Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, that permit fulfilling the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations.”-EPA
Service Keepers Maintenance, Inc. prides in making sure our environment is Eco-friendly. By implementing CIMS-GB standards, EPA regulations, and Green Seal Certified products. SK not only makes sure our environment is kept green and safe, but also makes sure our employees’ health and safety are top priorities.
When Service Keepers decided to Go Green we knew it was going to be a challenge. SK first began with microfiber products back in the 90’s. Then slowly began to incorporate green products from Spartan Chemical Company. We saw a huge improvement in the way our employees cleaned and felt. We noticed a huge spike in chemical consumption, which obviously meant they were using the products more often and correctly to clean.
Going Green has become a culture for Service Keepers. When you think cleaning with green chemicals, you might think the chemicals will not get the job done, the chemicals are not aggressive enough for the job, which leads to a huge misconception. Employees can become so accustomed to certain cleaning products and scents that they never want try new cleaning chemicals. Service Keepers recognized the most important value from green chemicals, health. Once we teach the employees the value of green chemicals and the impact it can have on their lives, their attitudes completely change.
