No matter what industry your company is in, these days conducting business in an environmentally sound fashion is more and more important. Customer and other businesses judge the quality of a company by its adherence to ‘green’ policies.
There’s no doubt that, however important the environment is (and despite a minority of dissenting voices the general consensus is that the environment is important), implementing a company-wide green policy can be a pain, and that pain gets more pronounced as the company gets bigger. Whether it’s making sure that employees are recycling properly or converting a building’s lighting to energy saving bulbs, environmentalism on a large scale is a logistical and managerial headache. But it has its benefits, besides saving the planet (important but somewhat intangible) many are more willing to do business with a company that has an environmentally friendly outlook.
Of course, keeping control of what is being done on company property is even trickier when you employ outside contractors and you need to be sure that their environmental policy tallies with your own before hiring anyone. This is especially the case when the outside contractors may be using products which are not environmentally friendly, such as professional cleaners.
In the area of professional carpet cleaning Ilkley can boast as many cleaning companies as any other city, but A1 Professional Cleaning has a particular commitment to environmental standards. And professional cleaning on a large commercial scale is an area where it is hard to maintain such standards.
A1 Professional Cleaning uses a process called Dry Fusion in which all the emulsifiers and greasy soil solublisers used are biodegradable and degrade quickly. On top of this the company uses as many products as it can which are detergent and phosphate free.
Upholstery Cleaning Ilkley
For any carpet cleaning company in Ilkley there is a line to be walked between achieving the levels of cleanliness that customers demand and sticking to environmentally sound practice which they also want. Many cleaning products are unfortunately no friend of the environment so it’s a tough ask. You could say that people are being too precious about the condition of their carpets, it’s just a bit of dirt after all, but there is also a hygiene issue to be considered. Carpets can retain all sorts of unpleasant particles which can cause allergic reactions or even worse. Bottom line; a thoroughly cleaned carpet is an absolute must for a healthy working environment for employees.
Despite being environmentally sound, Dry Fusion is an extremely thorough cleaning process, at least as thorough as the more traditional, and less green techniques. It uses a bactoshield to prevent the growth of mould, fungi and bacteria. It also incorporates a stain shield and it’s anti-static layer helps prevent the build up of dust. This is of course in addition to cleaning, deodorising and drying the carpet. The chemicals it uses are non-irritant as well as biodegradable, for the sake of those with sensitive noses and lungs.
In professional carpet cleaning Ilkley has few more trusted names than A1 Professional Cleaning, and this is not just because of their use of the Dry Fusion process. All the processes A1 Professional Cleaning uses answer the same high environmental standards of using cleaning products which are biodegradable and predominantly free of detergents and phosphates. Companies using A1 Professional Cleaning therefore have one less area to worry about when it comes to answering their ‘going green’ concerns’.
