A lot has changed in the way
commercial cleaning is done today
As a Coverall Franchise, Metro Cleaning Solution uses the Coverall Health-Based System to reduce the spread of germs and bacteria in the workplace. Long Island customers have benefited from our system since 1986.
Traditional commercial commercial cleaning service frequently rely on paper towels as a primary cleaning tool. Aside from massive deforestation, the manufacturing process of paper towels usually involves chlorine, a toxic chemical that releases carcinogenic dioxins and furans. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, the paper industry is the third largest industrial contributor to global warming. Our approach uses environmentally compatible microfiber cleaning cloths and flat-mop pads that can be washed and reused up to 500 times, helping to save our forests and reduce environmental impact.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that indoor air can be two to five times worse than the air quality outside, and most Americans spend up to 90% of their time indoors. Conventional commercial vacuums are an indoor air quality nightmare as they return 40% of the dirt they pick up. Our approach offers environmentally responsible multi-filtration backpack vacuuming with HEPA to improve indoor air quality by removing 99.7% of germs and allergens (down to 0.3 microns).
String Mops vs. Flat-Mop Technology
Water conservation is critical for sustainability, energy conservation and habitat conservation. Conventional janitorial services use string mops and open buckets that waste water because it is an open system where water becomes contaminated and needs to be disposed and refilled, depending on how quickly the water becomes soiled.
The Coverall approach uses a flat-mopping technology with a controlled dispensing system. The cleaning professional releases just enough clean water, plus solution, onto the surface to properly disinfect and remove dirt. Flat-mop technology is a no-dip system where the water and solution is never contaminated, so the entire bucket of water – plus disinfectant solution – is used in full.
Benefits of Health Based Cleaning
The Harvard Business Review reported sick employees cost American businesses over $150 billion a year in lost productivity. One sick employee can cost your company up to $500 per illness.
Illness-causing germs (such as influenza, H1N1, MRSA and the common cold) are working their way through your office, educational or commercial facility. Coverall understands when it comes to reducing the spread of infection; traditional janitorial cleaning services are not effective. String mops, upright vacuums and cotton rags actually add to the problem of workplace illness by spreading, not reducing, these illness-causing germs.
