An Eco-Friendly Explanation

We have all heard the words “green cleaning” and “eco-friendly,” but what do they really mean? Although sometimes used interchangeably, by definition they are different.

Green cleaning refers to using cleaning methods and products with environmentally friendly ingredients and procedures which are designed to preserve human health and environmental quality. While eco-friendly literally means earth-friendly or not harmful to the environment.

At Bishop we focus on using eco-friendly methods while still providing exceptional cleaning with the latest technology. Just take a look at the ways our eco-friendly initiative will improve your home or office and leave you feeling good about your environmental impact.

  • Less Chemicals: At Bishop, we’ve consolidated our chemicals to use fewer products on multiple surfaces. Only four chemicals are used for 95% of the cleaning in our Janitorial Division, which helps us reduce waste. These chemicals work together perfectly to give you the maximum clean without the additional harm to air quality or contribution to pollution.
  • Less Water: We use soft water, as opposed to hard water, to clean your floors and upholstery. By using soft water, we cut down on the amount of water used to rinse out the cleaning solution which saves you money and cuts down on water waste.
  • Less Trash: By maintaining your carpets and rugs with regular cleanings, your home and office will stay looking new longer. Fewer rugs and disposed carpet end up in landfills due to wear, tear and stubborn stains.
