As an independent, science-based standards developer and certification body, Green Seal identifies products and services that are environmentally responsible, and provides public education for creating a more sustainable world.

Green Seal’s GS-37 establishes environmental requirements for industrial and institutional general purpose, restroom, glass, and carpet cleaners. It includes criteria to help protect vulnerable populations in institutional settings such as schools, daycare centers, nursing homes, and other facilities, while requiring that certified products remove common soils on surfaces effectively, without undesirable side effects.

 

PROCYON formulas have remained unchanged over the past 30 years, along with our strong commitment to human health and a clean environment,” said Plus Manufacturing’s founder Ivan Day.

 

According to Green Seal’s president, Arthur Wiseman, “Products meeting the criteria of GS-37 are among the greenest cleaning products available on the market. We commend Plus Manufacturing for its commitment to the GS-37 leadership standard to protect human health and the environment.

 

According to Green Seal...“The requirements in the GS-37 standard are based on an assessment of the environmental, health, or social impacts associated with the products covered in the scope of the standard.”

Green Seal also determined that PROCYON Soap Free products also do not contain reproductive toxins, volatile organic compounds, 2-butoxyethanol, alkylphenol ethoxylates, phthalates, and ozone-depleting compounds that contribute to the production of photochemical smog, tropospheric ozone, or poor indoor air quality.

Lastly, Green Seal determined that Plus Manufacturing offers training or training materials on the proper use of the product, including step-by-step instructions.

 

Asthmagen is defined as an asthma causing agent by the Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics (AOEC).

 

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways that impairs breathing. Asthma affects children and adults, may be intermittent or persistent, and is further classified as mild, moderate, or severe.

 

Chronic inflammation associated with variable airflow obstruction commonly causes difficulty breathing, coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and/or chest pain. Symptoms may resolve completely between active episodes or may occur during exposure, immediately after exposure, or up to 24 hours later in a “late phase,” frequently interrupting sleep.

How to maintain and keep your carpet clean

Carpet Cleaning Tips

 

Tip 1 – Make sure that you get a deep cleaning of the carpet as often as it is needed. To achieve a clean carpet, you’ll need to have it cleaned by a professional carpet cleaning company or you’ll need to use a deep cleaning machine. There are advantages and disadvantages to this method, although a thorough cleaning is needed every six months or so.

 

Tip 2 – Keep your eye out for spills and take care of them in a quick manner to keep your carpet clean. Simply using water on a spill will help most of them. If that doesn’t work, simply expand your search. You’ll find several products out there on the market that can help you get rid of spills quick.

 

The products range in use and can be helpful when matching them with the different types of spills. You can also use a mixture of water and vinegar to help you keep stains out. By taking immediate action you can prevent spills from becoming stains that leave you with a dirty and messy carpet.

 

Tip 3 – A clean carpet is a carpet that has been taken care of very well. You should always take the time to vacuum your carpet often and make sure you do a good job. This means going over the floor in several directions to allow the vaccum time to pick up all it can. High quality vacuums are the best choice, as they get up the most debris.

 

Tip 4 –The proper use of entrance will greatly help to clean off people’s shoes and keep most of the tracked soils off the surface of the carpet. You should always use entrance mats outside of your doors and make sure that anyone who enters your home use the mats to help get debris and dirt off of their shoes before they enter.

 

You can also take off your shoes and request that guests do the same, prior to entering your home.

 

Around 80% of the soils that enter a building or home are dry. The remaining 20% are greases, oils, and starches.
