Research shows a clear link between poor indoor air quality,sick students and teachers, and poor academic and occupational performance. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency states that “children miss more than 14 million school days each year due to asthma exacerbated by poor indoor air quality”, which disproportionately affects low-income and minority students.
Green Cleaning can also help extend the longevity and performance of school building materials and furnishings by preventing damage and premature aging, which in turn reduces waste and unnecessary spending. You will be saving your business money in the long run if you are not having to replace carpet, floors..etc every year.
If you do not have a Green cleaning program at your school, now is the time to act.
