Green Cleaning Products
The Southwestern custodial staff uses Stearns’ Green Seal® certified Neutral Cleaner, Restroom and Bowl Cleaner, and Winder Cleaner. These products are free of harmful ingredients, such as acid, alkyl or nonylphenols, solvents, glycol ethers, ammonia, and VOCs - thus curbing the negative impacts of cleaning products on health and the environment. The custodial staff also use safe and efficient cleaning tools, such as the Deionized Window Washing Equipment that clean the outdoor windows using only water.
