamination

  • Hepa-filtered backpack vacuums

The Viking green cleaning process ensures the success of your program. Basic principles of Green Cleaning include:

  • Focus on entryways inside and out. An important goal in cleaning green is to trap and remove dirt and pollutants before they enter the building and to frequently clean the entrances and entryway mats.

  • Minimize particles and chemicals in the air by mechanically capturing dust and dirt, using course spray for chemicals and applying the cleaner to the cloth rather than spraying the surface to be cleaned.

  • Use chemical management systems for accurate product dilution. We train our employees to use chemicals properly to minimize waste and maximize cleaning efficiency, an important element of cleaning green.

  • Empty vacuum bags at the end of shifts or when half full for cleaner and more efficient operating.

  • Ensure proper vacuuming, extraction, rinsing and drying. Carpets can be a host for moisture problems and mold growth. Green cleaning means minimizing these problems.

  • Focus on preventative measures. Our janitorial staff washes their hands and keeps equipment clean and well maintained.

  • Focus on touch-points. These are door handles, bright work and other areas where people come in contact with the facility or its fixtures. Focusing here makes cleaning green easier.

  • Apply disinfectant in restrooms properly and make sure the chemical has proper dwell time so that soil is thoroughly removed using less product.

  • Promote safety and prevent cross-contamination. Safer products and proper use and storage of chemicals help create a safer environment. Color-coded tools ensure that pollutants don’t get carried from one area (such as a restroom) to another.
