Green Cleaning 2.0

We're pretty much implementing green cleaning programs in all of our new building, major renovation, or operations upgrade projects. This no-cost (actually a cost savings most of the time) switch is good for the environment and great for occupant and custodian health. Most of the time we recommend GreenGuard certified cleaning products (or an equivalent), usually delivered in a large container and then diluted to different degrees depending on the cleaning application. While this is still part of most green cleaning plans (along with microfiber cloths, HEPA vacuums, etc.), a relative new comer to the cleaning product list is ionized water. The Activeion Pro system charges the water and ionizes it to create an oxygen rich spray with lots of charged bubbles. The company claims to remove 99.9% of e-coli, staph, MRSA, listeria, and salmonella when used as directed. The cleaning crews don't have to worry about smell or toxicity and there isn't even an MSDS for the product. Once you have the device, just add water. As Sylvia demonstrates below, it looks and feels very similar to the spray bottles she uses for other cleaning products.
