Harmful chemicals that are usually found in commercial cleaning products are formaldehyde and ammonia. Exposure to these chemicals can create health issues such as, skin irritations, head aches, and respiratory problems.The more concentrated a chemical is the more harmful it will be.
The EPA also states that “using less hazardous products that have positive environmental attributes and taking steps to reduce exposure can minimize harmful impacts to custodial workers and building occupants, improve indoor air quality, and reduce water and ambient air pollution while also ensuring he effectiveness of cleaning in removing biological and other contaminants from the buildings interior”.
Lets face it, no one wants their employees to be out sick from being exposed to high amounts of chemicals!
