Green Cleaning

  • Low VOC Paint is used on campus for better indoor air quality
  • Green Seal Cleaning chemicals are used because they are healthier and greener
  • Micro-fiber mops and towels are used for cleaning and then laundered to be re-used

    1. Fitness Center gym floor is cleaned with this method
    2. Ionized spray bottles are used on a rotational basis
    3. An auto scrubber is used for HAWAC floors
