Exceeding Health & Environmental Standards

At Ex-Zel Janitorial Services, we provide Green commercial cleaning services that meet or exceed health and environmental standards while providing cost effective benefits to achieve your property’s maintenance objectives.

Green cleaning is defined as the use of products and services that diminish the health and environmental impact associated to comparable products and services used for the same purpose. Another explanation of Green Cleaning is cleaning to protect human health while reducing the impact to the environment. Its objective is to safeguard the health of building occupants, visitors and cleaning personnel, as well as reducing polluting impacts on our natural resources. Unlike traditional cleaning, it goes far beyond simple appearance, concentrating on products and services that have less adverse health and environmental impacts as associated with those that might be used for the same purpose.

Ex-Zel Janitorial Services complies with criteria established by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and has assisted many clients towards LEED certification goals for their facilities. The USGBC’s supplies and materials category decrees the greenest material and waste management approaches a commercial vendor can apply. Products must be recycled or recyclable, and equipment that eliminate waste are awarded the highest scores.
